Lamborghini has filed a design patent for a mysterious new model.
Lamborghini filed the design patent on October 16, 2015, but it was not published until today. Although very few details can be found in the design patent, it does hint that the Italian automaker is working on another model, and it could possibly be a special edition car, similar to the Sesto Elemento and Veneno.
Rumors have been swirling for quite some time now that Lamborghini will celebrate its 100th birthday by debuting a new supercar this year. Given the timing of the design patent’s publishing, we wouldn’t be surprised if the automaker showed up to the 2016 Geneva Motor Show in early March with the debut. The same rumors say that the model will be called Centenario LP770-4 and is speculated to use a long-wheelbase version of the Huracan while being outfitted with the 6.5-liter V12 engine used in the Aventador. If this turns out to be the Centenario LP770-4, expect production to be limited to under 20 units and it will pack more than 750 horsepower.
Luckily, we only have a couple more weeks to wait before the 2016 Geneva Motor Show kicks off to the media on March 1. Tune in to AutoGuide.com for live coverage of the event.
