Lamborghini Veneno Roadster

• The roadster variant of the Lamborghini Veneno was unveiled on the Italian naval aircraft carrier Cavour docked in Abu Dhabi's Mina Zayed port in 2014, followed by the 2014 Las Vegas Consumer Electronics Show. Performance of the roadster remains identical to that of the coupé with the roadster being 50 kg (110.2 lb) heavier than the coupé counterpart due to chassis reinforcing components.

Design

• The super sports car is made almost entirely from carbon fiber, weighing 3,285lbs, and is characterized by optimal aerodynamics to ensure stability on the road. Seeing as there are only nine Veneno Roadsters on the planet, $8.3 million seems like a good deal to grab one of the world’s most expensive Lamborghinis, not to mention one of the most expensive cars in the world.

• It has a a mid-mounted 6.5-liter aspirated V12 engine and 750 hp, it can reportedly reach a top speed of 221 mph, going from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds.

• The engine is a development of the Aventador's 6.5-litre V12 and generates a power output of 750 PS (552 kW; 740 hp) at 8,400 rpm and 690 N⋅m (509 lb⋅ft) of torque at 5,500 rpm. The increase in power was achieved by enlarging the air intakes and modifying the exhaust system.

Performance

• The Lamborghini Veneno has a top speed of 356 km/h (221 mph) and has a 0–97 km/h (0–60 mph) acceleration time of 2.9 seconds. The car has a braking distance of 30 m (98.0 ft) from 97–0 km/h (60–0 mph), and can produce 1.41 G while cornering.

Production

• The Veneno Roadster is the most expensive Lamborghini in the world, valued at a whopping $8.3 million. The original starting price was $4.5 million, however the most recent sale was for just under $8.3 million.

• Lamborghini built just four examples of the Veneno Coupé: one retained for the factory museum, and three cars for customers which were all painted in Grigio Metalluro with either a red, green, or white accent color. In addition to the coupé, nine units of the roadster were produced which could be completely customized to the customers desire.
