Unboxing A Lamborghini Centenario Roadster Is As Cool As It Sounds

Christmas came early for one lucky guy in the States, as he took delivery of the world’s first Lamborghini Centenario Roadster.

Shipped just last month, the supercar arrived in a giant crate, meant to keep its body safe from any unwanted scratches, with a video posted recently on YouTube revealing the unboxing process.

Unveiled last year and shown to the public in Geneva, the Lamborghini Centenario pays tribute to Ferruccio’s 100th birthday, and uses the Aventador as a starting point. However, it sets itself apart with a unique body that was made from carbon fiber, helping it tip the scales at 3,351lbs (1,520kg).

Being based on Sant’Agata Bolognese’s finest supercar means that the Centenario uses the same 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine, which was massaged to deliver 760hp (770PS) and 507lb-ft (690Nm) of torque to all four corners, through a 7-speed automatic gearbox. Sprinting from naught to 62mph (100km/h) takes just 2.8 seconds, and top speed stands at more than 217mph (350km/h).

Lamborghini will only make 40 units of the exotic machine, 20 coupes and 20 roadster, but buying one straight from the factory is impossible, as all of them have been spoken for. Prices for the Centenario sit at almost $2 million (€1.75 million).

    If they don’t keep the wooden crate it will lose points when being judged at pebble beach.

      They should leave it in there, then in 20 years sell it on eBay as MIB.

    Those are some fugly chrome wheels!!!!

    Great color combo! I think the chrome rims actually work, although black with some yellow stripes would be best I think!

    I could think of better ways to spend $2 million on a car or on several cars. This just looks like a Lamborghini with the added pimp package. It’s going to end up hardly being seen, and either being sold from person to person for profit, or end up in some collection where no one will ever see it except on special occasions. Truth is if I had the money to buy this, even for a car collection, this wouldn’t be up there on my priority list. To me, it looks like something that would come out of the SEMA Las Vegas car show.

    I love the guy holding the corner of the crate, juuust in case it falls he’s there to catch it. :p)

    Car will probably never be driven….

    It’s ‘opening’ a box. ‘Unboxing’ is not a word.

    A car of that caliber deserves some carbon fiber wheels.
