About a month ago, a very hot rumor emerged onto the web about the launch of a Lamborghini HyperVeloce but it appears the car in question will be labeled Centenario as a way to celebrate 100 years since company founder Feruccio Lamborghini was born. The reveal will take place at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show set for March, just a month before the actual anniversary as Feruccio was born on April 28, 1916.
As expected, it seems the limited-run Centenario will be based on the Aventador supercar and will also be called LP770-4, meaning that its naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine will be pushed to a jaw-dropping 770 bhp delivered to an all-wheel drive system. According to the same report, the performances are going to be stellar as the 0-100 kmph is believed to take a mind-blowing 2.7 seconds which will make it 0.2s faster than the standard Aventador. As for the top speed, it will easily go beyond 350 kmph so it will be one of the quickest cars ever to wear the bull logo.
It is believed production will be capped at just 20 units and all of them are going to be coupes, despite the previous rumors saying that Lamborghini also plans on offering an additional 10 cars with a roadster body style as they did with the Veneno, another ultra-exclusive model from Sant’Agata Bolognese.
As for the price tag, the Centenario LP770-4 will reportedly cost more than €1 million (74.6 million INR) and we won’t be too surprised if the car has already reached sold out status since Lamborghini usually shows these limited edition models to prospect buyers before the proper reveal. The design won’t be as extravagant as with the aforementioned Veneno as Lamborghini has plans for a more tamed aerodynamic body.
