When your Lamborghini and it’s your 50th birthday, you celebrate in a big way. You create a vehicle like the 2014 Lamborghini Veneno Roadster. It’s a prototype costing $4.5 million – or $90,000 for each year the Italian automaker has been in business. Only 9 were to be manufactured.
This is a fair-weather friend. 2014 Lamborghini Veneno Roadster is entirely open air. It has no roof. A strong rollover bar is in place for occupant safety.
The 2014 Lamborghini Veneno Roadster was designed for perfect airflow and downforce. It goes fast in a straight line and while devouring curves like a true racing prototype. The front end has designed as a large aerodynamic wing of sorts. The rear fenders have been visually split from the rest of the body in a nod to racing cars. It’s another means of increasing aerodynamic flow.
The interior of the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster, like the coupe it is based on, relies heavily on the use of carbon fiber, which dominates throughout. You can find it around the central tunnel and the sills. The two bucket seats are lightweight and made from a forged composite that Lamborghini has patented.
The cockpit of the 2014 Lamborghini Veneno Roadster is wrapped in a carbon-fiber material called, appropriately enough, CarbonSkin. It is part of the low-weight seats and used overhead on the headliner. It is used for its ability to adhere to any form while saving weight.
Just because the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster doesn’t mean it’s any less of a high-performance supercar. This fully road legal, open top car obliterates 0-62 mph in 2.9 seconds and tops out at 220 mph. Make sure your hat has a chin strap with 750 horsepower from the 6.5-liter, V12 engine.
The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster comes standard with the ISR transmission, know for its five different modes and fast shifts. It has permanent all-wheel drive and a dry double plate clutch.
