Three months ago, Lamborghini revealed the Centenario LP770-4 at the Geneva Motor Show. Not a huge deal, especially as Volkswagen was in deep sh..

And a few days ago, the same car got an entirely different kind of debut, as the next Forza game was presented at E3. The Centenario played a major part in the trailer, one which is unlikely to be washed away by any "this is ugly" misgivings people have.

So, here we are again, looking at what $2.5 million will buy from the Italian exotic car makers. Yeah, it's still kind of weird-looking, but we've secretly thought the same thing about the Pagani Huayra. And while we are no the subject, the FXX K looks like some sort of wood-cutting power tool thanks ti its red paint.

Like the title says, the Centenario has been filmed at the Lamborghini Factory in Sant'Agata Bolognese. In a world where V12 supercars are a common experience, this one takes things to the next level.

The first layer offered by the Centenario is visual, as the vehicle is made entirely of carbon fiber you can see and touch (though almost nobody has done that). After you peel that away, you arrive at the aural experience of a V12 engine producing 770 horsepower.

While the 0 to 100 km/h of 2.8 seconds seems normal, the fact that it can go back to 0 in 30 meters is amazing. There are going to be 20 coupes and 20 roadsters, all of which have been sold even before the Geneva debut. And in case you are wondering, know that the Centenario name is meant to celebrate Ferruccio Lamborghini's 100th birthday.

The body has a mix of glossy carbon, yellow and satin carbon fiber, which yo may be able to see on the engine deck. While you are there, you might also want to check out the wing and how the taillights turn on and off.
