Powerful and light. Are you the replacement for the Aventador?

Supercars want to be very powerful and the lighter the better. Lamborghini takes the recipe to the letter, as it announced that the successor to the Aventador, in addition to 1015 hp, will be incredibly light, courtesy of the adoption of a new monocoque concept inspired by the aeronautical industry, or was. It was not the objective of the Italian brand to make the hitherto called LB744 (internal designation of the project) a “plane” to fly on asphalt. Aesthetics are still officially an open question, but one Instagram post leaves little to the imagination…

While the veil covering Lamborghini’s future plug-in hybrid coupe isn’t finally falling, what is known for sure is what the Italian automaker is keen to divulge dropper. After unraveling the secrets of the mechanics, in which the emblematic 6.5 V12 is maintained, but with the reinforcement of three electric motors and a new transmission, Ferrari’s eternal rival highlights that its future top of the range will not only surprise by the increase in power, which rises to 1015 hp, while emissions and consumption are reduced by 30%. According to the brand, what also drops and in a “substantial” way is the weight of the new supercar.

This is going to be the new Lamborghini Aventador plug-in hybrid with more than 1015 CV

The diet is based on a “unique airframe” that is 10% lighter than the Aventador chassis, while torsional rigidity is increased by 25%, immediately suggesting new levels in terms of efficiency on tarmac. The trick to lightening the weight of the coupe lies essentially in the front structure of the monohullwhich replaces its aluminum predecessor with forged composites. Basically it is shorter carbon fibers soaked in resin, a technology that the brand already patented in 2008 and that now allows it to gain 20% in the weight of the front structure compared to the current Aventador.

If he monohull It is entirely made of carbon fiber, combining different technologies. For the roof, the brand’s decision was to maintain the traditional autoclave construction, to maximize customer customization options. At the rear, the chassis is made of high-strength aluminum alloys with two hollow parts that integrate the suspension and the renewed 6.5 V12. According to the brand, this solution translates into a “significant reduction in weight, increased rigidity and a substantial reduction in welding lines”. Soon more details or, ideally, the complete presentation of the new “bull”.
