Tried causing a scene by driving a supercar in London recently? Good luck – it's like a permanent (and all-too-static) car show with plenty of exotic and ultra-rare vehicles roaming the streets at any time of day. Fortunately, someone with very deep pockets has managed to find a solution to this first world problem by acquiring one of the only 20 Centenario coupes produced by Lamborghini.
Based on the Aventador, but fitted with a look-at-me extravagant body, the Centenario was unveiled a little more than a year ago as a sold-out special edition to celebrate 100 years since the birth of company founder Ferruccio Elio Arturo Lamborghini. The racy body with a beefy front splitter, massive side skirts, and a gargantuan rear diffuser makes the hardcore coupe an eye-grabber, prompting many people to take photos and record videos of this white example. It’s one of the first cars to be delivered by Lamborghini and as you can see it has a rather interesting and devilish license plate: “666666.”
Aside from receiving an outrageous body dipped in carbon fibre, the Centenario is also blessed with an upgraded version of the naturally aspirated 6.5-litre V12 engine. It pumps out a meaty 770hp, so it’s 70hp more powerful than the regular Aventador upon which it’s based. Not only that, but it’s actually stronger than the recently introduced Aventador S with its 740hp. All three of them have the exact same torque figure of 507lb ft.
Lamborghini is also making 20 units of the Centenario Roadster, and it goes without saying that all of them have already been sold despite an eye-watering £1.64 million sticker.
