Lamborghini Veneno: Whoever paid 4.7 Million before seeing the car, must be in love

Lamborghini Veneno at Geneva Motor Show 2013. What a beautiful way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Lamborghini? Italians were inspired and went big with an exclusive hypercar. So exclusive that although costs EUR 3.6 million, customers were more than eager to buy the three copies.

Lamborghini Veneno – Happy 50th Anniversary

It seems that the battle to own a Lamborghini Veneno was won by the North American continent, where two of the three promised specimens produced at Sant’Agata Bolognese will arrive. The third one will reach a mysterious client from the Middle East, a market hungry for such supercars.

Europe will remain only with the Lamborghini Veneno prototype, exposed at Museo Lamborghini (Via Modena 12, 40019 Sant’Agata Bolognese, Bologna, Italia). Michael Lock, Head of Lamborghini USA said that he wanted to see all three copies in the United States, given the large number of requests. But Lamborghini sorted very strictly the prospective customers.

Antoine Dominic and Kris Singh were chosen from the United States. Dominic is a longtime customer and owner of the Lamborghini Long Island showroom. Previously, he held a Ferrari F40 followed by F50 and even an Enzo. Currently he also owns a Maserati MC12 and a special Bentley ISR.

On the other hand, Kris Singh already has more than 30 years old and is the chief executive of Tequesta Investments, Florida. He puts the supercar’s success on behalf of financial and development efforts of the Volkswagen parent, and gives credit to the VW company for creating the best car in the world – Bugatti Veyron – by marrying a Beetle to an Audi TT RS. He was in love with Ferrari 430 Scuderia and 16M Limited Edition, but quickly recognized that would choose a Gallardo Superleggera or Performante. The decision is purely aesthetic.

To own the new Lamborghini Veneno, the three customers had to pay EUR 3.6 million (£3.1 mil / $4.7 mil).
