In the world of supercars, the attachment of a car to the owner is enough to create an exciting buzz that will perch the particular car at a very high bidding level. To get the sense of this, the following story is a good highlight.
A Lamborghini Veneno made headlines recently when it fetched $8.27 at an auction in Switzerland.
The 2014 Veneno was part of a fleet of cars seized in 2016 from Equatorial Guinea Vice President Teodoro Nguema Obiang by Swiss officials.
Whereas all the stories surrounding this car and even the owner sound very fascinating, you can as well argue that the Lamborghini Veneno isn’t your ordinary car. It is one of the most radical hypercars of our times and bound to turn heads anytime, anywhere.
For this particular breed, only nine of these hardtops were produced and the price tag back then was $4.5 million. You would then argue that the one purchased by Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue, took its time to increase in value and hit the top of the ceiling at the auction.
The Veneno is a reputable car in all aspects. Riding on a 6.5-liter V12, it generates 739 bhp with very little effort. It is also able to ride all the way to 220 mph.
It uses all its four wheels and is fitted with an inboard pushrod suspension and carbon monocoque chassis. You need little interrogation to see why this car for an African kingpin fetched such a pricey sum.
When this history goes down a couple of years again, you can be certain this car will still get a better offer.
