The Lamborghini Veneno reset our understanding of what an ultra-exclusive, ultra-expensive supercar should be. With an astronomical price of $4.6 million, we thought we’d never see a car with a price that high again. Well thanks to the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster, with one less roof and $700,000 more on the base price, we’d be wrong.

Lamborghini, the super sports car manufacturer has officially announced the Veneno Roadster, which will be one of the world’s most exclusive automobiles. Only nine units of the sports car will be manufactured during the course of 2014 and will be priced at 3.3 million Euros (around Rs. 27.7 crore).

The Veneno Roadster offers an intense driving experience, and will not have roof, just a strong rollover bar for optimum safety. The main design focus is to get optimum aerodynamics and stability through fast corners, with handling matches the racing prototype.

Under the hood, the super sports car gets a 6.5-litres, 12-cylinder engine that develops a massive 750bhp. The engine is mated to a semi-automatic gearbox with five shift modes. It will accelerates from 0 to 100kmph in just 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of 355kmph.
