A few days ago the first image of the new Lamborghini Veneno Roadster leaked. Now theluxury Italian sportscar brad is releasing the official information around its new model, which was created in order to celebrate the 50th anniversary year of Automobili Lamborghini.

Veneno Roadster is an open racing prototype, and being a true Lamborghini it offers extreme design and breathtaking performance. Its exclusiveness is additionally emphasized by the fact that only nine units of it will be built, each costing 3.3 million Euros.

The intensity of the driving experience in this car is guaranteed by the fact that the vehicle has no roof, but just a strong rollover bar for optimum safety. The design is focused on optimum aerodynamics and stability through fast corners. The handling resembles that one of a racing prototype, nonetheless – this Lamborghini is absolutely road legal.

To speak in numbers, the Veneno Roadster is a capable of producing a maximum output of 750 horsepower (552 kW). This means that it achieves the acceleration sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in only 2.9 seconds on its way to the top speed of 355 km/h.

These figures are possible thanks to the twelve-cylinder engine with a displacement of 6.5 liters as well as the extremely fast-shifting ISR transmission with five modes, permanent all-wheel drive and a racing chassis with pushrod suspension and horizontal spring/damper units.

Lamborghini Veneno Roadster offers exceptional dynamics, optimum downforce with minimal drag and perfect cooling of the high-performance engine. In addition, the entire design of the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster has been laid out for perfect airflow and downforce.

For instance, the front end works as a large aerodynamic wing. A reference to the world of racing cars is the visual division of the rear fenders from the car body. This also optimizes the aerodynamic flow.

Moreover, the underbody transitions into a substantial diffuser. The latter frames the four sizable exhaust pipes divided by a splitter. Large openings serve to ventilate the engine bay and direct airflow to the rear wing, which is adjustable and is created in the manner to ensure optimum airflow in its interaction with the rear diffuser.

The new Lamborghini's Roadster runs on alloy wheels, which have carbon-fiber ring around the wheel rim. This works like a turbine and delivers more cooling air to the carbon-ceramic brake discs. The exterior color is decided in the paint named "Rosso Veneno", which was especially developed exclusively for the Roadster.

Lamborghini Veneno Roadster is another example of brands know-how in CFRP-based lightweight design. A monocoque made from carbon-fiber reinforced polymer forms the basis of the Roadster. What is more - all exterior parts are made from CFRP. The car also incorporates a full complement of safety systems from airbags through to the adapted ESP handling system.

Carbon fiber can be found also throughout the interior. For instance, the carbon fiber monocoque is visible inside the car around the central tunnel and the sills, while the two lightweight bucket seats are made of brand's Forged Composite. In addition, the woven carbon-fiber CarbonSkin is utilized to clad the entire cockpit, part of the seats and the headliner.

The lightweight design results of course in impressively low kerb weight. This model weighs only 1,490 kilograms (3,278 pounds). A logical result is a power-to-weight ratio of just 1.99 kg/hp (4.38 lbs/hp) which guarantees extreme performance.
