Feast your eyes on the Lamborghini Veneno, created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Lambo their new limited edition super car was unveiled at the Geneva Motor show.
The new car packs a 740 horsepower 6.5 liter V12 engine, a seven-speed transmission, a top speed of 220 mph, and 0-60 in under three seconds. Outside Lambo have gone all out aggressive, with more fins, flaps and wings than ever before.
The Veneno is further proof of Lamborghini’s unique competence in CFRP-based lightweight design. A monocoque made from carbon-fibre reinforced polymer forms the basis of the Veneno. It is largely similar to the Aventador monocoque – as are the aluminium sub-frames front and rear – although its form has been adapted to the new design. All exterior parts are made from CFRP.
Carbon fibre dominates the interior of the Veneno too. The carbon fibre monocoque becomes visible inside the car in the area of the central tunnel and the sills. The two lightweight bucket seats are made from Lamborghini’s patented Forged Composites. The woven carbon-fibre CarbonSkin is used to clad the entire cockpit, part of the seats and the headliner. This unique material is soaked in a very special kind of resin that stabilises the fibre structure, while allowing the material to remain supple. Like a hi-tech fabric, this extremely fine-looking carbon-fibre matting fits perfectly to any form, and it reduces weight.
The new Veneno will set you back a cool $4.6 million, but don’t reach for your cheque book just yet, they are only making 3 and sadly, they have all been sold.
