Celebrating Ferruccio Lamborghini’s Birth brings Centenario

Celebrating Ferruccio Lamborghini’s birth, the exclusive Centenario supercar has just made its debut in Geneva.

Despite that, the 770 HP supercar that’ll be available in just 40 examples, 20 Coupes and 20 Roadsters at a €1.75 million (1.9$ equivalent) price tag has already been sold out.

Accelerating from naught to 100 km/h (62 mph) takes only 2.8 seconds, 0 to 300 km/h (186 mph) 23.5 seconds and the top speed exceeds 350 km/h (217 mph). Braking from 100 km/h to a standstill is achieved in just 30 meters!

The Centenario uses mococoque and body made from carbon fiber, tipping the scale at 1,520 kg, 55 kg less than the Aventador on which it is based. It measures 4,924 mm long and 1,143 m high, meaning 144 mm longer and 7 mm taller than the Sant’Agata Bolognese flagship.

The aerodynamics are carefully managed with inlets, large air scoops in the front bonnet, air scoops on the roof, extending rear wing, aggressive diffuser with three mid-mounted exhaust pipes and Y-shaped taillights. The machine rides on 20-/21-inch front/rear rims in forged and milled aluminum, wrapped in Pirelli PZero tires, developed specifically for the rear-wheel steering found on the Centenario.

The interior can be finished to each client’s specification and it includes lightweight carbon fiber sports seats, new stitching on the length of the dashboard, steering wheel, sunvisors, rocker covers and new carbon fiber-made inner door panels, wrapped in Alcantara.

Sat-nav with a high-def 10.1-inch touchscreen is at the driver’s disposal, along with internet, e-mail, social media, online apps and Apple CarPlay compatibility.

The Centenario continues on the same path started with the Reventon, which included the Sesto Elemento, Aventador J and Veneno.
