Lamborghini debuted its Veneno, a controversial $3.9-million piece of automotive sculpture that just happened to have a 750-horsepower V12 in the back, to stunned crowds at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. During that release, it was revealed that the 220-mile-per-hour two-seater would be limited to a mere three units, all of which were already spoken for.

We feel like those three very wealthy individuals may have endured a spot of buyer's remorse, though, after Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann recently confirmed that a Veneno Roadster was in the works. That's understood to be this very car, a $4.5 million, topless version of the Veneno. Vital stats for the roadster include a 0-62-mph sprint of just 2.9 seconds and a top speed that can match its closed-roof counterpart.

Where the Veneno Roadster departs from the coupe, aside from its much higher price ($600,000 for a removable roof panel!), is in its availability. There's an infinitesimally small chance that you'll ever encounter one of the three Veneno Coupes, which is why we encourage you to check out our exclusive gallery - it's almost as good as being there. There's a substantially better chance – albeit still very small – that you'll run into a Roadster. Lamborghini is understood to be planning a total run of nine units, compared to the three hardtops. Even so, these knife-edged hypercars figure to be as rare as hen's teeth.

If we're starting to see such official-looking leaked images, it seems likely that a formal debut is around the corner. We'll follow this one as more information becomes available.

      I bet they'll come up with some Veneno J two month later. No windshield. Everything else will be exactly the same as Veneno roadster. Price will be $6 million each.

      This car is a massive investment rich people dont really care about the price in 10 years this car might be worth 2-3 times more. They will not drive it and it will sit in factory plastic under a cover in a garage.

      I hope it is because it looks so crazy, ridiculously futuristic that I totally dig it. Lambos have almost always looked like they came 30 years from the future, so this would be an awesome addition to their lineup.

        I mean, I get your point (sort of), but what the **** would you do with 34 of them?

        You would be a great humanitarian if you did that and gave them to responsible soccer moms willing to give up their SUV's for one.

      while obviously if someone gave me one of these i'd gladly drive it into the ground and have a great time doing it, i would honestly be SO EMBARRASSED to buy and own this thing.. i don't care how much money i had. laferrari, p1, huayra... those are legitimate hypercars i'd be proud to own and drive. this.... an aventador with the tackiest body kit i've ever seen... straight up EMBARRASSING. what the bleep is going on at lambo?? pagani is becoming the true alternative to ferrari.

      I am sure it is fairly aerodynamic, but wow is it ugly.

      Futuristic spacecraft styling, linear design, raptor-like persona...Yes, this is a Lamorghini...

      WTF cares? The guys who can afford these aren't generally competent to drive them anywhere near their capabilities and I could care less about collector/trailer queens.

        Even if you had the money and wanted one, it would be too late by now.
