The road-legal Lamborghini Veneno Roadster is an open racing prototype with
an extreme design and breathtaking performance. And it is one of the world's
most exclusive automobiles - not more than nine units will be built during the
course of 2014 and sold at a price of $5.1 million with taxes included.
The 2014 Veneno Roadster is extreme and guarantees an intense driving experience - because open means truly open. There is no roof, just a strong rollover bar for optimum safety. The design is focused on optimum aerodynamics and stability through fast corners - with handling akin to that of a racing prototype.
The systematic, carbon-fiber, lightweight design of the Veneno Roadster is evident on the scales: with a dry weight of just 3,278 pounds (1,490 kilograms), the Veneno Roadster benefits from a power-to-weight ratio of just 4.38 lbs/hp (1.99 kg/hp) which guarantees a performance that is nothing short of mind-blowing. Even the stunning 0-60 acceleration figure of 2.8 seconds cannot adequately describe it. Despite an aerodynamic setup configured for extreme downforce, the Veneno Roadster possesses exceptionally low wind resistance which allows it to reach a top speed of 220 mph (355 km/h).
