Lamborghini Centenario Is One Heck Of A Way To Celebrate Christmas 27

London has more than its fair share of supercars, but most, if not all, were eclipsed over the past weekend by a Lamborghini Centenario.

Shipped to England’s capital for the Lamborghini Christmas party, the extremely rare Centenario was parked outside a nightclub, where it caused quite a stir.

Built in just 40 examples (20 coupes and 20 roadsters) to commemorate Ferruccio Lamborghini’s 100th birthday, the Centenario was sold out even before the Italian automaker pulled the cover off its body last year, in the Geneva Auto Show, despite its eye-watering €1.75 million ($2,075,000) price tag.

The limited edition Lambo is based on the same platform as the Aventador and shares its 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12, which has been tuned to 770PS (760hp) and 690Nm (507lb-ft) of torque. Thus, it needs just 2.8sec for the 0-100km/h (0-62mph) sprint, and can reach a top speed in excess of 350km/h (217mph).

More impressively, the manufacturer claims that bringing the Centenario to a complete stop from 100km/h (62mph) takes just 30 meters (98.4ft).

Potential customers that missed their chance to buy a Centenario straight from the factory can still buy one if they’re willing to pay a premium, as various examples continue to end up on the “used” exotic car market. The last one we saw is still up for grabs at $3,475,000 and has only 47 miles (76km) on the odo…

There’s Something Delightfully Incongruous About A Base-Spec Exotic 26

Automakers are doing their best these days to make even their most basic, budget-friendly vehicles look polished. But there are some you can expect to see in base spec – mostly for professional use and deployment as part of large fleets.

We’re talking about work-a-day vehicles like the Ram Tradesman, for example, or the Opel Corsavan. But an exotic supercar? Perish the thought!

That’s precisely the delightful incongruity we’ve been seeing these lately, albeit only in the digital realm: six-figure supercars and even seven-figure hypercars stripped of their painted bumpers and flashy wheels, fitted instead with matte black noses and tails and plain old steel rims.

Of course, even if you could, ordering one that way wouldn’t put much of a dent in the purchase price of something as expensive as a Bugatti Chiron, Koenigsegg Agera, Pagani Huayra, or even something as relatively “affordable” as a Lamborghini Huracan, Aston Martin DB11, or Mercedes-AMG GT.

It’d ruin the handling too, and make your big-buck exotic look like it were in the middle of being repaired. So we’re thankful that none of these exist in reality, but it’s still funny to look at these curious renderings from Nikita Aksyonov and chuckle at the “what if” of it all.

Forza 7 Says Porsche 911 GT2 RS And Lambo Centenario Are Dead Even 4
Nov

Two of the most popular supercars in the world, the Lamborghini Centenario and the 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS couldn’t be more different.

On one hand, the GT2 RS is a rear-wheel drive and engined, with a twin-turbo 3.8-liter flat six unit, pumping out 700 PS (690 HP). The Centenario, on the other hand features, all-wheel drive and a 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 placed in the center that’s good for 770 PS (760 HP).

In a straight line, both cars will get from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.8 seconds, although it’s the Centenario that will max out at 350 km/h (217 mph), as the GT2 RS will “only” do 340 km/h (211 mph).

If you want to talk differences, the price gap between the two is huge, since it’s doubtful that any GT2 RS will ever sell for $2 million.

Of course, we’d love a real life comparison, but what we have here is an interesting virtual drag race, courtesy of Forza 7. In the gaming it world, it would seem that they’re extremely well matched in a straight line.
