Have a Lamborghini Centenario
Ferruccio Lamborghini, the man who founded one of Italy’s most iconic car brands, would have turned 100 years old in 2016. To celebrate, Lamborghini created the Centenario, a $1.9 million magnum opus that is equally at home on the racetrack as it is on a bedroom wall poster.
Longer, larger, yet lighter than the Aventador supercar, the carbon fiber Centenario features an exterior that is both beautiful and functional. The aerodynamic bumper fins, hood vents, wheel blades, and powerful rear haunches are all sculpted to keep the limited-edition vehicle glued to the ground, and Lambo says the Centenario is twice as aerodynamically efficient as the Aventador.
The Centenario, a limited-edition model presented during the Geneva Auto Show, makes both the Aventador and the Huracán look tame by packing the most powerful engine Lamborghini has ever produced in a head-turning package.
Digital Trends sat down with Maurizio Reggiani, the company’s head of research and development, on the sidelines of the Geneva Auto Show to find out what went into the Centenario’s development, why it’s much more extreme than even the limited-edition Aventador Superveloce, and what this means for the company’s future.
