Lamborghini’s Most Powerful Car Ever

An aerodynamic, 770 horsepower birthday present to Ferruccio Lamborghini.

To celebrate Ferruccio Lamborghini’s Super Sweet Centenario (100th birthday), the company that bears his name has unveiled the Lamborghini Centenario, an ultra-expensive, limited-edition hypercar based on the company’s already ludicrous Aventador. It takes the madness of Lamborghini’s flagship supercar and makes everything a little more crazy — the looks, the power and the aerodynamics are all a showcase of what Sant’Agata can really do. Ferruccio would be proud.

Using the brand’s naturally aspirated V12 engine as a base, it has been tuned to a whopping 770 horsepower, about 70 more than the Aventador and the largest power output of any production Lamborghini ever made. Weighing only a light 3,351 pounds, the Centenario is capable of a 0-60 sprint in 2.8 seconds, and will continue to a top speed of 217 mph. That power is put down to all four wheels, but in addition to Lamborghini’s AWD system the Centenario will also feature a new four-wheel steering system. Working in tandem with the drive system to keep the car stuck to the road are a host of new aerodynamic additions, including a front splitter, side skirts, large side vents and a massive rear diffuser.

Only 40 examples of the Centenario — 20 coupes and 20 roadsters — will be built, and unfortunately for those willing to cough up the $1.9 million asking price, they’ve all been sold.
