Electrified Aventador replacement expected later this year
Design images show exactly what we want from Lamborghini
This might be your first look at the supercar Lamborghini is planning to replace the Aventador. Patent drawings show the outline of a car that’s very likely to be that next big Lambo.
The patent drawings were filed last year with the World Intellectual Property Organization (via Motor1) and list Lamborghini design boss Mitja Borkert as the designer of the car with Automobili Lamborghini as the owner. Oddly, the filings were made in North Macedonia.
They might not be top-quality renderings, but they do give us a pretty good look at what we believe to be the Aventador’s successor. They show an angry nose that looks a lot like the Sian FKP 37, a diffuser that looks to be snagged from the Centenario, and center tailpipes that look pretty cool too.
The design patent images aren’t far off of the spy shots we’ve seen circulating either. The resemblance between that car and this test mule spotted last week is very strong.

Lamborghini’s replacement for the Aventador is set to launch a new powertrain for the brand. A PHEV motor and battery are set to join the V12. It might not be popular with everyone, but the hybrid powertrain is a must if Lamborghini wants to meet emissions rules. Plus the extra electric power will probably make the car faster than ever.
Expect the production Aventador replacement, and the cool name we’re sure Lamborghini will give it, to show up later this year and be on the road next year.
