A photo of the Lamborghini Centenario has leaked ahead of its official debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.

Built to celebrate 100 years since the birth of the Italian automaker’s founder, Feruccio Lamborghini, the Centenario will officially bow next week in Switzerland. Rumor has it that the Centenario LP770-4 is based on the Aventador SV but features 770 horsepower sent to all four wheels from a 6.5-liter V12 engine. That means the special edition model has 50 more ponies than the Aventador SV, giving it a zero-to-62-mph of 2.7 seconds and a top speed of 215 mph.

And now that a photo of the production Lamborghini Centenario has leaked, it confirms the design patent images is for Lamborghini’s newest model.

    Looks great, really nice details--there's a heavy filter on the image so we'll see what it actually looks like under regular lighting conditions.
