Facelifted 2018 Lamborghini Aventador Spied Wearing SV-Inspired Aero Kit

The Aventador will soon get meaner and quicker

The Lamborghini Aventador has been on sale without noticeable updates since its introduction in 2011, which means it's time for a mid-cycle makeover.

The facelifted version of the Italian brand's flagship supercar will likely debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show with a fresh body kit and possibly a power increase.

Looking at these images captured by our spy photographers at the Nürburgring Nordschleife, it's clear that the facelifted Lamborghini Aventador will feature subtle yet sharp styling updates inspired by the Aventador SuperVeloce.

These include a reworked aerodynamics package with two additional air ducts at the front and two intakes located on top of the rear fenders, a sculpted front bumper with sharper aero elements, and a massive rear diffuser.

The rear end features one less tailpipe than the current model, with the exhaust system now housed within a redesigned unit that reminds of the Murcielago LP640. The headlights get a redesigned LED signature, while the taillights appear to stay the same as before.

The interior will not be overlooked either, with the sports car manufacturer likely to introduce more color combinations for the cabin.

As for the rumored power bump, Lamborghini is expected to extract 20 to 40 hp more from the 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 power plant.
