Lamborghini doesn’t tend to so much leave a “mark” with an iconic sleek take on modern European design as blaze twin flaming trails with performance to match. The Lamborghini Centenario LP 770-4 isn’t so much a new chapter in that sporty legacy as a fresh sentence.
The Centenario experience is rooted first and foremost in a V12 engine shouldering its potent powerplant. When you hear that unmistakable resonance of the unique naturally aspirated engine, even cruising at low RPMs leaves no doubt why there’s nothing like a Lambo.
All that lean, mean power is nestled inside an aerodynamically optimized 100% carbon fiber chassis weighing in at a svelte 1,520 kg. With a weight-to-power ratio of 1.97 kg/hp and 35,000 Nm per degree of torsional stiffness, its handling and snare drum-tight cornering are as precisely refined as a surgeon’s hand in the sharpest of curves.
Think the Lamborghini Centenario LP 770-4 is dynamically designed for unmatched performance outside and under the hood? Take a seat inside. Specifically, melt into the factory-standard carbon fiber seats woven to immaculately match the carbon fiber weave of the dashboard, steering wheel, sun visor and rocker covers and the newly designed carbon fiber-and-Alcantara inner door panels.
There’s sexy and sleek. There’s lean and mean. There’s downright intimidating. Then there’s a Lamborghini.
