Patent images that are believed to be of the Lamborghini Centenario hypercar have been filed and published.

AutoGuide has discovered seven patent drawings from Lamborghini that were reportedly filed on October 16, 2015, but only officially published overnight, indicating that this vehicle might make its debut at the Geneva motor show at the end of this month.

Reports last year indicated that the Italian supercar maker will debut a limited-edition model at the event. Production will supposedly be limited to just 20 coupes, with pricing set to start from around a million euros ($1.6 million).

Power is believed to come from a version of the company’s 6.5-litre naturally aspirated V12 tuned to deliver 556kW or 770 metric horsepower.

Matched to a lightweight body constructed primarily out of carbon-fibre, the Centenario is said to be able to reel off the 0-100km/h standard in 2.7 seconds and hit a top speed in excess of 350km/h.

If the 2015 rumours prove to be accurate, the new car will be named Centenario LP770-4 and will honour the hundredth birthday of company’s founder, Ferruccio Lamborghini.

Lamborghini, who passed away in 1993, founded his eponymous car company in 1963 to take on the might of Ferrari.
