The Lamborghini Centenario has made its public dynamic debut at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed on June 28. First unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, the limited-edition supercar was made in honour of founder Ferruccio Lamborghini’s 100th birthday.

Eager enthusiasts at the annual motorsports festival bore witness to the stunning sports car in all its locomotive glory: powered by a 6.5-litre V12 engine, the Lamborghini Centenario boasts a 770-horsepower that allows it to accelerate easily to 100 km/h (62 mph) in a mere 2.8 seconds. Built with a body and monocoque entirely of carbon fibre, the supercar features an extending rear wing that keeps it to the road as it races to speeds of up to an impressive 350 km/h (217 mph).

All 20 models of the €1.75 million coupé, as well as 20 Centenario convertibles, have been sold out. Deliveries to customers worldwide are already underway, and US customers can expect theirs to arrive sometime this year.

The Lamborghini Huracán Performante was also showcased for its first public debut in the UK. Launched earlier this year, the Hurcán Performante is the proud record holder of a 6:52.01 minute lap time at the Nürburgring Nordschleife.

The limelight was also shared with the Lamborghini Aventador S. The stellar coupé was marked by exciting new features — think rear-wheel steering — and an improved performance thanks to an updated aerodynamic design, redeveloped chassis and suspension and an increased 740-horsepower.

All three Lamborghini cars come with a naturally-aspirated V12 engine and can be customised through its Ad Personam program to cater to the personal tastes of each customer. The program was created keeping in mind founder Ferruccio’s vision of personalization to grant customers an extra special touch to their limited-edition coupés.
