Autoworld Museum in Brussels, housed in the ornate Cinquantenaire complex east of the city centre, features one of nine Lamborghini Veneno Roadsters in its Italian Car Passion exhibition running until 31 January. The £2.8m, 740bhp, V12 monster was conceived to mark the firm’s 50th anniversary in 2013. Others cars on show include an Alfa Romeo Disco Volante, Ferrari 275 GTS Pininfarina and De Tomaso Mangusta Bertone. Remarkably, Autoworld is open on both Christmas Day and New Year’s Day (as is Eurotunnel). Brussels is 229 miles from London. See ItalianCarPassion.be
