Lamborghini Veneno – Roadster & Coupe (9 + 5 Produced)
Currently a Coupe and a Roadster is for sale
The Lamborghini Veneno (Spanish pronunciation: [beˈneno]) is a limited production high performance sports car manufactured by Italian automobile manufacturer Lamborghini. Based on the Lamborghini Aventador, the Veneno was developed to celebrate Lamborghini’s 50th anniversary. It was introduced at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. When introduced, it had a price of $4,000,000 USD. making it one of the most expensive production cars in the world.
The engine is a development of the Aventador’s 6.5-litre V12 and generates a power output of 750 PS (552 kW; 740 hp) at 8,400 rpm and 690 N⋅m (509 lb⋅ft) of torque at 5,500 rpm. The increase in power was achieved by enlarging the air intakes and modifying the exhaust system.
The Veneno is Lamborghini’s interpretation of a racing prototype built for the road. The front of the car is designed for maximum airflow and improved downforce. The redesigned front and rear arches direct air around the car in order to reduce excessive lift and aid in generating downforce. The smooth underbody ensures that the airflow is not interrupted. The large carbon-fibre rear wing connected to the car via an LMP-style central fin is three-way adjustable. The wheels of the car (measuring 20-inch at the front and 21-inch at the rear) have a turbine-like design and direct air to cool the car’s carbon ceramic braking system. The center lock wheels allow for easy installation and removal. The car utilises Pirelli P-Zero tyres.
The Veneno retains the carbon-fibre monocoque chassis with aluminium front and rear subframe from the Aventador along with the pushrod suspension system. The interior is based largely on the Aventador’s interior, but now incorporates the “carbon skin” element introduced on the Aventador J. The 7-speed ISR automated manual transmission is also retained from the Aventador and includes a new “track” setting for improved performance on a race track.
The rear wheel arches are inspired by the Lamborghini Countach and the turbine wheels help to cool the brakes
The design of the Veneno is a large departure from the previous styling of Lamborghini models. The design is inspired by Sports prototypes and racing cars. The Y-shaped design elements are a carryover from the Aventador’s design language while the rear wheel arches hark back to the Countach. The vented engine cover improves cooling to the engine, while the extreme aerodynamic elements present on the car signify its track-focused characteristics.
The Lamborghini Veneno has a top speed of 356 km/h (221 mph) and has a 0–97 km/h (0–60 mph) acceleration time of 2.8 seconds. The car has a braking distance of 30 m (98.0 ft) from 97–0 km/h (60–0 mph), and can produce 1.41 G while cornering.
The roadster variant of the Lamborghini Veneno was unveiled on the Italian naval aircraft carrier Cavour docked in Abu Dhabi’s Mina Zayed port in 2014, followed by the 2014 Las Vegas Consumer Electronics Show. Performance of the roadster remains identical to that of the coupé with the roadster being 50 kg (110.2 lb) heavier than the coupé counterpart due to chassis reinforcing components. The roadster went on sale for €3,300,000 (excluding tax).
Lamborghini built just five examples of the Veneno Coupé: one for factory testing (dubbed car number zero), one retained for the factory, and three cars for customers, all of which were customised to customer specifications. In addition to the coupé, only nine units of the roadster were produced
The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster takes the aerodynamic efficiency of a racing prototype onto everyday roads. This super sports car is characterized by optimal aerodynamics in order to guarantee stability in fast curves and a behavior like a racing prototype. All of this on a car devised for the road. The perfect car for sports-driving lovers.
DESIGN A MASTERPIECE OF POWER AND LIGHTNESS INSPIRED BY AERONAUTICS
Here are the technical specifications of the new Veneno: with a 6.5 liter aspirated V12 engine and a top speed of 355 km/h, this Lamborghini concept car represents state-of-the-art design inspired by aeronautics, capable of giving you the indescribable feeling of flying on the road. Faithful to the Lamborghini lines, the Veneno is characterized by extreme proportions, emerging in the forceful arrow-shaped front as well as alternating razor-sharp lines and sleek, tight surfaces.

PERFORMANCE LESS WEIGHT, MORE DRIVING FUN.
The Lamborghini Veneno is consistently focused on optimum aerodynamics and cornerning stability, giving the vehicle the authentic, dynamic experience of a racing prototype, yet it is fully certified for the road.
The lightweight design of the carbon fiber frame is not only visibly evident, it also proves itself on the scales with a power-to-weight ratio of 1.93 kg/hp (4.23 CV/lbs), and thanks to its forceful twelve-cylinder, the Veneno guarantees a performance that is nothing short of mind-blowing.
DESIGN AERODYNAMICS AND HIGH-TECH INTERIOR.
Just like the front end, the rear of the Veneno has also been optimized for underbody aerodynamics and high speed cornering stability. The carbon fiber monocoque is also visible inside the car, most notably in the area of the central tunnel and the sills.
The two lightweight bucket seats are made from Lamborghini’s patented Forged Composite. The lightweight woven carbon fiber CarbonSkin is used to clad the entire cockpit, part of the seats and the headliner. These measures help reduce the weight and increase the driving fun up to unprecedent levels.
