A couple of days ago during the Monterey Car Week Lamborghini’s CEO Stephan Winkelmann confirmed a new supercar — or rather, hypercar — coming at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.
On that occasion, the new car was reported to be a one-off or a very limited edition such as Veneno. Now, a French website, TF1, bring us more information about this special raging bull, including its name.
According to the website, the brand new Lamborghini will be called Centenario in honor to the 100th anniversary of Ferruccio Lamborghini, founder of the raging bull brand, which was born in 1916 — and died in 1993.
The Lamborghini Centenario LP770-4, like Veneno, will be based on the Aventador LP700-4, but it won’t be that extreme — in all aspects.
The price will be over 1 million euro, but anyway, is much less than the insane Veneno price tag (€ 3.3 million). It is coming limited in 20 units worldwide available only as coupé and, too, with a design much less insane than the Veneno.
The Lamborghini Centenario LP770-4, as you can notice, is powered by the well-known 6.5-litre naturally-aspirated V12 engine,but upgraded and developing 770 metric horsepower (759 bhp), 70 hp more than the standard Aventador and just 20 hp more powerful than the brand new Aventador SV.
With this extra power, the raging bull will accelerate from zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) in about 2.7 seconds and exceed 217 mph (350 km/h) at top speed.
