The Dubai-based 2015 Lamborghini Veneno Roadster featured on SBX Cars has become the most valuable car ever transacted via an online-only auction platform, selling for US$6,000,000 last week. The sale surpasses a 2017 Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta, which previously sold for US$5,360,000 in 2022. This marks not only a new online auction record, but also an impressive milestone for the newly-founded SBX Cars platform.

The rare Veneno Roadster, only one of nine worldwide, had previously appeared at a well-known in-person auction house in 2020, with an estimated sale price of between €4,500,000 and €5,500,000, however, failed to sell.

Finished in a matt black over an interior trimmed in lime green and black leather, the super sports car also boasts lime-green pinstriping on the exterior, adding a touch of contrast and personality to its fighter-jet-like bodywork.

In the two months since launching, SBX Cars has registered thousands of global bidders from over 40 countries, and has sold cars into the US, Mexico, Dubai, Kuwait, Germany and Hong Kong. The platform is the world's first global premium auction site, selling the the most coveted and collectible vehicles to buyers all over the world.

The New MINI Cooper 5 Door

A few months after the launch of the new MINI Cooper 3 Door, the five-door Cooper is now joining the new MINI family. The MINI Cooper 5 Door is characterised by the brand's typical driving fun, extended space, and distinctive functionality. These make the five-seater an exceptional phenomenon in its segment, together with its unique design - a combination of tradition and modern, purist styling - and innovative assistance systems.

The body dimensions are almost identical to those of its predecessor and underline the basic idea behind every MINI: To create as much space as possible on a small footprint. In the case of the MINI Cooper 5 Door, this means an interior that offers enough space for five passengers. All of which benefits the occupants in terms of comfort and space. Short overhangs, clear surfaces and expressive accents also give the new MINI Cooper 5 Door its unmistakable charisma. Inside, digital innovations and an immersive user experience take the MINI DNA to a new level.

The larger body version of the purist MINI Cooper also delivers the brand's hallmark driving fun and agile handling. There is a choice of two efficient petrol engines which, combined with the modern chassis and precise steering, deliver the hallmark MINI go-kart feeling.

The three-cylinder petrol engine of the MINI Cooper 5 Door C generates 156 hp. The MINI Cooper 5 Door S is powered by a four-cylinder petrol engine with 204 hp. Hallmark MINI steering and powerful brakes ensure a high level of driving fun, safety, and comfort. Compact dimensions, short overhangs, and a small turning circle make the MINI Cooper 5 Door a versatile model for the city.

The new MINI Cooper is characterised by "Charismatic Simplicity". The design language of the current MINI family presents the traditional values of the brand with a striking clarity. The authentic design language of the new models combines advanced technology with elementary principles of vehicle design and brand origins.
