Lamborghini’s V-12 Super Hybrid - Infused With Sian DNA and Prepped for a Summer Debut

The Lamborghini Sian’s Technology will live on in a new V-12 super Hybrid that will arrive this Year

A few months ago, Lamborghini made it very clear that it will not give up on the V-12 engine. In fact, not one but two Lamborghini V-12 models are set to debut in the near future, one of which was the Ultimae. We also know what the other one is going to be. The Lamborghini Aventador is officially a decade old and a successor is due. As we mentioned a while back, the Aventador successor will feature a V-12 hybrid powertrain, based on the Sian. Moreover, according to CEO Stephan Winkelmann, it will debut later this year.

This means that the recently unveiled Ultimae (yes, that’s how you spell it) will be the last non-hybrid V-12 supercar from Lamborghini.

The Sian FKP37, on the other hand, is the brand’s first mid-engine V-12 hybrid and the upcoming Aventador successor will use the same supercapacitor tech in a similar way. We also expect it will have an output in excess of the Sian’s 819 horsepower figure.

Winkelmann says two more models, based on the Urus and Huracan, will arrive next year. We also know that 2024 will bring the next-generation V-10 “Lambo”, so the one we see later this year will most likely be a sequel to the Huracan Super Trofeo Omologato. It could even be a Spyder version, but that’s something we’ll have to wait for to find out.

As for the Urus, 2022 will bring an updated version of it, which is expected to bring a plug-in hybrid version to the lineup. In fact, Urus test mules have already been spotted testing. The company recently celebrated 15,000 sold units of its Super SUV, which is also a spiritual successor to the LM002. We can argue about that last part.

Here’s the kicker.

The V-12 hybrid model said to debut this summer will not be the Aventador's successor. That actually comes in 2023 and it will feature a plug-in hybrid setup, according to CEO Stephan Winkelmann.

However, it will not be using supercapacitor technology, as it represents “bridge technology” and is not “green” enough to meet the ever-stringent emissions regulations, Winkelmann added. Because of this, future Lamborghini flagship models will feature a plug-in hybrid powertrain, focused around an all-new V-12 engine.

Born in 1992, I come from a family of motoring enthusiasts. My passion for cars was awoken at the age of six, when I saw a Lamborghini Diablo SV in a magazine. After high school I earned a master’s degree in marketing and a Master of Arts in Media and Communications. Over the years, I’ve practiced and become skilled in precision driving and to date have test driven more than 250 cars across the globe. Over the years, I’ve picked up basic mechanical knowledge and have even taken part in the restoration of a 1964 Jaguar E-Type and an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint. Lately, I’ve taken a fancy to automotive photography, and while modern cars are my primary passion, I also have a love for Asian Martial Arts, swimming, war history, craft beer, historical weapons, and car restoration. In time, I plan my own classic car restoration and hope to earn my racing certificate, after which I expect to establish my own racing team.  Read full bio
