This Is The Lamborghini Centenario In All Its Perfection

The Lamborghini Centenario is made to celebrate Feruccio Lamborghini’s birth. The vehicle is marking 100 years since the birth of the man that came up as one of the most known figures in the auto world.

The exclusive Lamborghini Centenario just made its debut in Geneva. In a few short words; the Lamborghini’s Centenario is a gorgeous celebration of an extreme legacy in one single automobile that will see a limited production run of 40 vehicles. The Italian factory will produce 20 coupes and 20 roadster, each at 1.75 million euros or an equivalent of $1.9 million dollars. The full batch has already been sold out.

The vehicle comes with a naturally aspirated V12 engine producing 770hp, which seems almost quaint by the amazing standards of the 1,500hp Bugatti Chiron and the radical Koenigsegg Regera, but it propels the Centenario from 0-100km/h (0-62mph) in just 2.8 seconds. Thanks to its carbon monocoque and body, it tips the scale at 1,520 kg, which is 55 kilograms less than the Aventador – on which this vehicle is based. The vehicle is 4,924 mm long and 1,143 mm high. This translates into the Centenario being 144 mm longer and 7 mm taller than the Aventador. The naked carbon fiber and the design elements on this look amazing.

The forged wheels this beast is riding on are sized 20 inches in the front and 21 inches in the rear respectively, wrapped in Pirelli P Zero tires. The tires themselves are specially developed for the rear-wheel steering on this vehicle and give ample traction, performance and cornering speed. The whole vehicle screams performance from every angle and clear angle.

The Lamborghini Centenario joins the Reventon, Aventador J, Veneno and Sesto Elemento, as the utmost radical of the supercars from the Sant’Agata Bolognese car maker. Check out the full media gallery of this vehicle, available right below.

Maserati Levante Revealed At The Geneva Motor Show

The Italian car maker chose the 2016 Geneva Motor Show for one of the biggest reveals in company history. Maserati is showing the Levante. Its the first SUV in the hundred-year history of the luxury sports car maker, making it a truly remarkable showcase for the average car nut.

As with many Maseratis from the past, the new car’s name is inspired by a wind: the Levante is a warm Mediterranean wind that can change from a light breeze to an irresistible natural force in an instant, mirroring the character of the first Maserati SUV. With so many models from Italy and their respective car makers, we are pleased to see another rather interesting name headed for – what can objectively be called – one of the best looking vehicles in its segment available on the market.

Will Lamborghini Reveal An RWD Huracan At LA Auto Show?

According to AutoCar, the Italian car maker is set to reveal a rear-wheel drive Lamborghini Huracan at the Los Angeles Auto Show later this month. This doesn’t come as a surprise, as the RWD model for the highly successful Huracan is only logical and perfectly expected for the Italian car maker. It will probably feature an uprated engine, a lighter body weight and overall, a bit more performance oriented nature as well.

Chances are the rear-wheel drive Huracan will be a limited edition model. It will probably come with a higher price tag than the standard vehicle. On the other hand, it will keep interest for the Lamborghini’s entry level model flowing, giving the car maker preferable increase in sales and more marketing value. The idea of a rear-wheel drive V10 powered sports car is and always will be appealing, thus the potential release of such a car from Lamborghini is quite normal. How will it compare to the standard Huracan in terms of power, weight and handling, still remains to be seen.

Currently the Huracán maintains the 5.2 L naturally aspirated V10 engine from the Gallardo, tuned for 610 PS (449 kW; 602 hp). To ensure its balance and performance, the car is mid-engined, thus providing an excellent set of performance virtues in such a configuration. The V10 engine installed provides the car with enough power to propel the car from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in 3.2 seconds, while reaching a top speed of 202mph or 325km/h for us Europeans for example.
