Upcoming Lamborghini V12 hybrid Big set instead of 12 years old girl Aventadorwhich end of production This year, it will probably start at a higher cost – but the Italian marque insists that has more to do with the increasing cost of materials than with hybridisation.
Scheduled to launch in early 2023, the new flagship Lamborghini V12 will use an all-new chassis, V12 engine and hybrid system that the Italian brand says is completely in-house. New model available more than 3000 orders.
Talking to auto expert At the grand opening of a revised Lamborghini dealership in Brisbane this week, the brand’s Asia Pacific regional director, Francesco Scardaoni, said the new model will see a price increase due to rising materials costs.
“The cost will be slightly higher than the Aventador, but not because of the hybrid but because of the materials, the cost of the materials, the cost of the parts,” said Scardaoni. auto expert.
The new V12 engine will launch the onslaught of the new Lamborghini model, followed by Huracan replaces in 2024.
“The year 2023 is the year we start the second phase of electrification, our plan is to launch the hybrid phase of Lamborghini,” said Scardaoni.
“Of course, it’s a big transition, a big change for the company, and we wanted to do it with the flagship and it’s V12 engine. The masterpiece that the company started in 1963 and worked on throughout those years and that is our legacy. It is important to start a new era with a V12 engine.”
When the Aventador debuted in 2011, it became the first mass-produced car to feature a carbon fiber monocoque chassis. Its replacement is also set to bring a list of firsts to market, and Lamborghini says it will be the best in the segment, which suggests the firm should fight to Ferrari’s ballistic SF90 V8 hybrid engine. We anticipate some technology from the supercar sector to become ‘mainstream’.
“The new Aventador has to create another success story like we did in 2011. It will be a very important car and you will see the car soon and we are sure it will be a success. It is more efficient than it is now.”
In better news for interested buyers, Lamborghini will ramp up production of the new V12 in place of the Aventador with Scardaoni admitting that the factory will likely have a higher capacity than before.
The Italian brand has also fixed an airbag compliance issue with racing seats affecting markets like Australia and Canada. All new models will be optional with racing seats unlike Huracan STO and Skill.
Customers who want to order now will likely see their new Lamborghini V12 in the first half of 2024.
