2024 Lamborghini Aventador hybrid V12 successor spied tested

Lamborghini’s new hybrid supercar will be able to rev in excess of 8500rpm, with its V12 engine sound roaring out of twin tailpipes.

The hybrid successor to the Lamborghini Aventador was again spied while undergoing testing in Europe and previewing what we can expect from the Italian marque’s new flagship supercar.

Lamborghini’s hybrid supercar is slated for launch in 2024 – about two years after the end of the Aventador’s 11-year production run – with a V12 engine with plug-in electric assist.

Compared to previous spy images, the Lamborghini Aventador successor appears to come with headlights more akin to a production car, incorporating LED daytime running lights under the main unit.

Lamborghini’s camouflage restricts the hybrid supercar’s key design features, although a pair of small fins positioned at the top of the radiator intakes appear to channel air to the supercar’s cooling system.

The car’s rear styling has been slightly revised since its last sighting in September, with a pair of hexagonal exhaust tips replacing the four quad exits.

Several electrical warning decals were affixed to the test vehicle, confirming that it is equipped with a 48-volt battery and hybrid system.

Inside, the digital dashboard displays the message “Rear Aerosystem Error,” suggesting that the production car will be fitted with an active rear spoiler.

The screen also includes a “V12” logo, as well as a “Hybrid” driving mode that allows the Lamborghini to drive with a combination of petrol and electric engines.

When driving in city mode, the hybrid V12 engine revs at 8500 rpm – coincidentally the same point at which its Aventador predecessor delivered its peak power of 574 kW.

Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann previously said the hybrid supercar’s V12 engine is all-new and not a holdover from the Aventador or its Murcielago predecessor.

In September, Mr. Winkelmann predicted that the hybrid supercar is likely to surpass the 350 km/h top speed and 2.9-second 0 to 100 km/h time of the outgoing Aventador Ultimae – the last all-petrol V12 car of the year company.

Previous reports have suggested the supercar could be called the Revuelto – a continuation of the company’s history of taking names from Spanish fighting bulls – as Lamborghini filed a trademark for the name in Europe earlier this year.

Lamborghini is set to launch its first electric car in 2025 – 11 years before the company must comply with the European Union’s ban on petrol and diesel engines.

While larger automakers must phase out their fossil-fueled cars by 2035, Lamborghini and other companies that make fewer than 10,000 vehicles annually have until 2036 to make the necessary changes.
