In a similar vein as the Lamborghini Veneno, the Centenario LP 770-4 is a limited-production hypercar by Lamborghini based on the Lamborghini Aventador. Built to celebrate Ferruccio Lamborghini's 100th birthday, only 40 examples of this car were built: 20 coupes and 20 roadsters.
Ferruccio Lamborghini was a Taurus, hence the influence of the symbol of the raging bull on the many cars of his prestigious brand he began in 1963 to compete with rival Ferrari. Lamborghini was born in 1916, and the new Centenario was built to celebrate his 100th birthday. Built on the Aventador Super Veloce chassis, complete with a powertrain giving it an advantage in lightness and a formidable 740 hp. With further tuning, the Centenario gleans nearly 20 more ponies from the V12 and loses 11 pounds, while gaining significant downforce and cooling from its body design. Every exterior detail was designed with function in mind to manage drag and improve downforce. Making history of its own, the Centenario is the first Lamborghini to employ rear-wheel steering. With only 20 models in the works and a price tag of $1.9 million each, Forza Horizon 3 will likely be the only place most of us will get a chance to experience it.
The Lamborghini Centenario LP 770-4 features an uptuned version of the 6.5L (6,498 cc) naturally aspirated V12 engine found in the Lamborghini Aventador, codenamed L539. The engine now produces 759 hp (770 PS; 566 kW), while the torque output of 509 ft·lb (690 Nm) is still the same. The car also still features a seven-speed single-clutch semi-automatic transmission like in the Aventador. Unique to the car is its use of four-wheel steering.
The Lamborghini Centenario LP 770-4 is capable of doing 0-62 mph in 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 217 mph (350 km/h), same as the Aventador.
The Lamborghini Centenario LP 770-4 features excellent all-round stats, acceleration, and launch, thanks to its all-wheel-drive drivetrain, making the car easy to drive. Conversely, while having the highest power output of all Lamborghini cars in the series, the Centenario is the second best-performing road-legal Lamborghini car, as the Veneno has an edge in acceleration and braking especially because the Centenario, weighing 3527 lb (1600 kg), is heavier than the Veneno, weighing 3373 lb (1530 kg). On the other hand, though, the Centenario's top speed is higher, with 231 mph (371 km/h). Both cars handle very similarly, with an average cornering force of 1.29 g.
