Back in September, rumors about Lamborghini unveiling a rather unusual version of the Aventador began. This Aventador was supposed to be a GT with two small rear jump seats, a sign that Lamborghini may be following along the lines of Porsche by trying to expand their sports car lineup to include non-traditional models. However, during the recent Sao Paulo Motor Show, Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann confirmed that the company does have big plans for the Aventador , but that a 2+2 version of the super car will not be launched.
In an interview with Autocar, Winkelmann said that an extended Aventador with two small seats in the back was indeed being considered, but it hadn’t progressed beyond the drawing board. He also confirmed that there were lots of ideas for the Aventador, but not "all the ones that have been suggested are true."
In the near future, we should expect to see the roadster version of the Aventador, as well a more powerful version of the V12 engine, but a few other versions are being developed using the company’s latest bespoke program.
Is Lamborghini playing the game of denial until the 2+2 Aventador is launched or can we remain calm about Lamborghini’s true sports car future? Let us know what you think in the comments section.
