"This, then, is a three-of-a-kind - and completely road-legal - showroom based on the Aventador. It has the same 6.5-litre V12, boosted to 739bhp with a 220mph max It has the same permanent 4WD, inboard pushrod suspension and carbon monohull chassis. It costs three million Euros - more tax - and the trio of owners has already been found ... Lambo's 50th birthday ... "- Top Gear on the Lamborghini Veneno.

Based on the Lamborghini Aventador, the Veneto was introduced to celebrate Lamborghini's 50th anniversary as a motor car manufacturer. When launched at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show the Veneto was priced at the US $ 4,000,000, making it one of the world's most expensive production cars, it was somewhat misplaced.

Its Aventador precursor had been launched at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, replacing the ageing Murcielago as Lamborghini's flagship model. Designed by Filippo Perini, the new mid-engine cut off from Lamborghini's limited edition Reventón and its Estoque concept car. One of its more striking features on the scissor doors - a 21st Century supercar 'must-have'.

Like its predecessors, the newcomer was powered by a V12 engine, in the Aventador's box all-new 6½-liter unit producing 690bhp. Power reached the ground via a seven-speed semi-automatic gearbox and electronically controlled four-wheel drive transmission. A top speed of 359km / h (217mph) was claimed by the factory, yet the French Sport Auto magazine managed to wind 'their' car up to 370km / h (230mph).

Lamborghini's aim with the Veneto was a close approximation to a sports-racing prototype that would still be road legal, which entailed making a big departure from the styling of previous Lamborghini models. The Veneno retained the Aventador's carbon-fibre monocoque chassis with its aluminium front and rear sub-frames and push-rod suspension; the body, though, has been extensively redesigned to improve airflow and increase, to which end the wide carbon-fibre rear wing was three-way adjustable. Measuring 20 "in diameter at the front and 21" at the rear, the centre-lock alloy wheels have turbine-like carbon rings that the carbon-ceramic brakes. Pirelli P-Zero tires were used. The interior was based largely on the Aventador's but also incorporated the 'carbon skin'

The engine found in the Veneto was a development of the Aventador's 6.5-liter V12 featuring improved energy efficiency and improved energy efficiency (up to 750 PS / 740bhp). The Aventador's seven-speed semi-automatic transmission was likewise retained, with a new 'track' setting for improved performance on racing circuits. The Veneno has a top speed of 356kph (221mph) and can reach 97kph (60mph) from a standing start in only 2.8 seconds. It is understood that Lamborghini built only four examples of the Veneto: the Geneva Show car, chassis zero, which is retained by the factory, and three cars for customers.

The roadster version of the Veneto was unveiled on the Italian Navy's aircraft carrier Cavour while it was docked in Abu Dhabi's Mina Zayed port in 2014, and it also appeared at that year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Performance of the Roadster was claimed to be similar to that of the Coupe despite the fact that it was 50kg heavier because of the deficiency. Only nine Veneno Roadsters were built, of which € 3,300,000 (excluding tax).

Number '7' of the nine produced, this stunning Lamborghini Veneno Roadster has covered only 325km and is presented in 'as new' condition throughout, with the exception of a slight scratch on the right rear wheel. We are advised that the engine starts instantly but the battery needs to be changed, while the tyres are new (dated 2015). Finished in off-white with beige interior, this car features the owner's initials on the front and on the doors. Representing a possibly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, it comes complete with the owner's handbook and covers all the books and tools, and Equatorial Guinea registration papers and technical inspection.

VAT, Car Tax and Customs Duty at the standard rates will be payable on this lot if the remains in Switzerland.

Bonhams is the guarantor of the customs duties and taxes of that year.

Lamborghini Veneno Roadster 2014
Chassis # ZHWEB3ZD4FLA03007

• The 7th of the 9 only products
• 325 km since new
• As new
• With all its documents and tools onboard

"This is an exceptional Aventador masterpiece, approved for the road, which has taken over the 6.5-litre V12, raised to 750 horsepower and reached 354 km / h. permanent all-wheel drive, tilting suspension and carbon monocoque chassis, costing three million euros plus tax and its three owners are already identified, it was built to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Lambo ... "Top Gear, about the Lamborghini Veneno.

Derived from the Lamborghini Aventador, the Veneno was decided to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Lamborghini's car manufacturer activity. At its launch at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, it was displayed at four million US dollars, making it one of the most expensive production cars in the world, even if, for a production limited to three copies, the term of "series" could be discussed.

Its predecessor, the Aventador, was launched at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show to replace the ageing`` Murcielago as the manufacturer's flagship. This new mid-engined coupe, due to Filippo Perini's pencil, had borrowed a lot from the limited edition Reventón and the Estoque concept car. One of its most prominent features was its overhead doors,

Like those that preceded it, the newcomer used a V12, in this case, a new 6.5-litre 700 horsepower. This power was transmitted to the road by a seven-speed semi-automatic gearbox and an electronically controlled all-wheel drive. The factory claimed a top speed of 359 km / h, but the French magazine Sport Auto managed to bring "his" copy to 370 km / h.

Lamborghini's goal on the Veneno was to get as close as possible to a racing prototype while remaining homologous for the road, which required to deviate significantly from the style of the previous cars of the brand. The Veneno took over the monocoque carbon fibre chassis of the Aventador, as well as its aluminium front and rear cradles and its rocker suspensions. But the body had been deeply redesigned to improve airflow and increase ground plowing efforts, with a huge carbon-fibre rear spoiler, adjustable in all three directions. The central nut alloy wheels, 20 inches in front and 21 inches in the rear, were equipped with carbon bladders charged with supplying cooling air to the carbon-ceramic brakes. They were wearing Pirelli P-Zero tires. The interior was largely that of the Aventador, with the addition of the "carbon skin" upholstery introduced on the Aventador J, built to a single copy.

The engine of the Veneno was an extrapolation of the Aventador's 6.5-liter V12, to which an enlarged intake and a modified exhaust allowed to reach 750 horses. The seven-speed semi-automatic gearbox of the Aventador had, as expected, been extended, provided however with a new setting "track" to improve the performance of the car on the circuit. The Veneno reached a speed of 356 km / h and shot down 0 to 100 km / h in just 2.8 seconds. It is considered that Lamborghini has built only four copies of the Veneno: the zero chassis of the Geneva Salon, kept by the factory, and three copies of customers.

The roadster version of the Veneno was presented in 2014 on the Cavour, the aircraft carrier of the Italian Navy, while it was moored in the port of Mina Zayed, Abu Dhabi. She also made an appearance the same year at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The performance of the roadster was announced identical to that of the coupe, despite the 50 kg of reinforcement of the chassis that it had to support to compensate for the absence of flag. There were only nine Veneno Roadster products, all sold at the announcement of their launch, despite a list price of three million Euros excluding taxes.

This magnificent Lamborghini Veneno Roadster, number 7 on the nine produced, has travelled only 325 km and is like new, with the exception of a small scratch on the right rear wheel. We have been informed that the engine starts at the quarter turn, but that you have to change the battery, and that the tires are new (from 2015). This car, off-white with a beige interior, bears the initials of its owner at the front and on the doors. This is an opportunity we only meet once in a lifetime. It is complete, in possession of its user manual, its cover, all its documentation on board and its tools, documents of registration of Equatorial Guinea and its technical control.

VAT, vehicle tax and customs duties at current rates will be payable on this lot if the vehicle remains in Switzerland.

As Bonhams remains the guarantor of customs duties and taxes, this car can not be recovered by the buyer or its carrier immediately after the sale.
