“You are a tractor driver, you are a farmer. You shouldn't complain driving my cars because they're the best cars in the world.” That’s what Enzo Ferrari said to Ferruccio Lamborghini.

You see, Ferruccio Lamborghini was into his cars but he also liked to criticise them. He had a Mercedes-Benz, two Alfa Romeos along with some Ferraris. Though he loved the way they drove, Ferruccio was often frustrated by the fact that his Ferraris experienced clutch issues so, he went to see Enzo Ferrari in Modena. Now, instead of trying to come up with a solution, Enzo chose to insult Ferruccio by saying that he should simply stick to farming.

Understandably, Lamborghini wasn’t pleased which is why he wanted to prove Enzo wrong. This is why, in 1963, Automobili Lamborghini was established.

Without Ferruccio, Lamborghini simply wouldn’t exist along with some of the advanced technology that can be seen in the automotive industry today. This is why it was no surprise to see Lamborghini make an exclusive model in 2016 to create, what Lamborghini claim to be the ‘finest possible tribute to our founder Ferruccio Lamborghini on the centenary of his birth’.

Lamborghini needed to come up with something big, something that would not only shock the world but also pay homage to Ferruccio’s legacy hence they came up with the Centenario. The word ‘Centenario’ actually means centenary in Italian.

Due to the fact that the Centenario is a tribute car, it isn’t surprising to see that it isn’t as fast as some of the other cars you can get for £3,500,000 but make no mistake, the Centenario is no slouch. The car is equipped with a naturally aspirate 6.5L V12 that produces 770hp. This means that the Centenario can get from 0-60mph in just 2.8 seconds and from then on, the Centenario will continue to charge to a whopping 217mph.

But, the performance isn’t what matters most here. What matters most is the fact that the Centenario is the definition of what a Lamborghini is. It doesn’t care about the others, it doesn’t care about efficacy and, most importantly, it doesn’t care about lap times. It cares about being the most flamboyant and over the top car.... IN THE WORLD.

For example, look at the doors. They go up; they don’t need to go up but they go up. Why? It’s because it’s cool and that right there is the reasoning behind every part of the Centenario.

I don’t think that any other hypercar has the ability to turn heads quite like a Centenario because, unlike most hypercars, you don’t need to know the facts to know that it’s cool car.

So, moving on to why you should buy THIS Centenario Roadster...

Some of you may or may not recognise this Centenario Roadster. Well, if you do then that isn’t surprising. This is because it was actually featured in a video by Heather Ballentine, click here to watch the video.

This Centenario Roadster is unlike any other. You see, Lamborghini only made 20 Roadsters but one Canadian owner didn’t quite think that this was exclusive enough which is why he did something that, at the time, was a first for Lamborghini- he wanted a fully exposed carbon fibre Centenario Roadster.

This means that if you buy this car, you’ll be entering into a club that only has 4 other members- 4!

To put that into perspective, there are 375 McLaren P1s, 499 LaFerraris and 918 Porsche 918 Spyders on this planet.

O​h an no, it wasn’t cheap to get the exposed carbon. It actually cost the owner $300,000 which is the price of, well, another or even multiple Lamborghinis.

Another extremely unique feature of this very Centenario Roadster is its custom Rosso Alala interior which is completely and utterly gorgeous. It’s mainly comprised of alcantara and matte carbon fibre- there is nothing quite like it. The fact that the exterior colour is so dark just helps to emphasise the sheer vibrance of the car’s interior. Furthermore, due to the fact the Centenario Roadster doesn’t actually have a roof, the interior is always visible meaning that, when looking at it from the outside, you won’t feel as if you’re drowning in black.

One of my favourite characteristics about this Centenario Roadster is the accents. On the exterior, you can see the red callipers and Pirelli even created a set of exclusive tyres. You might be wondering what makes them exclusive, well, there’s actually a red line that goes around the entire circumference of each tyre and I think that’s pretty cool.

N​ow, although the Centenario is very advanced when it comes to design and technology, it still uses tyres which is why it isn’t surprising to see that the line has slightly faded but, luckily, it’s still visible.

As per the interior, the main colour is Lamborghini’s exclusive Rosso Alala which is complimented by the matte carbon accents. Heather Ballentine said that it gives the interior of the car quite a fierce look and I agree with her. It also bars the interior from being so red where it becomes a bit too bright for the eyes.

I did request to see the Centenario and be driven around for a brief moment but it turns out the car is in Canada. Now don’t worry, because this car is a used vehicle, it can be shipped anywhere on the planet so, if you have £3.5 million at the back of your sofa, do it.

If you would like to purchase this car, you can find all the details at DC Prestige.

    • I suppose that’s true but with the Centenario, the car and the spec are rare whereas with the P1, it’s just the spec,

    • personally, exclusivity is way overrated. imo , the p1 looks better, is faster, sounds cool and its part of the legendary holy trinity. I would take the P1 anyday. What about you? Would you choose a P1,Laf or 918 over the centenario?
