The upcoming Lamborghini Centenario will be based on the Huracan and it will be debuting at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, next March.
Lamborghini is currently working on yet another special supercar, the so-called Centenario LP770-4, but this will not be based on the flagship Aventador, as originally believed, but on the more affordable Huracan. According to a recent report, the future Lamborghini Centenario will be using the 6.5 liter naturally aspirated V12 engine from the Aventador and it will drop the current 5.2 liter V10 from under its hood.
In order to accommodate the larger unit, the special version of the Lamborghini Huracan is said to get a longer wheelbase. The engine is expected to produce approximately 770 HP (566 kW), which will be sent to both axles through either the dual-clutch transmission available on the Huracan or the single-clutch one from the Aventador.
The body of the future Lamborghini Centenario will be completely different than the one of the Huracan and this should be very aggressive, just like the other limited-run vehicles made in Sant’Agata Bolognese. The performance of the new exotic model is going to be mind-blowing as this is expected to be able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 2.8 seconds and to reach a top speed of 346 km/h (215 mph). The starting price of each one is believed to stand at 1.75 million euros and only 20 units are going to be put into production, all of them being coupes.
