Based loosely on the Lamborghini Aventador, the Veneno's name is derived from the Italian word for "venom". It is also one of the most expensive cars in the world, and is currently the most expensive Lamborghini ever sold, with a price tag of US$4.5 million, beating the Sesto Elemento's US$2.2 - 2.9 million.
Reflecting its extreme price tag, only four units of the Veneno were built: one for Lamborghini as a test car (Car Zero), and three for customers. Nine units of an open-top version, the Lamborghini Veneno Roadster, were built. These units were all built to celebrate Lamborghini's 50th anniversary.
A departure from traditional Lamborghini styling is represented in the Veneno. Radical bulging lines, a wing that looks like it belongs on an LMP car, and aero on top of more aero; these are just a few of the elements that make the most expensive production car in the world unique. Celebrating the 50th anniversary of Lamborghini, the Veneno is a street-legal racecar, loosely based on the Aventador. We say “loosely,” because not only is the Veneno more powerful and higher-revving, thanks to larger air intakes and a modified exhaust system, but its form is quite obviously its own. Cues have been taken from the Aventador in the Y-shaped headlights and taillights, but the Veneno is much more of a design experiment like the 2006 Miura concept; with a quality that is at once timeless and jaw-dropping in all categories, including that $4.1 million price tag. Lamborghini built one for itself as a demo car, and sold three, each accented with a color from the Italian flag. The red accented car went to to Antoine Dominic, owner of Lamborghini Long Island. The second, with green accents, went to prominent Lamborghini fan Kris Singh. The final model, with white accents, was caught in Hong Kong on its way to Macau. Seeing one in the real world will most likely never happen, so take advantage of Forzavista and get as up close and personal with this stunning masterpiece.
The Lamborghini Veneno is a mid-engined, all-wheel drive coupe that features the stripes of the Italian flag on the sides and uses scissor doors like those from the Aventador.
The Lamborghini Veneno features an uptuned 6.5 L (6,498 cc) L539 V12 engine from the Aventador, with a higher power output of 740 hp (552 kW). It features larger air intakes and an altered exhaust system, raising the redline further. What remains unchanged, though, is the torque output of 509 ft·lb (690 N·m).
The Veneno also features a new front splitter and a fixed rear wing to generate much more downforce compared to the normal Aventador. It has a dry weight of 3197 lb (1450 kg), which was increased to 3218 lb (1460 kg) in the Forza titles and increased further to 3362 lb (1525 kg) in Forza Horizon 3.
The Veneno is capable of 0 - 60 mph (97 km/h) in 2.7 seconds, 0 - 100 mph (161 km/h) in 5.8 seconds, and a top speed of 221 mph (356 km/h), which is only exceeded in Forza Horizon 3, as the Motorsport and Forza Horizon 2 renditions of the Veneno can only reach 209 mph (337 km/h).
The Lamborghini Veneno uses a high-revving, powerful V12 engine paired with an AWD drivetrain, creating a performance build that favors quick launches and acceleration, including 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 2.7 seconds, and very sharp steering, which is a result of the downforce created by the front splitter and fixed rear wing. In turn, the Veneno also has very efficient braking, which therefore allows the Veneno to take on technical tracks as easily as faster cars with RWD drivetrains. Its top speed is held back by its downforce to 209 mph (337 km/h) on average, far lower than Lamborghini's official top speed specification of 221 mph (356 km/h). However, this was increased to 229 mph (369 km/h) in Forza Horizon 3. The Veneno's closest competition include the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento and Lamborghini Centenario LP 770-4.
In each of the Veneno's Forza Horizon game appearance, the car can be used to reach extreme speeds of over 1014 mph (1632 km/h) via a rare speed glitch.
The Veneno currently stands as the most expensive Lamborghini car in the entire Forza series, costing as high as 4,500,000 CR (or 7,500 - 9,000 TK), which reflects its real life price of US$4.5 million.
The Veneno's front hood remains permanently shut in Forzavista, unlike the real-life rendition of the car, which can have its front hood opened.
The Veneno's display does not fit into its dashboard. This error is also seen on the Aventador, Centenario, and Aventador SV.
