Automobili Lamborghini America delivered the first example of the groundbreaking Centenario Roadster in Beverly Hills, California. The open-top supercar is one of only 20 roadster versions of the 770-horsepower Centenario that will be produced, and marks the first worldwide delivery of the Centenario Roadster.
The Cententario is designed in honor of the 100-year anniversary of founder Ferruccio Lamborghini’s birth, and the car represents The House of the Raging Bull’s commitment to innovative technology and inspirational design in limited-edition form. The Centenario continues Lamborghini’s strategy of producing one of a kind vehicles of extraordinary value that are truly unique to its owner.
“This is a very significant vehicle, not only for the Lamborghini brand, but for overall innovation in the super car industry,” said Alessandro Farmeschi, Chief Operating Officer, Automobili Lamborghini America, LLC. “Being at the forefront of carbon fiber advancement, the Centenario is a rare production supercar with full carbon fiber monocoque and body providing aerodynamic superiority.”
The first Centenario Roadster is well suited in California; custom-built with a yellow-accented, glossy carbon fiber exterior. Silver wheels with black brake calipers create a striking presence when in motion or at a standstill, and the interior follows a matching color scheme with black Nero Ade leather and Alcantara highlighted with yellow piping and stitching embroidered on the steering wheel and cabin seats.
Lamborghini’s Ad Personam program makes it possible to create a completely bespoke masterpiece. The Centenario Roadster has a top speed of more than 217 mph, and can go from 0-62 mph in an exhilarating 2.9 seconds.
All 40 of the V12 supercars, which include 20 Roadsters and 20 Coupes, have already been sold at a starting price of 1.75 Million Euros.
