This is the new Lamborghini Veneno. At 50 years of age, the Lamborghini brand looks younger than ever. How else can we explain the emergence of one of the most aggressive street models in history? Stay tuned for the 2013 Geneva Motor Show news.
When specialized media’s attention seemed attracted by the new McLaren P1 supercar that the British manufacturer will launch in Geneva to commemorate a beautiful 50 years of age, Lamborghini launches an attack just hours before the opening of the gates of the most important European auto show. Weapon used: the spectacular Lamborghini Veneno, a special model that will be produced in only three copies, all sold out to some happy-lucky clients of one of the most aggressive cars ever built. Under these conditions, the price of £3.1 million pounds per copy is only justified.

Lamborghini Veneno – Design & Engine
After having tested the market with Sesto Elemento concept, the Italians launch the new Lamborghini Veneno, while their rivals unveil the new Ferrari F150, the ultimate supercar envisioned by the Prancing Horse. Until we’ll have the official photos, Veneno becomes one of the most spectacular supercars of the world.
The aerodynamic appendix seems drawn either from purely conceptual prototypes, either Formula 1, the new Lamborghini Veneno highlights its pedigree with a more than aggressive profile, dominated by the Italian flag colors. The new supercar has a frontal zone where the angular headlights – specific to Lamborghini – receive a new dimension of shapes and a rear spoiler that massively stands out. Obviously, the bodywork is constructed solely from composite materials, carbon fiber fully replacing metal.
Lamborghini Veneno is fitted with the same 6.5 liter V12 engin from the Aventador model. The 740 horsepower engine it’s frontally disposed, and manages to accelerate the Italian model from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 2.9 seconds. The engine is matted with the 7-speed ISR automatic transmission that sends traffic to all wheels. The top speed is 220 mph (354 km/h), making it the fastest car made by the the car manufacturer from Sant’Agata Bolognese.
Lamborghini Veneno has a named inspired by another famous bull, the name meaning “poison” in Spanish. Only 3 copies will hit the market, each in a different color (white, green and red) and all three are already been sold: £3.1 million pounds (€3.6 million / $4.6 million)
