Lamborghini to Celebrate a Birthday by Debuting New Supercar

1

Lamborghini will celebrate the 100th birthday of its founder by unveiling a new supercar.

Set to make its debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show in March 2016, the supercar is expected to be the most technologically advanced Lamborghini yet, combining the Italian automaker’s latest developments in engine and lightweight technology, aerodynamics and chassis control into one package. According to Lamborghini head of research and development, Maurizio Reggiani, “This will be the first time we have put so much content into one special car.”

Rumor has it that the model will sport the name Centenario LP770-4, but CEO Stephan Winkelmann is staying tight lipped, only confirming that a name has been already decided and will be revealed in due time.

Although unconfirmed, the model is speculated to use a longer wheelbase version of the Huracan while using the 6.5-liter V12 engine found in the Aventador. Power output has been increased to around 759 horsepower and you can expect to see some extreme styling on the model.

Like other special edition Lamborghini models, production will be limited to under 20 units.
