Lamborghini will continue to offer supercars with naturally aspirated engines for now.
The Italian based brand remains one of the few companies which is currently offering naturally aspirated engines for its exotic models and this “trend” will continue in the future too as it has been recently announced by the Lamborghini CEO, Stephan Winkelmann, who has spoken to Autoblog.
“Naturally aspirated engines are still the best engines which are on the market for super sports cars, in terms of acceleration, in terms of sound, and unless there is [something] better, we are going to keep them”, said the official.
With Lamborghini always looking towards making its cars better, these will be eventually equipped with turbocharged engines but fans of the automaker should be satisfied for the moment since the competition has went on with its times. The two models which are put together in Sant’Agata Bolognese, the Aventador and the Huracan, are both powered by a naturally aspirated unit, a 6.5 liter V12 and a 5.2 liter V10, respectively. The Aventador is capable of putting down a total of 690 HP (510 kW) and 689 Nm (508 lb-ft) of torque, being able to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3 seconds and a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph). The Huracan is sending 602 HP (449 kW) and 560 Nm (413 lb-ft) to the wheels and this needs 3.2 seconds to reach 100 km/h (62 mph), with a top speed of 325 km/h (202 mph).
