Built to celebrate Ferruccio Lamborghini's 100th, the Centenario is one rare bull.
A universal consensus is hard to come by, but ten out of ten experts agree that a naturally aspirated V12 is the best sort of engine ever conceived, and it's only made better when draped in luscious, exposed carbon-fiber bodywork. That's why you owe it to yourself to check out this super-rare 2017 Lamborghini Centenario.
Now, strictly speaking, the Centenario's V12 is essentially the same as you'd get with any old Lamborghini Aventador: a high-revving, 6.5L unit that sounds approximately like the voice of God, if God were very, very irate at something. But in the Centenario, it's tuned to make 759 peak horsepower - nearly 30 more than the current Aventador S, and about 70 more than the original Aventador.
The Centenario is also far more exclusive than the Aventador, with just 40 examples produced for the entire world: 20 coupes, and 20 convertibles. This particular convertible has covered just 594 kilometers since new - 369 miles - which is less than the recommended break-in period on most production internal combustion engines. Its exposed carbon-fiber bodywork was an optional extra that cost as much as a new Lamborghini Huracan itself at the time of purchase: $300,000.
Would you expect any less from a car developed for the express purpose of celebrating what would have been Ferruccio Lamborghini's hundredth birthday?
What price glory? This stellar, low-mileage Lamborghini Centenario is listed for $3,700,000 Canadian with Grand Touring Automobiles - the Toronto dealership handling the sale - and is priced at $2,688,888 USD with duPont registry. That's roundabout what the Centenario cost brand new, but given the exposed carbon-fiber bodywork and the low mileage, we dare say it's almost a steal.
Plus, with emissions regulations getting ever-more stringent year after year around the globe, exclusive supercars like the Centenario are increasingly going hybrid, if not pure-electric. If you have the means, we highly recommend picking this V12-powered beast up.
