2022 marked the end of production of the Lamborghini Aventador. The void left will soon be filled by a next-gen supercar, known internally as the ‘Lamborghini LB744’. Today, we can share more information about this car, including its rumoured “official name”.
If you’ve been keeping tabs on the latest developments in the world of supercars, you may have seen spy images of LB744. It’s clear that the exterior design is an evolution of the Aventador’s classic wedge shape. It is said that the front fascia is inspired by Sian, while the rear borrows design cues from the Centenario. We’ve been told that it won’t have a glass engine cover this time around, but there will be a separate screen on the passenger side, a’ la Ferrari.
Now, let’s talk about the engine. We already know that the Aventador successor will be powered by a naturally aspirated V12 engine, albeit supported by a hybrid system. Sources tell us that the ICE alone could develop around 850 hp, while the combined output is expected to be about 1050 hp. In a car that’s said to weigh 1650 kg, it would be more than sufficient. The hybrid powertrain will be paired with a dual-clutch transmission.
The Lamborghini LB744 is expected to make its public debut in March this year. Rumor suggest that the Aventador successor could be called ‘Tormenta’, although we aren’t too sure about that.
