Code named the LB48H and reportedly based on the Terzo Millenio concept Lamborghini developed in collaboration with M.I.T., the Italian Supercar maker is set to unveil its latest Hypercar in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show however despite costing around £2M Lamborghini has already sold every single one.
Lamborghini Chief Commercial Officer, Federico Foschini has said that despite not making more than 63 units -a nod to 1963, the year Lamborghini was founded – the LB48H (expected to have a more significant name come launch day) “is really a huge product for Lamborghini.”
The new Hypercar – LB48H – will be equipped with an electric motor powering the front wheels while the rear axle will run on a 6.5-litre V12 expected to produce around 838 hp.
As carmakers follow new rules to cut emissions accelerating hybrid and electric technology in cars, Lamborghini will also be doing the same with the next Aventador set to follow the LB4BH’s example going hybrid according to Foschini.
“We know that the electrification trend is coming,” Federico said, “So the idea is that we combine the V12 with a hybrid. Hybridization will be tuned for performance, not merely for range. It is not a car that will run for 70 or 100km full electric. At the end of the day, what we want is power and we want to have performance out of the hybridization.”
