The Lamborghini Veneno is based on the Aventador LP700-4 and was showcased at the famous Geneva Auto Show. The car is built in just three units along with the company’s demonstrator car. The reason for this was the company was celebrating its 50th anniversary in May of that year.
What’s incredible? The three people who paid a whopping 4 million dollars for each car did so without even setting their eyes on it. That is the amount of faith they had in the designers of the Lamborghini Veneno. How I wish I had that much money because the car is an absolute beauty.
What’s In A Name?
Lamborghini stated that the reason they named this car Veneno was quite thought through. Veneno stands for an aggressive and extremely strong fighting bull and that is exactly what this car is.
For Your Eyes Only
The front and rear subframes as well as, Aventador's carbon-fiber monocoque are beautifully covered with Veneno’s fissured skin. Veneno features both bulging muscles and an LMP-esque dorsal fin in the rear. It also has the Y-shaped elements from the Aventador in the taillights and head. The interior of the car is made of carbon fiber while it is fitted with Pirelli P Zero tires. These tires are 20-inch wheels up front and 22-inch wheels in the rear.
Time For Some Power Packed Information
The car has an astounding L539 6.5-liter V-12 engine, which is upgraded to produce a horsepower of 740.

The car’s top speed is around 221 mph. In fact, the all-wheel drive system can take the Veneno to 62 mph in just 2.8 seconds.
