It’s been nearly a year since the last Geneva Auto Show, where Lamborghini celebrated its 50th anniversary with the unveiling of its Veneno, a $4 million hypercar based loosely on the Aventador that we love, love, love. Since then, there have been pics and video aplenty of the Veneno coupes and roadsters in the desert, on the track, and sitting next to fighter jets in the UAE. However, we haven’t seen a single shot of the car prowling around on the street.
Well, that’s about to change, since Veneno No. 2 has finally been delivered to its buyer in Miami Beach. According to our friends over at the duPont Registry, the Lamborghini’s new owner, Kris Singh, just completed the highest-ever recorded transaction for a new car, at $4,106,000. Singh is the manager of a private investment firm.
The Veneno is powered by a 6.5-liter V12 engine, which produces a blistering 740 horsepower, capable of launching the car from 0-60 in only 2.9 seconds, and a top speed of 220 miles per hour. Lamborghini has only produced three Veneno coupes, each of which was spoken for many, many months ago.
Check out this video of the delivery of the man we currently envy most.
