We don't have any details on this car beyond what we can see in these pictures and video. There's a twin-exhaust setup that looks almost identical to the Huracan Performante's, center-locking wheels, and lots of new aero bits at the front. That rear wing looks pretty radical, and we'd be willing to bet that it borrows some of the Huracan Performante's innovative active-aero tech too.

Interestingly, the Aventador spied is testing alongside a Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package—not the obvious benchmark for a mid-engine V12 supercar. An interesting choice from inside the VW family to test alongside Lamborghini's V12.

In the video below, this car is called the Aventador Jota, in reference to the one-off Miura Jota created in 1970 by Lamborghini test driver Bob Wallace. We don't know what it'll actually be called though. Maybe Aventador VT? Quattrovalvole? Your guess is as good as ours.
