At an exclusive ‘Italian evening’ attended by authorities, clients, VIPs and media, the limited edition super sports car, of which only nine will be produced, was formally unveiled on the flight deck of the 240 metre ship while docked in Abu Dhabi’s Mina Zayed port.

“The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster is one of the world’s most exclusive cars with the most extraordinary performance,” says Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Lamborghini, commenting on the event. “We are honored that Lamborghini was chosen to represent the Italian car industry in the UAE, as a perfect example of iconic Italian super sports cars, and that we have the opportunity to show the Veneno Roadster for the first time in Abu Dhabi. Lamborghini has an extremely strong following in the region for its super sports cars, with the Middle East one of our largest markets in the world.”

The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster is a fully road legal, open top car, bringing the aerodynamic efficiency of a racing prototype to the road, with extreme design and breathtaking performance. The nine units will be built during 2014, priced at 3.3 million euro excluding taxes.

With a maximum power output of 552 kW / 750 hp, the V12 Veneno Roadster accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds, with a top speed of 355 km/h. Shown in Abu Dhabi in the specially developed colour ‘Rosso Veneno’, each client will be able to individualize the colour of his Veneno Roadster to suit their personal preference.

The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster was unveiled in the presence of His Excellency Giorgio Starace, Italian Ambassador to the UAE and the Admiral of High Seas Forces, Paolo Treu. Guests on board Nave Cavour enjoyed hospitality from chef Corrado Corti of Italy’s famous Hotel Splendido in Portofino, who flew in especially for the occasion. Singer and actress Elena Bonelli opened the event with the Italian national anthem; fashion designer Giada Curti offered a tableau vivant of her creations with ten top models. One of the happy few to sit in the Veneno Roadster was former captain of the national Italian soccer team and 2006 world champion Fabio Cannavaro.

Lamborghini Veneno Roadster @ 3.3 million euros each excl. tax

As a further highlight of its 50th anniversary year, Automobili Lamborghini is presenting one of the most exceptional super sports cars of all time. The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster is an open racing prototype with an extreme design and breathtaking performance. And it is one of the world’s most exclusive automobiles – not more than nine units will be built during the course of 2014 and sold at a price of 3.3 million Euros (excl. tax).

The Veneno Roadster is extreme and guarantees an intense driving experience – because open means truly open. There is no roof, just a strong rollover bar for optimum safety. The design is focused on optimum aerodynamics and stability through fast corners – with handling akin to that of a racing prototype. Yet it is fully road legal.

With a maximum output of 552 kW / 750 hp, the Veneno Roadster accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds and top speed stands at 355 km/h. The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster is driven by a twelve-cylinder engine with a displacement of 6.5 liters and is equipped with 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.

The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster brings the aerodynamic efficiency of a racing prototype to the road. Every detail of its form pursues a clear function – exceptional dynamics, optimum downforce with minimal drag and perfect cooling of the high-performance engine. Therfore the Veneno Roadster is unmistakably a Lamborghini; it sticks firmly to the consistent design philosophy of all the super sports cars from Sant’Agata Bolognese. That includes the extreme proportions, as well as the powerfully arrow-shaped front end and the interplay between razor-sharp lines and precise surfaces.

The entire design of the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster has been laid out for perfect airflow and downforce. The front end works as a large aerodynamic wing. The visual division of the rear fenders from the car body is a reference to the world of racing cars and optimizes the aerodynamic flow. The smooth underbody transitions into a substantial diffuser framing the four sizable exhaust pipes divided by a splitter. Large openings serve to ventilate the engine bay and direct airflow to the rear wing. The design of the adjustable rear wing is the product of motorsport experience and extensive aerodynamic simulation to ensure optimum airflow in the interaction of the rear wing with the rear diffuser.

The design of the exclusive alloy wheels is also determined by aerodynamic functionality – a carbon-fiber ring around the wheel rim works like a turbine to deliver additional cooling air to the carbon-ceramic brake discs. The intense paint color “Rosso Veneno” was developed exclusively for the Veneno Roadster, although each single customer will be able to individualize his own vehicle to suit his personal preferences.

The Veneno Roadster is further proof of Automobili Lamborghini’s unique competence in CFRP-based lightweight design. A monocoque made from carbon-fiber reinforced polymer forms the basis of the Roadster. All exterior parts are made from CFRP. The Veneno Roadster meets all safety and registration requirements worldwide, and naturally also incorporates a full complement of safety systems from airbags through to the adapted ESP handling system.

Carbon fiber dominates also the interior of the Veneno Roadster. The carbon fiber monocoque is visible inside the car around the central tunnel and the sills. The two lightweight bucket seats are made from Lamborghini’s patented Forged Composite. The woven carbon-fiber CarbonSkin is used to clad the entire cockpit, part of the seats and the headliner. Like a hi-tech fabric, this extremely fine-looking carbon-fiber matting fits perfectly to any form and reduces the weight of the vehicle.

The systematic, carbon-fiber, lightweight design of the Veneno Roadster is not only visible, it is also evident on the scales: with a dry weight of just 1,490 kilograms (3,278 pounds), the Veneno Roadster benefits from a power-to-weight ratio of just 1.99 kg/hp (4.38 lbs/hp) which guarantees a performance that is nothing short of mind-blowing. Even the stunning acceleration figure of 2.9 seconds cannot adequately describe it. Despite an aerodynamic setup configured for extreme downforce, the Veneno Roadster possesses exceptionally low wind resistance which allows it to reach a top speed of 355 km/h (221 mph)

Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Roadster Special Preview in Malaysia

Automobili Lamborghini held a special preview of the new Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 Roadster at Lamborghini Kuala Lumpur showroom in Glenmarie, Shah Alam. The LP700-4 Roadster is the most exciting series production Lamborghini ever built and the new benchmark in the world of open-top luxury super sports cars. It is even faster and more powerful than the Pagani Roadster.

The Lamborghini Aventador coupe introduced in 2011 and delivered more than 1,300 units globally till date. This year, Lamborghini is now offering the convertible version of the Aventador known as Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster. The starting price of this supercar will be set at RM3 million and the delivery lead time is up to 18 months.

 

The new Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster can immediately be recognized by the unique profile of its upper area, which extends along newly designed geometric lines from the removable two-piece roof to the engine hood on the front.

The new Aventador LP700-4 Roadster boasts record performance. The V12 6.5-litre natural aspirated engine on the LP700-4 Roadster output 700hp and mated with an ISR 7-speed transmission. It accelerates from 0-100 km/h within 3 seconds and a maximum speed up to 350 km/h. The engine and drive train are centrally located to optimise the balance for handling. In addition, the Aventador Roadster also uses the push-rod suspension like the Aventador Coupe.

 

Part of the effort to improve fuel efficiency, the V12 powerplant includes a cylinder deactivation system when the engine is working at partial capacity and Stop & Start system.

According to Lamborgini, the two-piece roof is made entirely from carbon fibre using various technologies such as RTM and Forged Composite. These technologies guarantee maximum aesthetic performance and stiffness although each component is weighing less than 6 kg. These two parts are removable and attaching it back easily.

 

Technically, the rear pillar has been redesigned to support the removable roof, accommodate an automatic protection system for passengers, and provide the engine compartment with ample ventilation.

The engine hood on the Roadster differs from the hood on the Coupe because of its central “spinal column” with two pairs of hexagonal windows connected at the sides as if they were hyper-tech armour plates. The main purpose of the design is to cool the engine, drain off rain water properly and, of course, to show off the V12 engine and its bay.

 

Besides, the powered rear windshield not only influences the flow of air in the vehicle, but also controls the experience of the sound from the twelve-cylinder engine. The wind deflector, on the other hand, delivers almost complete calm inside the car, even at high speed. It rests on the front windshield frame and can likewise be stored in the luggage compartment when not in use.

  

The range of colours available for the Roadster has been supplemented with a very light, metallic blue color, Azzuro Thetis, whose tone varies with the angle of the light. This colour recalls the shade of the extraordinarily beautiful 1968 Miura Roadster, and both highlights and reinforces the lines of the vehicle by adding strength and dynamism.

The interior use of leather called Sabbia Nefertem highlights the superb hand-made craftsmanship of the upholstery from Sant’ Agata Bolognese and is a perfect match for the exterior in Azzuro Thetis.

The new Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster is fitted with new Dione 20”/21” lightweight forged aluminium rims. The set of wheels lower the weight of the vehicle by 10kg as compared with the standard set of rims.

 

In conclusion, the new Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 coupe is an exceptional vehicle for its design, with its build concept based on a carbon fibre monocoque and superior dynamic behaviour resulting from advanced technological solutions. The entire package of the Aventador Roadster offers more extraordinary driving experience without compromising much on performance.
