The 2017 Lamborghini Centenario, which was recently unveiled at the 2016 Auto Show in Geneva, marks the birthday of Ferruccio Lamborghini, the founder of Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. The word Centenario in the name refers to the hundredth birthday of the founder of the company. For the year 2017, the automaker will release the 2017 model Centenario in two trim levels, such as Roadster and Coupe.
However, the total units to be manufactured have been restricted to 40 vehicles, such that each trim level would come with 20 units for the 2017 year. The new model Centenario comes with immense performance and style due to its powerful engine and due to the liberal use of frivolous materials while constructing the vehicle. Although the 2017 Centenario carries a higher price tag in terms of millions, all the 40 units have already been disposed before its scheduled release date.
2017 Lamborghini Centenario Design, Exterior
The new Lambo features monocoque structure with the carbon-fiber framework, and like with all latest Lamborghini models. The body form follows function, as the lines are committed to aerodynamic efficiency, and strategically positioned ducts send the cooling air to the brakes and radiators. An extendable back wing ensures sufficient downforce at high velocities, but it would integrate in order into the neighboring body panels when not required.
The permanent all-wheel drive acquires that power to the roadway through the Independent Shifting Rod mechanical manual transmission of Lamborghini. The back-wheel steering will lessen the turning circle and will improve the handling at low velocities. For those Centenario owners who are courageous enough to put the super sedan on a racetrack, the automaker has incorporated room for two helmets in the front chest.
The new Lamborghini Centenario 2017 has permeability, which is defined by the vents, intakes, and channels that demonstrate its aerodynamic supremacy. The whole body of the novel vehicle has been constructed by making use of carbon fiber to decrease its overall weight to 3351 lbs (approx 1532 kg).
A single stripe that runs from the vehicle’s front to its back defines the well-known Lamborghini curves, with unmitigated, low front and back overhangs, producing a clean, extravagant, unibody shape. The novel vehicle is constructed with an overall length of 4.924 meters and an overall height of 1.143 meters. Both front and back parts of the new vehicle are equipped with aerodynamic bays, which are made up of numerous fins. The front bonnet of the new vehicle comes with huge air scoops that take up the air in the course of the front part of the vehicle, contributing to the downforce of the front axle of the vehicle.
Moreover, air passes through inside channels of the shell of the front headlamps and others about the wheel arcs and in the side skirts, perking up the flow of air to the rear radiators and offering adequate cooling. The roof of the vehicle that comes with air scoops acquires its styling from aeronautic prompts, enhanced by a glass engine wrap and a hexagonal carbon fiber.
The next generation Lamborghini Centenario would sprint on 20-inch diameter artificial aluminum wheels in the front and 21-inch diameter wheels at the rear, enclosed by the yellow-bounded Pirelli PZero tires.
The 2017 Lamborghini Centenario interior can be completed to the individual specifications of each buyer. Nevertheless, the treatment starts with lightweight carbon fiber sports seats, sewed leather and Alcantara trim and it extends for sun visors, rocker covers, dashboard and steering wheel, as well. The inner part of the door sheets is made up of Alcantara and carbon fiber.
The infotainment system, which is centered about a 10.1-inch touch-screen exhibit, features complete in-car connectivity and it consists of Apple CarPlay. In addition to two optional internal cameras, most probably to record the smiles on the passenger’s and the driver’s faces while they put the new Centenario through its speeds. An advanced telemetry function in the infotainment system offers information about the vehicle’s performance, times, velocities, side and G forces.
The occupants of the vehicle can browse the internet, and they can join social media and email and can exploit online apps, like web radio. The incorporation of Apple CarPlay allows an efficient, safe way to make telephone calls, demand directions, access the iPhone functionality and play music.
2017 Lamborghini Centenario Engine
2017 Lamborghini will get its essential power from a V12 natural aspirated engine of displacement 6.5 liters. This is a highly amenable engine, even at little revolutions it offers the clear-cut reverberation and attributes. This engine will provide the novel vehicle with the peak power of 770 horses. It also offers the new Centenario better acceleration that makes it attain the 62 mph / 0-100 km/h velocity from the stationary mode in 2.8 seconds. From 0-186 mph/0-300 km/h in 23.5 seconds with a top speed of more than 217 mph/350 km/h.
Breaking is impressive: from 100-0 km/h in stops in 30m and from 300-0 km/h in 290m.
Date of release and price
The 2017 Lamborghini Centenario release date is expected to be the fourth quarter of 2016 and all the 40 manufactured vehicles have been sold earlier than the scheduled date of release at a price of 1.75 million Euros / $ 1,92 million (plus tax).
