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.
