The paint color on this car is a custom-made shade called "Rosso Veneno," but buyers can choose any color they like.
While the car is priced at $4.5 million -- $500,000 more than the Veneno coupe -- it will actually be easier to get, provided you can afford it. Lamborghini's plans to build the car were announced in August.
That's because Lamborghini will produce nine of these cars during 2014. Production of the coupe was capped at just four, one of which is being kept at the Lamborghini museum.
The Veneno Roadster is not a convertible. It has no roof at all, only a roll bar for crash safety. The all-wheel-drive car is powered by a 750 horsepower 6.5-liter V12 engine and can go from zero to 62 miles an hour in just 2.9 seconds, according to Lamborghini. The car's top speed is 221 miles per hour.
The Roadster is made almost entirely from carbon fiber-reinforced polymers. Even soft interior materials are made from a woven carbon fiber fabric. Unike the Veneno coupe, which was available to the public only in three pre-determined color schemes, buyers will be able to choose their own paint colors for this car.
