Lamborghini Could Bring New Hypercar To Pebble Beach
In recent months we’ve busy trying to figure out what the upcoming 2015 Lamborghini Aventador SuperVeloce and 2016 Lamborghini Huracan Superleggera may bring to the table once they arrive in showrooms. We also learned that Lambo has put the Asterion hybrid on hold in order to focus on the Urus SUV. Meanwhile, the Italians were actually working on a new supercar which will be shown at Pebble Beach.
That’s the word from Motor Trend, which claims that Lambo’s new supercar will be a limited-edition model similar to the 2008 Lamborghini Reventon and 2013 Lamborghini Veneno, launched in 2008 and 2013, respectively. If this is true, we’ll be looking at yet another ultra-limited, ultra-expensive Lambo built in just a few units and sold for millions of dollars each. And speaking of looking, it seems we won’t actually see it at Pebble Beach, as Lamborghini plans to only offer a sneak peak to potential customers. A public debut could take place at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show this September.
Details as to what this new supercar might be about are scarce, but the aforementioned source claims it will be based on the Aventador SV and feature about 800 horsepower (60 horses more than the SV), a revised body with better aerodynamics, and weigh less than the already impressive SuperVeloce. Production will reportedly be limited to only 30 units (20 coupes and 10 roadsters) and cost at least $2 million.

Why it matters
Although Lambo declined to comment on the matter, such a supercar makes a lot of sense right now. Sure, it’s been only two years since the Veneno’s arrival, but the market has changed dramatically and limited-edition supercars have become increasingly popular with wealthy collectors. If the $4.5-million Veneno is any indication, Lambo would sell a batch of 30 special-edition cars in no time, no matter the sticker. All it takes is a distinctive design an engine more powerful than the Aventador SV’s.
However, I advise you take this rumor with a grain of salt until we get some sort of confirmation or at least get ahold of its name.
