To say it was a good day at STL Motorcars is a bit of an understatement: The Chesterfield luxury-car dealership sold a $4 million Lamborghini.
It’s called the Veneno, and only three of them will be manufactured, part of Lamborghini’s 50th anniversary celebration. The Veneno has a 750-horsepower V12 engine, a top speed of 221 miles per hour, and accelerates from 0-60 in 2.8 seconds.
The buyer was Kris Singh II, managing director of Tequesta Investments in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. He bought it before even seeing it, and it won’t be delivered until the fourth quarter of this year. But he saw it last week, at an international auto show in Geneva, Switzerland.
“Lamborghini flew us to Geneva,” said Ryan Dohogne, general sales manager at STL Motorcars. “It’s the biggest deal ever for us. The store and I have been involved in multiple Bugatti transactions with price tags north of $2 million, but the most expensive Lamborghini ever has also been the most complex.”
Singh has bought several cars through the dealership, which had revenue of $63.1 million in 2012 on sales of 343 new and used cars.
