Spy photographers in Italy got a lucky break when a prototype for Lamborghini’s Aventador replacement on the side of the road, describing the car as seemingly broken down. The resulting pictures give us our most detailed look yet at the car’s well-hidden design.
We first saw the Aventador replacement back in December, but back then it was wearing a lot more camouflage. Judging by these spy shots the car’s body is a lot closer to the final product, only hidden by the funky camouflage wrap and a pair of fake taillight stickers at the rear to throw people off.
From what we can tell this car, which has yet to be named publicly, will borrow much of its design from the Terzo Millennio concept first shown back in 2017, using thinner headlights and lots of Y-shaped accents. There are a couple of features that also remind us of the extremely-limited-production Sián FKP 37.
Because the car was stranded photographers were able to get extremely close with the prototype, capturing some extremely detailed portions of the body and even parts of the engine bay which, unsurprisingly for a prototype, was essentially just a nest of unorganized wires.
Lamborghini hasn’t said exactly what sort of powertrain the Aventador replacement will have, but former boss Stefano Domenicali said back in 2017 it would have a naturally aspirated V-12. That engine likely won’t be the only source of torque, though, as chief technical officer Maurizio Reggiani told us in 2019 it will be paired with super-capacitor-type hybrid tech. We’ll just have to wait and see.
