This week, Lamborghini celebrated the 100th birthday of the company’s founder, Ferruccio Lamborghini. The corporation’s quality cars have long been a status symbol for the wealthy. The Centenario is the commemorative vehicle that the luxury car company created to celebrate its longevity in the automotive industry. So, of course, the Centenario is pretty impressive. It’s a limited-edition vehicle, and is made almost entirely of carbon fiber. The car has 760bhp and makes its debut at the Geneva Motor Show. We’re pretty sure car enthusiasts from all around the world are anticipating the thrill of seeing the Centenario up close.
The deep gray car with yellow accents has a number of hidden features that actually make it a real-life superhero car. Although the actual color of the car is described as “gloss carbon”, buyers can customize the color if they want. Several aesthetic parts of the car are fully functional, including the wheel arches, side skirts, front splitter and rear diffuser. Since it’s so exclusive and only a few people will probably ever own the Centenario, Lamborghini is sure to get even more press once a celebrity or billionaire purchases one of these beauties. Here are 12 things you need to know about the 2016 Lamborghini Centenario.
12 It’s Got a 4-Wheel Steering System

1 The Wheel Arches Are The Defining Feature
Perhaps the most intriguing feature of the Centenario is the irregular front and rear wheel arches. The noticeable arches are a trademark feature for Lamborghinis, but the Centenario’s arches are made from matte carbon fiber and conceal airflow ducts. The ducts enhance the aerodynamic abilities of the vehicle. The wheels are PZero from Pirelli, and are specifically designed for rear-wheel steering. The spikes of the wheels are also accented with carbon fiber, and there are even mask ducts that extract hot air from the brakes. The Centenario also has a central-locking wheel. Basically, it’s one of the coolest cars ever.
