This year marks Ferruccio Lamborghini’s 100th birthday and to commemorate its creator’s centennial as we reported earlier, Lamborghini is producing the Centenario supercar. Presented at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, the automobile can 0-100 km/h in 2.8 seconds and just 40 will be made.
There will be 20 coupe-style bodies and 20 roadster variations of the Lamborghini Centenario, and all 40 automobiles have actually already been bought by excited clients around the world … at a cost of 1.75 million Euros (US$ 1.3 M). Not consisting of tax.
Based around Lamborghini’s huge V12 architecture, the Centenario has a 770 horse power (566 kW) output with a 0-100 km/h (0-62 miles per hour) time of simply 2.8 seconds and a 0-300 km/h (0-186 miles per hour) of just 23.5 seconds. Leading speed is over 350 km/h (217 miles per hour). The Lamborghini Centenario weighs simply 1,520 kg, offering it a weight to power ratio of 1.97 kg/hp (3,351 pound, 4.4 lbs/hp). The engine is naturally aspirated and restricted to 8,600 rpm. This is the most effective engine Lamborghini’s produced to-date. The vehicle’s overall length is 4.924 m (16.2 feet) and it sits 1.143 m (3.75 feet) high.
The Lamborghini Centenario is currently on display at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.
