Is Lamborghini working on 248 mph Aventador model?

Some spy photos of a new Lamborghini Aventador have just popped up. Spotted in Sant’Agatha Bolognese in Italy, the body of the car can be clearly seen as an Aventador, but there are some specific details that tells us that it isn’t a normal Aventador.

The first thing that sticks out is the Bugatti Veyron wheels, which obviously came from parent company Volkswagen AG, who also owns Bugatti. While the normal Aventador comes with 19-inchers up front and 20-inchers at the rear with 255mm shoes at the front and 335m at the rear.

Those Bugatti Veyron wheels are 20-inchers and 21-inchers front/rear with of course slightly more rubber rapped around. For the larger wheels alone, we think that Lamborghini is in the process of making a harder and much faster Aventador. Makes sense since the base Aventador is just about to hit showrooms. Could this be the more powerful and faster SV version that Lamborghini has been known to release? Only time will tell.

Refresher: The Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 will be powered by a 6.5L V12 engine making 690-hp and 509 lb-ft of torque. Mated to the company’s new ISR (Independent Shifting Rod) 7-speed transmission, 0 to 60 mph will come in 2.9 seconds with a top speed of 217 mph. The Aventador is an all-wheel-drive supercar courtesy of Lamborghini’s Haldex 4-wheel drive system. Prices will start north of $375,000.
