FIRST PICS! Lamborghini Veneno breaks cover

By Glenn Butler, 05 Mar 2013 Features

Lamborghini Veneno

Top speed? 355km/h, enough to get from Melbourne to Sydney in just over 2.5 hours.

When does awesome become ugly?

I reckon Lamborghini's latest 'one-off', the Veneno supercar, is not the prettiest fighting bull to come out of Sant'agata. But I also reckon that, slip behind the wheel and all thoughts of aesthetics become irrelevant.

The Veneno is based on the Aventador, but gets carbon-fibre bodywork and major engine mods to elevate its performance significantly. We're talking 552kW from its 6.5-litre V12 and a claimed 0-100km/h time of just 2.8 seconds.
