Lamborghini Centenario Is One Heck Of A Way To Celebrate Christmas

London has more than its fair share of supercars, but most, if not all, were eclipsed over the past weekend by a Lamborghini Centenario.

Shipped to England’s capital for the Lamborghini Christmas party, the extremely rare Centenario was parked outside a nightclub, where it caused quite a stir.

Built in just 40 examples (20 coupes and 20 roadsters) to commemorate Ferruccio Lamborghini’s 100th birthday, the Centenario was sold out even before the Italian automaker pulled the cover off its body last year, in the Geneva Auto Show, despite its eye-watering €1.75 million ($2,075,000) price tag.

The limited edition Lambo is based on the same platform as the Aventador and shares its 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12, which has been tuned to 770PS (760hp) and 690Nm (507lb-ft) of torque. Thus, it needs just 2.8sec for the 0-100km/h (0-62mph) sprint, and can reach a top speed in excess of 350km/h (217mph).

More impressively, the manufacturer claims that bringing the Centenario to a complete stop from 100km/h (62mph) takes just 30 meters (98.4ft).

Potential customers that missed their chance to buy a Centenario straight from the factory can still buy one if they’re willing to pay a premium, as various examples continue to end up on the “used” exotic car market. The last one we saw is still up for grabs at $3,475,000 and has only 47 miles (76km) on the odo…
