Hoping for Good Luck!
Lamborghini has declared that its successor to the Aventador, dubbed LB744, will provide an entire array of thirteen different driving experiences. Joining the recognized and beloved range of dynamic types are three advanced operating settings – Recharge, Hybrid, and Performance. Before anybody can discover their purpose, the vehicle must initially be revealed.
These thrilling driving experiences are made real due to a state-of-the-art methodology utilized when crafting the modernised Lamborghini, which features improvements in almost every aspect – from its frame, power system architecture, aerodynamic profile and, of course, electrified components. For those who have not kept up with news, the LB744 will be a V12 non-turbocharged plug-in hybrid vehicle.
Focusing on the powertrain design, Lamborghini has activated the optimal weight distribution in its vehicles- emphasizing 44% of the powerset at the front, and 56% at the back. At the core of this structure lies the 6.5-liter V12 engine, complemented by three electric engines, along with a lithium-ion battery pack.
The addition of electric motors and a battery pack is nothing out of the ordinary for supercars, however, how it’s laid out is what truly matters. LB744 makes use of two electric motors in the front to drive its segregated wheels, while the third electric motor sits atop the transmission which lies behind the V12 engine. As there is no mechanical connection between the front and back, the spot normally reserved for the gearbox now contains the battery instead.
As per the statement of Lamborghini, the handling of the automobile has been boosted by augmenting the rigidity of its anti-roll bars by 11% in front and 50% at the stern. The power steering has also diminished by 10% when compared to the Aventador Ultimae. With this already sharp car, we can only hypothesise about its capabilities on specially created Bridgestone Potenza Sport tires that have an even greater footprint than mentioned before.
Lambo is unveiling a state-of-the-art torque vectoring system, labeled as Dinamica Veicolo 2.0, using their LB744 prototype. Predictions were indeed borne out by the occurrence of electric motors, which assisted in intensifying the preexisting four-wheel-drive and four-wheel-steering models.
Most torque vectoring systems rely on brakes, but the LB744 will only use them when “strictly necessary.” In most cases, deceleration will be handled by the front e-axle and the single electric motor at the rear, which not only reduces the stress on the brakes but also sends charge to the batteries. This approach is more precise as well.
It has now been established that the LB744 operates on Lamborghini’s cutting-edge, aviation-derived monofusolage platform, which provides an impressive 10 percent weight reduction relative to the Aventador framework whilst also standing 25 percent stronger. Owing to its lesser heft and remarkable deceleration abilities, this is expected to offer a driving experience unlike any other.
The brakes used are Carbon Ceramic Brakes Plus systems featuring 10 pistons on the front, instead of the typical 6, coupled with a 410 x 38-mm disc, which has seen an increase of 10 mm against those located in the Ultimae. At the back are 4-piston calipers with 390 x 32-mm discs – a jump of 10 mm in comparison to their counterparts.
Lamborghini has now verified that running aerodynamics will have a decisive role in LB744. We are well aware of the skill that Lambo has with regards to this type of concept, all thanks to the Huracan Performante and its astonishing acts from 2017.
For a second time, Lambo is utilising the Ultimae as a reference point and LB744 will feature 61% additional downforce at the front and 66% extra at the rear. This has been enabled due to a novel splitter in the front and roof configuration that assists in directing air towards the back wing. All of these aerodynamic elements collaborate with the active wishbone suspension. The amount of downforce can be adjusted permitting the car to adjust the suspension and rear wing in real-time. This essentially confirms the theory that the back wing will alter its location in a manner comparable to Porsche GT3 RS.
Aerodynamics don’t just help with cooling of the front brakes, but also amass airflow from below the car and then direct it towards the cooling facility for the back brakes.
We can now effortlessly consider Recharge, Hybrid and Performance. These driving options don’t operate individually; instead, they interact with already established City, Strada, Sport, plus Corsa modes. Via two distinct rotators placed on the steering wheel, drivers can pick from these flying conditions.
The two options are combined based on your driving needs. If you’re going through a bustling urban area and wish to make the voyage utilising only battery energy, it is suggested to choose Hybrid together with Citta (City) setting. While in Sport outward view, if the battery runs low, select Recharge to promptly replenish its charge. Primarily, the V12 serves as a generator offering only 180hp when working in front-wheel-drive mode, however an all-electric mode with AWD is accessible. This providing an opportunity to navigate slippery terrain with electrical power – backing up the hill.
The powerplant of the Performance model presents its entire 1,001 hp, while all of its torque vectoring systems are prepared to be put into motion. The transmission is primed for shorter shifting times, and its aerodynamics are maximized for effectiveness.
It would appear that there is not much else that can be uncovered; as a result, one should look forward to the new halo Lamborghini arriving any day now.
