Lamborghini Veneno Roadster - a collector's Masterpiece of
Engineering and Design

As a further highlight of its 50th
anniversary year, Automobili Lamborghini is presenting one of the most
exceptional super sports cars of all time. The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster is
an open racing prototype with an extreme design and breathtaking
performance. And it is one of the world's most exclusive automobiles -- not
more than nine units will be built during the course of 2014 and sold at a price
of 3.3 million Euros (excl. tax).
The Veneno Roadster is extreme and guarantees an intense driving experience
-- because open means truly open. There is no roof, just a strong rollover bar
for optimum safety. The design is focused on optimum aerodynamics and
stability through fast corners -- with handling akin to that of a racing prototype.
Yet it is fully road legal.
With a maximum output of 552 kW / 750 hp, the Veneno Roadster accelerates
from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds and top speed stands at 355 km/h. The
Lamborghini Veneno Roadster is driven by a twelve-cylinder engine with a
displacement of 6.5 liters and is equipped with the extremely fast-shifting ISR
transmission with five modes, permanent all-wheel drive and a racing chassis
with pushrod suspension and horizontal spring/damper units.
The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster brings the aerodynamic efficiency of a
racing prototype to the road. Every detail of its form pursues a clear function --
exceptional dynamics, optimum downforce with minimal drag and perfect
cooling of the high-performance engine. Therfore the Veneno Roadster is
unmistakably a Lamborghini; it sticks firmly to the consistent design
philosophy of all the super sports cars from Sant'Agata Bolognese. That
includes the extreme proportions, as well as the powerfully arrow-shaped front
end and the interplay between razor-sharp lines and precise surfaces.
The entire design of the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster has been laid out for
perfect airflow and downforce. The front end works as a large aerodynamic
wing. The visual division of the rear fenders from the car body is a reference
to the world of racing cars and optimizes the aerodynamic flow. The smooth
underbody transitions into a substantial diffuser framing the four sizable
exhaust pipes divided by a splitter. Large openings serve to ventilate the
engine bay and direct airflow to the rear wing. The design of the adjustable
rear wing is the product of motorsport experience and extensive aerodynamic
simulation to ensure optimum airflow in the interaction of the rear wing with
the rear diffuser.
The design of the exclusive alloy wheels is also determined by aerodynamic
functionality -- a carbon-fiber ring around the wheel rim works like a turbine to
deliver additional cooling air to the carbon-ceramic brake discs. The intense
paint color "Rosso Veneno" was developed exclusively for the Veneno
Roadster, although each single customer will be able to individualize his own
vehicle to suit his personal preferences.
The Veneno Roadster is further proof of Automobili Lamborghini's unique
competence in CFRP-based lightweight design. A monocoque made from
carbon-fiber reinforced polymer forms the basis of the Roadster. All exterior
parts are made from CFRP. The Veneno Roadster meets all safety and
registration requirements worldwide, and naturally also incorporates a full
complement of safety systems from airbags through to the adapted ESP
Carbon fiber dominates also the interior of the Veneno Roadster. The carbon
fiber monocoque is visible inside the car around the central tunnel and the
sills. The two lightweight bucket seats are made from Lamborghini's patented
Forged Composite. The woven carbon-fiber CarbonSkin is used to clad the
entire cockpit, part of the seats and the headliner. Like a hi-tech fabric, this
extremely fine-looking carbon-fiber matting fits perfectly to any form and
reduces the weight of the vehicle.
The systematic, carbon-fiber, lightweight design of the Veneno Roadster is not
only visible, it is also evident on the scales: with a dry weight of just
1,490 kilograms (3,278 pounds), the Veneno Roadster benefits from a powerto-
weight ratio of just 1.99 kg/hp (4.38 lbs/hp) which guarantees a
performance that is nothing short of mind-blowing. Even the stunning
acceleration figure of 2.9 seconds cannot adequately describe it. Despite an
aerodynamic setup configured for extreme downforce, the Veneno Roadster
possesses exceptionally low wind resistance which allows it to reach a top
speed of 355 km/h (221 mph).
