The Lamborghini Centenario LP770-4 was introduced to the public in early March in Geneva, the car shown was number 0 of 20, just as with the Veneno a few years ago there will be a limited number of Centenario sold to the public (20 to be exact) and the number 0 will remain property of Automobili Lamborghini SpA.
The base price of a Lamborghini Centenario LP770-4 was set at €1,750,000 before taxes, however the Geneva show car had a rather expensive option fitted ... a €300,000 clear carbon fiber body, combining both glossy and matte finished carbon fiber being visible everywhere while details on the front bumper, side sills and rear diffuser received a yellow finish for added contrast ... however those 20 fortunate people that put their order in already can select from any shade possible, including the entire Ad Personam list.
Note that in addition to 20 Centenario Coupé as seen in Geneva there will also be 20 Centenario Roadster built, no styling on that one has been released yet, but the same options are available on the open top version ... painted body or clear carbon fiber body, and I guess the 0/20 Roadster will also remain at the factory in the end.
So let's take a look at how the Lamborghini Centenario would look in some of the more popular shades that have been leaving the factory doors on both the Aventador and the Huracán... a bright orange metallic like Arancio Argos would look amazing on the Centenario, just as Giallo Orion would by the way.
But how about the now popular Blu Nova or Blu LeMans shade, even combined with a red livery that would look really amazing, almost a super hero car in fact ... while a full black finish would be more suited for another comic book hero ... or Verde Ithaca ... and why not that stunning Rosso Bia shade we've seen on the Aventador Superveloce?
Come to think about it ... the Centenario is celebrating the 100th birthday of Ferruccio Lamborghini, you could order your very own Centenario in that special 30th Anniversary lavender metallic shade called Lambo Thirty ... or the Verde Artemis shade used on the Murciélago 40th Anniversary edition and combine that with titanium finished wheels.
Dark shades might look on the new Lamborghini, like Blu Achelous or the very special Verde Ermes shades, rather uncommon but still very special paint finishes just like the still popular Grigio Telesto also seen on the Murciélago Super Veloce China Edition.
Brighter shades like Oro Elios are another possibility to set your Centenario apart from the others, I do hope at least one would be ordered in Blu Glauco, a very special shade of blue, while Blu Caelum wouldn't look too bad either ... or perhaps Verde Scandal ... now that would be really special.
However, if you really want to get something special on an already very exclusive car you should go for a two tone finish ... like Arancio Argos with clear carbon fiber ... I've been told you can only order the entire car in carbon fiber, or the entire car painted ... but nothing is keeping an owner of a clear carbon fiber car to wrap parts of the car to get a two-tone look.
