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.

2020 Lamborghini Sian FKP 37
The 2020 Lamborghini Sian is a hybrid supercar that the Italian firm unveiled ahead of the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show. Powered by a V-12 gasoline engine and an electric motor, the Sian is Lambo’s first mass-produced hybrid. However, the supercar is limited to only 63 units, so it’s actually a preview of things to come, like an electrified successor to the Aventador.
Design-wise, the Sian stands on its own by combining a new design language with styling cues inspired by the iconic Lamborghini Countach. Its interior, on the other hand, is based on the Aventador’s, albeit it comes with bespoke elements and fancier features. The Sian also showcases innovative technology, like a state-of-the-art energy recuperating system and a supercapacitor instead of a traditional lithium-ion battery. Let’s find out more about that in the review below.
Lamborghini Confirms Hybrids are Coming, But Condemns the 2020 Geneva Motor Show
Lamborghini’s parent company, Audi, has issued a press release that, among other things, says that Lambo won’t be attending the 2020 Geneva Motor Show. The idea behind this move is that it wants to skip GIMS so that it can focus on “standalone events” where its cars won’t have to share the spotlight with rival models. If you were there last year, you’d know that isn’t really the case – Lambo was in the middle of one of the larger halls and surrounded by cars it doesn’t compete with – but hey, one excuse is as good as any other. There’s a little more to this story, though.
Lamborghini Wants to Rewrite the Book on Electrification and the Sian FKP 37 Was the First Chapter
Lamborghini has slowly been dipping its toes in the ocean that is electrification, but so far, it has yet to go beyond knee-deep. The 2017 Terzo Millennio Concept car previewed Lambo’s future electrification technology, and the new Sian FKP 37 is only a hybrid because Lamborghini was able to develop a small supercapacitor that made hybridization possible without compromising the traditional Lamborghini driving experience. However, this technology is far from ready to be adopted into Lamborghini’s lineup full time, at least not to the extent that the company can create full-fledged series-production hybrid cars. So, Lamborghini needs to rewrite the book on electrification and hybridization – here’s how it plans to do it.
The 2020 Lamborghini Sian is Lambo’s first hybrid and its most powerful car!
Following years of intense development, Lamborghini unveiled its first hybrid production car. Meet the 2020 Lamborghini Sian, the "hybrid super sports car" that combines technology from the Asterion and Terzo Millennio concepts into a limited-edition production model. Set to be unveiled at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show in September, the Sian also introduces Lamborghini’s new design language. More importantly, it’s the fastest Lamborghini ever produced!
Lamborghini Will Hold a Press Conference at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, But What Will it Debut There?
Lamborghini is preparing for a massive unveiling at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, and from the looks of things, it may involve a car that we’ve heard of yet know little about. It’s industry knowledge at this point that Lamborghini is preparing a low-volume hybrid hypercar that would serve as a preview for the replacement model of the Lamborghini Aventador. The car, codenamed LB48H, was supposedly shown to a group of select people in 2018 before it makes its world début sometime this year. Well, it looks like Lamborghini is now preparing to début the hypercar at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, which starts on September 12, 2019. More details about the LB48H should arrive in the leadup to Frankfurt. Buckle those seatbelts, folks. Lamborghini’s hybrid hypercar is coming.
Lamborghini Doesn’t Have a Plug-in Hybrid Supercar Yet and There’s a Damn Good Reason Why
Just as the entire supercar world found itself drawn into the world of hybridization, Lamborghini has steadfastly stood its ground, showing unfailing commitment to its yoke of naturally aspirated V-10 and V-12 engines. That’s all about to change, though, now that the higher-ups at Sant’Agata Bolognese have confirmed plans to launch its first-ever plug-in hybrid hypercar. Don’t look now, but the latest intel surrounding this upcoming model has ties to both the Aventador and the Terzo Millennio Concept that Lambo proudly showed off back in 2017. What does the Italian automaker have in store for the rest of the hypercar world? A game-changer of unworldly proportions.
Lamborghini’s First Hybrid will Debut in Frankfurt as - You Guessed It - a Special Edition Model
The wait for Lamborghini’s first hybrid supercar will come to an end at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show. The yet-to-be-named hybrid monster is a touchpoint for the Italian automaker as it lays the foundation for its own hybrid plans for the future. For now, the hybrid supercar goes by the name “LB48H.” Details are still scarce at this point, but Lamborghini is expected to take styling cues from the Terzo Millenio EV Concept it unveiled last year and graft them onto the hybrid supercar. This model also holds the distinction for being the rarest among all hybrid exotics that have been released in recent years. Lamborghini’s building only 63 units — the 63-car volume is a nod to 1963, the year Lamborghini was born — and, unfortunately for all of us, all 63 units are already accounted for.
A Successor to the Lamborghini Espada Could Hit the Market by 2025
Lamborghini Wants to Take on the Aston Martin Valkyrie and McLaren Senna!
Lamborghini CEO Stephan Domenicali has said that Lamborghini is looking at developing a new high-end niche hypercar with “extreme-aero”. The car would compete with the likes of the Aston Martin Valkyrie and the McLaren Senna. I would say that its buyers would probably consider that delayed Mercedes-AMG One as well. Nevertheless, the new mad, extreme Lamborghini may well be on its way. It would be the maddest, wildest, and naughtiest Lamborghini of all time. Can’t get better than that, can it now?
Lamborghini’s First-Ever Hybrid Hypercar Could Be An 838-Horsepower Powerhouse
Now that the buzz surrounding the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is subsiding, it’s now time to turn our attention to Lamborghini’s first-ever hypercar. The latest intel on the model — we only know it today as the “LB48H” — suggests that the hybrid hypercar will produce 838 horsepower, making it the most powerful Lamborghini ever created. Like the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ 63, only 63 units of the hybrid hypercar are expected to be produced, each carrying a rumored price tag of $2.5 million.
Lamborghini’s First Hybrid Supercar, the LB48H, Will Resemble the Terzo Millennio Concept
Lamborghini is in the process of cooking up a new one-off vehicle, codenamed the LB48H. The project is said to be far along in the development that a prototype was showcased at a private event in Italy a few weeks ago. The supercar is expected to carry a hybrid powertrain and will be launched sometime in 2020. If this car turns into what we think it is, this could be Lamborghini’s first venture into the world of hypercars.
