The Lamborghini Centenario will make its public debut in the UK at Salon Prive, one of the country’s most prestigious luxury supercar shows.

Built to mark the 100th birthday of Lamborghini founder, Ferruccio Lamborghini, the Centenario is the most powerful V12-engined Lamborghini ever made.

Producing 759bhp and combined with a lightweight carbon fibre tub, it will sprint from 0-62mph in a mere 2.8 seconds, and on to a top speed of 217mph.

Salon Prive co-founder David Bagley said: “It perfectly reflects Ferruccio Lamborghini’s passion for high performance without compromise and it combines a purity of design with engineering excellence.

“We’re immensely proud to premiere such an important car at Salon Prive this year.”

Production of the Lamborghini Centenario will be limited to a total of 40 examples – 20 coupes and 20 roadsters – all of which have been sold. A coupe iteration of the Centenario will be appearing at Salon Prive.

The luxury supercar show and Concours d’Elegance event is now in its 11th year, and will return to Blenheim Palace for the second year running in 2016 from September 1-3.
