2017 Lamborghini Centenario | 2016 Geneva Motor Show | Beauty-Roll

Lamborghini unveiled its new Centenario supercar today at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.

The uber-aggressive, carbon-fiber-clad beast is a celebration of company-founder Ferruccio Lamborghini's 100th birthday.

The Centenario is also the most powerful road car in company history.

Under the hood you'll find a naturally aspirated 770 horsepower V-12 engine. It's the most extreme version of Lambo's iconic V-12 that has ever been deployed in a road car.

According to Lamborghini, its founding father's 100th birthday present is capable of blitzing the run to 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds with a top speed of around 217 mph.

"The Centenario is a car that perfectly combines tradition and innovation. It looks to the future while honoring the legend that is Ferruccio Lamborghini," Lamborghini president and CEO Stephan Winkelmann said in a statement.

"It is the most fitting tribute to Ferruccio Lamborghini in his centenary year: a man who created an exceptional brand, believed that anything was possible, and produced extraordinary, iconic cars."

In addition to the monster V-12 motor, the Centenario's body is fully decked out in lightweight carbon fiber. As a result, the new Lambo tips the scales at a relatively lithe 3,351 pounds.

The new Lambo also features an extensive aero package which includes a deployable rear spoiler and a massive underbody diffuser. The car is also equipped with four-wheel steering which Winkelmann claims will improve agility and stability.

Inside the Centenario, Lamborghini continues the carbon fiber theme with the material heavily used for styling accents. The cockpit is very driver-centric with a business-like digital racing gauge cluster displayed prominently. The center stack is dominated by a massive vertically oriented connected touchscreen infotainment system. So when the adoring masses swarm to take pictures of your car, you can sit in comfort and surf the web or use Apple CarPlay.

A total of 40 Centenarios will be built — 20 coupes and 20 roadsters.

All of this innovation and tradition comes with a steep price — $1.9 million. But that's a mere footnote at this point, because all 40 cars have already been sold to "those who are close to the Lamborghini brand."

The Centenario is also likely to be the last significant Lamborghini to be introduced under Winkelmann's highly successful 11-year run as the supercar maker's head honcho. Later this month, former Ferrari F1 boss Stefano Domenicali will takeover as Lambo's new CEO. Winkelmann will return to Lamborghini's parent company, Audi, to leads its high performance Quattro division and over see its S and RS model lines.
