Lamborghini to display a unique green Centenario in Hong Kong
Lamborghini, the famed Italian car manufacturer, is set to present a bright green Centenario, one of the only 20 coupes ever built, at its new Hong Kong showroom opening set to take place later this month.
Named as a tribute to the 100th anniversary of the birth of Ferruccio Lamborghini, the founder of the company, the Centenario was first introduced at the Geneva 2016 show.
Featuring a top speed of 329 km/h powered by a V12 engine of 770hp, a total of 40 Centenarios were built split into 20 coupes and 20 roadsters. The base price for the car was set at €2,1 million.
Despite this high price, which represents the equivalent of 5 Lamborghini Aventadors, all of the 40 cars were sold ahead of its 2016 debut in Geneva. The series was developed in cooperation with Turin-based OPAC, a company specialized in small series and partner of many car manufacturers.
The Centenario was however far from being the first limited edition car that Lamborghini manufactured. Such previous series include the Reventon, a modified Murcielago model of which 21 units were built, the Lamborghini Veneno of which 14 units exist and the Aventador J, of which only one model exists.
