The Lamborghini Centenario has been regarded as one of the most outrageous supercars around.
Everything about the vehicle is mind-boggling starting with the price of $2.2 million. Would it find any takers at this price? The answer is a resounding yes. Lamborghini made only 20 of the Centenario roadster and all of them have been sold. The Centenario roadster was unveiled only a week ago at the Pebble Beach. The coupe version came out earlier in 2016 to much positive reviews. Lamborghini continues with its tradition of offering naturally aspirated V12 engines to the top of the range models.
Just when it seemed that the era of naturally aspirated V12s were done and dusted, the Lamborghini Centenario roadster comes to the party with 770 bhp available at the touch of the right foot. One of the fastest roadsters that money can buy, Centenario roadster is able to hit 0 to 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds according to the company. It will be able to achieve a top speed of 212 mph. These figures make it the most powerful car from the stables of Lamborghini. They have come out in celebration of founder Ferruccio Lamborghini’s 100th birthday.
Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali claimed that the car also represented a shift into a new design era for the supercar maker from Italy. Long have Lamborghini cars been on the bedroom wall posters with flamboyant designs. The company has managed to preserve this heritage while adding convenience to the vehicle. Some of the new age features on the Centenario roadster include a 10.1-inch screen for the infotainment system, which supports Apple CarPlay. No longer is Lamborghini extremely difficult to drive in city traffic, as it comes with all the convenience features.
The 6.2 L V12 engine not only makes more than 750 bhp but it also develops 508 lb-ft of torque to keep the monster kicking in all of the rev range.
Those who have bought the Centenario roadster will be able to customize it with any color of the preference. This aspect even extends to the finish of the vehicle. It is possible to order the Centenario roadster with only carbon fiber materials. Even though it is more expensive than the coupe version, it will be even more exclusive. The 20 vehicles that have been manufactured and sold will be available once deliveries begin in 2017. The coupe model is priced at $2 million.
