From Lamborghini There are some interesting circling about one of the Lamborghini's future models which is set for launch in 2020. It is the successor to the Aventador model, which, although recently presented in the strongest road going version, is still completely competitive.
So what's known about his successor? Some answers to this question were given to the British automotive web page Autocar by the new General Manager of the Sant'Agata brand, Maurizio Reggiani. He confirmed that the new car will receive a hybrid powertrain, but not at the expense of the engine concept. The engine will continue to be a V12, as we know it from Aventador, but with an additional hybrid assembly, which will add some weight to the car, according to Reggiani estimates, between 150 and 200 kilograms.
The decision to use a hybrid powertrain, according to Lamborghini's first man, is not a personal one, it is a matter of necessity and adjustment to the market. "I always say that it's better to have 10 pounds of weight less than one kilowatt of power more, even if the power-to-weight ratio remains the same. Without a doubt, the new car will be heavier than the predecessor, but what does this mean in the long run? We do not know."
And although Lamborghini will oblige the trend of hybridization, the brand does not plan to incorporate turbo chargers and reduce engine capacity.
