The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster was revealed in October, but the car's first public outing didn't happen until December 1, when it was unveiled to potential customers on the Italian naval aircraft carrier Nave Cavour docked in Abu Dhabi’s Mina Zayed port.
Only nine Venenos will be produced. The exclusive "Italian Evening" event was attended by authorities, clients, VIPs and media.
“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,” Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann explained the unusual launch event.
Priced at €3.3 million (excluding taxes) each, the ultra-limited number of Lamborghini Veneno Roadsters will be built in 2014.
The Veneno Roadster is powered by a 740hp (750PS) 6.5-liter V12 engine that propels it from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 355 km/h (221 mph). Its engine is matted to a fast-shifting ISR transmission with five modes that sends power to all four wheels. It also features a racing chassis with pushrod suspension and horizontal spring/damper units. Lamborghini says that just like the hardtop version, the Veneno Roadster features the "aerodynamic efficiency of a racing prototype" with the design laid out to favor perfect airflow and downforce.
The car is built around a monocoque made from carbon-fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP), with all exterior parts being made from the same material.
