Lamborghini has given details of its future plug-in hybrid supercar. We learn in particular that it will use a brand new chassis.
Lamborghini’s first plug-in hybrid supercar will debut an all-new chassis. Described as “monofuselage”, it will represent “significant” progress for the car’s dynamics and rigidity.
The entire front part of the car will be in carbon fibre, obviously to improve performance, but also safety. The firm of Sant’Agata Bolognese reveals that this new shell gains 10% in weight compared to the Aventador that it replaces. The rigidity of the chassis is progressing by 25% compared to the same model.
With its V12 and its three electric motors, the hypercar will develop more than 1000 horsepower. The one whose code name is LB-744 should show unparalleled performance so far for the brand.
Thanks to a weight gain of 17 kilos for the V12 alone, the increase in weight at the level of the power unit is limited. With three electric motors of 18.5 kilos each, the motorization part will only display a little forty kilos more on the scale compared to the old V12 of the Aventador.
To improve the handling of the model, the 3.8 kWh battery will be installed in the transmission tunnel. Thus, the center of gravity will remain very low. Charging will be done at a maximum power of 7 kW, and Lamborghini ensures that charging while driving will also be very efficient.
