Earlier this week, we showed you the first photos with the Lamborghini Veneno but today it’s time to take a look at the real deal. Built to celebrate company’s 50th anniversary, the Lamborghini Veneno is powered by a 6.5-liter V12 engine delivering 750 hp and capable to push it from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 2.8 seconds all the way to a top speed of 355 km/h or 220 mph.
Moreover, the vehicle uses the fast-shifting 7-speed ISR transmission with 5 driving modes and permanent all-wheel drive. The new Lamborghini Veneno will be built in a very limited edition of just 3 units, each priced at three million euros plus tax. The bad news is that all of them are already sold! In terms of design, the new Lamborghini Veneno features the latest technology, although it is not as attractive as the LaFerrari.
Still, the people who will own one will be very lucky. The car features all sorts of air vents and interesting design lines as well as a big rear wing, built in order to keep it on the road. With a dry weight of just 1,450 kg (3,190 pounds), the Veneno is 125 kg (275 pounds) lighter than the Lamborghini Aventador. The exterior design is completed by the grey metallic-look color with individual parts gleaming in the black of the visible carbon-fiber structure.
Imagine seeing a racing prototype weaving its magic on the road. This is possible when you have a car so aerodynamic and efficient. That is exactly what the Lamborghini Veneno is all about.
With a high performance engine that does not linger in heat and a capacity for minimum drag brought about by its optimum downforce, the Lamborghini Veneno sticks close to and consistent with the philosophy of Sant’Agata Bologneses in the design and manufacture of super sports cars. The Lamborghini Veneno is able to generate its acceleration from its airflow and downforce resulting from the front end which functions like a large aerodynamic wing. Air is led to the front hood outlets, the windshield front, and front wheels by large channels.
The Lamborghini Veneno is not one to be overlooked in the style department. It possesses lines and surfaces so sharp and well proportioned, as well as a front end that is shaped arrow-like to give it a powerfully imposing look. The angular headlamps are classic Lamborghini as they’re Y-shaped and extend to the scissor doors and fenders. Enormous sills and front and rear wheel arches dominate the Lamborghini Veneno to further enhance its aerodynamic capability.
