Even if you had an extra couple million lying around, the chances of being able to get your hands on the latest crown jewel to come out of Sant’Agata Bolognese would be nearly impossible. All of these cars were sold before the first exotic left the factory. Keeping in tradition with the sales requirements of previous limited edition models, potential buyers must have previously purchased a specified amount of Lamborghini’s in the past. The Lamborghini Centenario was offered to an elite group of buyers who have proven to be the most loyal customers of the brand. Unlike in the past, these examples have been distributed evenly around the globe. CEO of Lamborghini, Stephan Winkelmann recently explains how the supercar was sent to buyers. “They were all sold, they were equally distributed across North America, some in Europe, the Middle East is covered and also the Asian side of this world.”
Even with very aggressive styling cues, it is easy to see that the Lamborghini Centenario has Aventador-based roots. While maintaining the overall size and shape of the stock Aventador, the Centenario displays lines and elements that are more advanced that what is normally found on concept cars. One of the most notable examples of this is the massive rear diffuser that extends all the way to the taillights. The other main item that separates the Centenario from previous limited edition models of the Aventador definitely has to be the amount of carbon fiber that is found on this car. The Centenario boasts carbon fiber doors, sills, fenders, hood and roof that help to reduce the weight of the vehicle by 50lbs over the Aventador SV.
When it comes to power and speed, the Lamborghini Centenario definitely delivers. The naturally aspirated V12 powerplant produces 770 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. The Centenario is also capable of achieving a top speed of 217 mph and zero to 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds. Those that were lucky enough to get their hands on the Centenario had to make the difficult choice of choosing between the 20 roadsters and 20 coupes that were made.
