The Mightiest Lamborghini of All Loses Its Top

The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster is crazy-looking, sickeningly fast, and only costs $4.5 million!

What happens when you take the most badass car in the world and get rid of the roof? The answer is the just-announcedLamborghini Veneno Roadster. Having driven the topless version of its little brother, the Gallardo, we can say with absolute certainty that there is nothing more fun than an open-air Lambo. (And with this model, “open” truly means open; there is no roof, just a rollover bar for safety.) Is your heart pounding yet?

Considering this one of the the fastest (it hits 60 mph in a seat-wetting 2.9 seconds and hits a mind-boggling top speed of 221), most exclusive (they’re making, uh, nine of them) raging bulls ever built, getting behind the wheel will definitely be an exciting experience for whatever prince or oil baron can swing it. (We’re quite certain they won’t be entrusting this model to any journalists. Wise move, Lambo!) Be sure not to short-circuit your keyboard as you drool over these pics.
