Winkelmann reveals the details of the upcoming hybrid Lamborghinis

In a recent interview with Autocar microphones, Lamborghini's number one unveiled some interesting details that we will find in the supercars of tomorrow, the hybrid solutions expected on the market starting from 2022.

Recently the bull brand has presented the latest edition of the Aventador, known as the Ultimae, once again equipped with the muscular V12 engine with over 600 horsepower; this is the last high-level endothermic sports car that we will see leaving the Sant'Agata Bolognese factory.

The successor of the Aventador, which will arrive only in 2023, will keep the 12-cylinder engine but will integrate a hybrid solution plug-in. The car will be just one of Lamborghini's first (or almost) electric solutions, further fully electrified models are expected in the future.

For Lamborghini there will therefore be an adaptation process, a new evolutionary process, necessary to be able to keep up with the times and not risk receiving heavy sanctions from the European Union in terms of emissions.

Unlike the Sian, Lamborghini's first true hybrid, the supercapacitor will not be implemented as it will not be able to satisfy the brand's target for hybrid cars; the desire is to reduce, by 2025, 50% of CO2 emitted by the vehicles of the Bolognese brand. If on the one hand we know the fate of the V12 used on the Aventador, the brand's most iconic engine, it still remains a mystery what will happen to the V10 used on the current Huracan.

According to what has been reported, next year we will see the arrival of two new models based on Huracan and Urus, but only in 2023 and 2024 will 360 degree hybrid proposals be available. The sports SUV Urus, thanks to the strong sales success, will be one of the first models currently in production to receive a hybrid solution, but Lamborghini's intentions also include the desire to study synthetic fuels more closely.

As we know, in fact, the current problem of emissions is not strictly linked to engines but more to the fuels that are used; it is therefore possible that with a revision of the fuels it is possible to maintain the current engines without necessarily having to switch to electric.
