Lamborghini Confirms Two New V12 Models Coming

Expect plenty of V12 goodness this year

  • 24 more cylinders for Lambo this year

  • Unclear if models will be Aventador-based or replacements


In the very last line of the company’s 2020 full-year sales announcement, Lamborghini slid in the note that they will be launching two new V12 models this year. The move shows that the big beast under the back of the best of the breed isn’t dead yet, and we hope it will rage for a long time to come.

“This year, the Huracán STO will be joined by two further new products, based on the iconic V12,” the announcement read. So what does that entail for the V12 models we can expect this year?

We already know that the next Lamborghini Aventador will get a naturally aspirated V12 with some sort of hybrid driveline attached. We don’t know if that vehicle will be coming to market this year with the 6.5L V12 or its latest variant, it certainly seems possible that the now 10-year-old Aventador could see its replacement bow in 2022.

An Aventador-based hybrid model is also possible, though rather than a series production like an Aventador replacement, something like the Sian and its hyper capacitor system mild-hybrid powertrain as another ultra-limited production model.

Another quicker version of the Aventador is always on the list of potential new models, something to move the bar beyond the SVJ and extract a few more ponies and a few thousand more lire from owner pockets. It could also be a one one-off special Squadra Corse model, though we’re not sure those would count for the purposes of this announcement.

Whatever the new model, Lambo just posted its second-best year ever for both sales and profit, so they have plenty to work within the budget for 2021.
