Since this is a tribute to Ferruccio Lamborghini, we expect the Centenario to feature a subtle design compared to the automakers other limited edition models so as to align with their founding father’s artistic preferences.
The 2016 Lamborghini Centenario LP 770-4 will be built on the Lamborghini Aventador platform and will most likely borrow most of its exterior features including its dimensions. According to our engineers’ depiction, we expect an organically redesigned model with Lamborghini’s recognizable signature look. At the front, we expect a couple of large air intakes that will flank a small grille located at the center.
Its headlights will feature a Huracan shape and will be LED illuminated. At the sides, there will be air intakes behind the doors and side windows to channel more cooling air to the massive power-train. At the rear, there will be a carbon-fiber wing to boost its aerodynamics. Details of its exterior styling will become clear once it is unveiled next year; be sure to come back for more.

As such, the interior will be covered with aluminum, steel, and premium leather materials rather than carbon-fiber and Alcantara. We also expect its two bucket seats to be more luxurious than sporty. There will also be a large HD multifunction screen in front of the driver. Keep it here for more information on the interior of this super car.
Engine Specs and Performance
According to rumors the 2016 Lamborghini Centenario LP 770-4 might feature a 6.5 L V-12 atmospheric Power-train similar to the one in the Aventador. As the name suggests the engine will produce 770 ps (760 hp). Surprisingly, it will produce this entire horsepower without the help from electric motors or turbos.
Power will be channeled to all wheels via a 4th-generation Haldex AWD system as well as the automaker’s single-clutch, seven speed transmission system. It will be hooked up with an inboard push-rod suspension system which will use adaptive magneto-rheological dampers.
