EXCLUSIVE: Lamborghini to debut unique Centenario Roadster at The Quail tomorrow
Supercar company celebrates the Miura 50th Anniversary
It could be disputable, but probably the invention of the "Modern Supercar" is an acquisition of Lamborghini. It happened 50 years ago with the introduction of the legendary Miura at the 1966 Geneva Motor Show, which is acclaimed to be one of the most beautiful car ever created. Despite you agree on this fact or not, the brand is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the model and it makes that with a very special premiere tomorrow.
The Italian supercar automaker will make a world premiere of the Centenario Roadster at The Quail tomorrow. Then, it will show the car at Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance on August 21st. Lamborghini is keeping the details scarce and didn't wish to provide any image (even a teaser) to spice up the public.
However, the official data disclosed says that company's newest super sports car will produce 770 horsepower, which is not a surprise, because it is nothing different from the Coupe variant. Just like the latter, the body and structure of the Roadster variant will be made entirely from carbon fiber. There is another similarity and it is the top speed, which is 350 km/h (217 mph). Since the Centenario Coupe is covering the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds, we expect the Roadster to be a little bit slower.
There are exactly 40 Centenarios produced: 20 Coupes and 20 Roadsters, but unfortunately, they have been already sold out. Each has a price tag around $2 million dollars.Although we didn't receive any image of the car, we found a great rendering made by the talented X-Tomi Design.
