Could this be the Lamborghini Centenario LP770-4?

February 18, 2016

Patent images of an extraordinary Lamborghini have been found, with all clues suggesting it is the makings of the upcoming centenary model known as the Centenario LP 770-4 (name not yet official).

Lamborghini boss Stephan Winkelmann has confirmed there is a special model coming that will help celebrate the company’s founder’s 100th birthday. He has said the model will be a “completely different” vehicle to any other in the showroom.

Well, this certainly looks completely different to any other showroom model. In fact, it looks different to most cars. The digital plans show an extremely low-profile body with a spade-like front end, leading up almost in a straight line through the windscreen and to the roof.

The images, first picked up by Automoto in France, also show a racing-like rear diffuser apparatus that seems to blend in with the underside of the car and form part of the side skirts and even the front lip.

As far as we know the Cententario, named in accordance with the 100th birthday of Ferruccio Lamborghini, will be powered by a 6.5-litre V12 engine producing 567kW (770PS). This will make it the most powerful Lambo production car, and as such, 0-100km/h is expected to take around 2.5 seconds.

It’s understood just 40 examples are being planned for production, and apparently all have already been spoken for with some of the company’s most loyal clients already said to have snapped them up.

The special model will be unveiled in full at the Geneva show, which opens its doors to media on March 1.
