First Lamborghini Centenario Roadster heads to the United States

Article by Christian A., on June 26, 2017

Last month, the Lamborghini Centenario made its way to the Transformers: The Last Knight premiere where it got the attention of many. Following that event, three Lamborghini Centenario coupes landed on the US soil. One of them made its way to Lamborghini Newport Beach, while the two went straight to Beverly Hills and New Jersey, respectively. And this week, another Centenario arrives, but as a drop top.

We are aware that only a total of 40 units of the Centenario will be produced - 20 roadsters and 20 coupes. Last week, Lamborghini Beverly Hills took one of the 20 Centenario Roadsters. Similar to the coupe, the limited-edition roadster has a V12 engine that produces 759 horsepower (565 kilowatts). The most common colour scheme for the roadster would be the one on the photo, a bare carbon fiber finish with yellow accents, paired with silver wheels and black brake calipers.

To complement the exterior finish, the roadster's interior has been finished with Black Nero Ade leather and Alcantara throughout, accented with yellow piping and stitching on the seats. The steering wheel and the dashboard also get yellow embroidery. As standard with all Lamborghini vehicles, the company's logo is stitched on the headrests.

Chief Operating Officer of Automobili Lamborghini America, LLC, Alessandro Farmeschi said that this is a very significant vehicle, not only for their brand but for the whole supercar industry. The Centenario is a rare production supercar made with carbon fiber monocoque and body providing aerodynamic superiority, making it the leader of carbon fiber advancement.

In terms of performance, the Centenario Roadster's 6.5 liter V12 engine enables it to sprint to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in just 2.8 seconds. Paired with a 7-speed gearbox, it is able to continue on to reach a top speed of 217 miles per hour (349 kilometers per hour).

These are probably the rarest supercars you will find on the planet, and out of the two models, the Centenario Roadster is the more expensive one compared to its hard top counterpart. Each one of the Centenario costs at least $1.9 million and all 40 examples have already been accounted for, while only three of those will make their way to the United States.

If you didn't know, the Centenario was developed to commemorate the 100th anniversary of founder Ferriccio Lamborghini's birth. June 22 marks a historically significant date for the company as they deliver the first of the forty examples in the world to its first customer in Beverly Hills. Now, aren’t you just interested who the customer is? We will soon find out if he takes his new baby out for a ride.
