The Lamborghini Centenario is a hypercar, not a supercar. This car is so rare and so expensive having only made twenty units for the entire planet, each costing around $2,500,000 before options. The Lamborghini Centenario has a strong V12 engine that produces 760hp with a 0-60 time of 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 217mph. This car is rare and stunning, sometimes getting all the fame for it’s massive front and rear splitter. This car is amazing, here are a few cool facts about it.
The Lamborghini Centenario is the most powerful factory made Lamborghini in history. I say “factory made” because people have taken their stock Lamborghini’s and modified them to get as high as 1,300hp. When the Lamborghini Veneno came out, people were going crazy over it because of its power, when the Centenario came out, people were shocked. Literally everybody was freaking out, so as Lamborghini thought, they all sold out before even being officially released to the public.
Secondly, the Lamborghini Centenario was actually built in commemoration of the founder of Lamborghini, Ferrucio Lamborghini. If you are Italian, then you already know this, but if you are not, Centenario means 100 in Italian. Though Lamborghini has not been around for a hundred years; if Ferrucio Lamborghini were still alive, he would have been a hundred years old. This is how the car got his name.
The Lamborghini Centenario was supposedly modeled after the $400,000 Lamborghini Aventador (The Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4). Lamborghini engineers were instructed to make the most extravagant Aventador in honor of the creator. It has many similarities to the “average” Aventador including the doors, mirrors, and a vague resemblance in the shape of the hood. Also, when creating this car, the engineers wanted to see how Lamborghini owners would react to added advancements of technology in the infotainment system, so that they would feel more comfortable to add it when adding future Lamborghini models that are not limited edition.
Lastly, the massive front and rear splitters are not just for show, but actually help the car. It helps the car add over 100% downforce on top of the ready made downforce created by the retractable spoiler. Also, these front and rear spoilers are customizable in terms of what color you want them. Once everything you have specified and customized about your car is complete, Lamborghini makes a custom made scale model car to the exact specifications of your car. No one will ever get an original model, and a Centenario owner is the only one allowed to request for additional models of the same car.
The Lamborghini Centenario is an amazing and breath-taking car that is incredibly powerful as well as incredibly rare. Just one of these cars is capable of drawing all the attention to itself at an increasingly crowded car show. A fun fact that you may not have known about this car is that it has a blank button. That’s right, in a $2,500,000 car there is a blank button that does absolutely nothing, but the reason why this car is still special is because it is limited, and everybody wants what other people don’t have.
