It’s been a long time coming, but it seems like the Aventador name will finally be retired soon. Lamborghini has just published a teaser on its website and social media accounts, featuring an image with the unmistakable Aventador headlights and a save-the-date for July 7th – hinting at the launch of the much-rumoured “Final Edition”.
The teaser photo is accompanied by the caption “It takes time to become timeless”, and we think that it’s a pretty apt description for the “final edition” Aventador – the Lamborghini flagship model is now more than 10-years old, being first unveiled at the 2011 Geneva motor show.
Earlier reports claim that the final edition model will be called the Lamborghini Aventador S Jota, or SJ for short. The development mule has already been spotted on the roads, with spy video footages showing that it’ll have a rear-end somewhat similar to the Aventador SVJ – just without the massive wing.
The Lamborghini Aventador SJ will also be the last hurrah for the massive 6.5-litre V12 engine – the next-generation model is expected to feature a hybrid powertrain, as part of the brand’s Cor Tauri electrification plans.
Based on earlier reports, the V12 mill in the final edition Aventador will gain an extra 10 hp on top of the SVJ’s already bonkers 770 hp and 720 Nm of torque, making it the most powerful Aventador to date!
No other information is available at this juncture, but we’ll only have to wait another two more days before we get to see the car in full – so mark your calendars!
