The Geneva Motor Show is only a few weeks away so Lamborghini Research & Development Director Maurizio Reggiani has revealed some new details about the highly-anticipated Centenario LP770-4.

Designed to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Ferrucci Lamborghini's birth, the limited edition model will be based on the Aventador and feature unique styling as well as an assortment of lightweight components.  Reggiani declined to elaborate but told Auto Motor und Sport "The Centenario is our definition of a hyper car."

As the name suggests, the Centenario LP770-4 will be powered by an upgraded version of the Aventador's 6.5-liter V12 engine.  It will produce 759 horsepower and be connected to a seven-speed ISR transmission which is backed up by a standard all-wheel-drive system.  This powertrain combination will reportedly enable the car to accelerate from 0-62 miles per hour in 2.7 seconds before hitting a top speed in excess of 217 mph.

Production will be limited to 40 units and half will be coupes while the other half will be convertibles.  The Centenario LP770-4 is slated to cost €2.2 ($2.4) million but unfortunately all the cars have already been spoken for.
