The Lamborghini Centenario is based on the Aventador but it is 55 kgs lighter which makes it capable of doing the 0-100 km/hr sprint in 2.8 seconds and 300 km/hr is achieved in 23.5 seconds.
Celebrating Ferruccio Lamborghini’s 100th birthday, the automaker has revealed the Centenario at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. Looking at the 770 HP birthday present, Mr. Lamborghini will be happier than he has ever been in his living life! The hypercar is based on the flagship Aventador.
The Lamborghini Centenario is powered by a 6.5-litre V12 naturally-aspirated engine that produces 770 HP and 689 Nm of torque while mated to a 7-speed ISR gearbox and the power is sent to all-four wheels via a Haldex all-wheel drive system.
The Lamborghini Centenario is 55 kgs lighter than the Aventador due to the extensive use of carbon fibre in the monocoque chassis, body panels and trims while it is also 144 mm longer and 7 mm taller. Aerodynamics are taken care of by large air scoops on the hood and roof while the rear has large diffusers and the rear wing is extended for better downforce.
When we take all these in an equation, we get a Lambo that is capable of reaching 100 km/hr from a halt in 2.8 seconds while 300 km/hr turns up in 23.5 seconds and the top speed exceeds 350 km/hr. But nothing to be excited about as all the 40 models including 20 coupes and 20 roadsters are already sold at a price of $1.9 million (Rs. 12.85 crores).
