We all know that Lamborghini has been producing torched supercars but Lamborghini Centenario Roadster is game-changing in its production line. With only twenty units produced, Centenario Roadster has become one of the rarest limited-edition supercars in the world.
As expected, it’s also one of the most expensive as well. A Centenario Roadster was offered from $2.2 million to $2.7million while the current price could even be higher as it’s definitely a collector’s item.
The Lamborghini Centenario is surprisingly an elevated version of the famous Aventador. Centenario comes in two versions including coupe and roadster with 20 units each ever produced between 2016-2017. The super limited-edition Centenario was produced to celebrate Ferrucio Lamborghini’s 100th, the auto company’s founder.
That explains why Centenario isn’t only aesthetically special but it’s also featured with notorious specs.
Lamborghini Centenario Roadster Specs
Centenario Roadster was an epic wrap of Lamborghini’s new progressive aerodynamic, technologies, and advancements. It’s the first Lambo to have a fully functioning rear-wheel steering system while it’s carrying Aventador’s 6500cc V12 engine.
Don’t get it wrong, Centenario Roadster’s output is elevated to 770 hp while Aventador was at 700 hp that every rider would see the difference. The torque is secured at 507 lb-ft where a Centenario can go from 0 to 60 mph within 2.7 seconds. This infrastructure allows you to ride this masterpiece for up to 217 mph on the road.
Nascent utility and infotainment are also featured in Centenario Roadster. These include high-tech connectivity, large display, telemetry analysis, satellite navigation, and so forth. This ambitious tech project is featured in Lamborghini’s current productions.
These allow driver to have a complete driving experience, something that’s usually absent in a car that runs more than 200 mph.
While they’re both limited editions, Centenario Roadster was more expensive than the coupe version with the gap of $300,000. The production only ran for one year and all Centenario Roadsters were sold out to selected Lamborghini customers in a very short time.
What Make Centenario Roadster So Special
We’ve talked about the breathtaking performance of the Centenario’s engine but it’s not only the aspects that make it important. These 20 roadsters were built with a base carbon-fiber for their body which is super expensive. Can you imagine that the body itself was 300 grand? That’s the actual price, not your imagination. Not only expensive, but this structure allows Centenario Roadster to have very lightweight.
Centenario is actually one of Lamborghini’s most powerful convertibles on paper. That’s why the manufacturer also put the carbon-ceramic brakes that allow responsive, short-distance full stop. Speaking of the interior, the limited supercar at that price range isn’t surprisingly stitched with premium material Alcantara in two-tone black and red. Specialty infotainment, digitized interface, and all premium interior elements are already there.
The commemoration supercar definitely spoils every Lamborghini die-hard fan and collector. The rarity is the strong element of this car production but Centenario Roadster is more than just rare, it’s definitely changed the way many Lamborghini fans think about the company’s product. The auto company put all of its advancements into this production. These even elevate the sentimental values of the limited-edition supercar.
Centenario is also Lamborghini’s first supercar to employ a rear-wheel steering system with all of the notorious specs mentioned. It’s not an experimental but completely measured adoption that’s made by the auto company. With such a powerful V12 and lightweight carbon body, the rear-wheel steering system gives the ability to maneuver sharp turns.
On the other hand, the driver can also obtain great control of the car. As you might have known, control is one of the supercar’s major issues and Lamborghini has the solution in the limited Centenario. The twin-plane front splitter is also installed in the Centenario construction allowing its nose attached to the road even at high speed.
All Centenario Roadsters have been sold out so you won’t find it in any dealer or official offer. Even if you can find owners selling their Roadster, don’t be surprised if the price is even higher than when it’s sold in 2016 – 2017. The mint-condition Roadster was even offered at $3.69 million that makes it one of the most expensive cars in the world.
