Here's more pictures of the Lamborghini Veneno coupes. Lamborghini has now announced the release of a permanently open edition of the (street-legal) racing prototype of which only nine cars will be built during the course of 2014, each carrying a pre-tax price of €3.3 million, or about $4.5 million.

Lamborghini says it developed the “Rosso Veneno” seen in the (computer rendered) photos exclusively for the Veneno Roadster, but each customer will be able to "individualize his own vehicle to suit his personal preferences".

The Roadster weighs 1,490 kilograms (3,278 pounds) with the mid-mounted 6.5-liter V12 thrusting out 740bhp (750PS) for a power-to-weight ratio of 1.99 kg/hp (4.38 lbs/hp). The standard sprint to 100km/h (62mph) is achieved in 2.9 seconds with the car topping out at 355 km/h (221 mph).
