1. Lamborghini Veneno
It couldn’t be more fitting that the brand borne of a jilted Ferrari owner and a lot of mechanical know-how would celebrate its 50th anniversary by trying to steal the thunder from a Ferrari a decade in the making.
Best of all, a Lamborghini spokesman confirmed that its most powerful, extreme and expensive car to date went from dream to reality in roughly four months.
To be fair, the Veneno is based on the Aventador rather than being an all-new car. Still, with a modified version of the 6.5-liter V12 pumping out 750 hp, the car lives up to its namesake bull’s ferocious history.
Priced from 3 million Euros a piece, there will only be three built and sold. Pictures can’t come close to doing the car justice and in true Lambo form it redefines being over-the-top.
In many ways it might not be as impressive an engineering feat as the McLaren or Ferrari but we already really knew what the McLaren looked like before Geneva and as amazing as the Ferrari is, it’s also exactly what we expected. The Lambo, on the other hand, is one outrageous surprise.
For that reason, the Veneno is AutoGuide.com’s choice for the best car of the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.
