Lamborghini Veneno – Only Three Cars Available For Sale

Take a look at the new Lamborghini Veneno car. This car has taken the world by storm. Even though it is priced at a huge US $3.9 million, it got sold out within a very short time. The name of this car ‘Veneno’ comes from one of the fastest and most aggressive fighting bulls in Italy.

It was launched at the Geneva Motor Show held in March 2013, to celebrate the golden jubilee of Automobili Lamborghini. This is very limited-edition car, and only three models of the car will be built. The sports car has strong aerodynamics, and is like a race car which can be used on normal roads.

Features of the Lamborghini Veneno 

The Lamborghini Veneno has a maximum output of 552 kW/ 50 hp, and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in only 2.8 seconds. Speed guns beware! It has an astonishing top speed of 355 km/h, and obviously cannot be chased by cops in their simple cars.

Interior of the awesome Lamborghini car

The exterior of the car is made from carbon-fiber materials, with the car’s complete chassis being manufactured as a CFRP monocoque, as is the outer skin. The interior of the Veneno sports car is made from Lamborghini’s finest patented materials, such as Forged Composite and CarbonSkin.

The sports car has alloy wheels of different sizes. While the rear alloy-wheels measure 21-inches, the front alloy wheels measure 20-inches. The Lamborghini Veneno has a grey metallic color, with individual parts painted with black paint. Each model of the car has accents in a single colour of the Italian flag, which is red, green and yellow.

It has been named the LaFerrari car, and has the famous ‘prancing horse’ logo on its bonnet and the sides of its butterfly doors. This fast car has F1-inspired aerodynamics, and the latest driving technologies. Just imagine the thrill of driving it in your town. I was simply amazed when I saw photos of it.

The Ferrari LaFerrari car has been targeted at people who like to collect Ferrari cars, and sell them at a later date for huge premiums. It has dynamic controls, which were previously seen only on Formula One Ferraris, like the one Michael Schumacher and Fernando Alonso used to drive.

The interior design of the car is very luxuriousm, and features a human-machine interface that is usually seen in single-seater F1 cars. It also has the advanced HY-KERS system. In fact, the LaFerrari is the first Ferrari car to be powered by this system, and also has an amazing 6262 CC V12 engine. Everyone wants to know about the price of this car, but no information about this car's price has been announced as yet.

The Kohinoor Diamond

The Kohinoor Diamond is one of the most famous diamonds in the world. It is also one of the oldest. It was discovered in the late 13th or 14th century, and originally belonged to the Delhi Sultanate of India, which was at that time, led by Sultan Allaudin Khilji.

The Kohinoor Diamond

There is also a bit of superstition associated with the Kohinoor diamond. While the Koh-i-noor diamond is held to bring misfortune or death to any man who wears or owns it, it is supposed to bring good luck to any woman who does the same.

The Diamond in the British Crown Jewels

In the fifteenth century, the Kohinoor Diamond passed into the hands of Babur, the founder of the Mughal Dynasty of emperors. During this period, the diamond was known as the Babarnama diamond. The Kohinoor diamond continued to be in the ownership of the Mughal emperors, until it was grabbed by Nadir Shah, an invader from Persia.

The Babarnama diamond was renamed the Kohinoor Diamond by Nadir Shah, who took the diamond from Mughal Emperor Muhammad Shah, after he captured Delhi and Agra in 1739. Kohinoor means ‘mountain of light’. Check out this video:

In 1851, the Kohinoor Diamond was surrendered by Emperor Ranjit Singh, its last owner, to Queen Victoria of Britain. This was after Emperor Ranjit Singh lost a battle against the mighty British forces in India. It was later added to the British Crown Jewels.

The Koh-i-noor Diamond originally weighed a huge 186 carats. It was cut and polished down to the size of 108.93 carats, when it was made a part of the British crown jewels.
