Aventador successor not previewed by Sian
By Mark Smeyers on October 4. 2019 in LamboNEWS.
Automobili Lamborghini SpA has simply unveiled their restricted version Sián, their first hybrid manufacturing mannequin, albeit a really restricted manufacturing and as a substitute of utilizing conventional batteries like different hybrid vehicles, the Lamborghini Sián makes use of a 48V supercapacitor, however head of design, Mitja Borkert insist the Sián shouldn’t be a preview of the Aventador successor that was deliberate to be launched in 2020, however we is perhaps admiring a Roadster model of the Sián within the close to future.
Again in 2007, when the Reventon was proven as an evolution on the Murciélago, it clearly confirmed the path Automobili Lamborghini SpA was taking with the design of the Aventador that was unveiled in 2011, however evidently mind-set has modified, and the Aventador successor will likely be a very new design, not based mostly on any of the particular few-off fashions we have seen up to now based mostly on the Aventador, just like the Veneno, the Centenario and now the Sián.
What will likely be taken into the following era of the Lamborghini flagship is the hybrid setup, however as a substitute of utilizing a supercapacitor just like the Sián, the brand new mannequin will revert to the following era of batteries, as a supercapacitor was deemed to not be probably the most fascinating resolution for an precise, future manufacturing mannequin, and whereas some rumors have talked about the brand new Lamborghini flagship to ditch the V12 engine and go for a V8 Twin Turbo setup, this has been denied throughout an interview on the 2019 IAA, the Lamborghini flagship will hold a V12 engine, however with added electrical motors naturally.
In reality, some publications have already talked about Lamborghini is engaged on getting the V12 engine to adjust to present laws on the subject of emission requirements, so whereas it is probably not the V12 we all know and love at the moment, the highest of the road Raging Bull will nonetheless have this huge engine, and with the Sián already delivering 785hp from the engine alone, we anticipate the Aventador alternative to have a mixed, hybrid energy output of 900hp or extra, with a subsequent SV or Performante model breaking the 1,000hp barrier.
The Aventador successor is not going to be utilizing a supercapacitor just like the Sián as a result of presently the latter could have a really restricted motion radius on electrical energy alone, with the one put in within the Sián they might have the ability to drive about 5 to 10 km on electrical energy solely, which is manner too little for an precise manufacturing hybrid, so the upcoming Aventador alternative will certainly use Lithium-ion batteries in line with Lamborghini’s CTO Maurizio Reggiani.
And proper now this expertise is already utilized in a manufacturing automotive from inside the VAG Group, the brand new Porsche Panamera E-Hybrid has a V8 as a plug-in-hybrid/Lithium-ion battery setup, which already delivers 670hp … add the 130hp hybrid half to the Lamborghini V12 engine that places out 785hp on her personal and we find yourself with a 925hp mixed output … even with the added weight of the hybrid system this could ship some very respectable efficiency and radius, even on electrical energy alone.
Whereas the Aventador has been launched again in 2011, all of us anticipated the successor to be proven already, or a minimum of on the 2020 Geneva Motor Present … however these days the manufacturing unit has been hinting on the reality it’d nonetheless be a couple of years earlier than we’ll get a very new mannequin, 2022 and even 2024 is being talked about over the previous few months, that will imply one other two or three years of Aventador manufacturing, taking the general numbers nicely over the 10,000 models mark (word the Siàn on the IAA has chassis 9082, so over 9,000 Aventador tubs have been made already). Right now we’ve the Aventador SVJ being constructed to satisfy the orders and the Aventador SVJ Roadster manufacturing getting nicely underway … but when this mannequin has to outlive one other two to a few years I am certain we’ll be getting but extra evolutions … one among them being a track-only Aventador SVR that has been talked about these days, however my guess is we’ll be seeing a ultimate version Aventador quickly, maybe not on the 2020 Geneva present, however by 2021 on the newest.
So what is going to occur with the Huracan and Urus which can be at present promoting very nicely, particularly the Huracan EVO and EVO Spyder are wonderful vehicles to drive, and even rival the Huracan Performante on the observe … additionally word the manufacturing for the Huracan Performante has been stopped, you possibly can’t order that one anymore, solely the EVO and EVO Spyder can be found at your native dealership (the Huracan LP580-2 or the RWD is not out there anymore both I used to be informed) … so there have to be one thing new on the horizon for the V10 vary too, the unique Huracan was launched in 2014, with the Performante model proven in 2017, the EVO got here out in 2019, however will Lamborghini wait three extra years to unleash the extra track-oriented model of the EVO, or will they arrive round sooner, maybe a Huracan GT, or Huracan STO … Tremendous Trofeo Omologato?
It’s too quickly to speak a few successor to the Huracan presently, but it surely might very nicely be the V10 engine will likely be gone when that occurs, because the entry-level Lamborghini may get a V8 engine, with a hybrid system naturally, it’s secure to say each the Aventador and the Huracan will likely be changed by fashions with hybrid energy, that’s unavoidable on the automotive scene of the longer term.
What in regards to the Urus, at this second in time, one of the best promoting mannequin within the vary? From what we picked up there are two evolutions within the making, for one we’ll be seeing a hybrid model of the Urus very quickly, making it the primary actual manufacturing mannequin at Sant’Agata (the Sián is taken into account a few-off mannequin), and rumor has it Lamborghini is planning a street-legal model of the Urus ST-X Idea, a extra highly effective version of the present Urus derived from that track-only mannequin … so a brand new Urus mannequin may take middle stage on the 2020 Geneva Motor Present in March, because the Aventador successor is not prepared, and it is too quickly to launch one other Huracan mannequin.
After which there are the much more distant rumors that go round on a regular basis … a fourth mannequin has been talked about in interviews with top-level administration at Lamborghini. If the Urus was a hit a fourth mannequin is perhaps becoming a member of the ranks in Sant’Agata, and this is perhaps a front-engine mannequin, lastly that incredible trying Estoque might evolve right into a manufacturing mannequin in spite of everything, a high-end, luxurious GT mannequin made by Lamborghini is the following logical evolution in my eyes, maybe not a four-door, or not even a four-seater, however a Lamborghini GT 2+2 with the engine up entrance and extra practicality in comparison with the flagship Aventador or the Huracan … a mannequin like that has been lacking from the Lamborghini vary for manner too lengthy and could be an ideal homage to the heritage of Ferruccio Lamborghini and the unique 350GT and 400GT 2+2 fashions from the Sixties.
Additionally word the Squadra Corse division has been hinting at getting into a Lamborghini in endurance racing, the well-known 24h de LeMans being one among them, presently we’ve the Huracan Tremendous Trofeo and the profitable Huracan GT3, each of their second evolution already, however the lure of LeMans and different endurance racing has been sturdy, the Huracan GTD has been entered in longer races within the US already, and with success, however Squadra Corse desires to take this additional and create a Lamborghini LM mannequin now … so we is perhaps seeing one thing very low, large and quick within the close to future.
