One of 20 coupes to ever be made, the Centenario is like an Aventador on a heavy dose of steroids.
Big cities such as Paris and London are like permanent car shows since there are plenty of exotic and super rare vehicles roaming the streets at any given time of the day. That makes it harder for someone with a new set of wheels to stand out from the crowd taking into account some of the world’s richest people are parading with their high-end cars to the delight of bystanders. Someone with clearly very deep pockets did manage to find a solution to this first world problem by acquiring one of the only 20 Centenario coupes Lamborghini is putting together.
Based on the Aventador, but fitted with a look-at-me extravagant body, the Centenario was unveiled a little over a year ago as a sold-out special edition to celebrate 100 years since the birth of company founder Ferruccio Elio Arturo Lamborghini. The racy body with a beefy front splitter, massive side skirts, and a gargantuan rear diffuser makes the hardcore coupe an eye-grabber, prompting many people to take photos and record videos of this white example. It’s one of the first cars to be delivered by Lamborghini and as you can see it has a rather interesting and devilish license plate: “666666.”
Aside from receiving an outrageous body dipped in carbon fibre, the Centenario is also blessed with an upgraded version of the naturally aspirated 6.5-litre V12 engine. It pumps out a meaty 770 horsepower, so it’s 70 hp more powerful than the regular Aventador upon which it’s based. Not only that, but it’s actually got more oomph than the recently introduced Aventador S with its 740 hp. All three of them have the exact same torque figure of 507 pound-feet of torque.
Lamborghini is also making 20 units of the Centenario Roadster, and it goes without saying that all of them have already been sold despite an eye-watering $2.4 million USD sticker.
