THE Lamborghini Veneno Rs 50 crore hypercar experience


Lamborghini Veneno ~~ akshay

This car is supremely rare and would cost an obscene amount of money — about Rs 50 cr (after duties) if it was still on sale! It actually happens to be one of only four cars in existence. Three cars were immediately accounted for by private buyers while this one belongs to Lamborghini. Now you get just how big a deal this is. Any sane auto maker would have this prized creation hermitically sealed off in a museum somewhere but this is Lamborghini we’re talking about. The masters of insanity. Which is why they thought it would be a great idea to make the car’s dynamic debut on a very cold and dangerously wet race track.ImageImage

Obviously, I manned up and set out in the track focused 570PS Gallardo LP 570-4 Performante. 30 seconds into the first lap and I’d already scared myself silly. The car was rock hard, pin sharp and had a distinct dislike for standing water. And it wanted to spin up all the time in any of the first three gears. Thank God for four-wheel drive! By the end of the second lap I was getting used to the razor sharp throttle response and twitchy handling in the wet but it was time to jump into the big daddy. The ferocious 700PS Aventador is easily the most powerful car I’ve driven and felt ridiculous in every way, whether it was the sheer size of the thing, the screaming banshee of an engine or the violent gearshifts. Two laps later I awkwardly got out through the scissor door feeling more alive than ever, but even more excited about what was to come next.Image

The 750PS Aventador based V12 screams its way to the 8000-odd rpm red line and sounds even louder than the race Gallardos. Blood curling would be an apt description. And then there’s the mid corner grip. The Veneno doesn’t just look like a race car with lights; it is one. Sanna wasn’t letting off in the corners, splashing through puddles to find apexes and controlling a slithering monster on exits.ImageImage
