Lamborghini Veneno

• Based on the Aventador, the Veneno is another one of Lamborghinis creations to celebrate its 50th anniversary. The Veneno was showcased at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show and was classed as one of the most expensive production cars in the world at the time. Its name translates to ‘venom’ in Spanish, and it’s one of three cars in the series made for consumer use.

• The Lamborghini Veneno (Spanish pronunciation: [beˈneno]) is a limited production high performance sports car manufactured by Italian automobile manufacturer Lamborghini. Based on the Lamborghini Aventador, the Veneno was developed to celebrate Lamborghini's 50th anniversary.

Design

• The cars equipped with a 6.5-liter V12 engine, 740hp, and can rocket from 0 to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds, reaching a top speed of 221 mph. Its increased power can be attributed to enlarged air intakes and a custom modified exhaust system. The Veneno’s interior is based mainly on an Aventador’s interior, but also incorporates Lamborghinis ‘Carbon Skin,’ just like what was used on the Aventador J.

• The design of the Veneno is a large departure from the previous styling of Lamborghini models. The design is inspired by Sports prototypes and racing cars. The Y-shaped design elements are a carryover from the Aventador's design language while the rear wheel arches hark back to the Countach. The vented engine cover improves cooling to the engine, while the extreme aerodynamic elements present on the car signify its track-focused characteristics.

• The Veneno retains the carbon-fibre monocoque chassis with aluminium front and rear subframe from the Aventador along with the pushrod suspension system. The interior is based largely on the Aventador's interior, but now incorporates the "carbon skin" element introduced on the Aventador J. The 7-speed ISR automated manual transmission is also retained from the Aventador and includes a new "track" setting for improved performance on a race track

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 car came with an original price tag of $4 million but was later purchased for $5.3 million, making it the second most expensive Lamborghini in the world.

• 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.[13] In addition to the coupé, nine units of the roadster were produced which could be completely customized to the customers desire.
