Lamborghini Veneno Roadster makes public debut on Italian aircraft carrier in Abu Dhabi

The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster made its public debut on board the 240 metre Italian naval aircraft carrier Nave Cavour on Sunday in Abu Dhabi’s Mina Zayed port.

The Veneno Roadster will be limited to just 9 units, priced at 3.3 million euro (£2.79 million) excluding taxes.

Powered by a naturally-aspirated 750bhp 6.5-litre V12 linked to extremely fast-shifting ISR transmission with five modes, permanent all-wheel drive, the Veneno goes from 0-62mph in just 2.9 seconds and onto a top speed of 221mph.

The Veneno Roadster was shown in the specially developed colour ‘Rosso Veneno’, but each client will be able to individualize the colour of his Veneno Roadster to suit their personal preference.

The Veneno Roadster has no roof, just a strong rollover bar for optimum safety.

The design is very aggressive, focused on optimum aerodynamics and stability.

This street legal beast also has racing chassis with pushrod suspension and horizontal spring/damper units.

The Veneno Roadster monocoque is made from carbon-fiber reinforced polymer, which forms the basis of the Roadster.

All exterior parts are also made from CFRP and the carbon fibre is also 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 Veneno Roadster has a dry weight of 1,490kg and a power-to-weight ratio of 1.99 kg/hp.
