The Lamborghini Veneno hypercar is perhaps the most intense design ever pulled off by Lamborghini, the special anniversary model of the 50th anniversary, which will go on sale in an exclusive 3 copies, each with a different color (white, green and red ). Sadly, all the Lamborghini Veneno models, which have a price of EUR 3.6 million (£3.1 mil / $4.7 mil) are already Sold Out.
Lamborghini Veneno (the name mean “poison” in Spanish), can be driven legally on the road and represents the special model built by Lamborghini to celebrate its 50th birthday. The name, however, comes from a legendary bull back in 1914, which killed the famous matador José Sánchez Rodríguez.

Today we could have a look at the new Lamborghini Veneno, officially unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show 2013.
Stylistically, it doesn’t look in any way to the Aventador, although it has been built over the same carbon monocoque chassis. Veneno features a completely new design, with only one goal: to produce as much vertical downforce as possible. The optical blocks are similar in concept to those of Audi R18 e-tron, it has racing rims, air intake in the roof, a huge front splitter, a centrally located air diffuser fin, and a large adjustable carbon rear spoiler with LED lights. The bodywork and the chassis is made of CFRP, the same material that the Sesto Elemento concept was constructed.
Mechanically, the limited edition Lamborghini Veneno has the same 6.5-liter V12 engine as the Aventador, but in the case of Veneno it delivers 750 horsepower. It is combined with a 7-speed ISR automatic transmission that sends traffic to all wheels.
The top speed is 355 km/h (220 mph), making it the fastest car that ever made by the Italian company. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) is achieved in 2.8 seconds. It weighs just 1450 kilograms (3196 pounds), 125 kg (275.5 lbs) less than the Aventador, having a ratio of 1.93 kg/hp.
Inside we find Forged Composite carbon racing seats with little sponges, a new dashboard, CarbonSkin carbon ornaments and Alcantara inserts. The Lamborghini Veneno displayed at Geneva Motor Show will remain the property of Lamborghini and is painted in gray, with red accents on the side, and the Italian flag colors on the doors.
In the year of its 50th anniversary Automobili Lamborghini is presenting an extremely exclusive model at the Geneva Motor Show 2013. Only three unique units of the Lamborghini Veneno will be built and sold. Its design is consistently focused on optimum aerodynamics and cornering stability, giving the Veneno the real dynamic experience of a racing prototype, yet it is fully homologated for the road.”
Veneno is the name of one of the strongest and most aggressive fighting bulls ever. He is also famous for being one of the fastest bulls in the history of bullfighting. His name became popular in 1914, when he fatally wounded the famous torero José Sánchez Rodríguez during the bullfight in the arena Sanlúcar de Barrameda’s, Andalusia, Spain.
The Lamborghini Veneno celebrates its first public appearance at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. The vehicle on show is the number 0, the Lamborghini test vehicle. Its future has not been determined yet, but it will allow Lamborghini to continue its activity of testing and innovation, both on the road and on the race track. The trilogy made of three unique vehicles will be produced in the course of the year 2013 and handed over to their future owners.
