Possibly the most in-your-face automobile ever produced, the Lamborghini Veneno stunned audiences at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show as the company unveiled the supercar to commemorate its 50th anniversary. A year later, the company revealed its roadster counterpart to equal fanfare.

Aptly pushing design to its limits, the designers at Centro Stile Lamborghini maximized the vehicle’s downforce by drastically increasing handling and stability through tight corners. This specific Lamborghini Veneno Roadster is the second of nine ever produced and is in pristine condition with only 450 kilometers clocked in on the odometer.

Toting it’s massive naturally aspirated engine, the car has been tuned to produced 750 brake horsepower, 50 more than the original Aventador LP700-4. Every minor detail was put in place to minimize drag, channeling airflow to cool its staggering 6.5-liter V-12 engine. This makes for a 0-60 MPH time in just 2.8 seconds, with a top speed of 221 MPH.

Construction-wise, the vehicle boasts carbon monocoque throughout its central tunnel and door stills. It’s been finished in a Matte Black exterior with the interior trimmed in black and lime green leather. More finishing touches include lime green pinstriping on the exterior, helping to turn the vehicle’s aesthetic into one reminiscent of a fighter jet.

You can take a look at the 2015 Lamborghini Veneno Roadster above. If you’re able to foot the bill, it’s hitting RM Sotheby’s auction block next month in Paris and is expected to fetch between €4,500,000 and €5,500,000 EUR (approximately $5,000,000 to $6,100,000 USD).
