The Italian based automaker Lamborghini has recently pulled the wraps off its latest creation, the Veneno, during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, in a world premiere.
After leaking in a brochure just a day before writing this article, the newest model to wear the “raging bull’s” logos on its body, the so-called Veneno, is being placed into the spotlights for the first time, in an official way, with the Italian based automaker pulling the wraps off its body. The model in question has been produced in order to celebrate the company’s 50th anniversary and, if you were expecting a modified version of the Aventador J, than you will be disappointed.
Initial rumors were saying that Lamborghini will present a direct rival for the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta during the Swiss automotive event, but the car manufacturer has taken everyone by surprise with its newest supercar. The Lamborghini Veneno has been inspired by models like the Reventon or the Sesto Elemento and its drastic lines, carried all over its body, tell us one thing: “Yes, I am a Lamborghini and my great grandfather was the Countach”.
The Lamborghini Veneno will be produced in 3 units and, knowing the carmaker, we can almost say that all of them have been sold out, but we won’t, considering the fact that each of them is priced at 3.1 million GBP, which is translated into a whopping 3.57 million EUR or 4.65 million USD, if you live over-seas. Power to the Lamborghini Veneno is being provide by a 6.5 liter V12 engine, which is producing a total output of 740 HP (552 kW), mated to a seven-speed ISR robotized manual transmission. Top speed in the supercar stands at 220 mph (354 km/h). More details on the Veneno remain unknown for the moment, but you can at least enjoy the photo gallery posted below.
