The good: the 770 HP Lamborghini Centenario can do 0-60 in 2.8 seconds and maxes out at 217 MPH.

The bad: the company only made 20 coupé and 20 roadster models, and all 40 of the $1.9 million, limited edition whips are already spoken for.

The ugly: about this car? Nothing.

Unveiled at the Geneva Car Show and built to celebrate the upcoming 100th anniversary of the Italian auto giant’s founder Ferruccio Lamborghini, the Centenario boasts a 6.5-liter V12, an aerodynamic carbon fiber body, a touchscreen that provides Internet-powered infotainment to occupants and a rear wing that extends at high speed to provide added downforce and stability.

“It is the most fitting tribute to Ferruccio Lamborghini in his centenary year: a man who created an exceptional brand, believed that anything was possible, and produced extraordinary, iconic cars,” says Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann. “The Centenario is a super sports car for Ferruccio Lamborghini and the future he and we believe in today.”

As far as birthday presents go, this one certainly takes, and beats, the cake.

Note bene: Just because you missed out on the Centenario, it doesn’t mean you can’t have one of Lamborghini’s new Huracán Avios. The company is making 250 of the 610 HP, fighter jet-esque models and they’re scheduled to hit showrooms in the summer of 2016.
