The Lamborghini Centenario Roadster shows off its form

Only 20 will be made

Pebble Beach has turned up another pricey supercar convertible in the shape of this, the Lamborghini Centenario Roadster.

It’s somewhat pricier than the Aston Martin Zagato Volante—at 2 million euros (P105.14 million) plus tax—but at least it’s rarer, with a mere 20 being built. You can stop scurrying for your wallet though, as all of these have been sold.

Over to Lambo boss Stefano Domenicali: “Centenario Roadster embraces the cutting edge characteristics of its coupe sibling, and embraces the freedom of a true open-top super sports car for a pure drive experience.”

The spec is as per the coupe. A 760hp naturally aspirated V12 provides lots of lovely, old-school, high-rev power, while four-wheel-drive and four-wheel-steering systems ensure it’s all deployed in a clever manner.

There’s also carbon aplenty—including for the whole monocoque—as well as some intensely clever aerodynamics and Lambo’s embracing of connectivity, with snazzy stuff like CarPlay, web radio and telemetry systems all onboard.

We reckon it looks a bit nicer than the hardtop, too, though that may just be its classily subtle color scheme we’re enjoying. Besides, we already know what the Lamborghini Centenario coupe is like to drive, and this Roadster version could possibly be better.
