Lamborghini is working on an update for the Aventador, and these spyshots reveal just what’s in store for its V12-powered flagship model, in both coupe and roadster guises.

The changes are indeed very noticeable, as the Aventador’s current nose has been done away with, replaced with an all-new one that appears to be inspired by the previous Gallardo. New elements here include a large front spoiler and smaller intakes.

At the back, the Aventador gains a prominent rear diffuser and a more complex aerodynamic setup, with cues from its smaller sibling – the Huracan. The rear intake is now redesigned as a result of the new arrangement, split into two sections by an additional aero component that runs across the bumper. A reshaped exhaust tip and new rear wing also appears to be part of the update.


The facelifted model will likely receive a power bump, with revisions to the current model’s 6.5 litre V12 engine, which currently produces 700 PS and 690 Nm of torque. As the Aventador SV has demonstrated, there’s still plenty of potential from this bull’s heart.

The imminent facelift could be one of many more until an all-new model replaces the Aventador, which the company claims may debut by 2021. It remains to be seen if Lamborghini will abandon the V12 engine in favour of a hybrid powertrain for the Aventador replacement.
