The year-long celebration of Lamborghini’s 50th anniversary included special models like the 2014 Lamborghini Veneno. Only four would be manufactured with three for customers and one held back by Lambo. All three were sold for $4.8 million each before the vehicle’s introduction at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.
The 2014 Lamborghini Veneno was a rolling showcase of Lamborghini’s experience in the development and execution of carbon-fiber materials. The Veneno benefits from a chassis produced as a carbon fiber-reinforced polymer, also known as CFRP, monocoque, as is the outer skin of this extreme sports car.
The 2014 Lamborghini Veneno comes with exclusive alloy wheels. Up front they are 20 inches and in the back they measure 21 inches. All four are equipped with center mountings. Aerodynamic functionality is factored into their design. A carbon-fiber ring sounds the wheel and acts as a turbine to feed cool air to the carbon-ceramic brake discs.
The Lambo was designed with perfect airflow and downforce in mind. It is designed to deliver high speeds in a straight line and out of this world handling on curves. The front end was designed to be an aerodynamic wing of sorts.
The carbon fiber that is so dominant on the exterior also makes it way inside the 2014 Lamborghini Veneno. The monocoque, which is made from carbon fiber, is clearly visible in the interior along the central tunnel that bisects the cockpit. The two lightweight bucket seats are made from Lamborghini’s patented Forged Composite.
Unique to the interior is a woven carbon-fiber called CarbonSkin. The cockpit is clad in it, as well as part of the seats and the headliner. It’s a carbon-fiber matting prized for its adherence to any shape while lowering the vehicle’s curb weight.
The 2014 Lamborghini Veneno brings together the thrilling rush of a racing prototype with the civility of a luxury sedan. It’s all mixed together with a maximum output of 750 horsepower and a 0-60 time below 2.8 seconds.
Power comes from a 6.5-liter V12 mated to a quick-shifting seven-speed ISR transmission. It features five driving modes. All-wheel drive is standard along with a racing chassis.
