Lamborghini recently began shipping out the new Centenarios to those lucky enough to get their hands on one. With only 40 built, 20 of them are coupes and the remaining 20 are roadsters. The coupes finished being delivered, so now the first Lamborghini Centenario Roadster built was recently shipped to California.
