Hong Kong gets its second Lamborghini Centenario Coupe in Lime Green

Many of us know that Hong Kong is one of the most expensive cities in the world, but we don’t often see a lot of supercars in the country, or maybe we just don’t hear about them. Recently, one of just 40 examples of the Lamborghini Centenario had just been spotted in Hong Kong.

As we know, the said model will only have a limited run - that includes 20 coupes and 20 convertibles, where each one starts at $1.9 million. In the past few months, we have seen over 10 examples that have been delivered across the globe. The very first one, finished in a beautiful carbon fiber and blue trimmed bull, was delivered to Lamborghini Newport Beach in California, USA. We also heard about the orange-trimmed Centenario that showed up at H.R. Owen in London.

As mentioned earlier, one of the Centenarios has just landed in Hong Kong. As if being one of 40 is not rare enough, the coupe becomes even more exclusive in its Verde Bronto bright green exterior that has been given a matte finish for a standout look. To make it look more stylish, it had been given some carbon fiber trim, and there are gold carbon fiber accents on the roof, engine cover, side mirrors, rear wing, the lower body and the wheels for some contrast. What’s more is that the gold accenting is scattered through the cabin for added luxury.

Two new Lamborghini Centenarios have landed on US soil

Enthusiasts know that in the automotive world, beauty (and power) always comes with a price – a very big price, at that. The Lamborghini Centenario is an example. Considering its beauty and power, the Centenario has a right for an expensive price tag. It gets more expensive when you factor in its exclusivity as only 40 examples will be available worldwide. Twenty units of this exclusive hypercar come as coupes, while the other twenty are convertibles. Come to think of it, with its price and a limited number of units available [worldwide], it will be quite rare to spot any one of these in just any ordinary neighborhood.

Last May, we’ve learned of the whereabouts of one Centenario, which is apparently flaunting its stunning bare carbon fiber exterior featuring blue accents in California – and our first time to spot the car not in is usual carbon fiber and yellow finish. Now, just a few weeks from this first sighting, two more examples have been spotted in the stateside. Photos of the said vehicles have already circulated online, leaving us jaw-slacked by its beauty.

The first of the latest two examples comes in Nuovo Giallo Orion yellow finish with carbon fiber accents – yet again, forgoing its usual carbon fiber body. The said majestic creation landed into U.S. soil just a few months after the first sighting, and it was delivered fresh to Lamborghini Beverly Hills to await its owner.

Lamborghini Centenario is put on display at London dealership, set for delivery to HR Owen

A few months ago, Lamborghini introduced the Centenario supercar. Since then, only eight units of the model were brought out by the company. And if you remember, we’ve already seen three of those examples: where the first one wore a combination of orange and black finish, the second one wearing a classic yellow and carbon fiber finish, and the third had a carbon fiber body though Lamborghini’s Ad Personam program, finished with blue accents - this one was a U.S. example.

This supercar, based on the Aventador, has been eagerly anticipated. To make everybody aware, the Centenario celebrates Lamborghini founder, Ferriccio Lamborghini’s 100th birthday. Having only 40 models built worldwide, 20 of those will be coupes, and the other 20 will be roadsters.

Each and every unit of the Centenario does have its own character, but we would say that the eighth one is the most unique of them all. Leading luxury dealer group, H.R. Owen has welcomed the supercar at its most famous Lamborghini London dealership on Saturday 27 May. What makes this Centenario unique from its other counterparts is that it wears a bare carbon fiber exterior combined with orange accents all over the body. This is currently the only example with this exclusive finish, and is the first of its kind in the U.K., making it a truly unique piece.

First Lamborghini Centenario has landed on U.S. shores

The Italian sports car Lamborghini revealed the first ever magnificent Centenario around the year 2016 at the Geneva Motor Show. And even though the Lamborghini Aventador SV and Centenario have a brooding similarity when it comes to performance, the Centenario was pretty much still a hit to loyal Lamborghini fans and car enthusiasts worldwide. Now a Lamborghini Centenario has arrived in the U.S., particularly at Newport Beach located in Costa Mesa, California. While it is the first ever Centenario to step on American land, it won’t be the last.

Largely based on the Lamborghini Aventador SV, the dashing Centenario utilizes the same 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 that will produce around 759hP (565 kW) and pure 508 lb-ft (688 Newton Meters) of torque, allowing the sports car to reach around 60 miles per hour (96 km per hours) needing only 2.8 seconds to do the job. Nevertheless, the top speed of the Centenario is limited to around 217 mph (349 kmh). The said horsepower is only 20hp more powerful than its predecessor, but the Centenario is considered a tad lighter due to its carbon fiber body. The Centenario weighs at an estimated 3,350 lbs (1,519 kg).

The Italian automaker claimed that performance-wise, the Centenario is more dominant compared to SV but not on a large scale. Only 40 units of the Lamborghini Centenario worth around $1.9 million each will be manufactured and sold globally. Specifically, there will be 20 coupes and 20 convertibles produced to celebrate the 100th birthday of founder Ferrucio Lamborghini, who was born on April 28, 1916. The swanky sports car that was delivered in the US flaunted its awesome bare carbon fiber exterior paired with blue accents to contrast its dark paint.

Lamborghini has begun handing over the Centenarios to their rightful owners in different parts of the world. Last month, the first out of the forty Aventador-based Centenario has been delivered to an affluent car collector all the way to the UAE. There is also the menacing matte black Lamborghini Centenario that was being transported in Germany a few days ago. And very recently, a matte white Centenario has made its way to Paris!

The white Lamborghini in the video is believed to belong to a certain Qatari Sheikh Khalifa bin Hamad Al Thani. By far, the matte white finish is the most extraordinary paint scheme of all that has been delivered.

While the Centenario model that was put by Lamborghini at the show stands last year come in carbon fiber finish with yellow accents, this one generally comes in matte white body paint. But in many ways, it happens to express a different character since it also comes with contrasting color scheme.

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.

2016 is a special year for Automobili Lamborghini as this year would have been the 100th birthday of Ferruccio Lamborghini, founder of the illustrious Italian Sports car manufacturer. In honor of the late founder, Automobili Lamborghini recently unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show the ultra exclusive, ultra powerful Lamborghini Centenario.

The new Lamborghini Centenario is certainly fast, but that’s not so surprising when one considers the V12 naturally aspirated engine powering this supercar. The V12 engine delivers 770 hp which propels the amazing car to a breathtaking acceleration of 0-100 km/h in 2.8 seconds and it reaches 0- 300 km/h in a short 23.5 seconds until the Lamborghini masterpiece achieves its maximum speed of 350 km/h. Yes, it is that fast that one would be forgiven if one thinks it’s a spaceship on wheels as it zips by in a blur. Yet the analogy might not be totally off given the car is extremely light, achieved by a fusion of high-tech monocoque design fully done in carbon fiber resulting to a very low weight of 1,520 kg. With a small weight to power ratio of only 1.97 kg/hp, the supercar can’t help but almost fly down the road. And yet, taming this speedy beast is relatively easy; the car brakes from a fast 100 km/h to a complete standstill in a short 30 meters.

Ensuring that the supercar stays on the road is its aerodynamic design which includes the extending rear wing gluing the car to the road with its downforce at high speeds. Additional stability and agility is made possible by the rear-wheel steering system. The supercar is also occupant-friendly, with a host of top-of-the-line convenience features such as the touchscreen controlled infotainment system, internet browsing capability and the Apple CarPlay.

When Ford unveiled its new Ford GT nearly four years ago at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, the supercar was received very well even through the US carmaker only disclosed a few details. When the company started to produce the Ford GT, one thing was very apparent – the demand for the supercar greatly outstrips the supply. Two years into the supercar’s production, Ford is building more units than previously earmarked.

Even before it started production of the Ford GT, the US carmaker had said only 1,000 units of the supercar will be built. Ford had set the annual production pace for the Ford GT at 250 units every year. This means that supercar would have a production run that would last for around four years.

But when the US carmaker started accepting orders for the Ford GT, the total number of applicants quickly grew to more than 6,500. This number was just for the 2016 iteration of the supercar. Unfortunately, Ford can only accommodate 1,000 of the applicants, which means that the Ford GT is practically sold out.

The Porsche 918 Spyder is a very unique sports car, being a plug-in hybrid with a limited production run of just 918 units. After it was introduced in 2013, the 918 Spyder was sold out in more than just a year. Its production ended in June 2015, and there is no way an interested buyer can get a new 918 Spyder unless he or she goes for the used car market. Of course, any 918 Spyder on the used car market is expected to have already logged thousands of miles on the odometer.

But in a strike of luck, those who wanted to purchase an almost new Porsche 918 Spyder now have a great opportunity to get one in the used car market, through MotorGT.com and Porsche of South Shore in Freeport, New York. The 918 Spyder is much rarer in the United States, with less than 300 units allocated for this market.

This particular Porsche 918 Spyder (VIN WP0CA2A13FS800527) on sale is almost new, even though it was built as a 2015 model. On its odometer, this 918 Spyder has so far recorded just 45 miles (or 72 kilometers), which are essentially delivery miles. This means that the owner of this 918 Spyder might have not driven it or just took this sports car only for a quick spin after it was delivered. It is fairly difficult for any buyer to get an almost new used car in the market and yet, this 918 Spyder has just been driven for just 45 miles.

Acura has unveiled the latest iteration of the Acura NSX at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering, in Moneterey, California. The 2019 Acura NSX is still as powerful as before, but the luxurious sports car is now a better performer. It also boasts of new colors both on the exterior and interior, as well as a number of new design cues.

The 2019 Acura NSX unveiled at The Quail is finished in a new premium paint option – the Thermal Orange Pearl coat. This new finish is a tribute to 30 years of Acura motorsports vehicles with orange accented liveries. In addition, orange calipers are also available for the optional carbon ceramic metallic (CCM) brakes. Likewise, red calipers can be fitted to the standard iron brakes.

Moreover, the front grille garnish for all 2019 Acura NSX models are now body-colored instead of silver. The front grille surround, front air intake mesh as well as the rear bumper outlet mesh have received high-gloss treatments, and so are the available Carbon Fiber Decklid Spoiler and Carbon Fiber Exterior Package. This package includes a front chin spoiler, side sill garnish and rear diffuser – all in high-gloss treatment.

SSC North America, formerly known as Shelby SuperCars, has been working on a successor for the SSC Ultimate Aero. A concept of the successor was unveiled at the 2011 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, but due to unknown reasons, the final car has yet to make into production. Seven years after the concept at the same place and event, SSC North America is unveiling to the public the final form of this concept as it goes into production – the new SSC Tuatara.

The new SSC Tuatara is named after a greenish-brown and gray lizard – which can only be found in New Zealand -- known for having the fastest molecular evolution for any living animal. The SSC Tuatara unveiled at Pebble Beach was also wrapped in similar grayish color. Underneath this wrapped is a body and a chassis all made from carbon fiber. Moreover, the 20-inch wheels of the Tuatara are also made from carbon fiber. By employing carbon fiber, SSC North America is able to make Tuatara a lightweight hypercar with a dry weight of just 2,750 lbs. (1,247 kg).

The use of carbon fiber also paved way for a wind-cheating, aerodynamically superior curvy design. The incredibly sporty overall looks of the new SSC Tuatara hypercar is penned by Jason Castriota, a former designer at Pininfarina. The design of the new Tuatara takes inspiration from the aerospace industry. This design gave the hypercar a low drag coefficient value of just 0.279 Cd – the lowest in its class.

Noble Automotive has been building the Noble M600 supercar since 2010. Featured in Top Gear, the M600 is currently Noble’s only model in production. That may change in the near future as the British carmaker has made known its intention to build an all-new supercar by displaying the Noble M500 at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

But before drooling at the Noble M500 displayed at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, let it be known that this is just a full-size mockup or a non-working prototype. The main reason for this is that M500 is still in its early phases of development, which is also why the new Noble supercar most likely won’t be produced this year.

Wrapped in bright yellow finish with black-tinted glasses, this mockup model represents how the Noble M500 would look like when it is finally built. As a mockup, the M500 at Goodwood is just for show, but doesn’t have the specs and features intended for its final version. This non-working prototype doesn’t even have an interior. Nevertheless, the mockup is visually appealing enough to draw attention of visitors at Goodwood.

Right now, Audi is in the earliest stages when it comes to developing a fully electric supercar. But as this technology is still a few years away before they can be used, Audi sees this as one of the obstacles.

Peter Oberndorfer, Audi’s boss of product and technology communications, told Motoring that at this moment, they really consider everything, but they think that battery development is vital.

Oberndorfer believes that future solid state batteries will be necessary to achieve the perfect combination of performance and range. Peter Mertens, the development boss, confirms that solid state batteries will not be available anytime soon. He also told Motoring that the advantage of these batteries would be that they’re much lighter and need less space.

Pagani Zonda will not allow the spotlight to be away from it, even years after the Huayra has been introduced. Now, there is a very special one on the road that is specially hand painted by the well-known artist Shalemar Sharbatly. The design is so vibrantly beautiful that it is going to be difficult to keep your eyes out of the supercar.

The project began with Foglizzo, an Italian luxury leather company, who has the desire to show off their huge range of dyes for customizing the colour of their hides. The first thing they did was to wrap the supercar in white, and for four days, Sharbatly took her time to unleash her work of art.

When looking at the finished product, you can see that the artist has used different colours on different sections on the Zonda. To point that out, the front part is a combination of blue and green with purple touches, the driver’s side then has shades of sapphire and cerulean, and the passenger side looks better with some red, orange, and maroon. The rear end of the car, where the tail is, then indicates a mix of these colour motifs. It is a beautiful look for the already stunning supercar. We think that this Zonda is definitely ready to hit the road.

The Lamborghini Huracan LP580-2 has been out in the market for about 2 years now, with the last number in the model’s name indicating that the vehicle has a two wheel drive layout, which was implemented in the new Audi R8 V10 RWS. If you are a fan of RWDs and are expecting to see a larger Aventador with that setup, you will be disappointed as the automaker has no plans of developing an RWD version.

During the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, Australia’s Drive magazine interviewed R&D boss of Lamborghini, Maurizio Reggiani. Here, he revealed that the Aventador will remain to be the company’s flagship model and is going to keep its all wheel drive system. You may be wondering why that has been decided. Well, it is because sending as much power from the V12 to the rear axle will allegedly make the vehicle difficult to manage once it hits a certain speed. To be safe, the automaker decided not to let this happen as they will be liable for it.

Furthermore, they assured that the decision was not only made due to safety reasons, but also because the Lamborghini Aventador is meant to keep its all-four wheel configuration. Without this AWD layout, the supercar’s traction control system would be so invasive, says Reggiani.

Lamborghini has made it a point for its future vehicles to have the same renowned exhaust note. That is why the automaker has put the focus on hybrids instead of going full throttle on building fully electric vehicles. Hybrids are perfect because they reduce dangerous emissions but customers and onlookers alike still get to enjoy the sound of its powerplant.

In an interview between CarAdvice and Maurizio Reggiani, Lamborghini’s Chief Technical Officer, we learned that the automaker looks at hybrid machines as the answer to carbon dioxide requirements. With a hybrid, they’re able to keep the natural aspirated appeal but reduce the CO2 emissions and fuel consumption.

Reggiani also mentioned that the future Aventador and Huracan will still retain their naturally aspirated engine, but it is not impossible for them to have hybrid assistance. The chief technical officer believes that this will have two major advantages: a better throttle response and the fact that it will provide a differentiating factor over turbocharged, supercar competitors like Ferrari and McLaren cars.

The racetrack-bred Zenvo TSR has been so awe-inspiring that some drivers are aching to take it to the streets. But they couldn’t, as the TSR isn't designed to be legally driven on the streets. However, Zenvo Automotive is unveiling a new version of the TSR that could be legally driven on the streets – the all-new Zenvo TSR-S.

Zenvo intended the new TSR-S as a street legal version of the TSR, which is why it bears the ’S’ in its model name. It is the third model in Zenvo’s TS (Twin Supercharged) model lineup and is basically a crossover between the TS1 GT car and the TSR, marrying remarkable on-road capabilities and utmost exclusivity. After all, Zenvo is planning just to build five examples of the TSR-S a year – a testament to its exclusive nature. The Danish high-performance carmaker has already commenced production of the new TSR-S.

In terms of design, the new TSR-S looks very similar to its two TS siblings. Its overall appearance is more aggressive than the TS1; yet, it is less menacing than the TSR. Just like the TS1 and the TSR, the new TSR-R features an advanced aerodynamic design. However, its development was focused on delivering unmatched levels of driving dynamics.

A new version of the Lamborghini Aventador is definitely on the way; it is just that the supercar maker has yet to announce its official name. There have been reports saying that this would be a Performante, an SE, a GT, a JOTA or an SV, although nothing is sure yet. Nonetheless, the newest Aventador is a true performer, with a potential power output of more than 800 PS.

While Lamborghini has yet to officially announce the true moniker of its new Aventador creation, it seems like a leak has occurred. Weeks ago, an Instagram user shared a leaked image of the instrument display showing the name of the new Lamborghini supercar – the Aventador SVJ. The letters SV has been known to stand for Super Veloce, which are the Italian words for “super fast.” Quite a number of Raging Bull models have already received this designation.

The letter J, meanwhile, was first used by adopted by the factory’s test driver Bob Wallace, whose drove a special version of the Lamborghini Miura that bears the J mark. In fact, Lamborghini actually managed to convert some Miura SV models to SV/J specification. The Aventador J – unveiled at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show -- was the last Lamborghini model to use the letter as a suffix.

We are expecting a lot from Hennessey’s Venom F5, as it is reported to have a top speed of 300 miles per hour. This sounds like something no decent hypercar fan would want to pass up. And even though we have already seen the coupe variant at last year’s SEMA, the sad part is that it is not road-ready just yet. So hopefully, we see a working version of the Hennessey at the upcoming 2018 Geneva Motor Show in a few weeks.

Aside from this, the automaker will also bring the new Venom F5 to Europe for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show, says the publication CarBuzz. Together with the Venom, the company’s boss, John Hennessey will also make a special appearance in Switzerland.

The American hypercar should be right at home opposite regular attendees such as Bugatti and Koegnisegg, together with newer offerings from Italdesign, Rimac and a few others.

Mercedes-Benz recently published an AMG Project One teaser, and just by hearing those words, I am pretty sure that we got you excited. But here is the thing, it wasn’t a teaser of a hyper car this time, but a boat instead - or should we say hyper boat?

This boat is not like any regular boat out there, but it can be more accurately described as a Cigarette Racing offshore powerboat. It has been inspired by the impressive Mercedes-AMG Project One. The good news here is that we have been given full disclosure on this boat, and we are telling you now that it isn’t like your regular seagoing yacht that has an automaker’s badge but cannot perform. In fact, this is quite the opposite of that. With over 51 feet in length, this model is packed with carbon fiber, and can do 140 miles per hour (225 kilometers per hour) on water.

This boat is called the Cigarette Racing 515 Project One. It does not have the hypercar’s monstrous engine but that is completely fine with us. In fact, the Mercedes AMG Project One’s 1,000 horsepower engine will not get the boat anywhere near 140 miles per hour, and that is why this water borne Project One has been equipped with a pair of Mercury Racing quad-cam V8 engine that brings out 1,350 horsepower (1,006 kilowatts) each.
