The next Lamborghini Hybrid V12 ready to replace the 12-year-old Aventadorwho finished production this year is likely to start at a higher cost – but the Italian marque insists that has more to do with rising material costs than hybridisation.
Scheduled to be unveiled in early 2023, the new Lamborghini V12 flagship will use an all-new chassis, V12 engine and hybrid system which the Italian brand says is entirely in-house. The new model has already more than 3000 orders.
Talk to CarExpert At the opening of the revised Lamborghini dealership in Brisbane this week, the brand’s regional manager for Asia-Pacific, Francesco Scardaoni, said the new model will see a price hike due to rising fuel costs. materials.
“The cost price will be slightly higher than Aventador, but not because of the hybrid but because of the materials, the cost of the materials, the cost of the parts,” Scardaoni said. CarExpert.
The new V12 will launch the onslaught of the new Lamborghini model which will also be followed by the Replacement of Huracan in 2024.
“2023 is the year we start phase two of our electrification, our plans to launch Lamborghini’s hybridization phase,” Scardaoni said.
“Of course it’s a huge transition, a huge change for the company and we wanted to do that with the flagship and that’s the V12. The masterpiece that the company started with in 1963 and continued for all these years and this is our legacy. It is important to start a new era with the V12.
When the Aventador was launched in 2011, it became the first production car to feature a carbon fiber monocoque chassis. His replacement is also expected to bring a list of firsts to market and Lamborghini says he will be best in class, suggesting he should fight for Ferrari’s Ballistic SF90 V8 hybrid. We anticipate that some of the technologies in the hypercar realm will make it to the “mainstream”.
“The new Aventador has to create another successful story like we did in 2011. It will be a very important car and you will see the car soon and we are sure it will be a success. It is more capable than the current one. .
In better news for interested buyers, Lamborghini is set to increase production of the new V12 over the Aventador, with Scardaoni admitting the factory will likely have a higher capacity than before.
The Italian brand has also addressed the airbag compliance issue it had with its racing seats affecting markets like Australia and Canada. The new models will all be optional with racing seats unlike the Hurricane STO and Technical.
