This Is How The Lamborghini Aventador Evolved Over The Years

The Aventador may be getting a little long in the tooth, but if new reports are to be believed, it still has a few years left before being replaced.

Lamborghini replaced the seductive Murcielago with the sharp new Aventador back in 2011. The car premiered with a brand new 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12, a seven-speed single-clutch transmission with independent shifting rods, and a carbon fiber monocoque. It was the perfect successor to the already extravagant ride.

Throughout the years, Lamborghini has introduced a host of distinctive new versions, and the following video details all of them.

The first special edition was the ‘J’, a Speedster one-off. In 2013, the Aventador-based Veneno was launched with just 3 coupes and 9 Roadsters made. That same year, the 50th Anniversario was launched with 710 HP and an eye-catching new design.

Lamborghini took things up a notch in 2015 with the unveiling of the SV that was available both as a Coupe and a Roadster, and was followed by the Miura Edition in 2016.

In 2016, the Aventador underwent its mid-life facelift with the launch of the S, and in 2018, the SVJ Coupe and Roadster. Perhaps the craziest Aventador-based model ever produced is the SC18 Alston built by Lamborghini’s racing division and put out no less than 770 HP.

A recent report claims that Lamborghini has pushed back the launch of the Aventador successor to 2024 due to cost concerns within the Volkswagen Group. If that’s accurate, we can expect to see numerous other variants launched in the next years.

    They missed the Centenario (and the new Sian).

    • Matt

      This was made before the Sian, can’t do much about that.

  • Ben

    I’ve brought that up here before and was told it is considered its very own model. I don’t know if that’s true or not, but its what I’ve been told.

    • Zandit75

      Then you would have thought the Veneno would also be considered separate.

      • Ben

        Hey, just saying what someone told me. Never really cared about Lamborghini’s reasoning to research it further. I just take the cars at face value.
