The Lamborghini Centenario Roadster is a stunning slice piece of automotive engineering and design and it has to be one of the best-looking modern Lamborghinis created to date. In Italian supercar collector circles, it’s one of those cars that’s the equivalent of the Holy Grail, and the limited numbers and the fact that the cars are so damn awesome means they very rarely come up for sale. When they do, you can rest assured they will fetch mad money, and they’ll only be seen at special auctions with top auction houses - just like the one you see here from Bonham’s for the upcoming Bonmont sale in Switzerland. There are plenty Lamborghinis that are rare limited number models, but the Centenario was created to celebrate Lamborghini founder Ferruccio Lamborghini’s 100th birthday. That means this is a limited number car produced purely to celebrate the main man is seen as being a little more special. The Lamborghini Centenario Roadster was released in 2017 and there were only 20 produced and they were available to select people at a sales price of $2,230,000.  The Centenario Roadster features a striking and aggressive design, typical of Lamborghini’s aesthetic of the time, heck, even now. The Centenario has extensive use of exposed carbon fibre, used not only for weight reduction but also for the enhanced rigidity the material is known for. The Centenario includes advanced aerodynamic elements, such as an adjustable rear spoiler and numerous air intakes and outlets to optimise airflow and cooling. Making the car really stand out is that special paint that covers the outrageous bodywork. The car is covered in exclusive "Argento Centenario" silver, but because this is Lamborghini customers could also choose other bespoke colours from the company’s individualisation programs. As is the norm, the Centenario is also equipped with a great infotainment system that includes a high-definition 10.1-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and most importantly a host of telemetrics. Drivers can record and analyse their driving performance and input so they can adjust and improve.

The Lamborghini Centenario Roadster features a normally aspirated 6.5-litre V12 engine that’s rated at an impressive 770 hp (574 kW) and 690 Nm of torque. The car weighs just 1,570 kg and that means when all that power is sent to all four wheels, the supercar can accelerate from a standstill to 100 km/h in a mere 2.9 seconds, and it has a monstrous top speed up at 350 km/h. Each Centenario Roadster could be extensively customised to the buyer’s preferences, ensuring that no two cars are exactly alike which helps keep their value on an upwards trajectory. The Centenario Roadster was first showcased at the 2016 Monterey Car Week in California, attracting considerable attention from enthusiasts and collectors alike. This specific Centenario was delivered new in Switzerland and was first registered on 21st December 2017 and it’s remained the property of that owner since then. On file for the car are four estimates issued by Lamborghini Riyadh (dated 2019, 2021, 2022 and 2023) relating to services, the most recent dated 1st October 2023 at 479 kilometres. That’s some ridiculously low mileage, it has risen a bit, you’ll see in the stunning images that the odometer reads 505 km. As mentioned, this car was sold to a very select clientele for $2,230,000, or just over R41,000,000. This car is expected to fetch as much as R62,000,000 if all goes well and the right bazillionaires get in on the auction action.

Take a look at the YouTube video from well-known YouTube car guy Stradman as he takes a closer look at the rare Lamborghini Centenario Roadster. You can see from his excitement just how cool the car is. It certainly looks like something that will be sought after by quite a few collectors: The World's FIRST Lamborghini Centenario Roadster - $2.75 Million | TheStradman
