Lamborghini had announced that they would build a car to celebrate the 100th birth anniversary of Ferruccio Lamborghini. Supposed to be the LP770-4, Lamborghini has divulged no details about this car except for the 1.64 million GBP price tag (about Rs 15crore). But if you are a Lamborghini connoisseur and you have a tractor full of money, you would certainly want this one to be the trophy of your garage. No wonder that the only 40 units to be produced have been sold out already.
If we are to believe what Lamborghini has said, this will be an all-out attempt by their engineers to build a car that is futuristic not only in terms of looks but technology too. The previous special editions like the Veneno, the Reventon and the Sesto Elemento are a testimony to what Lamborghini can achieve. The car, not yet named officially, will get the 6.5-litre V12 from the Aventador tuned to churn out more power than the current 690bhp.
Built around a carbon-fibre tub chassis, the Centenario - as some call it, will be available in two body styles – the coupe and the convertible, 20 units apiece. The car will be showcased at the Geneva Auto Show, later this year. 2016 also marks the 50th anniversary of Lamborghini’s first sportscar, the Miura.
