Lamborghini is celebrating what would have been founder Ferruccio Lamborghini’s hundredth birthday with the special-edition Centenario, a 770-horsepower V12-powered supercar. The Italian exotic automaker will build just 20 roadsters and 20 coupés.
Lamborghini unveiled the limited-edition car at the Geneva Motor Show, revealing a car based around their tried-and-tested V12 but with radical super-aerodynamic bodywork.
The naturally aspirated 12-cylinder engine has been tweaked to become the brand’s most powerful yet, with some 770 horsepower helping launch the 1,520-kg car from zero to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds, and from zero to 300 km/h in 23.5 seconds. Top speed is 350 km/h (217 mph).
The bodywork is made up of a host of wings and vents, as well as a large rear spoiler for downforce at speed. The Centenario also features rear-wheel steering; and an internet-connected and Apple CarPlay-integrated touchscreen infotainment system.
The total run of 40 Centenario coupés and roadsters has already been completely sold out, of course, each at a starting price of 1.75 million Euro, or $2.5 million Canadian.
