Lamborghini Veneno

You've seen leak after leak along with official shots and specifications, and now, finally, you can see actual live shots of the Lamborghini Veneno taken at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show our very own DSLR lenses. You knew Lambo would do some crazy to celebrate its 50th anniversary, and you were right: The Veneno is absolute insanity wrapped in carbon fibre and festooned with scoops, wings and fins.

Not coincidentally, Lamborghini decided to name its masterpiece Veneno, a fighting bull that reportedly gained notoriety in 1914 when it killed a matador. Let's hope that's not a foreshadow of things to come. Of course, this wedge-shaped racecar-for-the-street boasts 750 horsepower and a ludicrous top speed of 350 km/h (220 mph) so it's certainly best to handle the Veneno with care.

Not that you'll every get the chance to try – the Veneno carries an asking price of three million euros, which is around $4.2 million Canadian. And even if you've got that kind of cash between your couch cushions, you still couldn't buy one. Lamborghini has committed to making just three of these bulls, and each of them has already found a home.

Totally outrageous, but awesome. This could be the new default car poster on every kids bedroom wall, like the Countach was for my generation.
