Lamborghini Centenario is an iconic model from the popular automobile manufacturer that has finally found its way to customers in Hong Kong.
The first ever car has hit the country but unfortunately it is not going to driven in public roads due to restrictions. However, that wouldn’t stop collectors from purchasing the car and keeping it in their displays just to show that they own the coveted Lamborghini Centenario. The photographs released from the launch event confirmed that the first Centenario model looked very much like the one revealed first at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.
As detailed earlier, the exterior portion of the car is generously covered in carbon fiber material. The particular material plays a huge role in making the car look strikingly good with a sophisticated touch to it. And, the company’s popular yellow color which adorns many other Lamborghini models continue to be found in the upcoming Centenario as well. A copious amount of yellow shades combined with dark grey tones have been used in the exterior. It has also been carried out to the rear diffuser, side skirts and on the front splitter.
The best part about the car is that it is not only designed to look gorgeous but also features an extremely potent powertrain that makes it the complete package it deserves to be. Under the carbon fiber covered bonnet, the Lamborghini model is powered by a 6.5-liter V12 engine. The same engine is already being used by the Aventador but has been tweaked slightly to offer more horsepower. According to the company, the new V12 engine will deliver an awesome 770 horsepower which allows the car to accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in just 2.8 seconds. The top speed of the car is pegged at 217 miles per hour and these numbers easily indicate why it wouldn’t be allowed to be driven around the densely populated Hong Kong roads.
The Lamborghini Centenario is a collector’s edition model which will be extremely limited in numbers. The automobile manufacturer plans to build just 20 of the coupes and 20 of the Roadsters will be produced. Based on the statements made by the company, they don’t have any plans to further expand the numbers. For those in Hong Kong, China it is an opportunity to own one of the prestigious cars in the world and showcase it to their peer group.
