Lamborghini has revealed the roadster version of the its Veneno supercar: this new exclusive open version will be built in nine units and sold at 3.3 million Euros.



The original Veneno was presented early this year at the Geneva Motor Show to celebrate the carmaker’s 50th anniversary and planned for a production of just three units.

Now Lamborghini has revealed the Veneno Roadster, which will be built in no more than nine units during he course of 2014, with an announced price of 3.3 million Euros (excl. tax).

The design retains the extreme character of the Veneno, with exaggerated proportions, a powerfully arrow-shaped front end and the bold interplay between razor-sharp lines and precise, tight surfaces, while the roof has been replaced by a strong rollover bar for safety.

The monocoque is made from carbon-fiber reinforced polymer and all exterior parts are made from CFRP. The extensive use of lightweight materials results in a dry weight of just 1,490 kilograms (3,278 pounds), and a power- to-weight ratio of just 1.99 kg/hp (4.38 lbs/hp).

The interior is also dominated by carbon fiber: the monocoque is visible around the central tunnel and the sills, and the lightweight bucket seats are made from Lamborghini’s patented Forged Composite.

The woven carbon-fiber CarbonSkin is used like a hi-tech fabric to clad the entire cockpit, part of the seats and the headliner.

Like its closed counterpart, the Veneno Roadster is powered by a 6.5 liter 12 cylinder engine with a maximum output of 552 kW / 750 hp, and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds, with a top speed of 355 km/h.

The Veneno features a fast ISR transmission with five modes, permanent all-wheel drive and a racing chassis with pushrod suspension and horizontal spring/damper units.

Below we report some additional details on the design, from the official press release.

Design

Lamborghini Veneno Roadster

The entire design of the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster has been conceived for optimal aerodynamics. 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.
