Lamborghini unveils $3.9 million supercar

GENEVA (AP) - Who buys a €3 million ($3.9 million) car? Not you.

Lamborghini's run of the new Veneno is sold out - though it only made three.

The latest in its tradition of bespoke cars, the Veneno is the fastest, most powerful Lamborghini ever built. At the Geneva Motor Show, where it was revealed Monday night, Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann made sure to rev the engine as he drove the car out on stage.

Rest assured, the Veneno, which is named for an infamous fighting bull, sounds like a Lamborghini.

But why build a car for just three people?

"It gives you a high degree of freedom in terms of the design, you can test materials and new technologies, it has a halo effect on the other products," said Winkelmann. "Last but not least, you're fulfilling dreams, at least for a few people."

Whoever buys this should say one phrase every time they step out of it: I'm Batman!

Hmm, maybe because they are sold for $4 million?

You get over it and drive the piss out of it. As long as you let the engine warm up properly, it's better to drive it than not to.

Believe it or not, car insurance on cars like that is way cheaper than you'd think. I'd have to ask an insurance agent who would give me an honest answer to find out, but I suspect it's because the vast majority of people that buy cars that expensive don't drive irresponsibly with them. Out of curiosity I checked insurance rates maybe 4-5 years ago on my current car, (2002 Hyundai Sonata dark blue 4-door V6) and then checked for a brand-new Porsche 911 Turbo in Guard Red. Insurance quotes were about 10-15% cheaper for the Porsche. Kind of annoyed me, lol.

Your bank declined the debit card transaction with the reason stated as "You can afford the touch-up paint for this model of vehicle."

:lol:

3 people bought one for 3.9 million. Let the bidding start at 20 million.

Makes sense it would be lower. As you said

1) People who buy really expensive cars tend to drive more carefully

And I would venture

2) People who buy really expensive cars are likely very safe investors because of their wealth... so insurance companies know they are getting someone reliable who will always pay their insurance costs.
