Sadly, this is likely as close as we, and many others, will ever get to the hyper limited Lamborghini Centenario. Created in honour of the 100th Birthday of Lamborghini Founder, Ferrucio Lamborghini, the Lamborghini Centenario was revealed earlier this year at the 2016 Geneva Motorshow. Now, five months after its reveal, it has been unleashed for the first time on the fabled Nardo Ring in Italy.
The Lamborghini Centenario was joined on its promotional launch by the Huracan LP-610 and Lamborghini Aventador 750-4 Superveolce. The drive day marks the first opportunity for jounrnalist’s to put the Centenario through its paces.
Based on the Aventador, the Centenario features a tweaked version of the same V12 engine. Thanks to the team at Lamborghini, the Centenario now produces 574kW and accelerates to 100km/h in 2.8sec before powering on to a top speed of more than 350km/h.
Some of the Centenario’s bespoke features include; an extending rear wing to provide increased down force at high speeds, the addition of rear wheel steering for improved high speed turn in and an array of tech upgrades that include internet browsing capability and the addition of Apple CarPlay.
With an asking price of €1.75 million, the Centenario is the most expensive Lamborghini since the 2011 Lamborghini Sesto Elemento. Just in case you had a spare €1.75 million rolling around in your Swiss Bank account, sadly, the 20 roadster and 20 coupe versions have all been spoken for.
