Lamborghini unveiled the open air version of the latest one-off creation to fervent collectors and enthusiasts at Monterey Car Week in California. A performance driven model, this one-off open-top model is built on a carbon fiber monocoque frame with bodywork also in carbon fiber. The highly responsive V12 engine delivers 770 hp (566 kW) with maximum engine revs increased from 8.350 to 8.600 rpm.
Accelerating from 0-100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds the Centenario Roadster’s top speed is more than 350 km/h. Braking distance is equally impressive: from 100-0 km/h in just 31 m. The Centenario Roadster adopts Lamborghini new rear wheel steering. This system increases turning agility at low speed while increasing stability at high speed.
Lamborghini continues to honor the centenary of its dynamic founder, Ferruccio, with this special commemorative series. Designers were given the freedom to create an open design that embodies the progressive qualities of Lamborghini’s visionary founder and shines in an elegant environment.
This next level Roadster embodies a new design direction for Lamborghini accentuated by clean surfaces as ‘form follows function’ – true to Lamborghini’s core design DNA. Centenario’s silhouette features low overhangs in the front and rear creating a clean, sensuous, mono-body shape.
Known for experimenting with new cutting edge colors, designers at Centro Stile Lamborghini developed a special exterior silver color, called “Argento Centenario”, fashioned exclusively for the Centenario Roadster. To achieve this signature matte finish, designers applied a new high-tech process dissolving the metal while diluting and diminishing the appearance of the metal grain giving it a silky and rich exterior finish.
Lamborghini just unveiled the Roadster version of the most powerful car it has ever built.
