At the Bonmont Sale, an auction by Bonhams on September 29, 2019, held in Cheserex, Switzerland some amazing cars were sold, at record-setting prices too, one of those rare cars is a 2014 Lamborghini Veneno Roadster, one of only nine ever made, this white over white one is number 7 of them, chassis number ZHWEB3ZD4FLA03007 covered only 325 km from new.
Naturally, this car looks brand new and came with all the books and tools that accompanied her from the factory, with a price of €3,300,000 before taxes, the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster was the most expensive Bull to leave the gates at Sant'Agata ... only one of the nice Roadsters was finished in this off-white body with a luxurious beige interior (another one of the Roadsters was finished in white)
When the hammer came down, the final price, including the auction premium was a massive CHF 8,280,000, which converts into €7,633,447 or US $8,296,572 ... which is a lot higher than the estimate set on this car back in June between €4,700,000 and €5,500,000 ... someone really wanted to add this very rare car to the collection.
And this Veneno Roadster wasn't the only limited edition Lamborghini that got sold during this auction .. how about one of only 15 Lamborghini Reventon Roadster, the other 'few-off' as Lamborghini calls them these days, but this time based on the Murciélago (the Veneno is based on the Aventador as you know) ... back in 2009 the Reventon Roadster was introduced as the ultimate open-top Lamborghini, released two years after the Reventon Coupe (of which 20 were made).
The Lamborghini Reventon Roadster sold at this auction was a 2010 model, sold new in Switzerland and serviced by none other than Lamborghini Porrentruy, also known as Garage Affolter, chassis ZHWBE91N9ALA03997 has covered about 2,400 km before being sold in 2019 for CHF 1,955,000 (€1,802,341 or US $1,959,153).
A third rare Lamborghini sold at this same auction was a 2011 Murciélago LP670-4 Superveloce, finished in stunning Nero Nemesis, chassis ZHWBE81HXALA03981 reached a price of CHF 345,000 (€318,060 or US $345,737), with an intended production run of 350 units, the Murciélago Superveloce was intended to be the final evolution in the Murciélago range before the Aventador took over ... but in the end, only 186 units were ever made, making this a rare car today.
A bright red, 1996 Lamborghini Diablo VT Roadster was also offered for auction at this event, chassis ZA9RE31A0XLA12064 was converted into an MY99 look-alike by replacing the original pop-up headlights with the fixed units, the previous owner even went as far as replacing the dashboard with the newer 1999 style ... this by now classic Lamborghini reached a price of CHF 218,500 (€201,438 or US $218,965) including premium.
A classic 1969 Lamborghini 400GT 2+2 concludes the Raging Bulls being sold at the Bonmont Sale auction, this one comes with a very interesting history about chassis numbers being swapped to avoid import taxes back in the Sixties, listed as nr 0415 it appears this car was, in fact, nr 0634 ... still, she saw a sales price of CHF 345,000 (€318,060 or US $345,737) ... exactly the same amount it took for the Murciélago Superveloce to sell.
Other interesting cars to sell at the Bonmont Sal were a 2015 Koenigsegg One:1 that reached €4,240,803 or US$ 4,609,561, a 2003 Ferrari Enzo for €2,862,542 or us$3,111,453, a 2015 LaFerrari Coupé for €2,014,381 or US$2,189,440, a 2015 Porsche 918 Spyder at €1,431,271 or US$1,555,682, a 2011 Aston Martin One-77 Coupé for the same amount, a 2010 Bugatti Veyron EB16.4 Coupé that reached €1,208,629 or US$1,313,567, a 2014 McLaren P1 Coupé sold for €1,166,221 or US$1,267,411, and if you think a Porsche 911 comes cheap these days, think again, a bright yellow 1993 964 Turbo S 'Leightbau' changed hands for €1,060,200 or US$1,152,211.
