Winkelmann downplays Asterion production image

The Italian based automaker Lamborghini is not so sure on the future production version of the recently unveiled Asterion.

While the competition is already offering models such as the Ferrari LaFerrari, McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder, for more than a year, Lamborghini is not so sure on a production version of the Asterion. According to the company’s CEO, Stephan Winkelmann, the possibility of a production variant has been downplayed, in the current version, but a one-off model might be assembled, with the 6.5 liter V12 engine from the Aventador.

As you probably remember by now, the Lamborghini Asterion is a hybrid supercar which has been officially presented to the public, in a world premiere, last week, during the 2014 Paris Motor Show. The model in question is taking its power from a 5.2 liter V10 gasoline burner, the same one used on the Huracan, which is rated at 610 HP, being backed up by three electric motors, all of them providing an extra 300 HP. The total output produced by this assembly stands at 910 HP (669 kW), enough for a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint made in 3 seconds and a top speed of 320 km/h (199 mph).
