LEAKED! – This is probably the new Lamborghini Centenario

Patent images normally do not do justice to the cars they represent. This is most certainly the case of the Lamborghini Centenario, a car created in very limited numbers, and already sold out, to pay an homage to the 100th year of the brand’s founder, Ferruccio Lamborghini, who would turn 100 in April 28 if he was still alive. The brand itself is still quite new: created in 1963, it is just 2 years since it became 50 years old.

The Centenario LP770-4 is said to have been created over the Aventador platform. It will be lighter than Lamborghini’s flagship, as well as more powerful, generating 566 kW. Its top speed is believed to be beyond 350 km/h and it would be able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in a mere 2.7 s.

There will be only 20 units of the car and all of them have already been sold to loyal Lamborghini customers. They have also been introduced to the car before everyone else, so the final shape of the car will be a surprise only to the ordinary mortals like ourselves. Well, not even to us, if these patent images really refer to it. But what else would they refer to, right?
