Sjoerds Weetjes #38: wat is er zo speciaal aan de Lamborghini Centenario?


My name is Sjoerd van Bilsen. I show you special details of a car and explain some remarkable items of a car. Welcome at Sjoerds Weetje #38 Recently, Lamborghini delivered the first and only Centenario in The Netherlands. It is a unique car, because there are only 40 worldwide: 20 Coupes, 20 Roadsters. But what makes the Centenario so extraordinary? Centenario, it’s the Italian word for centenary. It remarks the 100th birthday of Ferruccio Lamborghini, the founder of the legendary manufacture Automobili Lamborghini who past away in 1993. The car is officially called Centenario LP770-4. LP stands for the central position of the V12-engine. 770 is the output in ‘pk’ of the V12-engine, 20 more then the V12 in the Aventador SV produces. The 4 stands for all wheel drive, but this time for four wheel steering also. This is a very special color combination. It is painted in black and painted in yellow. As an option you car choose for a body in bare naked carbon fibre, but the price of that option is 300.000 euros! The aerodynamica of the Centenario is different then from the Aventador. Look at this headlight with the air intakes under and next to the unit. It directs the air to the side for a better airflow. And these air canals makes the airflow over the windscreen and the roof better. For the wheels Lamborghini made carbon fibre vanes, which withdraw hot air from the inside part of the wheel. The heat is generated by the carbon-ceramic brake discs. The discs at the front axle are 400 mm in diameter, at the rear 380 mm. The tires are especially developed for the Centenario. They have a stiffer sidewall and different compound because the car has four wheel steering. The wheels at the front axle are 20 inch high, at the rear even 21 inch. In the centre of the car you find the most powerful V12-engine Lamborghini ever made. It is a 6.5 litre V12 with 770 bhp, 20 more then the V12 from the Aventador LP750-4 SV. Thanks to this engine the Centenario accelerates in only 2.8 seconds from zero to 100 km/h. 0-300 km/h will only takes 23 seconds! The top speed is 350 km/h. The floor is completely flat to optimize the airflow towards the huge diffusor. The rear spoiler is automatically operated and… …generates 180 precent more downforce when activated Driven at top speed the downforce is 225 kg. For the stability of the car of course. At the display in the car you can see the downforce… not only at which wheel, also the force at the front and rear axle. And what is the price of the car? The Centenario costs 1.75 million euro’s… excluding taxes. In The Netherlands the price will be above the two million euros. Despite it’s price, it was not difficult for Lamborghini to find the 40 costumers for the car. By only showing a computer rendering, Lamborghini 30 wealthy people bought the car. And already before the official presentation of the car, all 20 Coupes and 20 Roadsters were sold. The Centenario is a unique tribute to Ferruccio Lamborghini

  1. Dan koop je zo'n bijzonder model, als enige in nederland, en dan verpest je alles met die vreselijk lak. Als Lamborghini fan doet dit pijn aan mn hart.

  2. Voor dat prijskaartje valt de acceleratie dan wel wat tegen. Beetje vergelijkbaar naar 100 als een Porsche 911 Turbo S die een fractie van de prijs is 😉

  3. De auto lijkt op een combinatie van de huracan en de aventador, voorkant huracan achterkant aventador wat het totaalplaatje perfect maakt.

  4. Deze auto is zo bizar maar de Veneno vindt ik ook prachtig. Ik hou echt van Lamborghini maar 2 miljoen ga ik dat wel redden Haha.
