By the point you might be studying this, Linea Aventador on the Lamborghini manufacturing unit in Sant’Agata, Bologna, Italy may have stopped constructing the flagship V12, manufacturing of the Aventador was halted already, however an unlucky accident with a transport ship carrying a number of of the restricted version Aventador LP780-4 Ultimae pressured them to start out up manufacturing once more to make up for the misplaced items at sea, and whereas the Sian, Sian Roadster and Countach LPI 800-4 are all primarily based on the Aventador chassis, these restricted editions fashions are all however constructed too, so I’m positive Lamborghini is getting ready the Linea Aventador for the successor over the approaching Summer time months to start out the ‘pre-production’ run to verify all of the tooling is as much as spec for the successor.
Proper now, the model new Lamborghini flagship take a look at mules have all been constructed individually from the common meeting line, out of sight of peeking eyes of tourists to the manufacturing unit, and whereas I’m positive the primary checks with the brand new V12 hybrid engine have been performed hiding in an Aventador shell, by now we’re lastly attending to see the Aventador successor take a look at mule being road-tested, and CarScoops.com simply managed to pay money for some wonderful high-res pictures of this new Raging Bull, and whereas she’s sporting the standard ‘swirly’ camouflage wrap, a few of the design components could be clearly acknowledged now.
There’s a lot to debate on the outside of this new Lamborghini model, which is likely to be known as the Revuelto, as this identify has been lately trademarked by Lamborghini, however personally, I’m most impressed by the rear of this take a look at mule, personally, I simply love the place of these quad exhaust suggestions, excessive up on the rear part, in between Y-shaped taillights that appear to have been impressed by each the Veneno and the Centenario, and in the event you look actually shut to those spy pictures, I’m considering that part above the taillights can really transfer upward, like an adjustable rear wing.
I actually just like the Lamborghini take a look at driver’s humorousness, placing a decal of the Aventador taillights over the camouflage of this take a look at mule, nevertheless it’s clear this automobile comes with an intricate rear diffuser, with decrease sections protecting the rear wheels, not like on the Centenario the place particles is well kicked up from the broad wheels onto the clear carbon fiber diffuser, on this prototype it seels they wished to keep away from that whereas nonetheless permitting some huge airflow within the heart of the rear fascia.
There are some warning labels to be discovered on this take a look at mule, above the exhaust pipes there’s a warning, most likely in regards to the warmth, however probably the most fascinating is the electrical energy warning label on the facet of this new Lamborghini, the photograph doesn’t have sufficient decision to have the ability to learn it, however I’m positive it’s a warning in regards to the batteries or the charging plug being in that neighborhood, be mindful we’re speaking a couple of V12 engine with a hybrid setup, so there are electrical motors and batteries to be fitted, throughout an interview in regards to the Sian they clearly said the manufacturing automobile wouldn’t use a Supercapacitor, however go for extra conventional batteries as a substitute.
One other fascinating element we will see in these new spy pictures is the very fact Lamborghini appears to be going for a Flying Buttress design behind the facet home windows, most likely to direct air onto the newly designed engine cowl, with vents on both facet and what appears to be a reasonably small rear window, I’m positive this new Lamborghini flagship will include a rear-view digital camera system, maybe even a 360-degree one to ease parking this broad and low supercar, or will the brand new Lamborghini enterprise into the hypercar market?
There’s an ongoing dialogue about what makes a hypercar as a substitute of a supercar, some go for the ability output, others quote the value, however I assume it’s a mix of issues, so the brand new Lamborghini flagship would possibly very properly turn into a hypercar after we take into account horsepower, let’s take into consideration this for a second, the outgoing Aventador Ultimae got here with 780 hp from the NA V12 engine, everyone knows that this new flagship will include a newly developed V12 engine, so energy output might be even larger … or not, with the Aventador having a 6.5-Liter V12, there may be nothing holding Lamborghini again to create a smaller displacement V12 unit to secure house and weight, one thing the hybrid addition will eagerly eat into.
If we take into account the Asterión for comparability, that automobile got here with three electrical motors, every able to delivering 100 hp, so to succeed in a complete energy output of over 1,000 hp, Lamborghini solely has to get this new V12 engine to ship barely over 700hp in the event that they go for a three-motor setup, add an electrical motor to every of the entrance wheels, and have the V12 energy the rear wheels with the third electrical motor positioned as on the Sian and Countach LPI 800-4 … that will make sense I feel.
If I’m trustworthy, I fairly just like the styling on this take a look at mule, if the brand new Lamborghini V12 Hybrid seems like this, I’m positive she’ll be one other profitable model, a worthy inheritor to the Aventador, and a powerful competitor for different supercars and hypercars on the market, and let’s not overlook that the Aventador drew as a lot consideration as any hypercar, however for a fraction of the fee, and I’m assured the Lamborghini Revuelto, or no matter they may name this 2023 flagship, will do precisely the identical factor … draw consideration, as a Lamborghini ought to.
