Line drawings filed with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) seem to reveal the outline of Lamborghini’s next supercar.

Destined to replace the Aventador, the design is more evolutionary than revolutionary, taking cues from the Centenario and Sian specials. The front end seems especially similar to the Sian, while the rear diffuser definitely looks like the one which debuted on the Centenario.

Also visible from the drawings are the Y-style rear lights and the engine’s position right behind the occupants. The name of this next raging bull isn’t confirmed but a previous trademark for Revuelto could well appear on its rear.

The Aventador was part of Lamborghini’s long-running lineage of mid-engined V12 supercars. Built between 2011 and 2022, it replaced the Murcielago, which in turn followed on from the Diablo, Countach, and ultimately the Miura that defined the supercar genre. Whatever replaces it has big shoes to fill, in more ways than one.

Lamborghini is sticking with a naturally-aspirated V12 for as long as it can, although it will feature hybrid technology. Most likely that will be in the form of the supercapacitor system that has previously been fitted to the Sian and reborn Countach, which should give the new car around 800 horsepower.

Lamborghini clearly didn’t want this news getting out as the patent filing was made in North Macedonia and the images have now been removed from the WIPO website. A March unveiling will reveal all, however.
