Lamborghini will retain the V12, but add hybrid tech to go greener

Lamborghini will retain the V12, but add hybrid tech to go greener

- Lamborghini will develop a hybrid V12 for the Aventador-replacement

- Urus will be the first Lambo to be electrified

Lamborghini, the Italian marque, had declared that they would not ditch the V12 as long as they possibly can while the emission noose keeps on tightening. With the physical limitations of the large V12s making it impossible to meet he newer norms, Lamborghini has taken the best way out – electrification. 

No, the next-generation of Lamborghini’s flagship, the Aventador is not going to be an EV. Rather than having an entire electric powertrain, Lamborghini is developing an electrified or a hybrid V12 setup that will rein in the emissions and still give out the sumptuous, hair-raising exhaust wail of the V12. The electrified setup will also offer additional boost to the already humungous power figures and make the Aventador replacement faster than ever.

But, it would not be the first Lamborghini to be electrified. The honour would go to the Urus, where the twin-turbocharged V8 will get electric additions. The VW Group already has the electrified V8 and it is serving in the Porsche Panamera Turbo SE Hybrid and develops 671bhp of power and 850Nm of torque, higher than the Urus’ current output.
