It seems Lamborghini's rumored Centenario LP 770-4 will in fact be based on the Huracan, not on the bigger Aventador as originally believed.

A private unveiling did take place a few weeks ago at Pebble Beach and according to one of the people who attended the event, the ultra-exclusive Lamborghini will be based on the Huracan and will utilize the Aventador's V12 6.5-liter normally aspirated engine further tweaked to deliver 770 PS (566 kW) delivered to both axles.

In order to accommodate the larger engine, it is believed the special Huracan will come with an elongated wheelbase wrapped around in a bespoke and aggressive body that won't be as outrageous as some other recent limited-run Lamborghinis such as the Aventador-based Veneno.

We remind you the new special model from Sant'Agata Bolognese has received this moniker since it will celebrate 100 years since company founder's Feruccio Lamborghini birth on April 28, 1916. The performances are expected to be mind-blowing as the Huracan-based Centenario will do the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 2.8 seconds before topping out at more than 215 mph (346 km/h).

While the previous rumor referred to a starting price of more than €1 million, this time we hear the Centenario LP 770-4 will cost €1.75 million. Only 20 units are planned for production and all of them are going to be coupes.

A public reveal is set for March next year at the Geneva Motor Show.
