A new Lamborghini hypercar will be introduced at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show and chances are this will be a hybrid.
Lamborghini has lost a lot of ground from its competition for not offering a competitor for the Ferrari LaFerrari, McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder, but things are about to change, as a recent report is indicating. According to Road and Track, quoting Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann, a brand new Lamborghini hypercar will be introduced at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. Chances are this will be based on the Aventador Super Veloce and it should be hybridized. If you though that its three main rivals are expensive and exclusive, you don’t know anything, because this will carry a 7-figure price tag and it should be limited to 30 units, 20 coupes and 10 roadster.
What the report is actually trying to tell us is that Lamborghini will probably show the production version of the Asterion, which has debuted back in 2014, at the Paris Motor Show. This was based on the smaller brother of the Aventador, the Huracan, and it made use of a 5.2 liter naturally aspirated V10 engine, producing 610 HP, backed up by no less than three electric motors. The total output of the assembly stood at 910 HP (669 kW) and this was transformed into a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration made in less than 3 seconds and a top speed of 320 km/h (199 mph).
