Impressive Sound at Low Speeds from New Engine, Not Quite V10
The successor to the Lamborghini Huracan has been seen undergoing testing near the Lamborghini headquarters in Sant’Agata Bolognese. With a sleek and dynamic design, this new baby Lambo was covered in thick camouflage and strategic details in an attempt to deceive bystanders and photographers.
The freshly released footage is concise yet offers a close examination of the car, and most importantly, we are treated to the sound of its hybrid motor roaring. The silhouette may be reminiscent of the Huracan, but there are clear upgrades rather than a complete overhaul. The backside seems more intricately designed, opting for a smoother appearance instead of the sharp edges seen on the Huracan. It is anticipated that the Revuelto’s bold and eye-catching features will rub off on its younger sibling.
Mitja Borkert, the leader of Lamborghini’s design team, affirmed this statement at the unveiling of the Revuelto model. He mentioned that we can anticipate a continuation of the current Huracan design when its successor debuts later this year.
It is widely anticipated that the upcoming Lamborghini model will have the iconic look of a true Lamborghini. However, there has been much speculation regarding its performance and sound. While no official statement has been made by the automaker, there are rumors circulating that suggest the new model will feature a V8 engine with a plug-in hybrid system. The Italian luxury car manufacturer has been dedicating efforts towards developing a new electrified V8 for the esteemed Le Mans race, leading to the possibility of these advancements being integrated into their road vehicles. Furthermore, top executives have confirmed that a customized platform will be utilized for this highly anticipated release.
It can be assumed that the upcoming Lamborghini Huracan will not incorporate the electrified V8 engine from the upcoming Urus PHEV. As a high-performance sports car, Lamborghini will most likely strive to infuse the Huracan’s successor with its unique and exotic identity. According to sources, the new model will feature an all-new twin-turbo system that is capable of reaching 10,000 rpm.
Fortunately, the finalized version of this model presents a more thrilling prospect compared to its predecessor. While idling or driving at slower speeds, the V8 emits a rich tone that may not be as intense as what we’re accustomed to. Considering Ferrari’s ability to make turbocharged V8s roar, our expectations are high that Lamborghini will also impress in this regard.
According to rumors, the latest engine will function in a distinctive fashion, as the turbos will only engage at approximately 7,000 rpm. This may offer the desired auditory excitement, but a straight V10 will forever be more thrilling.
The upcoming replacement of the R8 with an electric model marks a significant change for the baby Lamborghini. No longer will it be ridiculed as a mere luxurious version of an Audi, but its distinct personality is set to become even more attractive. However, this does not mean that Sant’Agata faced any difficulties in selling the Huracan. The only thing left for us to do is to anticipate the unveiling, which we anticipate will take place later this year.
