The Lamborghini Veneno is a supercar. It was made by Lamborghini in 2013. Only five Venenos were built. The Veneno is based off the Lamborghini Aventador, and uses a version of its V12 engine.

History and production[change | change source]

The Veneno was revealed at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. It was built to celebrate Lamborghini’s 50th anniversary.[3]

Lamborghini built just five Venenos. One was used for for factory testing, and another one was kept by Lamborghini. This meant that only three Venenos were sold, which made each one very expensive.[4] Nine Veneno Roadsters were also built.

Engine and transmission[change | change source]

The Veneno’s engine is a more powerful version of the Aventador‘s V12. In the Veneno, the engine makes 750 PS (552 kW; 740 hp) and 690 N⋅m (509 lb⋅ft) of torque.[3][5][6] The Veneno’s seven-speed automated-manual transmission also comes from the Aventador.[4]

Performance[change | change source]

The Veneno has a top speed of 356 km/h (221 mph). It can also accelerate from 0–97 km/h (0–60 mph) in 2.9 seconds. The Veneno can also slow down from 97–0 km/h (60–0 mph) in 30 m (98.0 ft).[7]

Veneno Roadster[change | change source]

Lamborghini also made a convertible version of the Veneno. This car was known as the Veneno Roadster.[8] The Veneno Roadster was first shown at the 2014 Las Vegas Consumer Electronics Show.[9]

The performance of the Veneno Roadster was the same as that of the standard Veneno. The roadster went on sale for €3,300,000. Nine Veneno Roadsters were built.[10]
