SUPERCAR PERFECTION

The original Veneno coupé was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 2013 as part of Lamborghini’s anniversary celebrations. It was offered in a choice of green, white and red body finishes, the colours of the Italian flag.

The catch? There was only one of each. Car Zero was retained by the factory and the remaining three coupés found buyers instantly at around €3 million (plus tax). Now comes the Veneno Roadster, and it’s certain to be three times as popular, because Sant’Agata is producing nine examples worldwide. Fanatical perfectionists, step this way.

Lamborghini describes the Veneno Roadster as an open racing prototype with an extreme design and breathtaking performance. The name itself comes from the Spanish for ‘venom’, a remarkably accurate description of the way it delivers its performance. Weight has been pared with fanatical determination; not only is the monocoque built in carbon fibre, but the interior trim is made of a substance called CarbonSkin, with elements of the chassis left deliberately exposed within the cockpit. The Veneno’s target audience will be skilled and experienced drivers who take to the track for pleasure, not competition, but who still want the ultimate in agility, response and outright power. They’ll appreciate the downforce of the carbon fibre rear wing and will enjoy exploring the three position adjustment for different circuits. Full wing is obligatory for Monaco, naturally, even if you’re just parking by your yacht.

The Veneno Roadster’s closest relative in the Lamborghini range is the Aventador Roadster, which shares the same V12 engine architecture and seven-speed ISR transmission. Both cars distribute their eye-watering power between all four wheels. The difference is in the detail. Aventador produces 700 metric horsepower; Veneno tops it with 750HP at 8,400rpm. The carbon-fibre monocoque keeps the Aventador Roadster down to an impressively low 1625kg dry weight; the Veneno is even lighter at 1,490kg.

Weight is distributed 43 prcent front, 57 percent rear, and the net result of all these incremental gains is a power to weight ratio of 1.99kg/hp. 0-100km/h comes up in 2.9 seconds, but it’s not a vehicle for straight-line drag racing. The Veneno Roadster’s light weight pays dividends in braking, cornering and steering feedback, and the faster you go the more you sense the difference. The rationale for an open cockpit? If it’s good enough for the LMP1 Le Mans Series prototypes, it’s good enough for Lamborghini’s most extreme roadster yet.
