The Lamborghini Veneno Makes its American Debut at Pebble Beach and The Quail
The Lamborghini Veneno made its world debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show and shocked pretty much everyone, but not everyone took too kindly to it. Now, you’ll get a chance to see if this is either the best or worst Lamborghini you’ve ever seen, as Lambo will display the supercar at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance this weekend.
Prior to it hitting the Pebble Beach Concourse, the Veneno will make its North American debut on August 16th, at The Quail, A Motorsport Gathering, which will also bring into focus classic Lamborghini models, like the 1963 350 GTV. Veneno’s unveiling in Monterey is part of Lamborghini’s celebration of its 50th anniversary.
"We’re celebrating 100 years of innovation in half the time – what better way than by showing the first Lamborghini ever built alongside our latest racing prototype and road-going super sports car - the Veneno."
The $4 million supercar will be delivered to its lucky owners later this year.

Unveiled at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, the new Veneno supercar is based on the latest Aventador, but it takes its design language to extremes. The model can be easily distinguished, thanks to its large aerodynamic wing with huge channels and those Y-shaped angular headlamps.
Under the hood, the model gets an updated version of the 6.5 liter V-12 engine found in the Aventador. In the Veneno the engine delivers a total of 750 horsepower, and thanks to its reduced weight, the sprint from 0 to 60 mph is now made in 2.8 seconds and top speed goes up to 221 mph.
