Bits and pieces. That's what we get when it comes to upcoming automobiles yet to be announced. We glean from leaks, rumors, spy photos and other sources to try and piece together a clear picture of what's coming down the road. And sometimes that information comes from patent offices.

In this case, reports have come in that Lamborghini has registered the name "Aventador" with the U.S. trademark office. The name has a number of divergent translations – including, appropriately, Spanish slang for kicking @$$ – but the most pertinent could be that of a thousand-pound Spanish bull that legendarily fought in and was named the bravest of the Plaza de Toros de Zaragoza.

Whatever the meaning behind the name, we're more interested in what it will adorn. The most likely scenario is that Aventador will be the name of the upcoming Murcielago successor, coupled with the alphanumeric LP700-4 designation. Alternatively this could be used for the limited-production version of the Sesto Elemento concept, though that seems more likely to retain its name. Of course, it could be destined for something else entirely, or nothing at all. We'll just have to sit tight and see.

      Interesting. The domain aventador.com has been registered by Lamborghini since March, so I'm guessing there might be truth to this. http://who.godaddy.com/WhoIs.aspx?domain=aventador.com&prog_id=godaddy

      don't know, but the name doesn't sound soo agressive in my opinion, then again the murcielago didn't either for me when it was made... so i guess it might grow on me soon...
