Lamborghini Celebrates Founder With 770 Horsepower Monster


The latest raging bull is carbon fiber perfection!

We've known that Lamborghini was planning something special to celebrate founder Ferruccio's 100th birthday. Well it is here and the stats are all too good. Tipping the scales at just 3,351-lbs, the all-wheel-drive, 6.5-liter V12 Centenario packs 770 horsepower. That equates to a power-to-weight ratio of 1.97 kg/ horsepower. 0-60 is achieved in a neck snapping 2.8 seconds, 0-186 mph takes just 23.5 seconds and Lamborghini estimates the new flagship will hit a top speed well over 217 mph.

The body and monocoque are made entirely from carbon fiber. A rear-wheel steering system will help keep the raging bull in check while substantial aerodynamics including an extending rear spoiler keeps the bull planted to the tarmac. Inside, the Centenario comes with a 10.1-inch touchscreen display with support from Apple CarPlay and online connectivity. Two onboard cameras record all the on-track antics, while the infotainment system has built-in telemetry software should the owner be inclined for a track day. On track, it would appear, is the Centenario's preferred arena. The trunk up front features a space designed to feature two racing helmets should you want to terrify a friend.
