Lamborghini Centenario makes North American debut
The Lamborghini all carbon fibre Centenario will be produced in 20 Coupes and 20 Roadsters, all of which are already sold. Naturally, it will go 0-60 mph in only 2.7 seconds toward a top speed in excess of 217 mph.
Automobili Lamborghini and a group of VIP clients gathered at the Petersen Automotive Museum recently for a private viewing of the Lamborghini Centenario, the company’s newest one-off supercar.
The evening’s event marked the first time that the Centenario was on display to clients since its debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.
The Petersen Automotive Museum provided the perfect backdrop to highlight Lamborghini’s iconic heritage with an exciting nod to its fast tracking future.

The Centenario features an all-carbon-fibre body available in either an exposed or painted finish showcasing the perfect attention to detail Lamborghinis are known for. With its body panels exposed, the beauty of Lamborghini’s carbon fiber mastery is undeniable.
Each intersection of the woven material catches light at a slightly different angle, setting the car off with an incredible degree of visual depth.
Over the course of its production, a total of 20 coupes and 20 roadsters will be delivered to clients. In addition to breaking new ground in body styling and material composition for the brand, this car is also the first Lamborghini to use all-wheel steering to enhance agility at low speeds and offer improved stability at high speeds.
The rear wheels are able to turn in the opposite direction of the front axle to create a virtual reduction in the wheelbase or to rotate with the front wheels for the opposite effect.
The Centenario takes performance to a new level.
Its dry weight is only 3,351 lb, yet it houses the most powerful engine in Lamborghini history.
The 6.5-litre naturally aspirated V12 creates 770 horsepower capable of propelling the car from 0-60 mph in only 2.7 seconds toward a top speed in excess of 217 mph.
Further adding to the car’s performance credentials, it is also fitted with Lamborghini’s dynamic steering system to offer an especially quick turn-in feel to the driver while maintaining a sense of control.
