Fans of the Raging Bull recently celebrated the birthday of Mr. Lamborghini. It is doubtful that anyone will ever surpass his determination to build the world’s greatest cars. Literally inventing the supercar, he threw caution to the wind and left the entire automotive industry speechless. He would have been 100 years old in 2016, so his company decided to build him a birthday present.
Using the latest in carbon fiber, aerodynamics, and technology, the Centenario was unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show as a preview of where the brand was heading. It was their first car with rear steering, a Human-Machine Interface, and 500 lbs of downforce. Pushing the limits of naturally aspirated engines, the 6.5-liter V12 offers 770 horsepower and 509 lb-ft of torque. It is what he would have wanted, in every way possible.
Only offered to Lamborghini VIP’s the owner spared no expense. This car was ordered in bare carbon fiber, adding $300,000 to the window sticker. The 2-tone Red/Black Alcantara interior shows no signs of wear, as this car is practically brand new. Having only 594 km (369 miles) on the odometer, the engine is not even broken in.
Only 20 coupes and 20 roadsters were built, and because of the limited run, the development costs per unit exceeded the vehicle MSRP translating to a truly exceptional value proposition on this limited vehicle. This roadster resides north of the border, and the US to Canada Exchange Ratio is very much in your favor. This collector’s item deserves to be the centerpiece of your collection, otherwise, you will have 96 years to wait for his 200th birthday. Strike while the iron is hot because it doesn’t get any hotter than this!
