Just eight Lamborghini Centenarios have been delivered since the car was introduced new less than a year ago. Three of which we've covered previously; the first example wore a unique orange and black finish, the second, a classic yellow and carbon fiber finish, while the third – a U.S. example – was completed in blue accents with a carbon fiber body through Lamborghini's Ad Personam program.
But the eigth Centenario is arguably more unique than the seven others before it. Taking delivery of the supercar was leading luxury group H.R. Owen in the U.K. The handsome Centenario wears a bare carbon fiber exterior with orange accents. It’s the first of its kind in the U.K., and the only example with the exclusive finish (so far).
The Lamborghini was delivered in South Kensington in the U.K., and will go on display at Lamborghini London for the duration of the Bank Holiday Weekend. The dealership worked closely with the client in facilitating the build, from conception to delivery.

Like all Lamborghini Centenarios before it, this exclusive supercar celebrates founder Ferruccio Lamborghini’s 100th birthday and costs a whopping $1.9 million. Power comes courtesy of a naturally aspirated V12 producing 759 horsepower (565 kilowatts), allowing it a sprint to 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in just 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 217 mph (349 kmh).
This example is one of just 40 that will be built worldwide, and one of just 20 coupes. It’s the fourth example that has been delivered so far, and the first in the U.K. The other three examples have been delivered to China, the United Arab Emirates, and the U.S.
Leading luxury dealer group H.R. Owen is welcoming the UK’s first Lamborghini Centenario at its world-famous Lamborghini London dealership on Saturday 27 May.
The eagerly anticipated supercar based on the Aventador celebrates Lamborghini founder Ferruccio Lamborghini’s 100thbirthday, with only 40 models being manufactured worldwide (20 coupés and 20 roadsters).
H.R. Owen’s coupé model will arrive in South Kensington to something of a fanfare, before going on display in the iconic showroom for the duration of the Bank Holiday weekend.
Lamborghini London earned the title of the number one Lamborghini dealer in the world in 2016, and its unrivalled brand stature enabled it to find the UK’s first Centenario a new home.
H.R. Owen Lamborghini was exclusively granted the privilege of working closely with its client in facilitating the process from the order to conception and finally the delivery of the car.
Thanks to the personalisation of bare carbon, coloured accents and a matte roofline, H.R. Owen’s wonderful example of Lamborghini at its finest is a truly unique piece. However, this isn’t a car just for a gallery or garage; its 770hp and 0-62mph time of just 2.9 secs will be being fully utlised by its owner who believes his cars are built to be driven.
After going on display for a mere matter of days and wowing visitors to the Lamborghini London showroom, the Centenario will relocate to its new home with H.R. Owen’s client before officially hitting the streets of the capital.
