This, to our knowledge, is the first time we get to see the wonderfully weird Lamborghini Centenario out in the wild after the car’s debut at the Geneva Motor Show. Mind you, Sant’Agata does not really count as “wild” since it’s the location of Lambo’s factory.
Still, it is cool to see Lamborghini Centenario under the natural light of the sun and not the deceiving rays of strategically placed projectors at a motor show. The car looks less shiny here, but make no mistake, just as insane. The unique design of front and rear bumpers combined with the gunmetal grey paint job, yellow accents, and carbon wheels, grabs hold of every eight-year-old boy’s imagination and wouldn’t let go.
And it’s not just the real eight-year-olds we’re talking about, but grown men with the mental age of an eight-year-old. Forty of them with a sufficiently fat bank account will be able to buy this thing as Lambo is making 20 coupe and 20 roadsters. They will all be powered by 770 hp version of Aventador’s V12 and do 0-100 km/h in 2.8 seconds, and 0-300 km/h in 23.5 seconds, with a top speed of more than 350 km/h.
“The Centenario is a car that perfectly combines tradition and innovation. It looks to the future while honouring the legend that is Ferruccio Lamborghini,” said the outgoing Automobili Lamborghini President and CEO Stephan Winkelman
“The Centenario is an opportunity for our designers and engineers to transcend some of the constraints of series car production to achieve an incomparable result: the Centenario has immediately proved itself as a desirable collectors’ car, while demonstrating new Lamborghini technologies and outstanding performance.
It is the most fitting tribute to Ferruccio Lamborghini in his centenary year: a man who created an exceptional brand, believed that anything was possible, and produced extraordinary, iconic cars. The Centenario is a super sports car for Ferruccio Lamborghini and the future he and we believe in today.”
