Lamborghini’s upcoming hypercar to be called Centenario LP 770-4 image

Programmed to make its debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, the limited edition hypercar will not be called HyperVeloce as previously reported, but Centenario LP 770-4.

The name has been chosen to mark the 100 years since the birth of Ferruccio Lamborghini back in April 28, 1916, according to the French website TF1.fr.

The hypercar will be powered by a 759 HP version of the 6.5-liter V12 engine also found in the Aventador SV and regular Aventador models, as the name also suggests it. The new model is said to reach 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.7 seconds, with a top speed of more than 350 km/h due to an upgraded engine and the four-wheel drive system. Being built in 20 units, the Centenario LP 770-4 will actually make the Aventador SV, which was launched in 600 units, and Aventador SV Roadster produced in 500 samples, look like mass-produced cars, not the case though.

Due to a more track-focused aerodynamic package, the Centenario LP 770-4 will be different from the regular Aventadors, but less extreme than the Veneno though. The hypercar is reportedly about to cost around  €1 million and is expected to be launched in April 2016, in order to celebrate the Ferruccio Lamborghini’s centenary.

Another report in April announced that a new Lamborghini hypercar would be introduced at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show and that chances are this would be a hybrid. Rest assured, we will all keep our eyes on the 2016 Geneva Motor Show to see what surprises Lamborghini has in store for us!
