The eye-popping Lamborghini Centenario breaks cover

Southern California is no stranger to celebrity sightings, but one angular beauty recently caused quite a stir. The first Lamborghini Centenario bound for an owner in the United States landed in Newport Beach, where local car enthusiasts were given a coveted glimpse of the automotive A-lister and its striking style.

One of only 20 examples of the coupe that will be produced, the car was customised using the marque's Ad Personam personalisation program. It's completely carbon-fibre body is embellished with detailing in Lamborghini's Blu Nethuns, a colour choice that appears on the vehicle's lower section, rear air intake, rear wing, and roof lining.

The blue hue continues inside as reflected by the shade selection for the centre console and the Blu Amon stitching that provides contrast against the black Nero Ade leather and Alcantara upholstery and trim. In all, the tailored visual aesthetic makes an already stare-worthy raging bull even more stunning.

Debuted at the Geneva International Motor Show last year, the limited-edition Centenario was developed to commemorate what would have been the 100th birthday of founder Ferruccio Lamborghini who passed away in 1993 at the age of 76.

A fitting tribute, the all-wheel-drive model features the most powerful engine that Lamborghini has ever made, a naturally aspirated V12 that generates 575kW. With a weight-to-power ratio of 2.64 kilograms per kW, the car can cover zero to 100km/h in 2.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 350km/h.

In addition to the 20 coupes, Lamborghini also has 20 roadster versions as part of the line. But collectors have been quick to respond and every Centenario has already been purchased. Deliveries will continue throughout the year. (lamborghini.com)
