co­or­di­nated with elec­tronic dif­fer­en­tial con­trol and sus­pen­sion damp­ing sys­tem (SCM-E). Mov­ing to Sant'Agata Bolog­nese, the new spe­cial se­ries from Lam­borgh­ini pre­sented in Geneva is called Cen­te­nario and only 40 will be built: 20 Coupés and 20 Road­sters. But it’s too late to dream of buy­ing one new; they have al­ready all sold out at a price tag of 1.75 mil­lion eu­ros plus taxes. This car is ad­mired for her 770 bhp at 8,600 rpm with a power-to-weight ra­tio of only 1.97 kg/hp: ef­fi­ciency that trans­lates into per­for­mance: 350 km/h top speed, brak­ing from 100 km/h to zero in 30 me­tres and ac­cel­er­at­ing from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.8 sec­onds. McLaren has cho­sen to en­hance its range start­ing with the low­est and most com­pet­i­tive seg­ment, in­tro­duc­ing the 570 GT model, which em­pha­sizes greater sporti­ness but with­out for­get­ting the con­cept of “ev­ery­day su­per sports car." The new con­cept that in­tro­duces this hatch­back is a truly un­prece­dented hatch in car­bon fi­bre and glass that al­lows you to ac­cess the 220 litre "tour­ing deck", beau­ti­fully lined in leather to in­dulge fine lug­gage, which added to the front boot of 150 litres makes its over­all load ca­pac­ity more or less equiv­a­lent to that of a Golf VII. The LT 675 Spi­der, of an en­tirely dif­fer­ent phi­los­o­phy, is a gem that is the most ex­clu­sive open top ever pro­duced in Wok­ing, in a lim­ited edi­tion of 500 units, which sold out like hot cakes in just two weeks. Porsche aims to im­press by clev­erly down­siz­ing: two cylin­ders less on the new Cay­man 718 Boxster and Spi­der, re­plac­ing them with a tur­bine, and choos­ing, not by chance, a name that re­calls the leg­endary turbo ver­sion of the Porsche 718 of 1957. Four cylin­ders, there­fore, but still with pow­ers be­tween 300 (for the 2.0 litre) the 350 horse­power (for the 2.5), and an im­prove­ment in con­sump­tion that touches 13%. In­stead the new 911R re­mains faith­ful to the six-cylin­der boxer, a se­ries lim­ited to 911 spec­i­mens that dis­play some ex­clu­sive fea­tures that make it the light­est and most ag­ile in the range: to name but a few, amongst its finest de­tails are its roof in mag­ne­sium and the car­bon fi­bre wheel arches. But its en­thu­si­asts - who will rel­ish the whop­ping 500 horse­power from the same en­gine adopted by the GT3 RS - will have to give up air con­di­tion­ing, ra­dio and the rear seats in or­der to en­joy its weight of only 1,370 kilo­grams.
