Introducing the most powerful Lamborghini ever: the Veneno LP740-4 (pics from all sides)

You are looking at the most powerful Lamborghini to ever meet a production schedule…a supercar designed to celebrate the Italian automaker’s 50th anniversary – with the striking new Lamborghini Veneno LP740-4 slated to make its formal debut tomorrow at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.

We have known for quite some time now that Lamborghini was planning to introduce a production model that would be the most powerful supercar that they have ever sold to help celebrate the company’s 50th birthday but thanks to information leaked on the internet last night, we know that this historic car is the Lamborghini Veneno LP740-4. Details are limited on the Veneno but thanks to the bit of information included in the early leaked magazine image – we know the details that matter most to both buyers and dreamers.

As expected, the Lamborghini Veneno LP740-4 is powered by the same 6.5L V12 that is found in the current Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 but as the name would denote (for those familiar with Lamborghini naming schemes), the Veneno offers a touch more power. The Veneno’s V12 funnels 740 horsepower to all four wheels via a 7-speed automated manual transmission and a high performance all wheel drive system. No other specifications are known but we do know that the Veneno has a top speed of 220 miles per hour and I’m guessing that this vicious Lambo will probably have a 0-60 time somewhere in the 2.7 second range. This means that not only is the Veneno the most powerful production car that the company has ever sold but it is also one of the quickest and fastest. That’s Quite an amazing bragging right considering the long list of ultra high performance cars introduced over the last 50 years.
