History and production

change

The Veneno was revealed at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. It was built to celebrate Lamborghini’s 50th anniversary.[3]

Lamborghini built just five Venenos. One was used for factory testing, and another one was kept by Lamborghini. This meant that only three Venenos were sold, which made each one very expensive.[4] Nine Veneno Roadsters were also built.

Engine and transmission

change

The Veneno’s engine is a more powerful version of the Aventador‘s V12. In the Veneno, the engine makes 750 PS (552 kW; 740 hp) and 690 N⋅m (509 lb⋅ft) of torque.[3][5][6] The Veneno’s seven-speed automated-manual transmission also comes from the Aventador.[4]

Performance

change

The Lamborghini Veneno has a top speed of 221 mph (355 km/h).[7] It can also accelerate from 0–97 km/h (0–60 mph) in 2.7 seconds. The Veneno can also slow down from 97–0 km/h (60–0 mph) in 30 m (98.0 ft).[8]

Veneno Roadster

change

Lamborghini also made a convertible version of the Veneno. This car was known as the Veneno Roadster.[9] The Veneno Roadster was first shown at the 2014 Las Vegas Consumer Electronics Show.[10]

The performance of the Veneno Roadster was the same as that of the standard Veneno. The roadster went on sale for €3,300,000. Nine Veneno Roadsters were built.[11]
