Follow Joel

Earlier this month Lamborghini took the wraps off its latest supercar, the Centenario. Now for the first time we finally have a chance to hear what this special Lamborghini sounds like.

Spoiler alert: It's loud.

The powerplant is a naturally aspirated V-12 with 759 horsepower. Power is sent to all four wheels, and a new trick rear-wheel steering system is on board to increase agility and stability.

Performance is brisk with a 0-62 mph run of just 2.8 seconds and a top speed in excess of 217 mph. Lamborghini claims 186 mph will arrive in just 23.5 seconds, though compared to a Bugatti Chiron that doesn't seem very fast.

The Centenario will be a rare bull, as Lamborghini only plans to build a total of 40 units, split evenly between coupe and roadster. The price? A staggering 1.75 million euros (approximately $1.9 million).

If you're thinking about calling your accountant to see if this fits into your budget, don't bother. Like other Lamborghini special editions, you can bet all Centenario build slots were sold before the car was even revealed.

Since you're likely never going to see or hear one of these bulls in person, sit back, crank up your volume control, and enjoy the sweet sound of that naturally aspirated V-12 engine.

Note: For those that are impatient and want to get right to the revving, skip to the 2:50 mark in the video.
