Listen to the Lamborghini Centenario V12 Roar in This Real World Driving Footage

While the Lamborghini Centenario certainly made an explosive appearance at the Geneva Motor Show, the Raging Bull's latest halo car couldn't help but put on a show while leaving the Swiss event.

The Centenario was caught on camera while exiting Geneva's Palexpo complex, which hosted the auto show, and getting inside a truck. While we've all seen the Sant'Agata Bolognese machine live or through media, the trick here is the soundtrack of the clip, which gives us a decent taste of the beast's V12 voice.

As it usually happens during such runs, those asked to play the delivery driver role know they have to refrain themselves from letting the cold engines of the cars show their true feelings and emotions. However, the guy handling the Centenario couldn't resist the temptation to dip his toes into the throttle a little bit, as you'll notice in the clip.

The 770 HP Centenario might have a naturally aspirated tech side that serves as a reminder we don't all have to go turbo nowadays, but its appearance is nothing less than an opinion splitter.

However, we are far from worried about the fate of Lambo's top model. The Italian automaker is expected to build 20 units of the Centenario, as well as an additional 20 units of the yet unrevealed Roadster version. Well, all of them have already found owners.

After all, the best way of celebrating Ferruccio Lamborghini's hundredth anniversary is to buy the car that was built with this particular purpose in mind, right?

We'll remind you 2016 also counts as the 50th anniversary of the Lamborghini Miura, so the Centenario might not be the last Lamborghini dream we get to see this year.

P.S.: Those of you who want to get the full Centenario aural treatment will have to wait for the first cars to be delivered. We're ready to bet the fresh owners won't lose time and take their new toys out where car spotters are waiting for them.
