The supremely exclusive Lamborghini Veneno has finally been revealed and will be on show at the Geneva Motor Show. Only three will be made. Named after a famous bull, the Veneno was designed to celebrate the Italian supercar maker’s 50th anniversary, and is priced at $3.9 million each.
Lamborghini certainly didn’t hold back with the design, with carbon fiber reinforced polymer forming the base, while the aluminum sub-frames for the front and rear is just like the Aventador on which the Veneno is based on. Large air channels direct air up and away from the car, while a ventilated engine cover with a large central “shark” fin, altogether help improve stability and downforce. The Veneno will only be offered in three colours, each representing a colour from the Italian flag. The one at the show is the Veneno 0, a prototype and the only one to have a combination of the three colours.
The engine is the same as the Aventador, which is the 6.5L V12 engine mated to 7-speed automatic transmission, but pumped up to produce an output of 750 bhp. This enables it to propel the Venono from 0-62 mph in just 2.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 220 mph.
If you have an extra $3.9 million lying around and want to get your hands on one, hold on to your money as the three cars that will be produced have apparently already been sold.
