Automaker’s 100th birthday surprise is almost here.
Shortly after hearing a rumor that Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann is heading to Audi’s Quattro division, comes an update on the low-volume hypercar that will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show. In a recent interview with Winkemann, Pistonheads received more information about the upcoming hypercar. While the supercar will celebrate the 100th anniversary of founder Ferruccio Lamborghini, it will not use a unique platform and will most likely be based on the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4.
When asked if the supercar would have its on unique platform, Winkelmann stated, “it won’t be unique. To do 20 cars we will always use the platform of one of our existing cars. But in terms of design, in terms of performance and in terms of innovation it will be a completely different car.” When pushed on the details about the platform, the outgoing CEO revealed that it will utilize the Aventador’s base. “Usually when we go into the very limited car numbers we pick the Aventador as the base,” stated Winkelmann. The upcoming hypercar will reportedly have a price tag of over $1 million.
