Lamborghini’s New Supercar Rumored To Be Called HyperVeloce
Lamborghini doesn’t build any cars that are boring, but when it comes to limited-production models, the raging bull turns out some seriously wild stuff. The latest rumors say that another one is on the way, and that it will be called the HyperVeloce. It’s not a very creative name, but like the Reventon or Veneno, it will be a bold restyling for an existing Lambo model. In this case, Lambo will take the 2015 Lamborghini Aventador SuperVeloce, bump the power up to 800 horsepower and give it some kind of a new body. It will reportedly be unveiled at Pebble Beach in just a couple of weeks, but this will be an invite-only affair, and us lowly members of the public probably won’t see it until Frankfurt next month.
Nothing is known about the price, and previous limited-production models have varied quite a bit. The 2008 Lamborghini Reventon went for $1.5 million, while the 2013 Lamborghini Veneno went for $4.5 million. But this is probably related to the fact that Lamborghini made 20 Reventon units and only five of the Veneno. Rumor has it that there will be 20 HyperVeloce coupes and 10 roadsters, although this isn’t necessarily a price indicator.

Why it matters
What will be more interesting to see than the price is the styling of the new model. Lamborghini often uses these models to experiment with different design themes, and sometimes these make it into the more mainstream production models. A good example would be just how many of the Reventon’s styling cues were used for the Aventador. It is therefore possible that the HyperVeloce will be something of a preview of whatever is to come after the Aventador.
