The Lamborghini Centenario is powered a tweaked version of the 6.5-litre V12 found in the Aventador. The engine produces 759bhp which gives the Centenario a power to weight ratio of 499bhp/tonne.

The Centenario races to 100km/h from standstill in 2.8 seconds and can reach 300km/h in just 23.5 seconds. Top speed is north of 350km/h.

Lamborghini has used carbon-ceramic brakes that it claims can bring the Centenario to a halt from 300km/h in 290meters. The front and rear wheels which are 20 and 21 inches in diameter respectively are shod in Pirelli P Zero rubber. 


Style wise, the Centenario takes the Aventador's design to the extreme. The nose is lower to the ground and there is large front splitter which looks like something out of Mad Max. Also present are multiple air intakes. The headlamps are borrowed from the Huracan.

The six-slat rear diffusor is another crazy one and stretches from the car's underside to the taillamps which look quite similar to the ones found on the Asterion concept.


Lamborghini will make only 40 examples of the Centenario, with 20 coupes and 20 convertibles. Unfortunately for anyone looking to get their hands on the mad Lambo, the Centenario is already sold out.
