To celebrate its 50th anniversary, has built the Lamborghini Veneno, which Lamborghini describes as “a racing prototype and road-going super sports car.” Fully in keeping with the tradition of the brand, the name of the Veneno originates from a legendary fighting bull. Veneno is the name of one of the strongest and most aggressive fighting bulls ever.
The Lamborghini Veneno is powered by a 6.5L 12-cylinder that is mated to a 7-speed ISR transmission with 5 driving modes and permanent all-wheel drive. With a maximum output of 750 hp, the Veneno accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in just 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 220 mph. To keep the weight down, Lamborghini has used lightweight carbon fiber for the chassis and body panels. The inside, too, features innovative, Lamborghini-patented materials such as Forged Composite and CarbonSkin.
Lamborghini only plans to produce three units and of course all three have been sold for three million Euros ($3.9 million). The Veneno is painted in an all-new, grey metallic-look color with individual parts gleaming in the black of the visible carbon-fiber structure. The only car to display all three colors of the Italian flag as an accent is the car shown at Geneva, the unit which will remain property of Lamborghini. The three cars sold to customers each feature a single color of the Italian national flag, together a triology in green, white and red accents and thus representing each a unique piece.
