Lamborghini is working on a mid-cycle update for its Aventador and a recent trademark filing suggests the updated car could don the automaker’s “S” badge.
A trademark filing for “Aventador S” was made with a European trademark and patent office on November 18 and included the stylized logo shown below.
Lamborghini has previously used the letter S to denote enhanced versions of its cars, the previous instances being the Miura S and Countach S, so the discovery of the latest trademark isn't much of a surprise.

The updated Aventador, whatever it ends up being called, is expected to make its world debut next March at the 2017 Geneva auto show.
From spy shots we know the car will sport new bumpers with extra vents, a new exhaust tip design and a more aggressive rear diffuser. We’ve also heard that there will be refinements made to the transmission, more power extracted from the V-12 engine, and the fitment of the Aventador SuperVeloce's adaptive dampers for the suspension.
Expect some changes in the cabin, too. Key among these will be the new touchscreen-based infotainment system that debuted in the Centenario. It includes Internet connectivity and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration.
