With Lamborghini preparing to launch a new higher-performance Aventador at the Shanghai Motor Show this week, our spy photographers have caught the Italian supercar maker closer to home developing the next iteration of its flagship performance machine.
These photos show a mostly stock-looking Aventador out testing on the Nurburgring, though with a few important changes. Most notable amongst the upgrades are center locking wheels, a unique front splitter, a modified rear spoiler and even unique placement of the brake calipers.
There’s the possibility that this could be an early prototype for a wild Aventador SV model, while the racing-style wheels also support the theory of a track-focused version of the Aventador.
At the Auto China show in Shanghai this week Lamborghini is expected to unwrap a 50th Anniversary edition of the Aventador, sporting a unique aero kit and a power upgrade to 720 hp.
