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.

Lamborghini Veneno Roadster’s entire design was laid out for perfect downforce and airflow. Its front end works like a huge aerodynamic wing. Meanwhile, the rear fenders are visually separated from the body of the car, optimizing the aerodynamic flow. On the other hand, the car’s smooth underbody transitions seamlessly into a substantial diffuser that frames the four exhaust pipes, which are divided by a splitter. Moreover, big openings ventilate the engine bay as well as facilitate airflow directly to the rear wing. The adjustable rear wing’s design is the product of extensive aerodynamic simulation and motorsport experience to ensure optimum airflow.

Furthermore, the exclusive alloy wheels’ design is determined by aerodynamic functionality, with the wheel rim’s carbon-fiber ring working like a turbine in order to deliver extra cooling air to the brake discs, which are made of carbon-ceramic. Additionally, the intense "Rosso Veneno" paint color was exclusively developed for the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster, although you can personalize your own vehicle to suit your taste and preferences.

The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster is proof of Automobili Lamborghini's one-of-a-kind competence in carbon fiber-based lightweight design. Forming the basis of the Veneno Roadster is a carbon-fiber reinforced polymer monocoque. The vehicle’s exterior parts are all made from CFRP.

It is also worth noting that the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster meets all global safety and registration requirements. It also incorporates a full range of safety systems, including airbags and an adapted ESP handling system.
