Lamborghini held a special customer and media event in the Middle East to display its new £2.7 million Veneno roadster on Italian naval aircraft carrier Nave Cavour.
Production of the new model will be limited to just nine examples following a limited run of three for the Veneno coupe. Each open top V12 Veneno comes with a maximum power output of 750hp and a 0-62mph of 2.9 seconds.
VIPs, media and authorities all attended the exclusive “Italian evening” where the Veneno was formally unveiled on the flight deck of the 240 metre ship while docked in Abu Dhabi's Mina Zayed port.
Stephan Winkelmann,president and chief executive of Lamborghini, said: “The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster is one of the world's most exclusive cars with the most extraordinary performance.
"We are honored that Lamborghini was chosen to represent the Italian car industry in the UAE, as a perfect example of iconic Italian super sports cars, and that we have the opportunity to show the Veneno Roadster for the first time in Abu Dhabi. Lamborghini has an extremely strong following in the region for its super sports cars, with the Middle East one of our largest markets in the world."
Each Veneno customer will be able to individualize the colour of their Veneno Roadster to suit their personal preference.
