Lamborghini Reveals New V12 Hybrid Model Arriving Shortly With Sian Tech

Lamborghini is moving full steam ahead to electrify its three-model portfolio, with Ultimae acting as the last pure gasoline V12 car from Sant'Agata Bolognese. In an interview with Autocar magazine, business CEO Stephan Winkelmann disclosed what the raging bull has planned for the nearest future, beginning later this year with the introduction of a new model. 

The next Lamborghini will have a naturally aspirated V12 engine with hybrid assistance and will make its debut in the summer, according to a press statement focusing on Lamborghini's "greatest six months ever" in terms of sales. Without going into too much detail, the executive stated that supercapacitor technology will be used in the same way as the 819 hp Sián FKP 37, the company's first electrified production car. 

During the same interview, Winkelmann stated that Lamborghini will release two vehicles based on the Huracan and Urus in 2022. The mid-engined V10 supercar will not be upgraded to the following generation until 2024, according to the company's CEO. It means that the old model will acquire a new derivation based on the Super Trofeo Omologata. It'll take time to see if it'll be an STO Spyder or a different Huracan.

Urus, which will be released next year, will receive a mid-cycle makeover, which will most likely include somewhat more power and a plug-in hybrid system. Lamborghini recently celebrated creating 15,000 units of its LM002 spiritual successor, and camouflaged prototypes have been spotted several times in recent months.

Winkelmann informed Autocar that a PHEV version of the Aventador will be released in 2023. It will not employ a supercapacitor because, according to him, it is a "bridge technology" that is not environmentally friendly enough to fulfill more rigorous emissions rules. Lamborghini will use a plug-in hybrid powertrain based on a brand-new V12 engine for this reason.

When asked about the weight penalties imposed by the electrification-related extra hardware, the top brass deflected the question by alluding to the power-to-weight ratio. Looking between the lines, it appears that the Aventador successor will be more powerful as a result of the electric increase, which will help offset the extra weight. More carbon fiber and other ultra-light materials could help to keep the weight gain to a minimum. 

Winkelmann said it's too early to say whether the next-generation Huracan will keep the normally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 motor shared with the Audi R8. Lamborghini will examine different types of motors before making a "balanced conclusion," he said, but he didn't rule out the prospect of a hybrid V6.

Lambo's chairman stated that the already confirmed fourth model line, which will arrive after 2025 with an all-electric arrangement, will not be an SUV. Instead, it will take the form of "at least a 2+2, so a car that will be driven daily." That looks like a swoopy grand tourer to us, so it could be a modern-day Espada rather than the Estoque sedan we've been hoping for.
