The covers have been taken from the Lamborghini Centenario here at the Geneva Motor Show 2016 to a rapturous reception. The special edition Lamborghini is one of the Italian company’s most extreme creations yet. We took a closer look at the car on the show floor.
The Lamborghini Centenario pays homage to Lamborghini’s founder, Ferrucio Lamborghini on the 100th anniversary of his birth. It is the most powerful Lamborghini to date with a naturally aspirated V12 engine pushing 770 hp. Performance is similarly impressive with 0 to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds, 0 to 300 km/h in 23.5 seconds and a top speed in excess of 350 km/h.
Lamborghini have fitted the Centenario with rear wheel steering, all wheel drive and a new carbon fibre monocoque. The body is fully carbon fibre and the Centenario is packed with full of technology. In spite of this, the Lamborghini weighs in at just 1,520 kg with a power to weight ratio of 1.97 kg/hp. Torsional stiffness is 35,000 Nm per degree.
The Centenario is based upon the Lamborghini Aventador platform, yet measures slightly longer. Although the show car is an entirely carbon fiber finish, clients can specify their Centenario in exposed carbon fiber or any colour and finish from Lamborghini’s Ad Personam personalisation programme.
