If you thought Lamborghini couldn’t get much wilder than its outrageous Aventador, meet the Veneno. With a price tag approaching $4 million and a limited run of three, it’s the most exclusive Lambo ever. Automobili Lamborghini introduced the Veneno at the Geneva Auto Show to celebrate the automaker’s 50th anniversary. With 750 horsepower on tap, Lamborghini says the Veneno accelerates from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 2.8 seconds and carries a top speed of 219 miles per hour. The Veneno features a twelve-cylinder power unit with a displacement of 6.5 liters, a 7-speed ISR transmission with 5 driving modes and permanent all-wheel drive, as well as a racing chassis with pushrod suspension and horizontal spring/damper units.

The Veneno benefits from the manufacturer’s expertise in the development and execution of carbon-fiber materials. The complete chassis is produced as a CFRP monocoque, as is the outer skin of this car. The inside features Lamborghini’s Forged Composite and CarbonSkin. In keeping with the tradition of the brand, the name of the Veneno originates from a legendary fighting bull. The manufacturer points out that Veneno is the name of one of the strongest and most aggressive fighting bulls. Veneno the bull became popular in 1914, when he fatally wounded torero José Sánchez Rodríguez during a bullfight in the arena Sanlúcar de Barrameda’s, Andalusia, Spain.
