Of all the 2017 models, few got us as excited as the 2017 Lamborghini Centenario. Sadly, all 40 models sold out before we could even make an offer – or raise the funds for that matter. Let’s find out why.
Release Date of Lamborghini Centenario
The 2017 Centenario is a limited series of 40 cars that were all preordered and sold out, so there is no such thing as a release date. Their buyers will receive these beauties by the end of 2017.
2017 Lamborghini Centenario Price
The starting price for the 2017 Lamborghini Centenario was $1.9 million without additional equipment, and there are also delivery costs to consider. The exact cost varies from model to model.
The exterior of the new Centenario is about as aggressive as we might expect, with the front of a Veneno, and the hood of the Aventador.
There are signature yellow stripes on the sides and a front splitter of the same color. The body is almost entirely of carbon fiber, made to be light and durable, with aerodynamics second to none.
Interior of Lamborghini Centenario
On the inside, the 2017 Lamborghini Centenario is absolutely stunning. Given the small number of models, the interior of each and every one of them is going to be different and custom-made per customer’s requests.
What they all will have in common are the carbon fiber sport seats and highest-class Alcantara leather all over the cabin. We are talking about seats, the dashboard and even the steering wheel in some cases. The rest is mostly carbon fiber, especially on the central console and certain parts of the steering wheel.
The instrument cluster is exactly what you would expect, with a digital display and two vertical gauges telling you all you need to know about fuel, engine temperature etc.
Infotainment needs are covered via a 10.1-inch touchscreen with a system you can use to surf on the web, send and receive e-mails, use social media and various apps (hopefully not while you’re driving)… Needless to say, full iPhone integration has been enabled.
There are options for measuring track performance, telemetry and they even offer indoor cameras that record the experience inside the cabin.
The powertrain of the 2017 Lamborghini Centenario is as mighty as one might expect, bringing all the horsepower that can come out of a naturally aspirated V-12 engine – all 770 of them. With 8,600 rpm being the new benchmark, it stands to reason this car will be as loud as it gets.
Unfortunately, the exact torque has not been made public yet, but it will surely feature a number of improvements over the previous version.
With power being directed to all four wheels, the new Centenario can reach 60 mph in under 3 seconds, and top it off at 217 mph.
Another cool feature is the rear-wheel steering, which increase agility at lower speeds by moving in the opposite direction of the front wheels, for better turns. At higher speeds, they turn in the same direction as the front, so the wheelbase is technically much larger, and focuses on speed instead.
