Lamborghini has just revealed the insane beast created in celebration to the 100th anniversary of Ferruccio Lamborghini, the man who founded the Raging Bull brand (you can notice by the surname). Folks, this is the Lamborghini Centenario.
Starting with the design; well, the Lamborghini Centenario is not a thing I would call beautiful but, on the other hand, it is insane as hell.
Having in mind the philosophy of “Form follows function”, Lamborghini provided to the car more intakes, outlets, and ducts.
At the front, we can see a more aggressive front splitter with fins such as the side skirts, the bonnet has large air scoops which contribute to downforce on the front axle. Furthermore, air flows through ducts within the front headlight casing and others in the side skirts and around the wheel arches, improving the airflow to the rear radiators and providing optimized cooling.
At the side, the Centenario has a massive air intake and at the top a scoop. The futuristic rear end features an aggressive diffuser and an active rear wing as well as those characteristic Y-shaped taillights.
The Lamborghini Centenario also rides on a new set of wheels wrapped by Pirelli P-Zero tires. The exclusive 20″/21″ (front and rear, respectively) wheels feature a 5-spoke fan-shaped design with a center-locking nut.
The Lamborghini Centenario is based on the Aventador and uses a monocoque and body made from carbon fiber what contributes to a (dry) weight of 1520 kg (3351lbs). It means 55 kg (121lbs) less than Aventador and just 5kg (11lbs) if we compare to the Aventador SV.
A 6.5-liter V12 engine developing 770hp (759bhp) pulses beneath the carbon skin of the Lamborghini Centenario pushing the car from inertia to 100 km/h (62mph) in 2.8 seconds, to 300km/h (186mph) in 23.5 seconds and it can achieve a top speed superior to 350km/h (217mph).
The interior can be finished to each Centenario client’s specification. Lightweight carbon fiber sports seats are included, with new stitching on the length of the dashboard, steering wheel, sun visors, rocker covers, and the new inner door panels made of carbon fiber and Alcantara.
The Centenario’s interior also includes a high definition 10.1-inch touchscreen, along with internet, email, social media and Apple CarPlay compatibility.
The Lamborghini Centenario is limited to only 40 units worldwide (20 coupés and 20 roadsters) and will be delivered from autumn 2016 and throughout 2017. All the units have already been sold at a starting price of 1.75 million euros ($1.90 million at current rates) plus taxes.
