Lamborghini Aventador Performante Scooped With Crazy Aero Aids

You didn’t really think Lamborghini would let the Huracan Performante outshine the Aventador forever did you?

Evidently satisfied with the attention the Huracan Performante has garnered in the past six months, the Italian marque has turned its attention to its latest, performance-focused supercar, this time based around the Aventador.

Potentially adopting the Performante badge as well, the car will be based on the recently facelifted Aventador S and as these images show, benefit from a plethora of performance modifications.

For starters, the rear of the Aventador Performante includes a custom engine cover, tweaked rear air vents, a bespoke diffuser and perhaps most notably, a set of dual tailpipes exiting from the center of the rear fascia, just like the hardcore Huracan that bears the same name.

Elsewhere, these images shared by the Lamborghini Dutch Instagram page, reveal a tiny shark fin on the Aventador’s rear decklid and a much more pronounced front end dominated by a splitter that protrudes out. If our eyes are not mistaking us, there may even be a couple of small horizontal cut-outs in the spitter, perhaps a sign of the brand’s Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA) system being used in this potent Aventador model.

Beyond the aero changes, it is inevitable that Lamborghini will tweak the car’s naturally-aspirated V12. In Aventador S guise, it delivers 730 hp and 509 lb-ft but we expect those figures to rise to roughly 770 hp and 550 lb-ft, potentially even more.

It is difficult to know exactly when Lamborghini intends on launching the car but a debut in 2018 is probable.

  • Six Thousand Times

    I kinda think Lambo “needs” 800 horsepower.

    • Bo Hanan

      Agree. There’s plenty of HP to be had before it threatens the Chiron

  • john1168

    AWESOME!

  • Jds65

    Lambo really nailed the Aventador when it first launched and have been making it better since.Thing has the sharpest and one of the most timeless designs.

    • Kaisuke971

      Honestly i don’t even care how this one performs, i just want to see it. The mule looks insane and it still has camo

  • Belthronding Tinuviel

    it looks lost child of the huracan performante and aventador is found!

  • EDDIMUNDO

    That shitty transmission needs to go. They should use a derivative of the Huracan’s transmission.

  • Bash

    Yeah, if it can beat the McLaren,, that’ll be great.

  • cool

  • Shoudn’t the Aventador SV be the fastest Lambo?

    • Oliver Moore

      I think while the Aventador had the SV, the Aventador S has this. SSV? SVS? SVE(voluzione)? GT?

      • Bob

        I think the Aventador S is the second generation Aventador, the Gallardo and Murcielago had two gens, and the SV was the 1st gen SV, also the Huracan was teased to have a Superleggera as well so this might be the Aventador Performante and then they might have a second generation SV. Mightn’t happen though because even though Gallardo had a first and second gen superleggera the Murcielago only had a second gen SV.
