Lamborghini Centenario will debut at the leading luxury automotive event, Salon Privé, on 1 to 3 September. The Lamborghini Centenario coupé will be on display during this spectacular three-day event at the renowned World Heritage site of Blenheim Palace. Previously showcased at the Geneva Motor Show, the Centenario is a one-off limited edition of 20 coupés and 20 roadsters. It is also the featured cover car of Forza Horizon 3, the ultimate racing game on any platform.
In Forza Horizon 3, players race and explore the rugged wonder of Australia with their friends in over 350 of the world’s greatest cars as they win millions of new fans and build the world’s greatest automotive festival. As the ‘new boss’ of the Horizon Festival, gamers can modify every aspect of race events, and how they get to the finish is up to them. Forza Horizon 3 is available worldwide on 27 September as an Xbox Play Anywhere title.
Built to honor the 100th birthday of company founder Ferruccio Lamborghini, this limited edition Lamborghini combines a lightweight carbon fiber tub and the most powerful V12 engine in the company’s history.
The Centenario demonstrates Lamborghini’s innovative design and engineering competencies. Using the V12 architecture, the Centenario’s naturally aspirated engine produces 770 hp and powers from 0-100 km/h in 2.8 seconds, and from 0-300 km/h in 23.5 seconds with a top speed of more than 350 km/h. Braking from 100 km/h to standstill is achieved in 30 meters. A monocoque and body in full carbon fiber provide a low weight of 1,520 kg and a weight to power ratio of just 1.97 kg/hp. With permanent four-wheel drive, the Centenario adopts a new Lamborghini rear-wheel steering system.
The Super car’s aerodynamic design includes an extending rear wing providing more downforce at high speeds. The introduction of rear-wheel steering provides increased agility and stability, and an innovative touchscreen provides connected infotainment, including internet browsing and CarPlay.
“The Centenario is a car that perfectly combines tradition and innovation. It looks to the future while honoring the legend that is Ferruccio Lamborghini,” said Automobili Lamborghini President and CEO Stephan Winkelmann. “The Centenario is an opportunity for our designers and engineers to transcend some of the constraints of series car production to achieve an incomparable result: the Centenario has immediately proved itself as a desirable collectors’ car, while demonstrating new Lamborghini technologies and outstanding performance.”
“It is the most fitting tribute to Ferruccio Lamborghini in his centenary year: a man who created an exceptional brand, believed that anything was possible, and produced extraordinary, iconic cars. The Centenario is a super sports car for Ferruccio Lamborghini and the future he and we believe in today,” he added.
