Just 40 models will be made – 20 coupes and 20 roadsters, each costing around £1.7 million.

The Centario has been developed to commemorate Lamborghini founder Ferruccio Lamborghini's 100th birthday. The unique car has been bought by a customer, through the West London dealership. He has chosen to personalise the car with orange accenting and matte coloured roofline.

Other impressive features that make this car stand out are the carbon-fibre body panels and extremely futuristic styling that makes it look stealth like.

This car is very much performance orientated too, with a fully fledged 6.0-litre V12 engine that develops 770bhp and sends the car from 0-60mph in an eye-watering time of just 2.7 secs and on to a top speed of 217mph.

Inside it is very similar to its older sibling the Aventador, with a large 10.1-inch infotainment screen and carbon fibre trim. However the orange accenting continues in here too with matching seats and stitching.

The seats themselves are covered in alcantara material, as is the racing steering wheel.

This exceptionally rare car will remain at the showroom until its new owner takes it home on Tuesday, when it will hit the streets of the capital for the first time.
