Veneno made it’s debut at the 2013 Geneva motor show, the hyper car were sold to private hands even before they made the debut, the car received a very lukewarm media reception because of the limited number of units made by the Italian car company.
Based on the design of its elder brother Aventador, it marked the 50th anniversary for the company. There are just 4 Venenos in the world, 3 under private ownership and one by Lamborghini themselves. The car was priced 4million U.S dollars, now just a year later the company has decided to release Veneno’s evil twin, the Veneno Roadster the only difference that the car lacks the roof which the Veneno has and can be kept on or off at the owner’s choice. There will be only nine of these engineering marvels to be produced.
The design of the car represents the absolute, zero tolerance cutting edge technology that has been put into it and the people at the design studio have made this baby a complete badass.
Talking about the heart of the car, the engine delivers a total of 750 horsepower and sprints the Veneno from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds and up to a top speed of 221 mph. Lamborghini installed a substantial diffuser hiding the four sizable exhaust pipes divided by a splitter. There are also large openings that provide better ventilation to the engine bay and, of course, an adjustable rear wing inspired by the company’s experience in motorsport, the engine cover features six wedge-shaped openings that help cooling the V-12 beast.
With this the company has again proved its dominance in the v12 engine category with intense competition from its Italian counterparts the Ferrari’s with their upcoming La Ferrari and the existing f12 Berlinetta.
