2017 Lamborghini Centenario Roadster – St. Louis, MO
When it comes to supercars, few have the striking presence of a Lamborghini. Every so often, the legendary Italian automaker will celebrate a special occasion by revealing an ultra-limited edition model for those who are constantly seeking even more exclusivity, performance, and jaw-dropping design.
This year marks the 100th birthday of the late Ferruccio Lamborghini, meaning it’s time for the Italian automaker to celebrate once again. The 2017 Centenario Roadster was recently unveiled at the legendary Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
2017 Lamborghini Centenario Roadster: Performance
The naturally aspirated 6.5L V12 engine in the Lamborghini Centenario Roadster produces an astonishing 770 horsepower, making it the most powerful Lamborghini ever produced. With a top speed of 217 MPH and a mind-bending 0-60 MPH time of only 2.8 seconds, the Centenario Roadster requires some serious stopping power to match. Its 15.75-in. vented and cross-drilled carbon-ceramic brakes take the one-of-twenty open-top from 186 MPH to 0 MPH in under 23.5 seconds. Bolstered by its carbon-fiber monocoque chassis and F1-style inboard push rod rear suspension, rear-wheel steering, and magnetorheological active dampers, the Centenario Roadster can make full use of its incredible power and groundbreaking all-wheel-drive system through both the longest of straightaways and the sharpest of corners.
2017 Lamborghini Centenario Roadster: Exterior Design
While the Centenario hardtop that Lamborghini unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Auto Show was show in a gloss-finish carbon fiber to display its aerospace-grade construction, the 2017 Lamborghini Centenario Roadster was released in a Roadster-exclusive color called “Argento Centenario,” which is a stunning satin-finished silver blue.
The bold and angular lines of the Centenario Roadster are not only to grab attention from everyone on the road, but it also serves several vital functions. Huge vents and air ducts are sculpted specifically to draw in massive amounts of air to help cool the big carbon ceramic brakes and the 6.5L V12 engine when driven hard. As the main design feature of the rear, the diffuser optimizes airflow distribution, reduces drag, and increases downforce. There is also an integrated rear wind that deploys at high speed, hard acceleration, and under heavy breaking. The wing extends up to 150mm and can rotate up to 15 degrees to provide maximum grip under any situation.
2017 Lamborghini Centenario Roadster: Interior Features
The interior of the Centenario Roadster is just as impressive as its exterior design. Every owner can choose any interior color combination through the Lamborghini Ad Personam personalization program. Contrast piping, diamond stitching, Alcantara and leather surfaces, and dashboard trims are all fully customizable features. The infotainment system is controlled by a high-definition 10.1-in. touchscreen with Internet browsing, email connectivity, and other app integration. Apple CarPlay is also featured for Bluetooth® hands-free calling, navigation, music, and other iPhone integration capabilities.
