Description

Offered for sale is this 2015 Lamborghini Veneno Roadster.

Fans of the supercar have recently witnessed radical changes in the approach to achieving ultimate speed. Over the span of an entire century, horsepower has seen a steady increase, but the means of motivation was the constant - the internal combustion engine. V8, V12, V16’s, WR-16’s, turbos and superchargers, there were constant variations on the theme, but the backbeat remained the same - petroleum power, and lots of it.

But as everyone started looking towards the future, the development of electric and hydrogen power started in earnest. It began at the edges, on the fringe, but in fits and starts it began to mature into practical propulsion for the general public. Every major manufacturer began considering what it meant for them, and the products they offered, as they peered into their corporate crystal balls and tried to see what the future held for them. And what you often saw, in addition to hints about what the future had in store, was how these manufacturers started making the most of what they had. If you love what you make, you make the most of what you have.

This end of an era approach to production was particularly poignant at Lamborghini. Under the auspices of Audi nee the Volkswagen Group, the Italian sports car concern had thrived, both with the quality of their product and their sales. The 10-cylinder 'entry' level Gallardo was an unqualified success, but it was the flagship 12-cylinder bulls that improved in leaps and bounds. From the Diablo to the Murcielago, and through to the Aventador, the icon blended the outrageous personality with true capability and competency. The Aventador, in particular, became the platform that Lamborghini used to essentially make hay while the sun shined. So from around 2010 into the early 2020s, the variants began to branch out in different directions, celebrating the iconic form factor of the mid-engine V12 supercar with different takes on where it was going. The resulting proliferation from that period runs the gamut - coupes and roadsters, hybrid drivetrains, tributes to past Lamborghini icons, the track focused street car category, and then finishes off with fully fettled, factory race specification, not legal for street use. It’s only proper that SBX Cars offer all of these variations, letting buyers pick their flavor.

The Veneno is the answer to the question, “what if I love the Aventador, but I don’t feel it goes far enough?” The Veneno is what happens when Lamborghini throws down the gauntlet - taking one of the original expressions of the supercar with a 740 hp V12 and stretching the limit of what can be driven on the street. This was the mission that Lamborghini set for the Veneno, and in its own public statements explained how its racing prototype optimized aerodynamics are applied to a road car. With a completely redesigned body that maximizes aero downforce and reduces lift, and the large rear carbon fiber wing aided by a central fin with adjustability, the Veneno starts with Aventador mechanicals, but then has its own exclusive carbon fiber monocoque. Along with carbon fiber body and interior panels, the extensive use of the lightweight material cuts almost 300 pounds overall from the weight of a standard Aventador. Purposeful to be sure, and Lamborghini, as expected, makes sure the Veneno stands apart visually, resulting in an exterior design that makes an Aventador seem practically pedestrian. 

It’s important to note that the visual changes made here aren’t cosmetic. The sculpted exterior means that the Veneno looks distinctly different from the Aventador, but retains traditional Lamborghini design elements to tie the Veneno to its cousins in subtle ways - even if it’s hard to describe anything about it as subtle. The bodywork is sculpted for downforce and stability, right down to the dorsal fin extending down the back deck.

The last detail Lamborghini signed off on - exclusivity. There are a grand total of nine Veneno Roadsters in the world. So even in the rarefied air of limited production exotics, the Veneno is guaranteed to be highly prized throughout the world.

This example of the Veneno Roadster is finished in black with Verde accents over a Verde/Nero interior, and is powered by a 6.5-liter, 750 hp (552 kW) naturally-aspirated V12, running power to all four wheels through a seven-speed, single-clutch automated transmission. It has covered 1,778 km (about 1,108 mi), and is located in Dubai.
