Lamborghini's 50th Anniversary Gift

By Alysha Steltzer | Mar 12, 2013
I like to think of the automotive industry as it's own separate world were Newton's Third Law applies that with every action there's an equal and opposite reaction. So in theory, as the cars get smaller and smaller integrating hybrids into the mix, it would only make sense that the cars would have to get bigger and more powerful to balance the auto world. Not necessary meaning bigger in size like a Hummer but more horsepower.

While Toyota is working on their latest Prius which is powered by a four cylinder and electric motor that combines to make a whopping 134hp the auto world desperately needed to balance it's self out. Maybe a little to much.

Celebrating it's 50th anniversary the Italian super powerhouse car company Lamborghini unleashed it's new spawn into the world. Say hello to the new Lamborghini Veneno (Spanish for poison) with a V12 that produces 750 hp and capable of accelerating from zero to 62 mph in 2.8 seconds. It's the fastest non-racer ever built by Lamborghini. All you have to do is feed it three Pruis in the morning for breakfast (does anyone know what the plural of Prius is? Is it really Prii?).

Granted only three models will be made and each are priced at a staggering 4 million dollars (no you did not read that wrong. It's million x four). But I believe it's safe to say the auto world is at peace.

The bigger question is if you were lucky enough to have 4 million dollars would you spend it on one car?
