Lamborghini’s next exclusive limited-edition model to arrive at next year’s Geneva show

Earlier this year, Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann revealed to Digital Trends that a brand new model will be shown at the Geneva Motor Show that will open its doors next March. A recent report coming out of England sheds insight into what we can expect to see from the Raging Bull in a couple of months.

Tentatively called Centenario, Lamborghini’s next limited-edition model will take the form of a sleek coupe built to celebrate the 100th birthday of Ferruccio Lamborghini, the man who, in 1963, founded the company that bears his name. It will most likely be capable of reaching 60 mph from a stop in a brisk 2.5 seconds because it will use an evolution of the Aventador’s naturally-aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine tuned to provide all four wheels with at least 760 horsepower. Performance will be further enhanced by the widespread use of advanced, lightweight materials such as carbon fiber.

“It is a car which is covering the best balance between tradition and innovation,” hinted Lamborghini’s top executive, “because we are speaking about performance, design, weight, aerodynamics and also the chassis in terms of adaptability control.”

Shooting down recent rumors, Winkelmann told British magazine Auto Express that it would be “unthinkable” to stuff the Aventador’s V12 in a Huracán body. The Centenario won’t be billed as a member of the Aventador family, either, because it will wear a brand new look that insiders who have seen the car suggest is markedly softer than the angular design language that has influenced members of the Lamborghini lineup for decades. That said, the Centenario isn’t expected to be a full-on retro-styled model, so enthusiasts hoping to see the 2006 Miura concept make the jump to production shouldn’t hold their breath.

Lamborghini will allegedly make just 20 examples of the Centenario. The highly exclusive car has already been shown to prospective owners, enthusiasts, and collectors in the United States and abroad, so it’s not too far-fetched to assume it will be sold out when it’s unveiled next March in Geneva, in spite of a price tag that undoubtedly carries seven digits.
