  • This is the absolutely insane Lamborghini Centenario and my first drive to see what it's like! Visiting Manhattan Motorcars, let's discover the one-of-20 hypercar in full exposed carbon fibre before heading out into the concrete jungle to enjoy the surprisingly loud sounds of the V12.

    Thanks to Lamborghini Manhattan, you join me in the showroom to unveil the Lamborghini LP770-4 Centenario Coupe, one of only 20 units built alongside 20 Roadsters and one of only a handful presented in fully exposed carbon fibre bodywork. The car features a 6.5l naturally aspirated V12 that makes 770ps and 690nm which means 0-100km/h (62mph) in just 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 350km/h (217mph). The Centenario is part of Lamborghini's special series of products and incorporates some technology to the Aventador platform on which it is based that would later arrive onto the more series production models like the 4 wheel steering and large touchscreen controller interface.

    After pulling the covers back from the Centenario in the showroom, it's time to bring it thunderously into life and then maneuver the car outside to the streets to experience the drive. Immediately setting about squeezing the car through some immensely tight gaps left by trucks, the experience and drama of the car is noticeable instantly. From there despite not being able to push on due to being in the centre of New York City, it's still quite an experience to be behind the wheel of such a car as the Lamborghini Centenario.

    A huge thanks goes to the owner of the car for the opportunity to drive it and of course the invitation from Rob and the team at Manhattan Motorcars, who you can follow here:

    Thanks for watching, Tim

    The Lamborghini Centenario is dramatic, wild, crazy and everything that a Lamborghini hypercar should be. Thanks to Manhattan Motorcars I've discovered also what it's like to drive! You might be quite surprised... so join me now in the concrete jungle of New York City for the experience!

                Lamborghini in a nutshell:
                No children
                No wife
                No storage space
                No comfort
                Not a daily car
                Only fun

                        Centenario is a great car but I've been wondering, how much is the lamborghini aventador svj when you get it customized and bought at the factory? (Other than out of my pay range)

                          The steering wheel somewhat looks too high up and the van easily drives passed him.

Much better than Aventador, such a pity there are so few of them, they wasted such a great design for only 40 cars, damn. I doubt even Aventador successor will look this good
