Lamborghini Doesn’t Want To Leave The Hypercar Market To The Senna, Valkyrie, Etc.

Even with the newly unveiled Aventador SVJ, Lamborghini is falling behind other exotic carmarkers when it comes to offering a standalone, limited production hypercar.

Mercedes-AMG has the Project One, Aston Martin the Valkyrie and McLaren the Senna. However, that could change, sooner rather than later, as Lamborghini is reportedly interested in such a model.

The information was confirmed to Autocar by the company’s head honcho, Stefano Domenicali, who wasn’t too keen on dropping more details except for the fact that they’re considering an “extreme aero” hypercar offered in very limited numbers.

If given the green light for production, then it would be “in the same vein of Centenario and Veneno”, said Domenicali. Still, it’s a big step between being interested and actually making a limited production hypercar, as Lambo’s boss eventually admitted that their main priority is series production supercars.

Meanwhile, the Italian automaker is getting ready to start shipping the first examples of the Aventador SVJ. The SVJ unveiled last week in California and is the most advanced and track-focused derivative of the flagship supercar.

It’s capable of going from naught to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in just 2.8 seconds and up to a top speed in excess of 350 km/h (217 mph). Also, thanks to the active aerodynamics, rear-wheel steering and other changes compared to the Aventador S, the SVJ is an absolute beast in between the apexes, and managed to lap the Nurburgring in 6:44.97, thus becoming the fastest production car on the German track.

  • Well if it’s the same vein of Veneno or Centenario, wouldn’t it be another Aventador in a very expensive suit?

      Indeed….that is unless Lamborghini has already been developing it for the past couple years and Stefano is being sneaky. I actually think there is a decent chance that this is the case.

      If Lamborghini just recently decided to enter the hyper-car market, it would not be to rival the Valkyrie, Project One, and Senna. The timeframe is too short to develop a new model for the ground up.

      I would bet they are planning on a future model to battle the successors of the LaFerrari, P1, and 918 Spyder should Porsche build one. Lamborghini will undoubtebly have a nice influx of cash with the success of the Urus to help justify the high development costs.

      • I wouldn’t rule out anything but I have feeling it’s just yet another rebodied Aventador or based on existing variant, the problem with big corporations is that you need to report to the top and ask permissions.

  • Dude

    Then don’t. Make something cool.
