Back in late 2013 Automobili Lamborghini SpA unveiled the Veneno Roadster, after earlier building only 3 customer units of the Veneno LP750-4 priced at €3,000,000 each before taxes, they decided the Veneno Roadster would see a production of 9 units in total with an MSRP of €3,300,000 this time ... but like the Aventador J shown at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, the Veneno Roadster would not feature a roof ... so that might have kept some people from buying her.
In August 2015 the impressive Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 Superveloce Roadster was unveiled in the Unites States of America, the absolute flagship in the Aventador lineup, and with 750hp she offered the same power as the limited edition Veneno Roadster ... but unlike the latter this Roadster comes with two roof panels that can be fitted in case you get caught in the rain.
The Aventador Superveloce Roadster was also a limited edition, but with 500 units and a more reasonable price of €357,000 or US$ 530,075 this supercar was the next best thing after the multi-million Veneno Roadster ... do note that all 500 units sold out quickly, and prices quickly went up to $700,000 and more, but that's still a lot less than the Veneno naturally.
As an option the Aventador Superveloce (both Coupé and Roadster) could be fitted with an amazing looking, center lock Diantus wheel, with the nut available in either black or red ... but what if you really liked those Veneno wheels? Fear not, there are a few possible options you could follow up on.
First up is the 7-Razze wheel from the Accessori Originali catalog from Lamborghini, which is in fact the original wheel from the Veneno but without the carbon fiber ring, Lamborghini even offers a conversion kit to change the original five bolt wheel hub to a center lock version just in case you didn't order the Diantus wheels on the Superveloce, or you want to install the 7-Razze on a regular Aventador.
But you would prefer a carbon fiber version of the 7-Razze Veneno wheel? Now what ... again not a problem, at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show none other than Mansory showed their interpretation of the 7-Razze, finished with a clear carbon fiber ring ... while not exactly the same as the Veneno wheel, it does come very close indeed as can be seen on the one-off built for James Stunt.
In comes Vitesse AuDessus, based in Bethesda USA and offering a replica of the 7-Razze in a clear carbon fiber finish, or if you prefer the Diantus wheels you can also have that one in carbon fiber now, and Vitesse AuDessus doesn't stop at wheels alone ... they do offer a few different styles, all in carbon fiber, but the best is yet to come ... carbon fiber exterior parts for the Aventador Superveloce.
First up we have the 'Essentials Package' offered at $15,525 (add $20,000 for a set of carbon fiber wheels by the way) which comes with a new lower front bumper, mirror covers, mirror mounts, side sills and a lower rear diffuser ... all in clear carbon fiber to replace the parts that come with a satin black finish from the factory in Sant'Agata, Vitesse AuDessus offers either a glossy finish or a matte finish to match the other, matte carbon fiber parts on the Aventador Superveloce.
The ''Extended package' adds a carbon fiber hood to the above for a total of $22,275 without wheel naturally, when buying the carbon fiber wheels without any of the two packages you are looking at $25,000 a set by the way, and they come in the Diantus style, the 7-Razze design ... and a few in-house developments.
If all these prices are just a little too high for you after just signing over the price of admission into the Aventador Superveloce club you can always take a look at the vast list of carbon fiber parts offered by Vitesse AuDessus for your new V12 ... from a $950 'Fuel door' over a $10,525 set of front fenders with louvers to a staggering $18,750 for a pair of replacement doors in light weight carbon fiber ... take a look at the complete list in their Catalog.
At the moment we can only find 3D renders of everything they offer, their website and their FaceBook profile show lots of images, but up to now only renders ... would be great to see an actual Aventador Superveloce with all those carbon fiber parts installed rolling on lightweight Veneno wheels ... they state their carbon fiber wheels are 25kg lighter than the original rims.
