The limited edition Lamborghini Veneno Roadster has joined her more modestly covered sibling. The Veneno left onlookers with jaws agape thanks to her extreme sharp edges, power prowess and nauseating price tag.
The Raging Bull continues to celebrate its 50th anniversary, and the Veneno drop-top is a part of that spirit.
While drop-top versions are typically more exclusive than their coupe counterparts, there will actually be 9 Lamborghini Veneno roadsters made while there are but 3 coupes. The Veneno is based on the award-winning Lamborghini Aventador. There is plenty of lightweight carbon fiber and the very same 6.5-liter V12 engine ripping out 740bhp. The engine is located behind driver and passenger, offering that acoustic rumble experience. The gearbox is a sequential manual and it is permanent all wheel drive.
The Lamborghini Veneno hits the 0-60 mile per hour marker in a cool 2.9 seconds with a top speed of approximately 220 miles per hour. The unique name, ‘Veneno’, was a well-known bull guilty of gorging a matador to death with its horns in 1914. Lamborghini’s trademarked Raging Bull pays homage to the rich history of bullfighting, with many models boasting names of various bulls or matadors.
That being said-the Lamborghini Veneno looks very much like an aggressive bull. It has a large head, snarling side air intakes and the sharp angles that could bring to mind horns. The special ‘Rosso Veneno’ color will be offered specifically for the convertible, though buyers can specify any shade under the sun. Guesses at the coveted convertible’s MSRP range between $4 and $5 million, with the coupe sitting at a pretty $3.9 million. The 12 Venenos will become collector cars and will likely not be frequently seen on the streets, though it likely won’t be long before one visits Jay Leno’s Garage.
