The convertible version of the Lamborghini Veneno will hit the market as the company’s CEO, Stephan Winkelmann, has recently confirmed in an interview.
The Lamborghini Veneno is the company’s newest model, up to date, and it has been officially presented to the public back in March, during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, but it seems that the carmaker has bigger plans for the supercar as it will receive a convertible version. The announcement has been made by the Lamborghini CEO, Stephan Winkelmann, in an interview with Car and Driver. The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster will come in 9 units, which significantly more than the 3 units in which the regular Veneno has been made.
The upcoming Lamborghini Veneno Roadster will hit the market with basically the same features found on the regular Veneno model, except for the roof. Power will still be provided by the same 6.5 liter V12 engine, sourced from the Aventador, which is producing a total output of 740 HP (552 kW). The unit will be mated to a seven-speed ISR robotized manual transmission. No performance details are known for the moment but with the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show coming in pretty fast, more can be announced at the event.
