The successor of the Lamborghini Aventador could be hybrid and would arrive in 2020

Lamborghini SC18 Alston

All Lamborghini models, from the legendary Countach in 1974 to the Aventador, in 2011, have something in common. His designs are disruptive, aggressive, modern . Its mechanical configuration, on the contrary, continues to use pure V10 or V12 engines to propel them at the "speed of light".

Currently, many supercar manufacturers are using electric power, in many cases derived of automobile competitions, to increase the power and performance of their vehicles. Electricity offers immediate power, and Lamborghini could be thinking about this technology to implement it in the successor of the Aventador .

Specifically, the next model top of the range of the Italian firm, could use an atmospheric V12 engine that would deliver its power to the rear wheels, while the front, would be driven by an electric motor located on the front axle. Therefore, as it happens in the Lamborghini Aventador, the traction would be to the four wheels, what supposes a greater efficiency in the delivered power and a greater control of the vehicle.

Despite using a hybrid system to boost performance, reduce consumption and drive only thanks to the electric motor, the Italian firm has not confirmed the autonomy with which this propeller would count. Of course, what is certain is that, although Lamborghini uses large amounts of carbon fiber to reduce weight in all its vehicles, this new model would have more kilograms, around 200 , due to the system hybrid.

"There are several debates in progress. Some say 20 kilometers, another 30, and China bets for 50 kilometers, but we usually develop only one car for everybody, "said Maurizio Reggiani, Lamborghini's Chief Technician.

Before the arrival of the successor model of the Lamborghini Aventador in 2020, could arrive a vehicle that would replace the current Hurricane . This would also use a hybrid system with the same configuration, except that powered by an atmospheric V10 engine that would move the rear axle, leaving the front for the electric.
