For those who don’t know, Lamborghini is celebrating its 50th anniversary and in order to do this, it will introduce at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show the Veneno supercar concept. What we know until now, is that the Veneno Concept is powered by the same 6.5-liter V12 engine found on the Aventador and capable to deliver 750 hp.
This translates into a top speed of 354 km/h. Priced at $4.6 million, the new Lamborghini Veneno is built using the same technology found on the Sesto Elemento Concept. Regarding the design, the Veneno is quite unusual for a Lamborghini and features plenty of sharp edges.
The design is completed by the impressive rear wing and by the sporty air diffuser. The interior was also revealed, thanks to AutoForum, for the first time and honestly to tell you this looks really nice. More details to be revealed when the car will make its official debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.
As designed, the Lamborghini Veneno concept is as aerodynamically efficient as a racing prototype. Its form clearly follows function. It was designed to achieve outstanding dynamics, minimal drag and optimum downforce as well as perfect cooling of its powerful engine.
Despite being a concept, the Veneno is a true Lamborghini to form. Even at a glance, it is easy to tell that the Veneno is a Lamborghini – it features a dynamically arrow-shaped front end and extreme proportions, and boasts of a sporty interplay between razor-sharp lines and precise surfaces. Lamborghini designed the front end of the Veneno to deliver the perfect airflow and downforce, serving as a massive aerodynamic wing. It features large channels that direct air to the outlets in the front bonnet, in front of the windshield, and to the front wheels. The Veneno also feature Lamborghini’s scissor doors and signature Y-shaped angular headlamps reaching into its fenders.
Interestingly, the division of the fenders on the Veneno’s body was inspired by sport prototypes and serves to optimize aerodynamic flow. This resulted to the integration of large sills on the side, as emphasized by dominant front and rear wheel arches. These wheel arches also ensure ideal airflow to the massive openings for intake air and engine cooling.
