Earlier on, at the Geneva Motor Show where Lamborghini’s Chief Technical Officer, Maurizio Reggiani, admitted the Aventador could spawn a final version to serve as a swan song for the naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine in its current form, without electrification.He wasn’t talking about what was to become the Sian FKP 37 since that one is a hybrid, so he was likely referring to a different car, one that would still carry the “Aventador” moniker.
According to a post by a member of the McLaren Life Forums, Lamborghini is planning to give the current Aventador a special send-off with a new limited-edition model before the flagship supercar gets electrified. It will allegedly be called the Aventador SVR as a throwback to the one-off Miura SVR and will be the last ever version of Lamborghini’s flagship supercar to utilize a naturally aspirated V12 without any electrical assistance.
Without any restrictions that would otherwise be mandatory for a road-legal car, the unleashed version of the mighty V12 is said to deliver an astounding 830 hp. That would represent an extra 60 bulls over the Aventador SVJ and even 11 hp more than the electrified Sian. There’s no word about torque at this point, but a bump over the SVJ’s 531 pound-feet (720 Newton-meters) seems plausible.
While the model name and details haven’t been verified by Lamborghini, the forum member claims they already have an Aventador SVR on order and has already taken it for a test drive.
