Following the introduction of the Centenario Coupé, Lamborghini unveils the open version of its latest one-off creation to fervent collectors and enthusiasts at 2016 Monterey Car Week in California in occasion of the event "The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering". A natural successor to its coupé counterpart, the Lamborghini Centenario Roadster is also limited to 20 units worldwide and represents a true illustration of Lamborghini's commitment to advance automotive design to new, inspirational heights.
Known for experimenting with new cutting edge colors, designers developed a special silver exterior color, called "Argento Centenario", fashioned exclusively for the Lamborghini Centenario Roadster, accentuating its curvaceous profile. To achieve this signature matte finish, designers applied a new high-tech process dissolving the metal while diluting and diminishing the appearance of the metal grain giving it a silky and rich exterior finish.
The car's enhanced aerodynamic design includes an extending rear wing providing more downforce at high speeds and is equipped with rear-wheel steering for increased agility and stability. A new fully connected infotainment and innovative touchscreen system includes internet browsing and Apple CarPlay for easy use.
The highly responsive V12 architecture delivers 770 hp (566 kW) with an engine speed regulator raised from 8,350 rpm to 8,600 rpm. Accelerating from 0-100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds the Centenario Roadster's top speed is more than 350 km/h. Braking distance is equally impressive: from 100-0 km/h in just 31 m (102 feet).
