All good things must come to an end, and Lamborghini said goodbye to the Aventador after more than ten years, wrapping off the manufacturing of the V12 supercar with an exquisite nod to the one-of-a-kind Miura Roadster concept. Looking ahead, its successor is getting closer given the company’s CEO stated to ABC News the new flagship would debut close to the conclusion of Q1 2023. It will once again be a plug-in hybrid with a brand-new V12 engine, according to Stephan Winkelmann.
Nearly 3,000 individuals have placed orders for the new supercar, even though the formal debut is still a few months away. Only a small number of people have had the chance to witness the automobile, which is already proving to be a commercial success, according to the man in charge at Sant’Agata Bolognese.
Separately, Lamborghini Chief Technical Officer Rouven Mohr told Auto Express that the new mid-engined supercar will produce “greater power, more revs, and more sound.” Recall that the Aventador Ultimate generates 531 pound-feet (720 Newton-meters) of torque from 6,750 rpm and 780 horsepower (574 kilowatts) at an exhilarating 8,500 revolutions per minute. The Sián FKP 37 hybrid’s supercapacitor technology (which won’t be used to replace the Aventador) produced the same 531 lb-ft (720 Nm) from an identical 6,750 rpm and 819 horsepower (602 kW) at 8,500 rpm.
The new V12 engine, according to Rouven Mohr, “will be amazing,” and a battery pack will give it an undisclosed electric range. In an interview with Auto Express, CEO Stephan Winkelmann first called the car “excellent” before adding, “It’s light-footed, and you don’t feel the added weight.” The Sián FKP 37 weighed 1,595 kg (3,516 lbs) before adding fluids, whilst the Ultimate coupe weighed 1,550 kg (3,417 lbs) when dry.
Lamborghini will soon reveal its last gasoline-only vehicle before the Aventador’s replacement makes its appearance in late Q1 2023. According to Stephan Winkelmann, there will only be a few all-terrain Huracan vehicles produced. The concept for a hacked-up supercar was conceived in 2015, but the project wasn’t approved until he returned three years later.
Although the company’s top brass said that you “cannot travel on the dunes of the desert,” the Lamborghini can handle dirt roads because of its greater ground clearance. The naturally aspirated V10 vehicle with all-wheel drive will make its international debut in Miami during the 2022 Art Basel at the beginning of December.
