Lamborghini Veneno Roadster revealed

Lamborghini Veneno Roadster
Following yesterday’s leak, Lamborghini has revealed official images and details of its extreme Veneno Roadster which has been created to mark the company’s fiftieth anniversary.

The street-legal racing car is propelled by the same engine as its Coupe counterpart, namely a revised version of the Aventador’s 6.5-litre V12, featuring enlarged intake paths, optimized thermodynamics and a modified exhaust system with lower back pressure. Developing 552 kW (750 hp) which sends power to all four wheels via a seven-speed ISR transmission, 100 km/h appears in just 2.9 seconds with top speed working out at 355 km/h (221 mph).

Weight is kept to a minimum thanks to the carbon-fibre reinforced polymer monocoque mated to aluminum sub-frames, while all of the exterior parts are also made from CFRP, resulting in an impressive dry weight of just 1,490 kilograms (3,278 pounds) and a power-to-weight ratio of 1.99 kg/hp (4.38 lbs/hp).

Underpinned by a racing chassis with pushrod suspension and horizontal spring/damper units, the carbon-ceramic brake discs receive extra cooling thanks to those carbon-fibre rings running around the alloy wheels. Inside, there’s a pair of lightweight Forged Composite bucket seats, with woven carbon-fibre CarbonSkin used to clad the entire cockpit.

Just nine examples will be built at a price of €3.3 million each – before taxes. Customers won’t get the luxury of a roof panel, but Lamborghini says it will paint the car in any colour you want, including the exclusive Rosso Veneno hue pictured here.
