Will the Centenario bring in the Lamborghini founder’s centenary year?

Lamborghini have consistently surprised us with their ceremonious introduction of models at key hallmarks in the company’s illustrious timeline. This time we can expect more fireworks with the hundredth anniversary of founder Ferruccio Lamborghini. Speaking to Auto Express, Stephen Winkelmann, CEO of Lamborghini said that a new car launch at the 2016 Geneva International Motor Show was on the cards. “In terms of renderings, it is known to the customers already. It will be something like a coupe bodystyle.”

A major speculation hints at the car being the Lamborghini Centenario, which pretty much echoes the ceremonial aspect of the launch. The price of the Centenario, if it were to breathe its first in public at the auto show, wouldn’t be anything shy of the benchmark set by the Veneno. The latter was priced around the $4.5 million mark.

While the company doesn’t reveal more about what we can expect in the new model, one idea states that there could be development around the 12-cylinder engine of the Aventador. It is all about the wait now. The Geneva International Motor Show will take place in March and that is about the time we will know if the Italian giants have created a monster that drives 800 ponies.
