Spy Shots: An Early Look at the Lamborghini Aventador’s Successor

First plug-in hybrid Lambo would be more angular and aggressive-looking than its predecessor

In June 2021, the Italian supercar marque, Lamborghini, bid goodbye to its V-12-powered Aventador with a limited-run Ultimae model. Since then, anticipation for the replacement has building, but it seems like the waiting period is slowly ending. Spy photographers had the chance to snap a few photos of the upcoming electrified Aventator’s successor, and the “spaceship”-like look continues as the CEO promised.

Update 7-7-2022: We’ve added even more images of the Aventaor’s successor to the gallery below!

You cannot mistake a Lamborghini, even when it is wearing camouflages all over its body. The spy images of the prototype display an angular design language, which the Sián inspires. While most body parts remain heavily covered, the headlight module and the massive side vents are visible. Though the actual headlights are dummy units, we predict that the LED DRLs would be similar to the Sián’s. As Lamborghini confirmed, the Aventador successor will be an all-new model with a new design, powertrain, and it could be based on a new platform.

From the sides, the upcoming Lamborghini supercar prototype is identical to its predecessor because of the side intake vents and the roofline. However, the dimensions could be a bit longer than the Aventador. In addition, the wheels are new and wear Bridgestone tires. The rear is where the prototype shows a lot of new design details. Ignore the fake taillight stickers, but concentrate on the upper portion, where the Y-shaped LED taillights are visible. Also, the quad-exhaust tips are placed higher this time, flanked by the taillights, and the lower bumper has a wedge-shaped design for increased airflow.

The heart of the matter would be a newly developed V-12 engine, which will be mated to a plug-in hybrid system for better acceleration while keeping emissions and economy in check. The power figures will be somewhat close to 800 horsepower and 550 pound-feet of torque. We guess that Lamborghini would target Ferrari’s SF90 Stradale with its upcoming PHEV supercar.

The Aventador’s successor will debut sometime in 2023 and be followed by a hybridized Urus. However, the supercar is in its initial testing phases, so expect a few more sightings before the production-spec supercar uncovers.
