Sant’Agata Bolognese/Geneva, 1 March 2016 – Automobili Lamborghini presents the Lamborghini Centenario at Geneva Motor Show, in the year the company celebrates the centenary of founder Ferruccio Lamborghini’s birth. Only 20 coupé and 20 roadster versions of the Centenario will be produced and all 40 cars are already sold, at a start price of 1.9 million dollars plus tax.
The Centenario continues Lamborghini’s one-off strategy and demonstrates Lamborghini’s innovative design and engineering competencies. Using the V12 architecture, the Centenario’s naturally aspirated engine produces 770 hp and powers from 0-60 mph in 2.7 seconds, and from 0-186 mph in 23.5 seconds with a top speed of more than 217 mph. Braking from 62 mph to standstill is achieved in 98 ft. A monocoque and body in full carbon fiber provide a low weight of 3,351 lbs and a weight to power ratio of just 4.3lbs/hp.
The car’s aerodynamic design includes an extending rear wing providing more downforce at high speeds. The introduction of rear-wheel steering provides increased agility and stability, and an innovative touchscreen provides connected infotainment, including internet browsing and Apple CarPlay.
