Beverly Hills, California, June 22, 2017 – Automobili Lamborghini America delivered the first example of the groundbreaking Centenario Roadster.

A legend comes to town
Lamborghini continues to honor the centenary of its dynamic founder, Ferruccio. Designers were given the freedom to create an open design that embodies the progressive qualities of Lamborghini’s visionary founder. This next level Roadster embodies a new design direction for Lamborghini accentuated by clean surfaces as ‘form follows function’ – true to Lamborghini’s core design DNA. In addition, Centenario’s silhouette features low overhangs in the front and rear creating a clean, sensuous, mono-body shape.
“This is a very significant vehicle, not only for the Lamborghini brand, but for overall innovation in the super car industry,” said Alessandro Farmeschi, Chief Operating Officer, Automobili Lamborghini America, LLC. “Being at the forefront of carbon fiber advancement, the Centenario is a rare production supercar with full carbon fiber monocoque and body providing aerodynamic superiority.”
The first Centenario Roadster is at home in California. Custom built with a yellow-accented, glossy carbon fiber exterior. Silver wheels with black brake calipers create a striking presence when in motion or at a standstill. The interior follows a matching color scheme with black Nero Ade leather and Alcantara. Highlights include yellow piping and stitching embroidered on the steering wheel and cabin seats. Lamborghini’s Ad Personam program makes it possible to create a completely bespoke masterpiece. The Centenario Roadster has a top speed of more than 217 mph, and can go from 0-62 mph in an exhilarating 2.9 seconds. Finally, 40 of the V12 supercars, which include 20 Roadsters and 20 Coupes, have already been sold at a starting price of 1.75 Million Euros.
