2018 Lamborghini Aventador Spy Shots and Video!


14This 2018 Lamborghini Aventador prototype was spied recently testing a mid-cycle facelift. Lamborghini was testing the car on the Nürburgring and some surrounding roads.

Exterior Design

Judging by these photos, it’s clear the designers are giving the car some extra aggression. The shape of the vents has changed at both ends while at the rear there are new designs for the diffuser and exhaust tips.

Engine and Performance

It’s not entirely clear what mechanical updates are planned for the new Aventador, but it’s likely to receive some extra power from the car’s 6.5-liter V-12, about 710 HP. The engine should perform very similarly to the 2013 Aventador LP 720-4 50° Anniversario with 710 HP. This would be a logical assumption since it would fall between the 739-hp Aventador SV, and 759-hp Centenario. We could also see Lamborghini refine the Aventador’s Independent Shifting Rod (ISR) transmission. The new, 2018 Aventador could also adopt the SV’s adaptive dampers for improved ride and handling.

Interior Design

Expect some changes in the cabin, too. A major interior update will be the new touchscreen-based infotainment system that debuted in the Centenario. It includes Internet connectivity and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration.

Reveal Date

The updated 2018 Aventador should make its debut at the Geneva Auto Show in 2017, most likely as a 2018 model.
