Lamborghini makes quite a lot more cars than it used to a few decades ago. Every football and poker player needs to have his doors go up sky-high, but only a few folks can afford to buy the more exotic cars made by Sant'Agata Bolognese.
We're talking about the legendary Lamborghini Veneno. Owning one of these is supposed to be the equivalent of touching the toe of God himself. Built entirely from carbon fiber, these things cost a small fortune and are rarely seen out in public.

So far, we've only seen one at a time, but at the recent Blancpain Endurance Series race at the Paul Ricard circuit in France, Lamborghini showed two at the same time. The gray one is probably the first example built, which stays in the family, so to speak.

A couple of years after revealing the coupe, the Italians introduced a roadster version that was even more over-the-top. The red one belongs to this category, and you should know only 9 exist.

The coupe is priced at about $4 million, and the drop-top is $4.5 million, so together these things are worth over $8 "rocks," as the Sopranos would put it. With that kind of cash, you could buy about 400 average cars, enough for a whole village.

But who needs 400 cars when you can have 1,500 horses. Both Venenos are equipped with 6.5-liter V12 engines. They have an output of 750 PS, the same as the Aventador SV, which is supposedly enough to reach 62 mph (100 km/h) in 2.8 seconds.

But the evil Lambo is not the car you want to drive fast, it's the one you look at for hours on end, wondering what crimes you need to commit to afford one.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
