Start Preparing for a World Where Plug-In Hybrid Lamborghinis Exist

Start Preparing for a World Where Plug-In Hybrid Lamborghinis Exist

Successors to the Huracan and Aventador will carry hybrid systems

It’s official. Lamborghini will replace the Aventador and Huracan supercars with plug-in hybrid successors. The two models are scheduled to arrive sometime in 2020 and 2022, respectively. That should be enough time for Lambo purists and old-school fans alike to come to grips with the future direction of the Italian automaker. Don’t feel too bad, though, because naturally aspirated V-10s and V-12s will remain part of Lamborghini’s powertrain equation. They’ll just get some form of hybrid assistance to help Lamborghini cut back on its emissions output.

Lamborghini Urus Concludes its 114-City, Globe-Trotting World Tour

Lamborghini Urus Concludes its 114-City, Globe-Trotting World Tour

Because auto show debuts aren’t big enough to handle the SUV’s hype

The Lamborghini Urus is such a big deal for Lamborghini that a world debut isn’t enough for the SUV. The Urus made its official debut at Lamborghini’s headquarters in Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy last December, and over the next four months, Lambo took its latest pride and joy on a 114-city world tour, putting it in front of over 8,500 people, including celebrities, journalists, and most importantly, prospective customers.

Lamborghini Aventador SV Jota Spotted On The Nürburgring; Is Porsche's Record In Danger?

Lamborghini Aventador SV Jota Spotted On The Nürburgring; Is Porsche’s Record In Danger?

Will Lambo recapture the crown with a more extreme Aventador?

Remember the mean, camouflaged Lamborghini Aventador we spotted on the road last week? The Italian supercar is back into the wild, but this time around it was spotted on the Nurburgring track. It sure seems Lambo is readying something really hot and maybe even a new record for production cars on the German track. As we mentioned last week, this beefed-up version of the Aventador is supposed to sit atop the incredible SV. Word has it Lambo will use it to revive the Jota name, first used on a prototype and limited-edition version of the Miura and then on a limited-edition of the Diablo SE30.

Lamborghini Aventador SV Jota Caught Testing

Lamborghini Aventador SV Jota Caught Testing

Turning the Raging Bull up to 11

Get ready to bring the noise with full-throated Italian V-12 fury, because it looks like Lambo has something special brewing. That’s because the black and white camo’d test mule you see here is most likely a new top-trim Aventador dubbed the SV Jota, with hotness dripping from every winglet and crease.

The SV Jota name is plucked from Lambo’s past, specifically a limited-run edition of the Miura, which offered up racing-inspired modifications like weight reduction, stiffer suspension pieces, new aero bits, and extra muscle. We’re not sure how many Aventador SV Jotas will be see the light of day, but either way, every one of ‘em is most likely already completely sold out.

Regardless, look for a heady dose of V-12 power in the middle of the machine, possibly with figures as high as 800 ponies. The 0-to-60 mph should happen in the mid-2-second range, while top speed will be in excess of 220 mph. As a reference, the standard Lamborghini Aventador produces around 690 horsepower, while more modern versions like the Aventador S make 730 horsepower.

The SV Jota will also sport an enormous wing in the rear, plus a reworked exhaust system. Lambo will probably kick things off with this coupe hardtop version spotted here, followed later by a Roadster model.

Expect a debut some time this summer or fall.

Lamborghini Aventador Successor Could Go Hybrid

Lamborghini Aventador Successor Could Go Hybrid

Don’t be sad, Lambo isn’t giving up on its V-12s, either

In the latest sign of the changing times, Lamborghini is now looking into a future where hybrid powertrains will play bigger roles in shaping its future portfolio of supercars, one that includes the successor to the Lamborghini Aventador. The company’s chief technical officer, Maurizio Reggiani, said that government emissions regulations will play a big part in determining the future of Lamborghini’s engine offerings. That’s not to say that its trademark V-12 engines will bite the dust, but it is indicative of the changing landscape that’s affecting all segments of the auto industry.

Lamborghini’s Successor to the Aventador Super Veloce Could Use "Jota" Moniker

We haven’t seen the Jota name used since the Aventador J

The successor to the Lamborghini Aventador Super Veloce may feature a designation that Lambo fans are very familiar with as a new spy image revealed that the car’s full name will be the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ. We can establish that the first two letters of the suffix stand for "Super Veloce," but the last letter — J — could point to the return of the “Jota” moniker.

2019 Lamborghini Aventador Performante

2019 Lamborghini Aventador Performante

The company’s flagship model is about to become more aggressive!

It’s been around six months since Lamborghini upgraded the flagship Aventador to S specs, thus introducing the facelifted model, and the Italian firm is already testing a new iteration of the supercar. With the mid-cycle facelift and the high-performance SuperVeloce (SV) already on the road it might seem out of place for Lambo to test a new version of the current generation model, but the prototype our paparazzi caught testing on public roads doesn’t appear to be a next-gen car. Instead, it looks like Lamborghini is actually preparing yet another high-performance model.

There’s no official confirmation from the automaker as of this writing, but the general consensus is that Lamborghini will launch a Performante version of the Aventador soon. As you may remember, the Performante is a more extreme version of the Huracan that uses a more powerful engine and race-inspired aerodynamics. Oh, and it’s the fourth quickest car around the Nurburgring as well as the fastest Lambo on the German race track. Yup, it’s quicker than the Aventador SV, which is why a Performante version of the flagship supercar is actually a really good idea. Let’s find out more about it below.

Updated 02/02/2018: Based on the recent rumors and speculations, we created a rendering for the upcoming Aventador Performante.

The Lamborghini Aventador Performante Has Been Spotted and it will be the Most Aggressive Yet

The Lamborghini Aventador Performante Has Been Spotted and it will be the Most Aggressive Yet

Those aero bits are all everywhere

We already know that Lamborghini has big plans for the Aventador’s swan song. What we didn’t know was that those plans include building what might very well be the most ridiculous Lamborghini ever built. New spy photos of the car known as the Aventador Performante show some incredible design details, none more significant than the ridiculous amount of aerodynamic bits that the Italian automaker somehow fit into the supercar’s body.

It’s hard to make them all out with all the swirly camouflage, but if you look closer, you’ll see them in full bloom. The front section, for example, features a more dynamic interpretation of the tiered bumper and splitter combo that the updated Aventador introduced. The air intakes and the aero slits also look to have been revised. It’s a similar story in the side section where the side air intakes look larger, and side skirts look wider.

As fascinating as these observations are, the real magic happens in the rear section of the Aventador Performante. “Stunning” isn’t even a word I’d use to describe it. The diffuser sitting in the bottom section of the rear is ridiculous beyond compare. The exhaust setup appears to be similar to the Huracan Performante. And then there’s the rear wing, which is not only huge but actually adopts a strange design as well. I can’t tell if the lower part of the wing are brackets or uprights, but they do extend outward diagonally, then horizontally where they meet with the wing’s endplates. None of Lamborghini’s past creations, including limited-run versions like the Veneno, Aventador J, and Centenario have wings like this. It’s also worth mentioning that earlier spy photos of the Aventador Performante came without it. For better or worse, this new rear wing configuration is worthy of its own headline.

There’s no word yet on when Lamborghini plans to launch the Aventador Performante, but with the Aventador itself nearing its last legs, don’t be surprised if the Performante version makes its debut sometime this year.

Lamborghini Aventador Could be Replaced by Hybrid Hypercar but the Brand Will Avoid Self-Driving and All-Electric Tech

Lamborghini Aventador Could be Replaced by Hybrid Hypercar but the Brand Will Avoid Self-Driving and All-Electric Tech

Italian automaker wants to balance new technologies with its core roots

In yet another sign that times are changing in Lamborghini, the Italian automaker is reportedly considering a hybrid supercar to serve as a replacement to the Lamborghini Aventador once the latter’s life cycle ends. It’s not a foregone conclusion, but Lamborghini’s head of research and development, Maurizio Reggiani, isn’t about to close the door on the possibility either. On the other hand, don’t expect the Italian automaker to start rolling out the red carpet for electric cars and autonomous vehicles. That’s not happening anytime soon because Lambo is still Lambo, and as such, it still has performance requirements to uphold.

X-Tomi’s Rendering of a Three-Door Urus Proves Lamborghini Should Make One

This is a version of the Urus that we can all get behind

We’re still coming to grips with the long-awaited arrival of the Lamborghini Urus, but that hasn’t stopped artist X-Tomi Design from making us crave once again for a Urus model that may not even come. Just as soon as Lamborghini unveiled the four-door Urus, the rendering genius decided to create a different version of the super SUV, one that has two doors instead of four. This is what a two-door Lamborghini Urus looks like, and it looks incredible.

A Lamborghini Urus Pickup Truck? Yes Please!

A Lamborghini Urus Pickup Truck? Yes Please!

Is Lambo pondering a super truck?

Lamborghini ended 2017 on a high note by unveiled the Urus, its first utility vehicle since the LM002. The Italians are calling it the world’s first SSUV, as in super SUV. And I can’t blame them for doing that. It’s mean, it’s awfully powerful and incredibly fast. Sure, it doesn’t have the V-10 or V-12 engine found in the Huracan and Aventador, but it’s pretty cool with a twin-turbo V-8 too. And word has it a hybrid version might follow soon. But what if Lambo decided to give us a spiritual successor to the LM002 and build a pickup truck version of the Urus?

2020 Lamborghini Urus Performante

2020 Lamborghini Urus Performante

The most extreme SUV ever built!

Lamborghini took the world by surprise back in 2012 when it unveiled the Urus Concept at Pebble Beach. It was the company’s first utility since the LM002 pickup truck and signaled a new direction for the brand. However, the Urus didn’t become a production model until five years later. Launched in late 2017, it became the fastest and most powerful SUV in the world, boasting performance similar to high-profile sports cars. With the Urus now set to hit public roads in 2018, we’re wondering what other versions are planned for the future. A hybrid model is almost a certainty, but is Lambo also considering a higher performance models? I think it does, and it could be very similar to the Huracan Performante.

Likely to wear the same "Performante" badge, the beefed-up SUV would take the Urus into previously uncharted territory in this segment. With more power, a lighter curb weight, and a chassis tuned for racing, the Urus Performante will be the most extreme production SUV I can think of right now. But will it become more than just a rendering? There’s no official confirmation yet, but I don’t see why Lambo would say no to it. There’s plenty of demand for extreme crossovers right now, as well as plenty of rich folks ready to pay in excess of $200,000 for one. Let’s find out what this SUV might bring to the table in my speculative review below.

Oops! Lamborghini Accidentally Showed Off the Urus in a Teaser

It tried to remove the video, but it was too late

Lamborghini revealed a teaser video to show off the Urus’ “Corsa” – Race in Italian – driving mode, but someone is probably in a lot of trouble as there was a shot of the Urus SUV displayed ever so prominently on the infotainment display. As a part of this “accidental” leak, we get a fair look at the front end and the side profile of the brand’s upcoming Urus SUV – the model that’s tasked with pushing the brand’s production numbers beyond the 7,000 example threshold.

An Autonomous Lamborghini? Forget About It!

An Autonomous Lamborghini? Forget About It!

Don’t expect one to arrive now, or in the near future

The concept of zigging when everyone else is zagging is nothing new in the auto industry. Trends are always a big pull in the business, after all, but there are times when not buckling to them is in the best interest of a particular automaker. Take Lamborghini for example. While most of the industry is moving along into adopting different forms of autonomous driving technology, the Raging Bull isn’t joining the party. Not now. Not anytime soon.

Speaking with Digital Trends, Maurizio Reggiani, Lamborghini’s head of research and development, said that the Italian automaker has no plans of introducing autonomous driving to any of its cars in the future. It’s worth noting that Lamborghini also took the same line of thinking when discussing electric cars a few months back. Part of the reason for resisting the urge to go autonomous or electric is that by doing so, the company would effectively rob its customers of the same core principles of driving that it has stood for since, well, it began offering cars. At its roots, Lamborghini is a company that prides itself on giving its customers the most visceral of driving experiences. An autonomous driving Lambo not only removes that experience away from the driver, but it also cuts off the legs of the very principles that it has prided itself on showcasing each and every time a new model comes into the picture. None of this is surprising. There are companies that can embrace autonomous driving and there are those that can’t, or won’t. Lamborghini falls into the latter category, where it should be in the first place.

Can Lamborghini Get Even More Extreme With Its Models?

Can Lamborghini Get Even More Extreme With Its Models?

It’s possible, especially if its race car division has anything to say about it

There are some things in the auto industry that are completely indisputable, one of which is Lamborghini’s reputation for being the creator of some of the most extreme supercars in the world. In the past few years alone, we’ve seen Sant’Agata come up with the Aventador J, Veneno Roadster, and most recently, the Centenario. But what if I told you that Lamborghini can go even deeper into its maniacal side and come up with future cars that border on being complete lunacy? It could actually happen now that the company has announced a closer working relationship between its road car division and the Squadra Corse racing team.

News of this development arrived on the heels of the Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo Evo’s launch, a car that could just as well serve as a preview of what we can expect from the tighter relationship between the two Lambo divisions. No less than the automaker’s motorsport aftersales boss, Silvestro D’Amico, hinted to Autocar the possibilities of what this kind of partnership could create for the brand. “We are still new to motorsport compared to other companies in this field, but already we are having our design department working more closely with the racing side,” he said. “There will be more exchanges of information and technologies.” Think of what these exchanges of information and technologies can do when they’re applied to road-going cars. This kind of thing has been happening in the industry a lot these days, most recently between Mercedes-AMG and the Mercedes Formula One team. We all know what came out of that, so is it possible that Lamborghini will eventually follow the same road?

Lamborghini's Preparing For A New One-Off/Limited Edition Model

Lamborghini’s Preparing For A New One-Off/Limited Edition Model

New beast is all set to follow in the footsteps of the Aventador J, Veneno Roadster, and most recently, the Centenario

When it comes to building one-off supercars, nobody does it quite like Lamborghini. From past examples like the Reventon and the Sesto Elemento to more recent offerings like the Aventador J, the Veneno Roadster, and the Centenario, no automaker has enthralled our imaginations and lamented our lots in life like the Raging Bull. I could wax poetic about all these exotics, but there’s far more pressing news to discuss. Apparently, Lamborghini isn’t done building one-offs just yet. There’s a new one on the way and no less than Lambo’s director of research and development Maurizio Reggiani confirmed as much to Car Advice.

Reggiani didn’t reveal much about this new one-off, and for good reason. What he did say was the company is planning to present its customers with a new one-off (really a “small number of cars” in Lamborghini’s dictionary) supercar that will “introduce some new technology” into the fold. What “new technology” exactly means is the intriguing element of this new supercar, on top of a whole list of other cutting-edge features. As far as a timetable is concerned, Reggiani didn’t spill the beans on that front either, possibly because he didn’t want to take any attention away from the company’s most important new car in recent years, the Lamborghini Urus SUV. That model is scheduled to make its world debut on December 4, 2017. Given the timeframe, it’s possible that this new limited edition Lamborghini will be the automaker’s main attraction at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.

Lamborghini's New Teaser Of The Urus SUV Is Getting Us All Pumped Up

Lamborghini’s New Teaser Of The Urus SUV Is Getting Us All Pumped Up

It’s finally coming in less than three months!

Excuse me for a second for taking a break from the whirlwind that is the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. Given all the head-spinning induced by all these debuts, I think it’s time for a little breather. Let me divert your collective attentions for a quick minute and tell you about a car that’s making headlines, not because it showed up in Frankfurt, but because it’s debuting three months from now in December 2017. That car, ladies and gentlemen, is the Lamborghini Urus, and just as the Italian automaker is grabbing people’s attention in Frankfurt with the Aventador Roadster S, the Italian supercar company has its sight sets on its next big thing.

Truth be told, far too much has been said about the Urus SUV over the years. From skepticism to excitement, doubt to giddiness, Lambo has put us through an emotional roller-coaster with regards to the Urus. And now that it’s three months away from finally making its world debut, the Raging Bull is continuing to build up the hype by releasing a minute-long trailer revolving around the message that Lamborghini is a pioneer above all else. Even the trailer’s title – #SinceWeMadeItPossible – touches on that message, as does the content itself, which pretty much describes Lamborghini as an innovator, rule-breaker, and challenger to the status quo. Regardless of what most of us think of these boasts, it’s hard to argue against any of them when the evidence of the company’s innovation is the very reason why we’re circling December 4 in our calendars. The Urus SUV is finally arriving, folks. Best to save the date this early.

Lamborghini's Future Car Lineup Will Leave Plenty Of Jaws On The Floor

Lamborghini’s Future Car Lineup Will Leave Plenty Of Jaws On The Floor

Insane versions of the Huracan and Aventador are being planned for the future

Now that the Lamborghini Urus is close to hitting dealerships, the Italian automaker is setting its sights on its future, and if new reports are to be believed, that future is going to be packed with enough supercar mayhem to quench the thirst of enthusiasts for a generation. That’s because Lamborghini is now thinking big on plans to usurp the likes of Ferrari and McLaren, and it’s doing with so with a rush of iterations for the Huracán to go with big plans for the eventual successor to the Aventador. If Lambo is successful in giving life to these plans, it could potentially swing the tide of supercar sentiment back to the side of the Raging Bull.

According to Automobile Magazine, Sant’Agata is planning to expand the Huracán lineup to include Speedster and Barchetta versions, which effectively will be lightweight versions of the existing Huracán that will be developed with an eye towards infusing these models with racing credentials. Speaking of lightweight offerings, a lighter version of the Huracán Performante is also in Lambo’s plans, as is a Targa version, a configuration we rarely see from Lamborghini. In fact, you’d have to go all the way back to the super limited Lamborghini Diablo VT Roadster from 1999 as the last Lamborghini to feature a taiga-style roof. On the higher end of the Huracán range, Lamborghini’s future plans could include a hardcore Superveloce model and an even more hardcore GT3 Stradale version. That’s six potential future variants for the just the Huracán, and that doesn’t even include the Huracán Safari, a never-before-done version that will feature, among other things, a height-adjustable suspension, bigger wheel arches, all-terrain body protection panels, all-wheel drive, and four-wheel steering. Oh, Lamborghini reportedly has big plans for the Aventador’s successor, too.

Lamborghini's Next Performance Car Could Draw Inspiration from the Legendary Miura

Lamborghini’s Next Performance Car Could Draw Inspiration from the Legendary Miura

Lambo’s CEO is hinting on a 21st century version of the legendary Miura

Is it possible that Lamborghini’s planned brand expansion is going to include a future car that will be inspired by one of its most iconic models? It’s too early to tell at this point, but Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali did tell Automotive News that the Italian automaker is open to creating a “21st-century interpretation” of the Lamborghini Miura. Now may not be the time for Lamborghini fans to lose their collective minds over this possibility, but if it does come to fruition, well, that’s a different story altogether.

The question now is whether there’s more to what Domenicali hinted at regarding the possibility of a Miura-inspired supercar being developed in time for a launch date sometime between 2025 and 2030. The former head of Ferrari’s Formula One outfit didn’t dive into the specifics, but his comments could play into the company’s plans to expand its model portfolio beyond the Avantador, Huracan, and the upcoming Urus SUV. A Miura-inspired supercar would certainly fit in with what Lamborghini intends to do with its model lineup moving forward, and just as important, it would ignite a nostalgic call-back to one of the company’s most famous models. If we do see this car in the future, expect Lamborghini to throw all its might into making sure that his 21st-century version of the Miura lives up to the legacy of the original model. That’s going to be a very high bar to meet, but Lambo wouldn’t be doing this if it doesn’t have something special in store for all of us.

Lamborghini Strives to Keep the Soul and Avoid Electric Sports Cars for the Time Being

Lamborghini Strives to Keep the Soul and Avoid Electric Sports Cars for the Time Being

There’s just something about a naturally aspirated engine...

There’s just something about a naturally aspirated engine that really complements one’s manhood. It could be a big-block from the oil-hungry 1970s or something newer that’s a bit more fuel efficient. Either way, there’s a certain feeling you get when you fire it up, and the initial rumble radiates through every atom of your body. Sure, turbos and superchargers are fun, but when you can get sheer, unadulterated power from nothing but engine, there’s just something special about it. While the rest of the world is quickly changing over to smaller turbocharged mills and hybrid or all-electric drivetrains, Lamborghini just isn’t feeling the hype, and we probably shouldn’t expect an all-electric sports car with a Lambo badge anytime soon.

According to reports from Car Advice, Lambo’s research and development boss, Maurizio Reggiani, says that the technology is just too expensive and that they still have years left in which they can stick with the current V-10 and V-12 engines that are now in production. “If you talk about super sports cars at the moment, the PHEVs, the electric energy, in general, it is difficult to think it is suitable for a super sports car because that means weight and packaging – otherwise we cannot achieve handling. With regard to hybridization in our super sports car segment, I do believe that we still have years that we can stay with the actual structure of the [current] engines, both V-10 and V-12.”
