The release of the Italian car has caused a storm of emotions among auto experts and fans of the brand. A lot of things got mixed up – there was a stage of admiration, rejection, delight and outright hostility. It will not be superfluous to notice that such a curiosity, it is quite an expensive event.
The new Italian vehicle, as he thinks it should look impressive and in most cases will please any motorists. The name, as well as other cars from the company Lamborghini, the model received in honor of an aggressive bull named Veno, who killed toreador José Sanchez Rodriguez in the Spanish bullfighting in 1914. The whole model range is Lamborghini.
For the basis of Lamborghini Veneno, the price of which really exceeds all possible and impossible bars, was taken as a monocoque Aventador LP700-4. However, all body panels here were developed from scratch. If to compare the Italian novelty with the Aventador, Lamborghini Veno has turned out definitely better.
The competitors of Veneno managed to bounce off the competitors thanks to the front carbon splitter of massive sizes, gentleman’s set of air intakes all over the body, the rear wing and the diffuser crushing all frames. Compared to its donor, the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster is 125 kg lighter (1450 kg). The car is painted grey with three stripes symbolizing the Italian flag. Veno’s rear and front lights have an attractive Y-shape.
Lamborghini Veno Rodster was originally designed with optimal aerodynamics and stability in mind during high-speed corners. The bodywork component is made of 100% carbon fibre, and the number of air inlets is a little fluttering. With its futuristic design, the car occupies a certain position in the ranks of the cars of the future. Any detail of the supercar has been thought out to the smallest detail.
The engineering staff tried their best and did everything to improve the downforce and increase cooling, as well as reduce air resistance. The “poisonous” appearance of the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster is distinguished by the presence of an aerodynamic wing, which is placed in the nose area. Its ducts concentrate the air flows above and around the windscreen.
Any light optics, if you pay attention to the Lamborghini Veneno photo, is almost imperceptible. The front wings have specialized channels that create excellent aerodynamics. Wings that go beyond the body limits can independently redirect some of the air directly to radiators and braking systems. The bottom of the car has retained its excellent smoothness, which has seriously reduced the car’s turbulence.
Each part, regardless of material and shape, has its purpose and influence on the operation of the machine.
Proceeding from the form of “rollers”, you understand that experts have designed them in such a way as to equip the brakes properly for cooling the amount of air. Auxiliary cooling is not a problem for Lamborghini. The outer panels, together with the monocoque, were made of carbon fiber, and the salon received a large amount of carbon fiber. The roof of the model was before the Roadster convertible was born.
The last one didn’t get the body roof that closes the salon from above. The hood of the sharpened front part smoothly passes into the windshield. The appearance of the hypercar attracts and repels simultaneously, but it is difficult to remain indifferent. With the help of sharp, sharpened sides of the body, it turned out to be a huge aggression and expressiveness.
Thanks to the installation of lightweight material in the bodywork, the vehicle has increased downforce, and as a result, improved speed. Chic 20-inch rims were put on Pirelli’s tires – by the way, they are 21-inch in the back.
The stern has a huge wing with a central keel and a massive diffuser. Rear lights also received a sophisticated shape and angular bend. In the place where the simple cars have a towbar, the Italian has a pair of exhaust pipes, which are located on top of each other.
The car is specially belittled to preserve the stability of a racing car during sharp turns. The car is very similar to a military multifunctional fighter of the last family. If you see such a car on the road, you instantly want to give way to it.
As the clamping force has increased, the coherence has essentially grown and the data of resistance to a counter airflow have decreased. In reality, Lamborghini Veneno was able to open a new page in the production and design of modern sports cars.
Despite the fact that the exterior of the car Lamborghini Veneno resembles a rocket for intergalactic flights, everything inside turned out to be quite civil, if not boring. The interior of “Italian” in many respects repeats everything that we saw inside Aventador. Except that armchairs became sporty, there was a new steering wheel and a dashboard. From carbon plastic the landing surface of seats and a skeleton is made.
Inside the car looks a bit like a place for a fighter pilot. There are no more than two seats here. Since the conversation went beyond the seats, they received excellent side support and alcantara panelling with red stitching. Carbonskin fabric is the name of the interior decoration.
In place of the four-point straps to increase safety and keep the wearer in place. The seats are equipped with a large number of levels of adjustment for the driver and passenger. Behind the front seats there is only a luggage rack. Inside, everything is covered with leather and alcantara, and in addition, there are carbon inserts.
It’s unusual that the three-spoke steering wheel has also received three types of finishing materials. It turned out to be small, but comfortable and reminds of an air wheel. The “board” of devices has a display that resembles a fighter plane screen in its style. The display shows all the necessary information like speed mode, tachometer data, all-around view and so on.
The central console has chrome buttons for window lifts, security services, etc. Underneath them, Italian specialists have placed the climate control unit, which includes the keys and the temperature control selector. After that, you can see the keys to select the modes of movement and the start button of the powerful power unit, which is hidden under the cover.
The latter, again, hints at another resemblance to the fighter jet, which also has similar elements. The way of opening doors, which open like sharp scissors, cannot but delight. It is clear that each of us, most likely, is one of the many people who will never see this real work of art on the road alive, so we can only look at the appearance and salon with the help of photos and videos.
The 1.5-tonne vehicle is powered by a 6.5-litre mega-engine, which has been boosted to 750 horsepower. The Autador had an engine power of 700 “horses”. The engine volume was 6498 cm3. The engine is an atmospheric, V-shaped, 12-cylinder engine. Peak power is achieved at 8,400 rpm, and the maximum torque at 5,500 rpm is 689 Nm.
Valve drive: electronically controlled variable valve timing system. Emission control system: catalytic converters with lambda sensors. Engine control system: Lamborghini Iniezione Elettronica with ion current analysis. During a quiet ride, the motor consumes about 25 litres for every 100 kilometres. If you go to the track, you need about 10 liters.
As for the transmission, nothing unusual happened – we are dealing with a seven-band “robot” IRS and one electro-hydraulic clutch. There is also a mechanical box, which includes 7 speeds. The Italian received a four-wheel drive system. The box allows you to control it with the help of steering wheel petals.
Considering the all-wheel drive system, the engineers have significantly improved and strengthened the independent spring suspension compared to the Aventador. Thanks to this, the supercar has additional stability and a degree of pressure with the road surface. The suspension includes passive single-pipe front and rear suspension with horizontal shock absorbers and springs.
The car is driven very easily even at high speed. This has been achieved by working on the steering with hydraulic power steering. The steering system is Servotronic.
The designers have provided for the brake system Lamborghini Veneno carbon-ceramic elements, which increases reliability at such speeds. In addition, in order to provide additional cooling for the brakes, special carbon fiberglass rings were supplied around the “rinks” to equip them with additional blowing.
The vehicle meets all safety standards and registration requirements throughout. As with any expensive car, the model has a complete set of airbag safety systems from airbags to the adapted ESP handling system. In addition to the front airbags for driver and passenger, there are side airbags and knee protection pads.
In place of the four-point seatbelts that hold the seatbelts securely in place. Passive safety includes front and rear buckle areas and a side protection system. Active safety includes directional stability control (integrated ABS and TSC systems).
To exceed the 100km/hour bar, the car takes 2.8 seconds, while the maximum speed of Veno Roadster reaches 355km/hour.
Complections and prices
The cost of the unit, which we have just talked about, is 3 million euros or 3 800 000 U.S. dollars. However, do not rush to sell kidneys or pledge real estate – all three models of Lamborghini Veneno have long been sold. Who is the owner and what he is doing with his “toy” at the moment, no one knows.
Speaking for the cost of the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster, it costs more than a simple version of 300,000 euros. In total, the manufacturer has created only 9 Roadster models, despite the high cost. Based on the latest news, it will not be possible to buy it, as all these models have already been sold out.

We sum up
The car turned out to be really excellent and unique in every sense of the word. Italians obviously did not sit idly by and they have something to brag about. Aggressive appearance, stylish design, streamlined and lightweight body – all this is very hard to describe, looking at the car, as the emotions are beyond the limits. All the details and all the elements are not just installed in their places, and perform a certain role assigned to them.
The aerodynamics of the machine is just as good as the downforce. The two-seater “jet on wheels” feels great during cornering even at high speed. Even the wheel rims have been designed so that they can direct the airflow to the brakes and brake discs while driving. This will avoid unnecessary overheating, although the brakes are excellent (carbon ceramics).
Once in the salon, it seems that you are at the helm of the fighter jet, which is ready to lightning speed you away with a sharp pressure on the gas pedal. The power pack has no record power, but it doesn’t need it, because together with the excellent gearbox, it easily accelerates the lightweight machine.
Everything in the cabin looks very expensive and of high quality. The seats are of a sports type with a strong lateral support. The steering wheel is very comfortable, and all the buttons are again reminiscent of a fighter plane. What’s more, the engine start button hidden under the cover. Still, Italians are able to make thought-out cars and do not argue with it.
The owner won’t have to worry about safety, because everything’s fine here, too. The experts have not forgotten to equip the model with various electronic driver assistance systems. There is no point in talking about the absence of a normal luggage compartment, as it is simply not necessary here.
The tasks of this car are quite different. If you need a practical car, you can also pay attention to the Italian model Fiat Doblo. And this car is a vehicle for the soul, passing by which, others will obviously look at, and envy you.
