During the Monterey weekend event in the United States the CEO of Automobili Lamborghini SpA, mr Stephan Winkelmann confirmed there will be a brand new super car unveiled during the 2016 Geneva Auto Show ... this will be the highly rumored hypercar that came up last week.
Rumor has it this car will become a very limited production model based on the Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 Superveloce that was introduced at the 2015 Geneva show with only 20 Coupé and 10 Roadster versions made, priced way above the regular Aventador ... but not as high as the Veneno, most likely the price will be about the same as the Reventon from 2008 which was a highly modified Murciélago LP640 ... the Reventon was sold at €1,000,000 back then ... take into account inflation and you are looking at a price around the €1,500,000 mark for this new V12 super car I guess.
Most likely this new hypercar will have an increase in power, some talk about as much as 800 hp, others mention a more conservatively 770 hp ... while another rumor surrounding this new limited edition model is the fact it could be a hybrid, in which case we would be looking at a power rating that could reach the 1,000 hp mark. Keeping in mind the Asterion LPi910-4 added 300 'electric' hp to the original 610 hp V10 engine a similar increase in power would bring the Aventador LP750-4 engine up to 1050 hp in total ... that would really put the LaFerrari, Porsche 918 Spyder and McLaren P1 at a distance.
Last week word came out Lamborghini had sent out invitations to current owners and possible buyers for a 'behind closed doors' unveil of this new car ... however it is very unlikely these people will get to see an actual car at Pebble Beach this weekend ... most likely the unveil will be limited to a presentation and a holographic animation according to Road and Track.
Another very interesting bit of information was given by Stephan Winkelmann today ... there are two additional versions of the Lamborghini Huracan just around the corner ... let's hope this means we will be seeing the coveted Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 Spyder at the 2015 IAA in Frankfurt in September, and maybe there is a Huracan LP610-2 rear wheel drive only version in our future too.
