SV and SVJ models with their roadster variants arrived in the following year before Lamborghini refreshed the platform with the Aventador S that arrived at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.

Speaking about the Aventador and the marque's N.A. V12 engine as the final model rolled off the production line, Stephan Winkelmann, Chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini said, "The Lamborghini Aventador was a game-changer at its launch, and the flagship Lamborghini model for 11 years of production. The V12 engine has been part of Lamborghini's heritage since the company's earliest days; the beating heart of models from Miura to Diablo, Countach to Murciélago. The Aventador captured Lamborghini's competencies in design and engineering when it debuted in 2011, with Lamborghini values that are always at the centre of company and product impetus: pure, futuristic design; benchmarking performance; and addressing technical challenges with innovation to produce the most emotive, class-leading super sports cars. These principles are the very essence of the Lamborghini Aventador, and assure its timeless appeal."
