Our 2019 Geneva Motor Present preview
By Mark Smeyers on January 30. 2019 in LamboNEWS.
What may we count on Automobili Lamborghini SpA to indicate us in just a few weeks on the 2019 Geneva Motor Present?
Lots of rumors point out a brand new, extremely restricted version LB48H mannequin primarily based on the present V12 flagship model of the Aventador, however with the ‘H’ within the identify everyone talks a few hybrid system with numerous horsepower … making an allowance for the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ that’s being constructed as we converse in Sant’Agata packs a minimum of 770 bhp at 8,500 rpm from the NA V12 engine, including some electrical motors may simply push energy past the 800 bhp mark, some sources point out a complete energy output of 843 hp.
Everyone knows Hybrid energy is the long run for Lamborghini, CEO Stefano Domenicali already confirmed each the Aventador and the Huracan successors shall be including electrical motors to their naturally aspirated engines … so having a Hybrid restricted version earlier than the successor is unveiled would make good sense.
Aventador SVJ Roadster
In case you would check out the manufacturing line in Sant’Agata right this moment you’ll discover a whole lot of Aventador SVJ Coupe being constructed, final week solely a single Aventador S Roadster was being completed, all different vehicles ‘in the works’ have been SVJ … however we nonetheless haven’t seen a Roadster model of this prime of the road model, and we’re positive Lamborghini will provide an open-top SVJ sooner or later … however time is working out.
Will we be capable of admire an Aventador SVJ Roadster in early March already? Likelihood is excessive, everyone knows the Aventador shall be changed by a brand new mannequin in 2020 and at present the manufacturing facility can construct about 1,200 Aventador annually … 2019 has simply began, so if Lamborghini needs to start out constructing the successor in 2020 with an unveil at subsequent years Geneva Motor Present they may most likely need to cease constructing the Aventador in late 2019, to allow them to convert the meeting line to the brand new mannequin.
Let’s add this up … this is able to imply about 10 months of Aventador manufacturing is left … about 1,000 items, they’re constructing 900 items of the Aventador SVJ Coupe, however that’s already ongoing, so let’s say they nonetheless should make half of these, 450 items. However Aventador SVJ Roadster manufacturing hasn’t began but, neither manufacturing of the LB48H (Coupe and maybe a Roadster too?) … so, in whole about 550 ‘spots’ are left to be constructed this yr … 25 LB48H and 25 LB48H Roadster … that leaves 500 Aventador SVJ Roadster to be constructed earlier than the top of the yr …
Huracan EVO Spyder
Personally, I believe it’s too quickly for Lamborghini to indicate the Spyder model of their newest Huracan incarnation, the Huracan EVO has simply been on a dynamic launch within the Center-East … the Coupe will certainly be proven in Geneva this yr, however the Spyder model, though already captured months in the past as a take a look at mule, will most likely not be launched so quickly after the Coupe model.
So regardless of the actual fact I’d like to see the Huracan EVO Spyder in March, I believe we’ll have to attend till a minimum of September for the Paris Motor Present to admire the convertible V10 mannequin from Sant’Agata at a European automotive present.
Huracan Tremendous Trofeo Omologato
There’s a rumor on some discussion board a few new Huracan within the pipeline, with the Huracan EVO road automotive and the Huracan Tremendous Trofeo EVO race automotive … we’d see a mix of this within the form and type of a road authorized model Tremendous Trofeo that might be known as the Huracan Tremendous Trofeo Omologato … just like the Gallardo Tremendous Trofeo Stradale we’ve seen earlier than, a extra aggressively styled model of a Performante maybe.
Huracan Performante EVO
Will there be a extra highly effective Lamborghini Huracan Performante EVO on the mannequin checklist quickly? Maybe, preserving in thoughts the brand new Huracan EVO has the identical energy output because the ‘old’ Huracan Performante, it could make sense for Lamborghini to create a brand new Performante model primarily based on the EVO, with much less weight and extra energy … nearer to 700 bhp might be attention-grabbing, add four-wheel steering and an extra improvement of the well-known ALA and we’d get one other Nürburgring report.
If there’s a new Huracan Performante EVO within the pipeline, chances are high we’ll even be seeing a Spyder model of this excessive energy V10 spinoff quickly after the Coupe is unveiled.
When the Lamborghini Urus Tremendous SUV was launched all of us knew a extra highly effective model was already being talked about, and most definitely the Urus would grow to be the very first manufacturing Lamborghini to supply a hybrid system … the addition weight could be extra simply offset in opposition to the already elevated general weight of an Urus anyway.
Can be get an Urus Performante, or an Urus S maybe … or it may simply be known as Urus I for Ibrido, who is aware of, however it’s going to preserve the V8 engine and add just a few electrical motors to boost energy up from the present 650 hp to create a fair faster Urus variant, variations with a V10 or perhaps a V12 engine are most unlikely to be made sooner or later I believe.
We should wait till March 5th 2019 for the official press convention on the Geneva Motor Present to admire what Lamborghini has in retailer for us subsequent …
