Lamborghini’s Limited Edition Centenario

To mark the centenary of Ferruccio Lamborghini’s birth, a new carbon fibre limited-run supercar has been unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show.

The Centenario features a range tweaks and upgrades, all wrapped in a bespoke composite body. Only 40 examples of the birthday edition will be made, 20 coupes and 20 roadsters.

It is powered by a mid-mounted 6.5 litre naturally-aspirated V12 engine, delivering 760bhp to all four wheels through a seven-speed manual gearbox. The new Lamborghini sprints from 0-62mph in 2.8 seconds and has a quoted top speed of over 217mph.

The Centenario’s body and monocoque chassis is made from carbon fibre, giving it a kerb weight of 1520Kg. The front splitter, side skirts, rear diffuser and wheel arches are finished in matt carbon. There is a 150mm extendable rear wing for high performance conditions, three driving modes and new rear-wheel-steering has been added.

The cabin receives carbon fibre sport seats and panels, trackday telemetry and a 10inch high definition touchscreen with Apple Carplay. In terms of styling, Trim can be personalised to the buyers’ specifications.

The special edition Lamborghini Centenario costs a cool €1.75 million.
