In the last few weeks, Crave has salivated unashamedly over craveworthy goods, starting with fabulous phones and tablets made for Midas and followed by overwrought wristwatches and opulent home theater gear to die for. This week, we're looking at ridiculously fast and expensive cars that make our knees weak.
How do you celebrate 50 years as a supercar maker? By unleashing a beast like this. Only three Lamborghini Venenos are being made, and all were snapped up by die-hard fans before it even debuted.
With a $3.9 million price tag, this street-legal racer -- named after a legendary fighting bull -- can do 0 to 60 mph in less than 3 seconds. Unveiled at the 2013 Geneva auto show for the firm's 50th anniversary, the Veneno is based on the Aventador and its 6.5-liter V-12 engine, upgraded to 739 horsepower, with a top speed of 220 mph. Here, Lamborghini CEO and Chairman Stephan Winkelmann shows it off.
