Lamborghini Veneno Officially Powers into Geneva [Video]
Looking like an Audi R18 quattro prototype, the Veneno is actually based on the Aventador, though it has much enhanced aerodynamics in order to increase downforce. Key design elements include huge air intakes, a redesigned engine cover, Y-shaped LED headlights, a ground effects diffuser and an imposing array of wings and fins.
Power for the Veneno is provided by the 6.5-liter V12 used by the Aventador. However, the engine has been tuned to produce more power, 750 PS (552 kW) of it by Italian standards. This race bread supercar looks more at home on the track than anywhere else, and with a total weight of just 1,450 kilograms, that is where it will dominate.
Amazingly, this amazing supercar came seemingly out of nowhere. Lamborghini did tell us they were going to make something special for their 50th anniversary, but we didn't quite expect this. The Veneno is a hardcore machine that doesn't look road-legal, yet three of them will be built and given to the customers who have already payed €3 million for them. That's three times as much as the projected price of the Ferrari F150 or the McLaren P1.
