Lamborghini unveils the Veneno Roadster on an aircraft carrier

As I said at Torque News when writing about this:

How do you unveil a new Lamborghini? On an aircraft carrier, of course. The world premier of the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster happened in Abu Dhabi on the Marina Militare’s Portaerei Cavour.

That basically sums it up. Here you have a vehicle selling for 3.3 million Euros (plus tax) and only nine of them will be made next year. But for that huge amount of jang, you get a car capable of 0-62 mph in 2.9 seconds thanks to 720 horsepower. Its top speed is 220.5 mph thanks to that 6.5-liter V12 under the.. er.. engine cover (it’s mid-mounted).

Everything about this car is designed for speed. It’s an open roadster with all of its aerodynamic flow meant to push the car down into the pavement as it flies. It’s light 1,490 kilos), fast, and awesome.

Me wants. How about you?
