Well well well, what have we hear? Looks to us like a Lamborghini Aventador prototype wearing the wheels from a Bugatti Veyron. The question is, why would an Aventador need the rolling stock from a Veyron?
Is Lamborghini preparing an Aventador Sang Arancio edition? Maybe, but not likely. More likely is that the Raging Bull gang is working on a high-speed version of the Aventador, and have borrowed the Bugatti's wheels and tires – which were specifically developed for high-speed running – in order to put it through its paces.

Of course there is another possibility we can't discount: namely, that Bugatti is preparing to use the Aventador's platform for a new supercar of its own. But with expectations that the Galibier will be the next to wear the EB letters, we're gonna go with the high-speed Lambo prospect and keep our eyes and ears peeled for more.

      This is the mule for the Bugatti Aerolithe, not a 250 mph Aventador.

      WHY? Top Gear uses a freakin' runway for pete's sake and even they couldn't max out the current Aventador top speed before running out of tarmac, and yet there are going to be folks somewhere that need a 250 MPH version?? Of course not, its just a pissing contest. I absolutely LOVE Lambos, but give it a rest with this crap.

      Holy crap, I couldn't read past 'hear.' Seriously, this kind of grammar is what separates the people with jobs from 3rd grade students, or at least it's supposed to separate the two. There's nothing that pisses me off more than when people mix 'too,' 'to,' and 'two,' or 'there,' 'they're', and 'their,' or really stupid ones like 'here,' and 'hear.' Well well well, what have we listen? Well well well, what have we here? Christ...the day an engineer corrects publishers' grammar!

      What we have here is Noah Joseph who gets "hear" and "here" mixed up, plus an editor/publisher who can't pick up on the mistake when proof reading before hitting the "Publish Now" button. Eye are ah collage graiduit.

        What we have here is another moron that likes to point out the smallest mistakes in an article. Dude, shut up. I'm going to assume you've never worked a journalist position in a company as big as AutoBlog, let alone any other big name internet publication. You do not realize what these guys go through within a day to get these articles out to you for you to read.

          Ohh boo hoo, most people have a tough job, I'm just tired of having to read substandard edits from Autoblog. If this was the first time, then OK, but it constantly happens. It's worse that it's coming from Big ol' Autoblog, vs. a basement enterprise. I don't watch crap on TV, and I don't want to read it either.

          Firstly, mistaking "hear" and "here" is no small detail. It's an error that screams "nana-nana boo-boo" at you from the very first line of the article, and one can't help but wonder if Huffington's acquisition of the entire AOL family caused everyone to eradicate 50 points off their IQ. Secondly, cool story bro.

      I'm going to take a guess and say this is just an Aventador mule that's been fitted with the Veyron's tires and most likely was a top speed test car. I don't think it has anything to do with Lamborghini producing a 250mph car. Just because it has the Veyron's wheels, doesn't mean it's going to reach Veyron speeds.

        Maybe they are trying to aim for a top speed in between the 250+mph Veyron and the standard Aventador's 217 for a possible SV version or similar with a top speed in the mid 220's low 230's. Or maybe the Aventador tyres cant handle much more than 700hp, which is unlikely because it is AWD and launches without fuss.

      A parking lot full of some of the coolest cars. That test car has something magical in it.

      The title doesn't convey how interesting/exciting this could potentially be... all of those options are awesomely realistic ones. That said, just because a Lambo is wearing a Bugatti wheel setup doesn't necessarily mean anything at all. Batman needs a new 250mph car... ;-)

      Are we sure it wasnt just a play on words? Considering the article is 'hearsay'...

      I'm interested in as to how they would accomplish this. As far as I know, Lamborghini never just slapped on a few turbos, cranked up the boost, and called it a day. This will probably take some serious engineering.
