The stunning Lamborghini Centenario is celebrating its launch with a new video.

Having made its debut earlier this year at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, the Lamborghini Centenario is being showcased on video for the first time. The Centenario was developed to honor what would have been the 100th birthday of its founder Feruccio Lamborghini and features a naturally aspirated V12 engine pumping out 770 horsepower. And thanks to this video, you can hear just how outstanding it sounds, although we sure wish Lamborghini put in more sound clips.

Limited to just 40 units, 20 coupes and 20 roadsters, the Lamborghini Centenario was already sold out by the time it debuted in March, despite its $1.9-million price tag. But when it comes with the claim that the Centenario has the most powerful engine Lamborghini has ever made, it’s not a surprise Lambo enthusiasts scooped it up as quickly as possible. It is built on a carbon fiber monocoque and covered in a gloss carbon fiber body, giving it a dry weight of just 3,351 pounds. The result is a zero-to-62-mph time of 2.8 seconds while boasting a top speed of 217 mph.
