Reports have emerged that the successor to Lamborghini’s flagship model, the Aventador will arrive in 2020, a little under 2 years time. The reports say the new Supercar, codenamed LB48H, will get a tweaked V12 couple to a new hybrid setup, meaning a hybrid powertrain, combining a naturally aspirated V12 with a single motor…and it will glow in the dark.
Yes you read that right, sounding like something out of the movie Tron, it seem’s bosses at Lamborghini want to really embrace the whole electric hybrid system and the new hybrid hypercar is likely to use supercapacitors instead of batteries. Supercapacitors are ideal for Lamborghini over traditional batteries in other hybrid and electric vehicles because they can charge and discharge much quicker than batteries, and don’t wear out as quickly.
Currently under development , the codenamed LB48H was reportedly shown to prospective customers back in June, with a rumoured price tag of around £2 million. The raging bull is set to feature a front-mounted electric motor that will boost both power and torque, and also bring a significant reduction in fuel consumption and emissions.
The LB48H could be a preview for the Aventador’s successor, which is due in 2020. It is likely it could also be a limited run model like the Veneno and Centenario and might even get it’s premiere as early as next year.
