If French national TV network, TF1, ends up being dead on the money, we could very well be treated to Lamborghini’s next hypercar at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show next March. Dubbed the Lamborghini Centenario LP770-4 – and not HyperVeloce as suggested earlier – it will forgo the marque’s tradition of naming its models after notable fighting bulls to commemorate a century since the birth of its founder, Ferruccio Lamborghini, in 1916.

As its nomenclature might suggest, the Centenario LP770-4 will feature the same naturally-aspirated 6.5 litre V12 engine that powers the Aventador models, albeit tuned to deliver 770 PS. Drive will be channeled to all four corners, which should allow for a century sprint time of just 2.7 seconds. Top speed is expected to be in the region of 350 km/h.


Unfortunately, aesthetic hints surrounding Lamborghini’s next halo model continue to elude members of the media. What we do know, however, is that the Lamborghini Centenario LP770-4 will be produced in an extremely limited run of just 20 units, each expected to cost around 1 million euros (RM4.72 million).

Such an exclusive run will allow the Lamborghini Centenario LP770-4 to sit alongside the likes of the Lamborghini Reventon and Veneno, produced in only a total of 35 and 12 units, respectively. Following its supposed debut in Geneva next year, order books are expected to open in April.
