A small gathering witnessed the debut of the amazing Lamborghini Centenario in Los Angeles. The event was held at the Petersen Automotive Museum, and the press and some existing Lamborghini owners were present.
Lamborghini have stated that they will only produce 20 roadster versions and 20 coupes, and if you are looking for a new Lamborghini for sale you are out of luck, because all 40 have been sold already. The Centenario was first unveiled at the Auto Show in Geneva, and it has been released to celebrate Ferrucio Lamborghini’s 100th birthday.
Partnership With Microsoft Studios
At the American event were the COO of Lamborghini America, Alessandro Farmeschi, and the head of Turn Studios, Alan Hartman. Farmeschi said that that the Centenario was the most powerful car the company had ever built, and talked about the history of the famous car company. Turn 10 Studios is a sub division of Microsoft Studios, who produce the Forza Motorsport game which is very popular.
Very Aggressive Lines
The Centenario has very aggressive lines, and the small audience in Los Angeles were drawn to this. The car has large spoilers, fins, intakes and splitters, which are all designed to make the Centenario more stable when it is travelling at high speed.
If you liked the lines of the Aventador and Huracan, then you will absolutely love the Centenario. It has a body in black, with subtle yellow accents, which make it look really striking.
The front of the car has a really unique look. It has flying buttresses at the front, and a facia that houses the thin headlights and LED strips. The back is just as aggressive, with the three exhaust outlets being flanked with six fins, and an LED strip which covers the back end. If you look inside the split rear windows you can see the impressive engine which is exposed.
The car is very low and wide, which lovers of Lamborghinis have come to expect. This look is accentuated by the aero kit which includes a front splitter, and side skirts that have been mounted low on the car.
The Most Powerful Lamborghini Ever
Weighing in at just 3351 pounds, the Centenario is constructed entirely of carbon fiber. The underpinnings of the car are almost identical to that of the Aventador. The Centenario is powered by a 6.5 liter, V12 engine, which produces a staggering 759 hp.
This power is channelled to all 4 wheels, which is the norm with Lamborghini cars. The only option available for transmission is an Independent Shifting Rod (ISR) power train, and this engine and transmission combination have made the Centenario the most powerful Lamborghini ever produced.
Lamborghini claim that the Centenario will propel you to 62 miles an hour in just 2.8 seconds. If that was not enough, with the throttle held down you can be doing 186 MPH in only 23.5 seconds. The redline of the car has been raised by 100 revs per minute more than previous models.
There is a new rear wheel steering system that reduces the turning circle, and improves handling at high speeds. You can drive the Centenario in Strada, Sport or Corsa drive modes. Each of these will have an impact on the steering, stability control and the behavior of the power train.
What About Inside The Car?
The cabin is trimmed in Alcantara throughout, and there is a 10 inch touch screen in the center stack that will assist with navigation. Apple CarPlay is also included. The interior is pure luxury and exclusivity, but the company has stated that if owners want to change the interior design of the Centenario they will be able to do that. This applies to the exterior design as well.
You will find the start / stop switch and the multimedia controls just below the touch screen. There is WiFi connectivity in the car, and there is even a data recorder which will measure lap times, g forces and speeds when you are on the track. The interior is best described as having a "fighter jet" theme.
Lamborghini Centenario For Sale For Only $1.9 Million
When the car was unveiled, everyone wanted to know the Lamborghini Centenario price. The response was €1.75 million, which at today’s exchange rate is around $1.9 million. If you wanted to change the interior and exterior, then you would have had to bring nearer $2 million with you.
