Forza Motorsport 5: The Time of the Veneno

The Lamborghini Veneno is one of the most requested rides to be featured on Forza Motorsport 5 because this is truly one of the best Lamborghinis ever made to celebrate 50 years of Lamborghini. Of course, we never got the chance to be behind the wheel of the Veneno because only three were made and all three were all sold out before its announcement. Pity, but lucky for us, we got Forza Motorsport 5 and the Hot Wheels Car Pack, the last monthly DLC car pack on this game.


Thanks to this DLC Car Pack, our dream of being behind the wheel at the Lamborghini Veneno came true in a virtual way and we got the taste of what is like to drive Lamborghini's 50th birthday present on this game and as a matter of fact, this is not like any Lamborghini I have ever driven in this game.

So, what's it all about the Veneno? Revealed at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, the Lamborghini Veneno is created to celebrate Lamborghini's 50th anniversary. While it was loosely based on the flagship Aventador, the 6.5L V12 that powers the Veneno generates 750PS of power output, making this one of the most powerful Lamborghinis ever made with a 0-100kph time of 2.8 seconds and 355kph of top speed.

Being a track-focused street legal machine, Lamborghini built three Veneno units, each costing three million Euros plus tax, and all three units have already been sold to customers before its announcement.

Veneno is Spanish for "poison" but the naming, in Lamborghini tradition, originates from one of the strongest and most aggressive fighting bulls ever.

You should recall that it was revealed at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show just like the Ferrari LaFerrari and the McLaren P1 and as a matter of that, the un-holy trinity of last year's motor show is finally completed at last or so we think because unlike the LaFerrari and the P1, the Veneno runs solely on petrol and nothing else. Unlike the P1 and the LaFerrari, the Veneno is one of the rarest machines in supercar history and even though it wasn't made to compete against any other supercars, this track-ready road-legal racing machine is probably one of the most potential bedroom wall pin-up for modern youth because when we look at it, it looks gorgeous from every angle and how we dream about these...this is still a better love story than Twilight. He he he...

But this is no Twilight because the Lamborghini Veneno is here to satisfy our craving for super fast European exotics and while it was just an Aventador underneath, driving the Veneno on the racetrack is not too shabby because of its unmatched aerodynamics that keeps it glued to the road and survives a corner evasively like a fighter plane. Thanks to the V12 engine that powers it, superior aerodynamics, and its Formula One-inspired suspension setup, the Lamborghini Veneno is hands down the best Lambo I have ever witnessed in this game and once you drive it, you'll come back for more.

So, have you tried out the Veneno on FM5 yet?
