2015 Lamborghini Veneno

In celebration of the marque’s 50th anniversary, the matte-black 2015 Veneno roadster will go up for auction as part of RM Sotheby’s upcoming Paris sale. One of just nine Venenos roadsters ever produced, it is powered by a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V-12 engine mated to a 7-speed ISR semi-automatic transmission, which churns out 750 bhp.

Then, there is the name. Lamborghini says Veneno comes from “one of the strongest and most aggressive fighting bulls ever,” a bull that famously killed a matador in 1914. The car has just 280 miles on the odometer. With an original price tag of $4m, the estimate is $5m to $6.1m.
