We have just seen the new Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster being officially unveiled at the 2017 IAA Motor Show in Frankfurt, Germany, but we all know this isn't the final evolution in the Aventador lineup before a successor will take over from the V12 flagship in 2020 ... rumor had it the Urus would be shown at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, but Stefano Domenicali, President, and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini SpA confirmed the Urus will be unveiled during a special event at Sant'Agata on December 4, 2017, already ... so what will be the highlight of the 2018 Geneva Show?
Most likely a new one-off ... Maurizio Reggiani, Director of R&D at Lamborghini has confirmed they are working on another special, limited edition model, that will most likely be unveiled at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show ... by that time it will be sold out probably ... but that also means the Urus will not take center stage next year in March, and another rumor has it the new V12 flagship will be ready by 2020 already, which makes sense as the Aventador was introduced at the 2011 show in Geneva, so 9 or 10 years later a successor would be required ... already known to have internal development number LB634 for the Coupe and LB635 for the Roadster.
But recent spy shots show Lamborghini is working on the final evolution of the current V12 flagship, the Aventador ... with the Superveloce name already taken (limited at 600 Coupe and 500 Roadster) the more powerful version of the Aventador S might be called Aventador GT ... and it will surely come with four-wheel steering and active aerodynamics ... the ALA that has taken the Huracan Performante to a record-breaking time on the famous Nürnburgring in Germany.
Spy shots show both a Coupe and a Roadster with a higher mounted exhaust system ... sure they left the original exhaust in place and covered the new one with a massive box ... but when processing the images in PhotoShop it is clear there are two round exhausts hiding under that box ... just as we've seen on the Huracan Performante.
Naturally the final Aventador evolution will come with a different, more aggressive styling, and will take the lessons learned from the Performante with the new ALA, Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva, so special aerodynamics will be found at the front and rear of this new Aventador ...
With the V12 successor being ready in 2020 or 2021 at the latest, this only leaves 2019 for the final, limited edition, ultimate evolution of the Aventador to be shown in Geneva ...
