With only four examples in existence, you're not very likely to ever see a Lamborghini Veneno roaming your local highways and byways. That's what makes this clip a little out of the ordinary.

Lamborghini brought the super-rare supercar out to the Vallelunga circuit near Rome for the World Finals of its Super Trofeo series, where, incidentally, American driver Andrew Palmer beat out the competition from Europe and Asia to claim the world title. Prospective buyers for the even more expensive Veneno Roadster were taken for laps to give them a taste of what to expect, because with no roof whatsoever, the open-top supercar wouldn't be our choice for a drive in the rain.

Lambo also brought out the Sesto Elemento, the previous release from the company's new prototype development center, to play on the wet track alongside the anthracite Veneno that remains the company's property. Check out the action in the image gallery above and the video below.

      It pushes all the right buttons -- the Countach of our day.

      That's more of a Batmobile than the Batmobile itself.

      The Veneno is tackier than an Aztec. It's an embarrassment for Lambo when Ferrari and McLaren (and Pagani) are currently making such monumental hypercars. Not to mention the 918, which, amazingly, is currently making the P1 look slow. Porsche seems to be developing a decent sports car department. :)

      Form follows function, I guess. This is not an attractive vehicle.

      That car would have to hit 60mph in 1 sec,and hit 300mph to make those looks acceptable!

      I love V12s, but that new V12 really lacks the gorgeous engine note of the last one, or the Zonda 760 for that matter.

      It's not a pretty car but that thing looks INSANE!!! Lambo should put 2 turbos in this thing and get the hp over 1000hp. Ofcourse it would probably launch itself into orbit....

      I'm just coming across this (a bit late). I was one of those who thought it looked absolutely ridiculous but it's growing on me. I feel like Lamborghini made this design ahead of our current time (in the near future, I feel like it's design would be much more appreciated). From the shape of the wheel arches to the red accents on the diffuser.. they put in a lot of time and detail. I hate to say it, but I'm starting to like it!
