Italian diecast company MR Collection, which specialises in creating incredibly detailed hand built cars, has released some early prototype shots of its upcoming Lamborghini Veneno in 1/18 scale - and even at this early stage, it's looking absolutely superb. When distributing the pictures, MR Collection was keen to point out that adjustments are still required but things are definitely on the right track.

Although no release date has been revealed, MR Collection is planning on creating seven colour variations of the car, including: Mettaluro, Verde Ithaca, Monocerus White, Rosso Mars, Metallic Yellow, Nero Nemesis and Arancio Argos. MR Collection models aren't cheap but they're exceptionally limited edition  - some are limited to just one example - and the company has a dedicated fanbase around the globe.

The Lamborghini Veneno is a limited production sports car, first exhibited during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. It is a show piece based on the Lamborghini Aventador and was built to celebrate Lamborghini’s 50th anniversary. The prototype, Car Zero, is finished in grey and includes an Italian flag vinyl on both sides of the car. The engine is a development of the Aventador's 6.5 L V12 and produces 750 PS (552 kW; 740 bhp).

Only three production cars will be produced (they are all already sold). There will be a green, white, and red one, each representing a colour of the Italian flag. Car Zero, which was the vehicle on display, will be retained by the factory for the museum. The three production cars will cost €3.12 million each.
