The 2013 Lamborghini Veneno, which is Spanish for poison, is one of the rarest cars in the world. Named after one of the most aggressive and ferocious bulls in the history of bullfighting, this beast of a car is part of the 50th year celebration of Lamborghini! Is it worthy of this name? Read on and find out.
Lamborghini Veneno: Does it Sting?
1. The Exterior
The Veneno looks nothing like the Aventador, its predecessor. Instead, this supercar is clad with a huge aerodynamic wing on its forceful, arrow-shaped front. Purposely made for better air circulation, the design makes it look a little beaky, while also staying faithful to the extremely proportionate Lambo signature look. As if mimicking the Veneno’s bullhorns in its design, this supercar features the very first Y-shaped angular headlamps that stretch up to the car’s fenders and vertical doors.
On the side view, the Veneno has noticeably larger sills and enormous front and rear wheel arches. Its rear, on the other hand, sports 21s alloy carbon rim-rings that allow proper air circulation to its hot carbon-ceramic brake discs. An installed diffuser also tucks four splitter-divided exhaust pipes. To complete its aeronautic design, all of the above features are complemented by an adjustable rear wing.
2. The Interior

The Veneno’s interior also boasts the use of carbon fiber. A look at its central tunnel and sills will reveal its carbon fiber monocoque. Some of the highlights of its interiors are the two Forged Composite lightweight bucket seats and the woven carbon fiber cockpit.
The redesigned graphics on its instrument panel add to the overall beauty of the interior. Moreover, the Veneno also offers new features like the G-meter, which provides the driver with all the necessary information to control the car.
This supercar is installed with an enhanced version of the 6.5 liter V-12 Aventador engine. Its enlarged intake paths and optimized thermodynamics produce an impressive 750 horsepower, allowing for speeds of 0-62mph in 2.8 seconds, up to a top speed of 220mph.
You can enjoy all these features for the staggering amount of $4,000,000! How much will this supercar be worth in 5 years? We can’t tell. However, its rarity will surely affect the price tag for years to come.

Now for the bad news…If you have your eyes on a Veneno, there’s no use saving up for one. There have been only four models of the Veneno ever produced. Three of them were sold to the public and the other one is kept in the factory. Antoine Dominic from Long Island owns the first one, while Kris Singh from Florida owns another. The third Veneno owner remains a mystery. Keep your millions in the bank! Sadly, there’s no way you can drive a Veneno right now.
