Acquired by somebody from Hong Kong, this is one of just 20 examples of the 20 Centenario coupes manufactured by Lamborghini as a tribute to the centenary of its founder, Ferruccio.

The unit has about the same finish and features as the model used by Lamborghini to showcase the series at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show and is of course based on the Aventador. It trumps the latter’s appearance thanks to the use of extravagant depictions of carbon fiber, as well as a huge diffuser. The out of this world design with lots of glossy carbon fiber is matched by the tweaks performed by the Lamborghini engineers. This is of course a tribute to celebrate 100 years since company founder Ferruccio Elio Arturo Lamborghini was born – and both the 20 coupes and planned 20 roadsters have already been pre-sold at $2.4 million a pop.

The beating heart is the same naturally aspirated V12 engine, now taken to 770 hp (566 kW), which is the most for the company in terms of production cars. Tipping the scales at just 1,520 kilograms (3,351 pounds), the tweaked Aventador will propel itself like a space ship to 62 mph (100 kph) in 2.8 seconds, to 186 mph (300 kph) in 23.5 seconds and then to the maximum speed of 217 mph (350 kph). Keeping matters safe are equally impressive brakes – from 62 mph the carbon-ceramic setup needs 30 meters and from 186 mph just 290 meters.
