When Lamborghini launched the special edition Aventador Ultimae LP 780-4, we knew the end of an era was coming. After a decade on the market, the Aventador is finally going to be retired. Previous rumors suggested that it will be the last Lamborghini model to feature a V-12 engine, but it looks that Lamborghini is not ready just yet to give up on the V-12.

A successor for the Aventador is right around the corner, and despite many rumors, it will continue offering a V-12 engine- it’s a hybridized engine, that’s true, but still a V-12.

Our spy photographers caught the upcoming Aventador successor cruising around inside the Sant’Agata Bolognese factory area. When you compare it to the current Aventador you will notice so many differences, so, this is actually the real car and not just a mule.

Of course the cover is hiding a lot, but you can still notice different door lines, different mirrors, new brakes and of course the massive high mounted exhaust pipes.

However, when it comes about the Aventador successor the biggest change will be under the hood. Back in July 2021 Stephan Winkelmann said: "It’s a completely new engine, a completely new drivetrain , a new battery, everything is completely new."

While all we have at this point on this new hybrid powertrain is speculation, we do not it will be somewhat similar to the one used in the Sian FKP 37. In there the naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V-12 is combined with a 48-volt system that delivers a total of 808 horsepower. While this may not seem a lot when compared to other hybrid supercars out there, it is still 28 horsepower more than the 780 horsepower delivered by the Aventador Ultimae LP 780.

We will have more details on the Aventador successor in the upcoming months as an official debut should debut sometime in 2023.
