What will one of nine Lamborghini Veneno Roadsters cost you? $4.5 million dollars - all in the name of extreme exclusivity. Reaching 0-62mph in a blistering 2.9sec will make escaping the wagging finger of your banker much easier though. The Veneno Roadster is one of the world's most exclusive automobiles, which is why it recently received the most elaborate of debuts.

On December 1, 2013 the Veneno Roadster made its public debut aboard the Italian naval aircraft carrier Nave Cavour at an 'Italian evening' attended by VIPs, media, and those that can actually afford this Roadster. Docked in Abu Dabi's Mina Zayed port, guests included Giorgio Starace, Italian Ambassador to the UAE and Admiral of High Seas Forces, Paolo Treu, singer and actress Elena Bonelli as well as former captain of the national Italian soccer team and 2006 world champion Fabio Cannavaro, to name a few.

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 as one of our largest markets in the world."
