Lamborghini and Ferrari Unveil Latest Supercars

 

The 83rd International Geneva Motor Show kicked off this week with two new supercars from Italian automakers Lamborghini and Ferrari unveiled. Both are ridiculously expensive at $3.9 million (Lamborghini Veneno) and $1.3 million (Ferrari LaFerrari) and extremely limited (3 Venenos and 499 LaFerraris).

The LaFerrari is also the first hybrid ever created by the famed automaker. Below you will find pictures, specs and details about these engineering marvels.

The Lamborghini Veneno

 
In the year of its 50th anniversary Lamborghini is presenting an extremely exclusive model at the Geneva Motor Show 2013. Only three unique units of the Lamborghini Veneno will be built and sold. With a maximum output of 552 kW / 750 hp, the Veneno accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds and the top speed for this street-legal racing car stands at 355 km/h. It is priced at three million Euros plus tax – and all three units have already been sold to customers.

The Lamborghini Veneno Continued…

 
The Lamborghini Veneno features a twelve-cylinder power unit with a displacement of 6.5 liters, a fast-shifting 7-speed ISR transmission with 5 driving modes and permanent all-wheel drive, as well as a racing chassis with pushrod suspension and horizontal spring/damper units. The Veneno benefits from the expertise Lamborghini possesses in the development and execution of carbon-fiber materials – the complete chassis is produced as a CFRP monocoque, as is the outer skin. The inside features Lamborghini-patented materials such as Forged Composite and CarbonSkin.

The name of the Veneno originates from a legendary fighting bull. Veneno is the name of one of the strongest and most aggressive fighting bulls ever. He is also famous for being one of the fastest bulls in the history of bullfighting. His name became popular in 1914, when he fatally wounded the famous torero José Sánchez Rodríguez during the bullfight in the arena Sanlúcar de Barrameda’s, Andalusia, Spain.

The Lamborghini Veneno Continued…

 
– The Veneno is painted in a grey metallic-look color with individual parts gleaming in the black of the visible carbon-fiber structure. The only car to display all three colors of the Italian flag as an accent is the car shown at Geneva, the unit which will remain property of Lamborghini. The three cars sold to customers each feature a single color of the Italian national flag, together a triology in green, white and red accents and thus representing each a unique piece.

– With a dry weight of 1,450 kilograms (3,190 pounds), the Veneno is 125 kilos (275 pounds) lighter than the already lean Aventador. The beneficial power-to-weight ratio of 1.93 kg/hp (4,25 lbs/hp) guarantees performance
