Lamborghini Centenario - styling revealed ahead of Geneva motor show

The Lamborghini Centenario has been photographed and published ahead of the Geneva motor show, on Italian photographer's social media page. The images depict the full styling of the limited-run car.

The £1.64 million Centenario is due for its official debut at the Geneva motor show, but the image shows the car in full. The image follows the discovery of patent images, filed in October 2015, which reveal the design of the car from multiple angles.

From the patent images, the car appears to feature styling that builds upon that of the Huracan, with the archetypal wedge-shape and a blacked-out roof. Long overhangs extend in front and behind the wheels, to incorporate the slim front-end and rear diffuser.

The rear light clusters are incorporated into a full-width light bar with Lamborghini’s trademark chevron light motifs at the end of the bar, with three central exhausts above an extreme diffuser, which extends from below the car to behind the light clusters. Louvres shroud the rear windscreen – another typical Lamborghini feature.

It is believed that a tweaked version of the 690bhp 6.5-litre V12 also used in the Aventador will be employed, albeit in a 759bhp guise for the Centenario. In spite of this, more specific details are under strict wraps, and aren’t expected to be revealed until the car’s Geneva show debut.

Only 40 Centenario models will be made – 20 coupés and 20 convertibles, and all have already found homes. The Centenario name isn’t officially confirmed yet, although Lamborghini boss Stephan Winkelmann revealed that a name has been decided upon.
