And we bet he's making a handsome profit on the sale.
We can't speak from experience, but if we had the opportunity to buy a rare, limited edition hypercar, we think we'd probably want to hang onto it. The owners of these rare cars obviously don't share our sentiment and often put them up for sale to make a healthy profit. This is exactly the case with this Lamborghini Veneno that is currently being sold on German website Mobile.de. The car is listed for 8 million Euros, which is about $9.6 million. With just 112 miles on the odometer, this Veneno is practically brand-new.
We think it's a shame that such a car was barely driven before being put up for sale. Although if our car was one of just three available in the world we may be less inclined to want to drive it on the road as well. Lamborghini only built five Veneno coupes in total. One was only for testing, and another is kept by Lamborghini to celebrate its own 50th anniversary. For those who don't remember, the Veneno was released back in 2013 with a $4.5 million price tag. If this car does sell for $9.6 million, it will represent huge appreciation that will obviously benefit the owner. It is good to see a special edition Lamborghini model appreciate for once.
We recently saw a Lamborghini Reventon selling for less than its original MSRP. The Reventon was pretty rare with just 21 units made, but that's still more than the Veneno and not as radical from a design standpoint. We've also seen another Veneno listed for $11 million, so perhaps the car isn't worth as much as everyone initially thought. The Veneno is powered by a 740-horsepower 6.5-liter V12 engine from the Aventador. The car can sprint from 0-62 mph in just 2.8 seconds, although this particular car has never been driven on the track or public roads since delivery. The Veneno is definitely rare, but we'd love to see someone buy it to actually use.
