The Lamborghini Veneno hit the scene to a relatively lukewarm reception at best, but the lack of media and enthusiast frenzy sure didn’t stop it from planning a roadster version. The new Veneno Roadster was unveiled this past weekend, and there are few differences between it and the coupe model.
Under the Veneno’s hood, Lamborghini installed the same 6.5 liter, V-12 engine found in the Aventador, but with the output increased to 750 horsepower. Combined with a total weight of just 3,278 pounds, this results in a power-to-weight ratio of just 4.38 pounds/horsepower. This fantastic power-to-weight ratio allows the new Veneno Roadster to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds and up to a top speed of 221 mph.
The engine is mated to an ISR transmission with five modes, and it will sends power to all four wheels via a permanent all-wheel-drive system. The model is also equipped with a racing chassis with push-rod suspension and horizontal spring and damper units.
The typical roadster has a top that the driver can raise and lower at his demand, but the Veneno is no typical car. Instead, Lamborghini opted to hack the top off altogether. In terms of overall design, the Veneno Roadster looks nearly identical to its coupe brother, so it retains that crazy exterior look, with exception to it lack of a roof. Unlike the coupe versio, which was limited to just three units, Lamborghini will limit the new Veneno Roadster to nine units. Each will carry a price tag of $4.5 million.
The $4.5 million Veneno recently made its public debut in Abu Dhabi. The venue for the unveiling was something out of a Hollywood movie scene.
That would be, an aircraft carrier. "We are honoured that Lamborghini was chosen to represent the Italian car industry in the UAE, as a perfect example of iconic Italian super sports cars, and that we have the opportunity to show the Veneno roadster for the first time in Abu Dhabi," said Lamborghini boss Stephan Winkelmann during the press conference.
Lamborghini Veneno Roadster Up front, the Veneno Roadster features a large aerodynamic wing with huge channels and Y-shaped angular headlamps, and Lamborghini placed large fenders — inspired by the racing world — plus four sizable exhaust pipes divided by a splitter on the backside. Keeping the monstrous engine behind the seats cool are large vents, while an adjustable rear wing adds much needed downforce.
All the exterior parts are made from carbon fiber. The Roadster version comes with an exclusive exterior color — "Rosso Veneno" — but customers can opt for a number of colors. This exclusive color is combined with alloy wheels. What is really interesting about the new Veneno Roadster is that it has no roof, just a strong rollover bar for optimum safety. Let’s hope that those lucky nine owners don’t get caught in the rain.
