Ignition - - 1st Gear -

The Lam­borgh­ini Cen­te­nario, a one-off lim­ited edi­tion model (20 coupes / 20 road­sters) built to com­mem­o­rate the 100th birth­day of com­pany founder Fer­ruc­cio Lam­borgh­ini, has been cho­sen as the fea­tured cover car for Forza Hori­zon 3, the lat­est in­stall­ment in the rac­ing game fran­chise that will be re­leased on Xbox One and Mi­crosoft Win­dows plat­forms on Septem­ber 27. Based on the Aven­ta­dor, the Cenete­nario is pow­ered by a nat­u­rally as­pi­rated 6.5-litre V12 en­gine that pro­duces 770 horse­power and 509 lb-ft. of torque and is mated to a seven-speed du­al­clutch au­to­matic trans­mis­sion that drives all four wheels.

Mclaren Au­to­mo­tive has cel­e­brated the fifth an­niver­sary of the first car rolling off the pro­duc­tion line with another record-break­ing year. Op­er­at­ing prof­its in­creased to £23.5M ($40.57M CAD) – the com­pany’s third suc­ces­sive year of prof­itabil­ity - from rev­enues of £450.6M ($777.94M CAD), with rev­enue pro­jected to in­crease by 50 per cent over the next two years and dou­ble by the end of 2022. Cal­en­dar year 2015 also marked the fifth suc­ces­sive year of in­creas­ing global car sales to 1,654 cars, sup­ported by the launch of five new mod­els, in­clud­ing the 675LT Coupe and Spi­der, 570S Coupe, 570C Coupe, 570GT and track-only P1 GTR.
