Lamborghini is planning on electrifying its total lineup by the top of the 2020s. One of many hybrid fashions within the pipeline is a supercar that can exchange the favored Huracán. Its identify hasn’t been revealed but, however an unverified report allegedly outlines what it will likely be powered by.
With out citing sources, Motor Pattern wrote that the Huracán’s successor will downsize from a naturally-aspirated V10 to a twin-turbocharged V8. If true, that is an enormous deal: Lamborghini has proudly eschewed pressured induction for its line of supercars, and the one turbocharged member of its lineup is the Urus SUV. The eight-cylinder will reportedly be associated to the unit that powers the Urus, however the two engines will not be equivalent. Motor Pattern realized that the turbos can be programmed to spool up between 7,000 and 10,000 rpm, which is excessive within the rev vary.
An electrical motor put in between the V8 and the transmission will add a hybrid part to the drivetrain, although figures comparable to horsepower and torque have not been revealed. An earlier report pegs the full output at 850 horsepower, however it’s not official. We additionally do not know if the automobile can be an ordinary hybrid or if it can get a plug-in system, and whether or not it can use mechanical or through-the-road all-wheel-drive. Motor Pattern believes that the mannequin can be longer than the Huracán to accommodate the electrified elements of the powertrain, nonetheless, and we’re curious to learn how Lamborghini will offset the hybrid system’s mass. The battery pack and the motor will inevitably add weight.
Lamborghini hasn’t commented on the rumor, and it hasn’t revealed what is going to energy the Huracán’s successor. In reality, it is not performed with the Huracán: the ultimate road-going model of the automobile is due out by the top of 2022 as a hot-rodded off-roader (we’re not kidding!) referred to as Sterrato.
