The Lamborghini Veneno Roadster has finally made its public debut in style on board the Italian naval aircraft carrier Nave Cavour on 1st December 2013. The car was unveiled on the flight deck of the 240 metre ship while docked in Abu Dhabi's Mina Zayed port. The company will produce only nine units of this limited edition super sports car.
“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.”
Lamborghini Veneno Roaster is a fully road legal, open top car powered by a mid-mounted 6.5-litre V12 engine, which is capable of churning out a maximum power output of 750bhp. It touches the 100kmph from standstill in mere 2.9 seconds, with a top speed of 355kmph. The colour in which the car was shown in Abu Dhbai was 'Rosso Veneno', though each buyer will be able to chose their favourite colour. Priced at 3.3 million euro excluding taxes, all the nine units will be built during 2014.
