Lamborghini’s First EV Will Be Radically Different From Anything it Sells Today
Lamborghini’s first plug-in hybrid, the successor to the Aventador is set to go on sale in 2023. it will be joined by the end of 2024 by plug-in hybrid versions of both the Huracan and the Urus. But the first fully electric Lamborghini will arrive in 2028. It will be an all-new model - the fourth in the company’s lineup - and it will be followed by an all-electric Urus SUV.
Spyshots: An Early Look at the 2023 Lamborghini Urus Evo
With Ferrari preparing to unveil the Purosangue with more than 800 horsepower under the hood, we were expecting Lamborghini to do something about its 640-horsepower Urus in order to stay relevant. However, Ferrari shows no fear, as this updated Huracan Evo shows that very little is changing for the brand’s resident super SUV.
Lamborghini is Learning to Embrace the Challenges and Advantages of Going Electric
Brands like Lamborghini are synonymous with thoughts of exotic beauty, performance, and emotion. It’s that way by design, and all three factors have been brought together time and time again to form some of the world’s greatest cars. This holds true for modern cars like the Lamborghini Aventador, for example, or the Lamborghini Sian and the Lamborghini Urus. But, even if you look to the past, models like the Gallardo, Diablo, and the Murcielago all follow the same basic recipe: performance and beauty come together to create an emotional experience – an experience that is capable of striking deep into the heart of nearly every automotive enthusiast on the planet.
This time-tested recipe, however great it is, seems to be in danger as the industry shifts into full-scale electrification. Venturing into the unknown leaves us with doubt that the element of emotion can survive in a world without internal combustion engines. The truth is that it can, and it will, because brands like Lamborghini won’t let it die.
Digital Artist Re-Imagines Lambo’s Upcoming V-12 Hybrid
The days of a raging bull with a V-12 as we know it are numbered. However, we do know that as a last hurrah, Lambo will pair its naturally aspirated V-12 along with a hybrid system of some sort. Test mules of the Hybrid-V12 Lambo have already been spotted. While that car is still some time away, a digital artist (uness_design) re-imagines the upcoming flagship V-12 Hybrid with these renders. Let’s break down the design.
Lamborghini Prepares A Hotter Urus Performante Version
In 2022, Lamborghini will unveil two new versions of the Urus - as the company has already confirmed in a previous statement. One of the two versions will be the facelift version of the Urus - called EVO - which has been spied many times before. The second version is still a mystery - or it was until today.
Our spy photographers caught a new version of the Urus out for some testing sessions. It will either be called Performante or Tecnica and it should be unveiled before the end of 2022.
Here’s Why The 2023 Lamborghini Huracan Tecnica Is The Ultimate Huracan
Lamborghini loves taking its time with all its iconic models. The Lamborghini Countach was produced for 16 years (1974-1990) while the Lamborghini Diablo stayed around for 11 years (1990-2001), and the Aventador – for 10 years (2011-2021). The Huracan is shaping up to be the latest example of unusually long production. The mid-engine model has already been on the market for eight years, and it just got its 11th iteration, in the form of the 2023 Huracan Tecnica. It seems to be the pinnacle of what the platform can achieve and here’s what makes it the ultimate Huracan.
Confirmed: Lamborghini Aventador Successor to Feature V-12 Hybrid Powertrain
2021 was a big year for Lamborghini as it saw sales increase over 2019 “by” six-percent, and over 2020 by roughly 23-percent. Most of the improvement in sales can be attributed to the brand’s understanding of its consumer base and the launch of the Lamborghini Urus which has, quite literally, become a problem. It won’t be long before Lamborghini bids farewell to ICE-only power, and part of that transition involves the next-gen Aventador or its successor as it probably won’t carry the Aventador name. That successor is quite a special vehicle and while we don’t know much about it, it’s been largely assumed that it would be a hybrid of some kind. Now, we’ve received confirmation that it will, in fact, be a hybrid, but there’s a lot more to it than that.
Here’s An Insight To What The Next Lamborghini V-12 Flagship Would Look Like
With the Lamborghini Aventador officially axed, many wondered what the next flagship Lambo would look like and what engine will it have. While it has been confirmed that the Aventador successor will still have a naturally-aspirated V-12 engine, the prototype is still heavily camouflaged. Luckily, there are enough visible design cues to give us a good idea of what the big “Lambo” would look like. It comes from TheSketchMonkey, and from what Lamborghini has done in the past, we believe this one is quite close to reality.
This Could Be The 2023 Lamborghini Huracan JV Stradale!
It looks like Lamborghini is preparing to launch two different Huracan models in 2022. Next to the Huracan Sterrato caught testing back in January 2022, the Italian company will also launch a second Huracan model, rumored to be called the JV Stradale.
Our spy photographers caught this interesting prototype out for a testing session during cold winter conditions.
The 2023 Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato Shows Us That Taking A Supercar Off-Roading Is Now A Reality
Lamborghini tested some uncharted waters back in 2019 when it unveiled an all-terrain supercar concept based on the Huracan called the Huracan Sterrato. Well, not exactly unchartered since the company has produced the LM002, but you get the gist. As it turns out, the folks from Sant’Agata Bolognese weren’t just flirting with the idea. Our spy photographers spotted the Huracan Sterrato in the wild, suggesting that the off-road supercar is going to production and it could come out as early as this year!
Updated 05/12/2022 The Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato was spotted testing on the road in Germany with no camo and a big intake on the roof.
The Lamborghini Urus EVO was Caught Undisguised in the Arctic!
Lamborghini recently announced that it was planning launch four new models in 2022, and while we don’t know everything, we know that the Aventador’s V-12 replacement should be one of them and another will be the car that you see here: The Lamborghini Urus EVO. These new spy shots give us a little bit of insight into what we can expect from the updated Urus, and right away, it’s easy to spot the updated front fascia with revised air intakes. These are wider and more eye catching than before. This prototype doesn’t feature any kind of change to the headlights, however, it could be in the cards before it’s debut.
The rear design will also change a bit, as you can see from the new rear fascia. The taillights are still the same as the current model, but these too could change. This is a mid-cycle update, but it’s been said that the facelifted Urus could debut with a little more power under the hood. The current Urus delivers 641 horsepower and 626 pound-feet of torque from its 4.0-liter V-8, and reasonable expectation would be around 655 horsepower. Why not more? Well, since the Urus Hybrid will likely have the same powertrain as the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid, it will have 671 horsepower and 663 pound-feet of torque, and it will probably be the most powerful of the lineup. So, the non-hybrid Urus can’t exceed those figures.
For now, we don’t know much more, but check out the gallery below to see the new spy shots for yourself!
The Lamborghini Aventador’s Successor Spied, And It Has A V-12!
When Lamborghini launched the special edition Aventador Ultimae LP 780-4, we knew the end of an era was coming. After a decade on the market, the Aventador is finally going to be retired. Previous rumors suggested that it will be the last Lamborghini model to feature a V-12 engine, but it looks that Lamborghini is not ready just yet to give up on the V-12.
A successor for the Aventador is right around the corner, and despite many rumors, it will continue offering a V-12 engine- it’s a hybridized engine, that’s true, but still a V-12.
The V-12 Hybrid Lamborghini Aventador Has Finally Been Spotted
Back in July this year, Lamborghini debuted the LP780 Ultimae. Well, the name gives it away, doesn’t it? The Lamborghini Ultimae is apparently the ultimate expression of the Aventador line and blends elements from the Aventador S as well as the Aventador SVJ.
It is the last Lamborghini to feature a naturally aspirated V-12 engine. However, while that car marks the end of the line for the glorious V-12, sort of, the folks at Santa Agata Bolognese say that the V-12 is destined to live on for some more time.
Lamborghini Teases The New Countach Yet Again
Update 08/12/2021: The new Lamborghini Countach is leaked. Scroll down to see the images and learn more about it
Lamborghini took the whole world by surprise when it announced that the ‘Countach’ nameplate is making a comeback three decades after it was sent into oblivion. Although nothing much was revealed other than a silhouette of the wedge-shaped car, the Italian automaker decided to continue hyping the car by revealing a few more teaser pictures within a couple of days of the first announcement. Lamborghini took to Instagram to upload three more images of the upcoming Countach that suggest that it could arrive sooner than expected. Are you as pumped up about it as we are?
Lamborghini Is Resurrecting One Of Its Most Iconic Names
Sit down, if you are standing up, and take a deep breath because one of the most renowned cars of all time is supposedly getting a revival; and no, this is not a joke. A new Lamborghini Countach is en route, and the Italian automaker has officially confirmed it.
The Countach turns 50 this year, and it was only last week that we brought you a story on a designer re-imagining a Neo-Retro Lamborghini Countach. The rendering featured the sleek design aesthetic of early iterations of the Supercar, balanced with hints of modernity and performance.
Should Lamborghini Finally Give Us the Estoque
Do you remember the Estoque? Yes, that evocative sedan that Lambo showed us more than a decade ago. The concept car broke cover at the 2008 Paris Motor Show. This, of course, was pre-Aventador, back when Lamborghini was just trying to garner market reaction to the idea of a four-door sedan.
Lamborghini Might Have a Dirty Little Secret
As it turns out, Lamborghini might have a surprise for us in the store. Hushed talks on the internet report that the automaker is prepping to launch a Sian-based hypercar to pay homage to the 50th anniversary of the Countach. But, nothing is official at this moment, so take it with a pinch of salt.
The Lamborghini Aventador’s Successor Might Have An Electrified V12!
With a decade on the market and God knows how many special editions and versions, the Lamborghini Aventador will soon be sent into the history books. That, however, won’t happen until Lamborghini comes up with a hybrid powertrain that will allow natural aspiration to live on for the company’s V-12 without conflicting with the ever-stricter emission regulations.

To Hell With Emissions: Lamborghini is Planning Two New V12 Supercars
Just like every other industry, the automotive industry follows certain trends. This means, that for one reason or another, car manufacturers need to adapt to different scenarios. In more recent times, this involves a transition to more efficient powertrains. Even AMG announced that it is moving away from V-8 engines in favor of turbo-fours and hybrid technology. With this in mind, Lamborghini recently announced their future plans involving two new V-12 models.
