Successor of the Lamborghini Aventador 2023: the brand’s last V12 filmed

Lamborghini’s latest base V12 supercar was first spied on, ahead of its 2023 launch.

What’s coming Lamborghini’s latest production V12 supercar – the successor to today’s Lamborghini Aventador – was first spied on, ahead of its global launch in 2023.

The late replacement of today’s 11-year-old Aventador, the new (and so far unnamed) Lamborghini model will move to rechargeable hybrid power supply – while maintaining a large Atmospheric V12, making it one of the last production 12-cylinder supercars on sale.

Spy photos taken by our European partners confirm that the new V12 supercar will not stray far from the styling of the Aventador it replaces, with a wedge-shaped profile, a low nose, a strong windshield. inclined and similar window profiles.

While the finer styling details remain obscured by the camouflage, the new car features redesigned doors and C-shaped side air intakes – with a partial resemblance to the new (and much more affordable) Chevrolet Corvette sports car. ) – while at the rear there’s a pair of top-mounted race-inspired tailpipes.

An opening in the camouflage covering the roof suggests the installation of an air intake mounted on the roof. 21-inch alloy rims fill the rear arches, wrapped in what appear to be 355/25 Pirelli P Zero tires, similar to later versions of the outgoing Aventador.

The replacement for the Aventador is expected to be powered by a new V12 plug-in hybrid powertrain, combining an all-new naturally aspirated V12 – only the third new V12 in the company’s history – with one or more electric motors, a battery and a new one to replace the Aventador’s seven-speed single-clutch automatic transmission.

The electrified component will be more substantial than the “supercapacitor” system of Lamborghini’s limited-draft Sian and Countach LPI800-4 supercars – both based on the Aventador underpinnings – which can provide a 25kW boost in acceleration, or to fill the gap. ‘torque difference between gear changes.

Power and torque figures have yet to be confirmed, although with strong electrified thrust the new V12 supercar is expected to surpass the 574 kW / 720 Nm of the Aventador LP780-4 Ultimae and the 602 kW of the Sian. These cars can accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.8 seconds.

As Lamborghini has pledged to offer gasoline in its cars beyond 2030, if the successor to the Aventador 2023 survives into the next decade, tighter emissions regulations will likely see it become the last V12 model of the Italian brand in series (and not in limited edition).
