Just another street car...

OK, The View from the Pits is supposed to focus on motorsports, but sometimes we need to relax the regulations a bit. Case in point: the Lamborghini Veneno.

The Geneva auto show opens to the public on Thursday, and the event is known for debuting some of the most over-the-top supercars imaginable. Among the cars to be revealed this year is the new McLaren P1, with production limited to 375 units at about $1.3 million each. But even those heady figures are eclipsed by the Veneno, likely the most amazing supercar to emerge from Lamborghini’s Sant'Agata Bolognese, Italy headquarters.

Bearing a price tag of roughly $4 million per vehicle – hey, carbon-fiber aint cheap! - Lamborghini will produce just three of these cars. And they are indeed cars, although they certainly look like they could fly.

With a 6.5-litre V-12 making the muscle, the Veneno is expected to top out at roughly 220 mph.

If any of The View from the Pits readers ends up with a Veneno and would like to offer a test drive to see if we can actually reach that lofty velocity, feel free to get in touch. Please!
