Default Lamborghini Celebrates Ferruccio's 100th birthday w/the Centenario LP770-4

To be unveiled in a few days Geneva.















Quote:
Lamborghini Centenario LP770-4 pictures leaked
► Patent filings of new Lamborghini
► Expected at Geneva show 2016
► Check out the Centenario LP770-4

Lamborghini is planning to reveal its most powerful supercar yet at the 2016 Geneva motor show and despite a tight ring of security these images – believed to show its design – have been revealed in a newly-published patent.

Just how powerful? Another leak gives that away. A trademark application filed in 2015 for the name ‘Centenario LP770-4’ tells us all we need to know. The car is being built to mark 100 years since the birth of Ferruccio Lamborghini, hence ‘Centenario.’ And that number refers to 770hp. That’s 759bhp...

Engine, specs of new Lambo Centenario

Power is expected to come from a tuned version of the existing Aventador’s 6.5 litre V12. It’s already been boosted to 750hp in the LP750-4 Superveloce (740bhp), so squeezing an extra 19bhp from it shouldn’t be too taxing.

As the ‘4’ in the name illustrates, that power will go down through all four wheels thanks to a drivetrain that’s based, along with the chassis, on that of the Aventador. But despite sharing the Aventador’s underpinnings, the Centenario has a style all of its own.

Like previous limited-edition, uber-expensive Lamborghinis – the Sesto Elemento, Veneno and Reventon spring to mind – the carbonfibre bodywork of the Centenario is unique to this model. Longer than the Aventador thanks to a stretched nose and tail, the impression is of a dramatically lower car.

The stretched shape suggests top speed is a priority and as you’d expect from what’s likely to be the fastest Lamborghini yet, there’s an overload of aero. From vanes and flip-ups on the front splitter to a multi-channelled diffuser at the back, it’s going to be a celebration of carbonfibre addenda from every angle. Shrinking violets need not apply.

In fact, the chances are that nobody should apply. Lamborghini is understood to have already been in touch with its wealthiest and most ardent fans, and the entire run of 40 cars – around 20 coupes will be followed by a similar number of roadsters – is believed to be accounted for. If you’ve got your order in, you can look forward to picking up the most sophisticated, powerful and fastest Lamborghini ever made.

A riot of carbon

Even these design patent images give away a surprising level of detail, hinting at that sophistication. The wheels, for instance, have carbon vanes added to their spokes, directing hot air away from the brakes. There’s also what appears to be an active rear wing, and the electronics are expected to be more complex than any of its predecessors.

The Centenario is expected to make its official debut at the Geneva show on 1 March 2016.

You couldn't even get into a gas station without breaking off the front overhang.

Probably the ugliest iteration of the Reventon/Aventador/Veneno styling so far. Will have to see show pics to make a final determination.

Dat humpback.

Front end sort of looks like when someone is really mad, but crying. Annnnnd it has a humpback.

Overall, looks good and I'm sure the details will be amazeballs in person.

All 20 coupes and 20 convertibles have been presold.

The limited-production Lamborghini Centenario revealed at the 2016 Geneva auto show celebrates the 100th birthday of company’s late founder Ferruccio Lamborghini. Priced at 1.75 million euros before tax (about $1.9 million), all 40 examples of the Centenario have been presold. Lamborghini will build 20 each of the coupe and roadster body styles.

Powered by the automaker’s 6.5-liter V-12 engine, the Lamborghini Centenario is rated 751 hp – making it the most powerful Lamborghini ever. The Centenario is up 11 hp from the Aventador SV, a car that it appears to share roots with. It’s also 11 hp more powerful than the even rarer Veneno. Redline on the naturally aspirated V-12 has been raised from 8,350 rpm to 8,600 rpm. With the Centenario’s claimed 3,351-pound curb weight and 4.35 pounds per horsepower, Lamborghini claims the limited-production car can hit 62 mph in just 2.8 seconds, and 186 mph in just 23.5 seconds. Top speed is said to be more than 217 mph.

“The Centenario is a car that perfectly combines tradition and innovation. It looks to the future while honouring the legend that is Ferruccio Lamborghini,” says Automobili Lamborghini President and CEO Stephan Winkelmann, in a release. “It is the most fitting tribute to Ferruccio Lamborghini in his centenary year: a man who created an exceptional brand, believed that anything was possible, and produced extraordinary, iconic cars. The Centenario is a super sports car for Ferruccio Lamborghini and the future he and we believe in today.”

In addition to the standard permanent all-wheel-drive system, the limited-production Centenario is the first model to feature the automaker’s new rear-wheel steering system. At low speeds, the rear wheels turn opposite of the front wheels, making it more nimble, while at higher speeds the rear wheels turn with the front wheels for increased stability and response. The rear-wheel steering features unique tuning in each of the car’s three driving modes (Strada, Sport, and Corsa).

Other performance bits include the automaker’s Independent Shifting Rod (ISR) gearbox, Lamborghini Dynamic Steering (LDS), and magneto rheological suspension.

The Lamborghini Centenario features a carbon fiber monocouqe wrapped in a carbon fiber body, which contributes to its relatively light weight and high torsional stiffness, according to the automaker.

That carbon fiber body also previews the Italian automaker’s new design language, which is said to demonstrate the company’s “commitment to ‘form follows function.’” Exterior aerodynamic details include finned inlets and large hood scoops to increase downforce on the front axle. Air flow is directed around and through the Centenario through ducts within the front headlight casing, ducts in the sideskirts, and around the wheel wells. Other air scoops are located on the roof as well as fins over the rear engine glass. The aerodynamic aides also help to improve cooling.

Exterior body panels feature exposed carbon fiber in a mixture of gloss (hood, scissor doors, and roof line) and matte finishes (front splitter, side skirts, wheel arches, and rear diffuser).

The irregular wheel arches are stuffed with 20-inch front and 21-inch rear forged and milled alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli PZero tires. The design of the carbon fiber-trimmed spokes on the central-locking wheels are said to mask the cooling ducts for the carbon fiber brakes.

Around back, the Centenario features full-width Y-shaped LED lighting and an active rear wing that extends up nearly 6 inches and up to 15 degrees for increased aerodynamic performance based on speed and selected driving mode.

Inside, a pair of carbon fiber sports seats features contrast stitching. The door panels are constructed from carbon fiber and Alcantara, while contrast stitching is used throughout the interior. Infotainment and connectivity tech includes a 10.1-inch color touchscreen with navigation, Apple CarPlay, internet access, and more. Built-in telemetry software records speeds, times, and lateral and G forces. A pair of interior cameras is optional. The front trunk is designed to hold two race helmets.

Owners of the 40 Lamborghini Centenario models will be able to specify exterior carbon fiber or paint colors, from the automaker’s bespoke Ad Personam personalization program. Deliveries of the presold models will begin this fall and continue throughout 2017.

Didn't initially care for the renderings but seeing it in "finished" form it looks awesome, love the design.
