Everything in this video smells like money.
The 2013 Geneva Motor Show was one for the books. It was where the LaFerrari and McLaren P1 each had their big debuts. As for Lamborghini, it brought along something truly eye-catching and, perhaps, a bit controversial in style. The Lamborghini Veneno was also presented to the world for the first time at the 2013 Swiss show, but not everyone was a fan. Developed to celebrate the company's 50th anniversary, the Veneno's exterior design is pretty wild and it has Lamborghini Aventador underpinnings. It's something only Lamborghini could get away it.
As one of the most expensive production cars in the world with a $4 million price tag, Veneno production was also very limited to only five examples. A roadster variant arrived later of which just nine units were made. For owners, it's important to properly maintain their ultra-exclusive hypercars, such as having them detailed.
In other words, you gotta take your multi-million dollar car to the spa every now and then. What does something like this look like? Topaz Detailing just posted a new video where the entire process is explained and filmed.
The first step? Decontamination. Every spec of dirt must be removed with special horsehair brushes. The car is then sprayed with filtered water, followed by a citrus solution that further removes dirt from panel gaps and other hard to reach areas.
Before foam is applied, Topaz rinses the car again and then a lamb wool mitten is used to rub it down. It's vital to maintain proper washing methods otherwise the delicate paintwork could get damaged.
Next, the Veneno is placed in a detailing bay where each wheel is cleaned. A ceramic coating is applied to the wheels and calipers, and finally, each wheel arch is steam cleaned. The next stage is a PPF bay where a paint protection film is carefully added. Before the owner arrives to pay the bill, which is probably roughly the same as a used car, two quality checks are performed.
Obviously this level of detailing isn't normal. Then again, the Lamborghini Veneno isn't your normal car.
