“Futuristic Design Honors the Lamborghini Legend”. That’s how Lamborghini describes its latest creation to honor one hundred years of the great Ferruccio Lamborghini’s birth. This latest Lamborghini, dubbed the Centenario (meaning 100 year anniversary), will only be made in very limited quantities. Only 20 coupes and 20 roadsters will be made and all 40 cars are already sold out, at the massive starting price of 1.75 million Euros.
The Lamborghini Centenario will be a one-off car, much like the Egoista and Veneno, and will pack the same 6.5 liter naturally-aspirated V12 as the Aventador. However, for Centenario duty, Lamborghini has pumped up the power to the tune of 770 hp. Lamborghini claims a 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) time of 2.8 seconds and that it will top 350 km/h (217 mph). That’s sheer madness, but then again look at the car. The brakes will also tear your face off, being able to haul the Lambo to a stop from 100 km/h (62 mph) to 0 in just 30 meters (98 ft).
The Lamborghini Centenario honors a brilliant man who wasn’t satisfied with the supercars of his day, so he set out to make the best supercars in the world. But I can’t put into words what the Centenario means better than the former Automobili Lamborghini President and CEO, Stephan Winkelmann. “The Centenario is a car that perfectly combines tradition and innovation. It looks to the future while honouring the legend that is Ferruccio Lamborghini,” says Winkelmann. “The Centenario is an opportunity for our designers and engineers to transcend some of the constraints of series car production to achieve an incomparable result: the Centenario has immediately proved itself as a desirable collectors’ car, while demonstrating new Lamborghini technologies and outstanding performance. It is the most fitting tribute to Ferruccio Lamborghini in his centenary year: a man who created an exceptional brand, believed that anything was possible, and produced extraordinary, iconic cars. The Centenario is a super sports car for Ferruccio Lamborghini and the future he and we believe in today.”
