Lamborghini is set to replace the popular Huracan mid-2024 supercar with an all-new model that will share very little with sister brand Audi and feature a unique hybrid platform and powertrain.
The current Huracan has been around since 2014 and will eventually be replaced in Q2 2024 with the first new cars likely to arrive in Australia in 2025.
auto expert believe that the new model will still carry the V10 engine, but it will be a completely new engine designed by Lamborghini with a hybrid system.
Talking to auto expert At the grand opening of the new Lamborghini dealership in Brisbane this week, the brand’s Asia Pacific regional director, Francesco Scardaoni, confirmed the new powertrain will be hybrid and may have unintentionally admitted that it does. will also be a V10 engine.
“It will be the new V10 engine of the new Huracan, at the moment we cannot reveal which engine will be suitable for the car. But it will be a hybrid. Because of our hybrid phase, the Huracan will be 2024 where we will release a hybrid version of the new Huracan, mid-year 24 we will release the new car.”
The most exciting news for Lamborghini fans, aside from the possibility that the V10 engine exists in hybrid form, is that the new Italian supercar will not share its heart with an Audi, as is the case with the Huracan and R8.
“Lamborghini has become one of the most profitable brands in the group this year, we set another record year in terms of operating profit…. and as the most profitable brand, of course you have the right to claim certain things and also fund the project yourself.”
The new Huracan will follow the flagship V12 hybrid engine. This will also be combined with the hybrid urine SUV before the all-electric Lamborghini 2+2 arrives in 2028.
Don’t expect Lamborghini to follow Ferrari’s lead in creating countless new models based on similar platforms.
“We want to be quite differentiated between the product lines, our customers are asking to maintain quite different models, we are building dreams and we need to make sure that customers customers are dreaming of Lamborghini.”
New order customer Huracan Tecnica will now see their cars in 2024, around the same time we might see a replacement Huracan.
