Lamborghini Sian’s Design Will Not Influence Next Aventador

Lamborghini says the design of the Sian FKP 37 won’t inspire the looks of the Aventador’s successor or any other future Lamborghini models.

When the Italian marque first presented the Terzo Millenio concept a couple years ago and then brought many of its styling cues through to the street-legal Sian, it was widely presumed that the Aventador successor would look much the same. It won’t, according to Lamborghini design boss Mitja Borkert who recently spoke with Autocar at the Frankfurt Auto Show.

“There was a certain closeness of design between the Reventon and the Aventador. This is exactly what I don’t want to have. There will not be this language in the new Aventador,” he said.

Borkert is right about the similarities between the Reventon and the Aventador. Lamborghini unveiled the Reventon at the Frankfurt Motor Show back in 2007 based around the Murcielago LP640. It had styling inspired by stealth jets and many of its sharp edges and surfaces were carried through to the Aventador.

Expanding further on the design of the Sian FKP37, Borkert said he didn’t want to create another limited-run Lamborghini like the Veneno with crazy wings and splitters.

“After Veneno, after all these cars, I wanted to have integrated aerodynamics,” he said. “I didn’t want another wing car with a spoiler sticking out. I wanted to have something where aerodynamic efficiency and design meet in something completely new.”

Not only will the Aventador’s successor not look like the Sian but it also won’t feature the same hybrid powertrain that uses a supercapacitor. Instead, Lamborghini will pair its naturally-aspirated V12 with a more traditional hybrid system.
