Well, Lamborghini has recently confirmed that it will hybridize its range in the face of the ever-increasing emission reduction pressure.
Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali recently spoke to Automotive News, letting it slip that the first production gas-electric Sant'Agata Bolognese machine will come in the form of the Aventador replacement, which is set to land in 2021.
"Probably around 2021, with the Aventador replacement that will add a motor to its V-12 engine," the head honco, who formerly led Ferrari's Formula One efforts, explained in the recent interview.
The top executive stated that the Huracan replacement would go on a similar path: "The same will happen later also on the V-10 family when we replace the Huracan. A plug-in model is the only way to maintain performance and keep Lamborghini's engine sound while also reducing emissions,"
Of course, it's a bit early to talk about the successor of the Huracan, since we have yet to see the production version of the V10 model's mid-cycle revamp.
Of course, a hybrid Urus is also in the cards, with this set to use a hybrid powertrain incorporating a V8: "We have seen that a V-6-powered plug-in did not offer the performance level a Lamborghini should deliver. We began working on a V-8 plug-in, but we are not there yet,"
When it comes to our second point, this is a subjective one. You see, we were quite surprised to notice that digital artist Yasid Oozeear managed to do a better job at penning a Lamborghini hypercar than the company's designers.
In our book, this aero-tricked Asterion (widebody plus wing) is prettier than any of Lamborghini's recent hypercars, recent SC18 included.
