Lamborghini has announced plans to reveal a "special" model sometime next year to celebrate 100th years since company founder was born.

Ferruccio Lamborghini was born on April 28, 1916 and now we have official word from Sant'Agata Bolognese that a special model is in the works to celebrate 100th years since his birth. The announcement was made by Maurizio Reggiani, the man in charge of Lamborghini's research and development who said the new model will "surprise" everyone and it will fit in the company's strategy to roll out high-priced, limited-run models.

Originally it was believed the anniversary model would be based on the Aventador, but lately we've been hearing it will actually be derived from the Huracan. It seems Lamborghini has plans to squeeze in the Aventador's V12 engine in the Huracan and to do that they will have to stretch the wheelbase. The normally aspirated engine will be further tweaked to develop a rumored 770 PS (566 kW) sent to both axles and this should be enough for a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in 2.8 seconds and a top speed in excess of 215 mph (346 km/h).

Chances are the ultra-exclusive Lamborghini will be called Centenario LP 770-4 and apparently only 20 coupes are programmed for production, with pricing kicking off at approximately €1,750,000.
