Lamborghini is bringing a new supercar to next week’s 2016 Geneva Motor Show to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of company founder Ferrucio Lamborghini this year. The car will be built in a limited run, just like the previous Veneno and Sesto Elemento special editions, and it has just been teased in a video.
Unfortunately, we don’t see any of the car in the short clip. Instead, we get a few glimpses of Ferrucio Lamborghini as well as the message that “perfection needs time.”
The car is expected to be called a Centenario LP 770-4, which would suggest it will come with 759 horsepower (770 metric hp) and an all-wheel-drive system. We know it is based on Lamborghini’s Aventador platform and some patent drawings that recently surfaced likely reveal the design.
Around 20 examples of the Centenario are planned and all of these are likely accounted for as the car has already been shown to prospective buyers. Insiders have said the car will sport a unique body, one that is beautiful and not as extreme as other Lamborghini specials like the aforementioned Veneno and Sesto Elemento. That seems to be the case looking at the design shown in the patent drawings.
Stay tuned for the debut at the Geneva Motor Show, which starts March 1. In the meantime, you can learn about some of the other cars set to appear via our dedicated hub.
