The Roadster scores the same 552kW 6.5 litre V12 engine as its stablemate, which can propel the open-top supercar from zero to 100km/h in just 2.9 seconds (0.1 seconds slower than the hardtop) on its way to a top speed of 355 km/h.
Power is delivered to all four wheels via a five-mode, seven-speed ISR transmission lifted from the Aventador, and the car is mounted on a racing chassis with pushrod suspension and horizontal spring and damper units.
That radically-designed body isn’t just for show either, with every aerodynamic property considered in its development. The front end aero adds substantial downforce, while the motorsport-inspired wing at the back end is adjustable.
Much like the Veneno hard top, the Roadster's wheels incorporate a carbon-fibre ring around the outer perimeter, to helps extract air from the carbon ceramic brake discs.
Veneno Roadster owners will have to keep an eye on the weather though, as there is no available ‘cover’ of any description for the car’s cabin. Carbon-fibre abounds on the inside - including on the two lightweight bucket seats - which helps to keep the overall weight down to just 1,490kg.
While the "Rosso Veneno" paint was developed exclusively for the Veneno Roadster, each customer will be able to individualize their own vehicle to suit their personal preferences.
You’ll have a better chance of securing this Veneno too.
Whereas Lamborghini limited the hard top model to just three examples (one for each colour of the Italian flag), production of the Veneno Roadster has been tripled to nine examples, with each costing 3.3 million Euros (AU$4.67 million) plus on-road costs.
