The Italian thoroughbred supercar marquee is now into the teasing game for its latest special edition model – the Centenario – set to debut during the Geneva Motor Show next week.
We’ve been watching the developments of the Aventador-based Centenario limited series for a while now and we’re eagerly awaiting the Tuesday world introduction during the Swiss event. The same as Bugatti with its Chiron reveal, Lamborghini is also watching the clock as it passes the hours and days towards the Geneva reveal. And the brand from Sant’Agata Bolognese has aptly named its new model “Centenario” because it will be celebrating a century since patron Ferruccio Elio Arturo Lamborghini was born. We have no sighting of the model to report from viewing the attached teaser video but we already know how it looks like thanks to those recently leaked patent images.
Sourced from the Aventador, the Centenario is a more down to Earth ultra-exclusive model than the Veneno and many people might finds this to be satisfying as the Veneno did look exaggerated. We have been tipped the model’s calling name will be the Centenario LP 770-4 which means it will have under the hood 770 PS (759 hp) and an all-wheel drive system. The reports are putting it in the big leagues, with the 62 miles (100 kilometers) per hour run done in just 2.7 seconds and the prowess to reach a top speed of more than 217 mph (349 km/h). Apparently production will be capped at 20 coupes and 20 roadsters with a cool fetching price of $2.38 million – and it seems all units have been spoken for in advance.
