The design of the Lamborghini Veneno focused on optimizing aerodynamics and vehicle performance for now is a prototype, but will be approved for use on the street and of course on the slopes.
The model shown at the Auto Show Geneva is the number 0 of the production of three prototypes to be manufactured during 2013 – each painted in each of the colors of the italiana- flag, and have already been sold for a price of 3000000 euros, plus tax, and will serve to determine a broader model for future production.
The soul of Poison is a 12-cylinder engine and 6.5 liter mated to an automatic transmission ISR seven changes, with five different types of management system and four-wheel drive.
With this powertrain, the Lamborghini Poison generates 750 horsepower that can accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 2.7 seconds and has a top speed for legal use on the street, of 221 miles per hour.
In addition to the impressive powertrain, Poison has a reinforced chassis, sport suspension and body made entirely of carbon fiber, as other recent models of the Italian firm, as the Aventador.
Despite being the most powerful and fastest Automobili Lamborghini ever made, the poison is extremely light with just 1,450 kilos (3.190 lbs), 125 kilos (275 lbs) less than the already lightweight Lamborghini Aventador.
True to the tradition of the Italian firm, the name Poison originates from the legendary tradition of bullfighting.
Poison was the name of one of the strongest, fast and aggressive bulls history, entered the legend of the “Fiesta Brava” to mortally wound the Spanish bullfighter José Sánchez Rodríguez during a bullfight held in Sanlúcar Plaza de Barrameda, in Andalusia, Spain.
The Lamborghini Veneno includes the most advanced aerodynamic technology applied to a production car for the street prototype.
Every detail of its forms has a clear role to optimize the dynamism, inverted grip strength, low air resistance and the cooling system required for a high performance car.
Despite all that, the image of Venom is unmistakably that of a Lamborghini, following the design philosophy supercars House Sant’Agata Bolognese.
This includes extreme proportions, a powerful shaped front date and accurate straight lines with both the sides and the front and rear surfaces.
The wheels are 20 inches in front and 21 back with central frame and a unique design that includes a ring carbon fiber that functions as a turbine to improve overall vehicle aerodynamics and helps the cooling system of brakes including carbon ceramic discs.
Venom is a proof of the advanced experience of Automobili Lamborghini in the development of body made entirely of carbon fiber, as happened with the Lamborghini Aventador, which also carries a full aluminum inner structure to improve stiffness.
Poison meets the strictest safety requirements worldwide, starting with airbags, to modern systems Electronic Stability Control.
The interior of Poison is also dominated by luxury and details made of carbon fiber, from the center console to the door panels, while the seats are made of an exclusive compound patented by Lamborghini.
The prototype shown at the Geneva Auto Show, which will remain the property of Lambroghini was painted in a metallic gray with parts that allow you to view the structure of carbon fiber.
However, the three units to be manufactured and have already been sold, will be painted in green, white and red, respectively, as a tribute to the Italian flag and part of the celebrations of the 50th anniversary of the signing.
