Lamborghini Centenario has finally been unleashed on the track [w/video]

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 30, 2016

The Lamborghini Centenario is a limited edition masterpiece from one of the most celebrated automakers of all time. This supercar was mainly created to commemorate the 100th birthday of Lamborghini’s founder, Mr. Ferruccio Lamborghini, and was first introduced to the public at the Geneva Motor Show in March of this year.

Only forty units have been produced for this stunning Lambo, twenty of which are coupes and the other half, roadsters. All of which have already been sold out amounting to at least $1.9 million each. It’s sad news for everyone of us who will not get to drive these forty bad boys but on a lighter note, thanks to technology, we’ll at least have a glimpse of its potential.

A few months back, a video was shared over the internet featuring the elusive special Lambo. The said Centenario was seen up and about the streets outside of the Lamborghini factory in Sant’Agata in Bolognese, Italy. Although its full capability was not shown in the video (that is, just the normal driving conditions in public roads), we get a little teaser of the 6.2-liter V12’s hum.

Just that and nothing more, people wanted to see the beast unleash its full power. And what better way to see it in beastmode than to release the Kraken in the only habitat where it can go full on – the race track. That’s right. Just recently, Lamborghini heeded to the pleas of many to see the Centenario on full battle mode out in the race tracks.

Releasing 759 horsepower from its V12 engine, the Lamborghini Centenario was unleashed into the Nardo Ring in Italy and was finally able to stretch out its “limbs”. The Nardo Ring is a high-speed test track owned by Porsche and is well-known for its 7.8-mile high-speed course north-west of the town of Nardo. Now the video features the special edition Lambo showing off its agility and power with off-the-line speed and some race track prowess.

The Centenario effortlessly swerved through obstacles, proving that although it looks as tough as a bulldozer, it is very agile – all thanks to its carbon fiber monocoque and body with sophisticated aerodynamic treatments as well as an equipped rear-wheel steering system. Its thunderous roar can also be heard in the teaser – proof that the Centenario is not just a pretty face in the race track.

Although the video had been cut short by Lamborghini, it was enough to show off the Centenario’s abilities (which is better than just seeing it drive through Italy’s busy streets). We have been shown what the Centenario is truly about and that it is not just any ordinary tribute to Lamborghini’s founder but one of its most prized possessions. It is a precious piece in Lamborghini’s exotic collection and a stunner both in and outside the track. It adheres to Ferruccio Lamborghini’s goal to produce world class automotive legends that will make history.
