According to UK publication Autocar, 20 coupes and 20 roadsters will be built, each based upon the current Aventador supercar, and each carrying a price tag of €2.2 million (about $2.4 million). Let that sink in for a moment. That’s for a new car–not some classic racer that Sterling Moss sneezed in one time.
The publication states that the celebratory supercar won’t be just a warmed-over version of the Aventador, however. It’s said to intensively feature carbon fiber in its construction, sport entirely different bodywork, and crank even more potential out of the flagship’s 6.5-liter V12. If that 759 horsepower figure does ring true, that will make it 20 hp more powerful than the current top-of-the-pile Aventador LP 750-4 Superveloce.
Interestingly, it may also be the most feature-dense Lamborghini built to date. Company CEO Stephan Winkelmann mentioned to the magazine that the car had been built with a focus on connectivity, as well as sustainability.
R&D chief Maurizio Reggiani reiterated, “this will be the first time we have put so much content into one special car.”
It does have big shoes to fill, though. The launch of the rarified supercar follows-up the brand’s other recent limited-production models, including the Lamborghini Reventon, Sesto Elemento, and the Veneno roadster and coupe (pictured). Stay tuned for more on the “Centenario” as the 2016 Geneva Motor Show inches closer.
