Pop quiz: Which supercar has existed for a decade and yet its creator continues to pump derived products? Why yes, it should be the Lamborghini Aventador. The latest version of the mid-engine V12 beast is the Sian FKP 37, which serves as the company’s first hybrid production vehicle and also its most powerful road car of all time. It looks like the electrified coupe will lose its roof in the near future, according to a new report by The Supercarblog.
Details are scarce at the moment, but the rumor mill indicates that Lamborghini has already managed to sell them all. We do not know for the moment if the roadster will be produced in 63 copies like the coupé or the peeps of Sant’Agata Bolognese want to make it more exclusive. Logic tells us that the Sian FKP 37 Roadster will order a premium on its fixed-roof brother, which retailed for $ 3.6 million.
If it’s the wild Veneno Roadster 2013, the new Sian flavor of 819 horsepower may not have a roof. Lamborghini hasn’t said a word about removing the roof from the Sian FKP 37, but we do know that the debut of new cars is expected to take place later this year. Since there have been so many droptopic flavors of the Aventador, I guess one more can’t hurt. In fact, there is at least one more on the way considering the Lamborghini Squadra Corse which will unveil its machine on track only this summer.
A report last August said that the Aventador could stay until 2024 before being replaced by a new model derived from the Terzo Millennio concept. The naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 engine faces an uncertain future if we rely on the rumor mill, but we hope that electrification will make the power plant comply with more stringent emission regulations. An automotive world without Lamborghini V12 just doesn’t sound right.
Beyond the Aventador, the smaller Huracan should acquire a hardcore version supposedly called “STO”, which would be the closest thing to a Huracan Super Trofeo on the road. A legal Urus ST-X for the road is also coming, with an Urus hybrid SUV.
