Lamborghini launched the Centenario to commemorate the 100th birthday of Ferruccio Lamborghini, the man who founded Lamborghini. A mere 40 units of the Centenario were made for sale in the world. Among these 40, 20 were coupes and 20 were roadsters. The mid-engine, all-wheel-drive car was sold out the moment it was announced and also was the first Lamborghini to get a rear-wheel steering system. If by now you have started to wonder that what is the reason behind all this history lesson, the video below by Master Butter holds the answer. Take a look at the video which shows a crazy yellow trio of cars making people jump out of their seats on the road.
The three cars in the video are a Lamborghini Centenario, a DC Design modified Mahindra Thar and another locally modified Maruti Suzuki Gypsy. The Gypsy has been modified on the lines of the DC modified Thar and also carries the same paint shade. In fact, all three cars here carry the same paint scheme which gives them a gang name – The yellow menace. The Lamborghini Centenario here looks quite cool and catches eyeballs wherever it goes. However, there’s a catch here, and a mighty one it is.
The Lambo here is not an actual car from Sant’Agata but a replica model that is based on the last-generation Honda Civic. We know that it is quite apparent that this is not a real Lamborghini but the mod guys who are behind this work have done a spectacular job at their level. It even gets an identical interior setup complete with switches and a high central tunnel. You can read more about this Lamborghini Centenario here. Moving on, let’s talk about the other two cars here which complete this trio.
Let’s talk about the DC Design Mahindra Thar first. It was launched back a couple of years ago and created an outcry from enthusiasts due to its design. While the design and aesthetics of the car are not so impressive, what makes the matter worse is that it is based on the Thar which is known for its macho looks. Also, this one does not come for cheap and costs quite a lot of money on top of the cost of a Mahindra Thar. DC has created some rather excellent designs to date and is a big name worldwide but this one is ought to be among the forgotten ones. To let you know, DC Design launched another Thar based modification called the hammer and that is quite an excellent mod job.
Next up is the Maruti Suzuki Gypsy that has been modified on the lines of the DC modified Thar here. It carries the same paint shade and the similarly designed body panels. This is probably the reason why it is getting so much attention when on the road. The top eyeball grabber here by far is, of course, the Centenario replica which had everyone stop in their tracks and take notice. Fake it till you make it, they said. We see that some of it is quite right too.
