When Ferrari marked its 50th anniversary in 1997, the Italian carmaker produced the F50. For its own half-century milestone this year, Lamborghini has created the ultra-exclusive--built specifically for just three lucky (and filthy rich) customers--Veneno, a supercar based on the Aventador's chassis and named after a legendary fighting bull.

The Veneno is expected to be put on display at the Geneva International Motor Show this weekend.

The car supposedly also uses a tweaked version of the Aventador's 6.5-liter V12 engine. Under the Veneno's hood, this engine now pumps out 750hp, allowing the Lambo to accelerate from zero to 100kph in just 2.8sec and reach a top speed of 355kph. The powerplant is mated to what the carmaker says is an "extremely fast-shifting seven-speed ISR (independent shifting rod) transmission."

Other features of the Veneno include five driving modes; permanent all-wheel drive system; racing chassis with pushrod suspension and horizontal spring/damper units; and carbon-fiber monocoque chassis and exterior sheet metal.

The price? A staggering 3 million euros ($3.9 million or P160 million) before tax.

Here's to Lamborghini's next 50 years...
