April 26th, 2016 would’ve marked Ferrucio Lamborghini’s 100th birthday, and to celebrate its illustrious founder, the Italian car manufacturer decided to unwrap an early gift, with the mental Lamborghini Centenario.
Like previous limited edition Lambos, the Centenario will be available only to a select few, as the VW Group-owned company plans to build just 40 units in total. Its design is unlike anything Lamborghini currently offers, and the entire car is built and based around the Avendator SV’s carbon fiber monocoque.
The naturally aspirated V12 is also borrowed from Lamborghini’s flagship, although upgraded to produce no less than 770PS. An adequate power figure, to say the least, complemented by a lightweight, 1.5-ton body that adds up to a power-to-weight-ratio of just 1.97kg/hp.
Wider and taller than the Aventador, the Centenario includes an extending rear wing that provides more downforce at high speeds. The aerodynamics were thoroughly and carefully enhanced with air scoops and diffusers as well.
The interior, although familiar, can be commissioned to a unique specification and it includes carbon fiber seats, new stitching, a new steering wheel and different carbon inner door panels.
The price of owning such a marvelous car? $1.9 million, but the al fresco variant could go for a tad more.
