Lamborghini Veneno Roadster confirmed by CEO Stephan Winkelmann

Article by Christian A., on August 19, 2013

If the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster was just a rumor yesterday, today it became official as CEO Stephan Winkelmann confirmed the new car in an interview with Car and Driver. The Lamborghini Veneno Coupe will see a limited production of just three units, but the Italian manufacturer is planning to triple that number and build 9 Veneno Roadsters.

Each roadster will cost $3.3 million, 10 percent more than the coupe version. Just like the coupe, the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster will be powered by the same 6.5-liter V12 engine developing 750 hp. The new car is expected to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 220 mph or 350 km/h.

The engine is bolted to the fast-shifting 7-speed ISR transmission with 5 driving modes and permanent all-wheel drive. Regarding the design, we don’t expect a radical change, just a removable carbon-fiber roof, just like the one seen on the Aventador Roadster.
