The highly anticipated hybrid V12 successor to the Lamborghini Aventador appears to have surfaced once again, this time in a series of leaked images that surfaced on Instagram.

    The images, published by Instagram user @Automotive_mike, appear to be renderings of the upcoming vehicle, potentially from a configurator.

    The new supercar is reportedly set to be unveiled at the end of March.

    Lamborghini’s razor-sharp design language continues to feature, as seen in patent sketches published in January and spy photos, but the still unnamed model strays from the typical Aventador profile.

    The car’s front facade is aggressive and angular, resembling the limited Lamborghini Sian, with scalene LED headlights and large cooling intakes located at the bumper’s bottom.

    On the side, there are pronounced air intakes behind what are most likely Lamborghini’s trademark scissor doors.

    The back of the vehicle has dramatic high-mounted, hexagonal dual centre exhaust outlets, as well as slim Y-shaped rear lighting strips.

    Lamborghini has already confirmed the upcoming successor to the Aventador will be equipped with a naturally aspirated V12 engine supported by an electric motor, which should allow it to take the fight to Ferrari’s ballistic SF90 V8 hybrid.

    The untitled Aventador successor has already amassed more than 3000 orders, with an 18-month waitlist, demonstrating there is still an appetite for ultra-luxury vehicles.

    The brand has yet to release any more specific technical information. While we don’t yet know how much power and torque it will produce, we don’t expect it to regress from the Aventador.

    The outgoing flagship packs a V12 engine that delivers 574kW and 720Nm in LP780-4 Ultimae form.

    Featuring all-wheel drive and an automated manual gearbox, the Ultimae is capable of accelerating from 0-100km/h in just 2.8 seconds, hitting 200km/h in 8.7 seconds, and reaching a top speed of 355km/h.

    To promote electrification across its range, the Italian automaker is investing 1.8 billion euros (A$2.8bn) until 2026, with plans to introduce its maiden EV by 2028.

    Lamborghini will launch a plug-in hybrid version of the Urus SUV in 2024, which has already been spotted in testing, while the successor to the present Huracan model will also feature a hybrid system when it’s released in 2024.
