Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SuperVeloce

Just when you thought the Murcielago couldn't get any more astonishing, Lamborghini unveil this monster at the Geneva Motor Show. Swathed in Reventon-esque juts, jags and hexagons, there's extensive use of carbonfibre in the name of weight-saving, an impressive 670bhp (as the name suggests) and a big-ass rear wing. 0-60? That'll take 3.2 seconds. Top speed? 212mph. Price? $300k+. And they're only making 350 of them.

The official Lambo blurb reads thus:
From the rumble of a stormy night through the trumpeting of mighty elephants to the roar of a raging lion, the SuperVeloce performs the grand opera for 12 cylinders, 48 valves and 8,000 revs.

Cheesy sentiment, but there's nothing un-serious about the SuperVeloce, particularly in this colour scheme which makes look like a huge fucking wasp. It's a glorious revival of the SV badge and it's more than a little scary.
