As you may have noticed, a lot of hyper-car news has dropped today due to the fact that perhaps a quarter of this country’s wealth is hanging out in Northern California this weekend for the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. The latest high dollar supercar to make its debut is the Lamborghini Cententario Roadster. Its sibling, the Cententario coupe made its debut earlier this year at Geneva. It then made its American debut at the Petersen Automotive Museum before it spent a week at E3 to celebrate being the cover car for Forza Horizon 3.
Back then I heard rumors that in addition to the 20 Cententario coupes that would be produced, 20 more drop tops would be made available as well. Turns out that was all true. What was also true was the word that all of them (coupes and roadsters) were already sold out. This is despite the fact that the Cententario Roadster has a price tag of just over $2.2 million dollars (2 million euros)!
I don’t have any official confirmation on this but I believe the Cententario Roadster may just be the 2nd most expensive drop top production car ever. The Bugatti Veyron roadster was about $1.4 million dollars, and LaFerrari Spyder also comes in at $1.4 million. The only roadster that I can think of with an MSRP to surpass the Cententario, is another Lamborghini. The Veneno Roadster started at a whopping $4.5 million dollars (which is probably why only 9 were ever produced).
Unlike the coupe, the Cententario Roadster is not naked carbon fiber but instead sports a matte sliver color Lamborghini calls “Argento Cententario” which is exclusive to the roadster. Beyond the missing roof and the custom color, the Roaster is mostly the same as the coupe (if not a touch more expensive).
Its hard to imagine that there are 20 people in the world who had no problem with dropping a few million so that their hair could blow in the wind. Talk about career goals! Anyhow, if you want to get a better look at the Cententario Roadster, just click on any of the thumbnails for a larger photo to drool over.
