Lamborghini reveal the Centenario Roadster

Lamborghini has unveiled the new open-top version of the Centenario at the Monterey Car Week Quail event. The Centenario Roaster and Coupe were released to honour 100 years since the birth of the company’s iconic founder, Ferruccio Lamborghini.

The Coupe version was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, and now the second celebratory model has been unwrapped at Pebble Beach Concours. The Roadster and its sibling are based on an Aventador SV, but receive a host of special additions and tweaks, including more power.

The Centenario Roadster is powered by a naturally-aspirated V12 6.5-litre engine, producing an increased 759bhp and 8600 rpm. The convertible’s engine drives power to all four wheels and delivers 0-62mph in a mere 2.9 seconds, hitting a top speed of 217mph.

The Centenario has impressive performance statistics, partly due to remaining light in weight (1570kg). The open-top’s bodywork and monocoque are made entirely of carbonfibre. The car’s aerodynamic package consists of glossy carbonfibre parts, including a large rear diffuser and an extending rear wing.

The Roadster sits on 20-inch bespoke rims at the front and 21-inch at the rear, fitted with Pirelli PZone tyres. The car has heightened agility, employing rear-wheel steering and carbon ceramic brakes. The supercar has three driving modes Strasa, Sport or Corsa, as well as dynamic steering and Magnetorheological dampers.

Lamborghini have given the Centenario advanced technology, including a new state of the art infotainment system featuring at 10.1 inch touchscreen display. The system features Apple CarPlay, hot-spot connectivity and internet browsing, as well as telemetry functions.

Only 20 examples of the £2.07 million Centenario Roadster will be produced by Lamborghini.
