Lamborghini Veneno

Lamborghini has revealed the 740bhp Veneno supercar at the Geneva show, marking its 50th anniversary

Lamborghini is celebrating its 50th anniversary with the roadgoing, race-inspired Veneno, which has made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show.

The car is based on the Aventador, and features a 6.5-litre V12, with four-wheel drive and the same seven-speed auto box. Power is up from 690bhp in the Aventador to 740bhp, and the top speed improves from 217mph to 220mph.

The Veneno uses a carbon fibre tub that’s much the same as the one in the Aventador, but now every single body panel is also made of carbon fibre-reinforced plastic. On the Aventador, they’re carbon fibre or aluminium.

The body is designed to mimic a race car’s aerodynamics, and at first glance the Veneno looks like an Audi Le Mans entry. The lights sit on pontoons, while the rear converges in to a large adjustable aerodynamic wing and central fin.

Only three examples of the Veneno will be built, with each costing £2.6million plus tax. Each is metallic grey and is individually painted with red, white or green accents. Only the prototype seen at Geneva wears all three colours to make the Italian flag.
