Lamborghini has unveiled the $3.9 million Veneno, the fastest supercar most powerful road car ever built at the Geneva Motor Show. Only 3 three of the two-seaters cars will be built, one each in red, green, and white to celebrate the Italian supercar firm’s 50th anniversary.
The Veneno comes with a 750-horsepower, 6.5-liter, naturally aspirated V-12 engine, seven-speed automated manual transmission and permanent all-wheel drive, all of which help it accelerate from zero to 60 in 2.8 seconds and hit a top speed approaching 220 miles an hour.
It has 20 inch alloy wheels at the front and 21 inches at the rear. A carbon-fibre ring around the wheel rim works like a turbine to deliver additional cooling air to the powerful carbon-ceramic brake discs as they get hot.
