When in Geneva we first saw the Centenario, half of our office has not been positively impressed, perhaps also because of the amount of other proposals admired at the Swiss fair. But at “The Quail”, during the Monterey Car Week, Lamborghini has exploded like a bolt from the blue, presenting the roadster version of the much-discussed Centenario.
What changes is the fact that does not have the rigid roof, but a canvas soft top fully removable by hand, which makes the design of this crazy Lambo with a great desire to celebrate the centenary of its legendary founder, far more convincing. The apotheosis of straight lines and edges remains intact and still able to prick your stomach if you get to close to it, but above all the 770hp VI2, combined with the all-wheel drive and four-wheel steering wheels, let the Centenario Roadster to boast performances worthy of “hat down and ready for a standing ovation” – 2.9 seconds for the 0-100 kph and a top speed of 349 per hour.
It will be produced in only 20 units and all baptized in this special color “Argento Centenario” (Centenary Silver), even more convincing than the bare carbon fiber with yellow highlights seen on the coupe, with prices that will set at around 2 million and a half Euros. Very special, definitely bad and mad at the right point to be accepted in the Lamborghini almanac and exclusive enough to justify such a high price.
