Report – Lambo’s Centenario to represent “definition of a hyper car” image

The Geneva Motor Show is just around the corner and this is why all automakers are rushing to hint, tease and detail all of their upcoming novelties.

But of course one of the most anticipated models has to be the Lamborghini Centenario LP770-4, which is why the company’s research and development manager Maurizio Reggiani has taken some precious time to shed some light into the highly-anticipated exotic model. We are used to the Geneva Motor Show being the home to all of the world’s most exotic automakers and producers but we’re also getting used to Lamborghini joining that exotic roster with its limited series (and prohibitively expensive) models. As such, we’re eagerly awaiting to see what they have in store for us with the model that has been tasked to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Ferrucci Lamborghini’s birth. We know it’s based on the Aventador, comes packing 770 hp and all-wheel drive and will feature a bespoke design to match the wide array of lightweight components.

Now Reggiani has recently said in an interview “The Centenario is our definition of a hyper car.” Of course he refused to shed more light on his mysterious quote. But the rumor mill has been very active on this one and aside from the engine we also know it will pack a seven-speed ISR transmission in order to assist the new powertrain in having the car reach 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 2.7 seconds on its way to a maximum speed of more than 217 mph. Production is capped at 40 units – 20 coupes and as many convertibles, with a cost of 2.2 million euros.
