And the Lamborghini Centenario gets that insane power output without cheating, aka turbochargers or a blower. This V12 is all motor, baby, and it puts out 770 horsepower—enough to send the car from zero to 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds. Zounds!


After rounds of patents, renders and fake reveals, we finally get to see the real-deal Centenario today at the Geneva Motor Show. Part of it, at least: right now there’s just this teaser video with one shot of the black and yellow car. As its name implies, it’s a 100th birthday present to founder Ferruccio Lamborghini.

But the video description from Lambo lists the power and speed, and it says 20 coupes and 20 roadsters will be made. And this:

The futuristic and essential design includes an extending rear wing providing more downforce at high speeds, the body is built entirely in carbon fiber with a monocoque and all other body parts and trims in carbon fiber.


Neat! I’m not entirely sold on the looks yet, but we haven’t seen much of it; it’s definitely more toned down than the Egoista or Veneno. Tasteful, even?

Update: Moments after I posted this, the video went private. Guess somebody at Lambo jumped the gun, huh?
