Everyone has been waiting with bated breaths for any news on the Lamborghini Huracan’s replacement. Now, it has been understood that the car will arrive towards the end of 2024. This was confirmed by none other than Lamborghini CEO Stefan Winkelmann.
Lamborghini Huracan’s replacement : More Details
An all-new car will be replacing the current Huracan. Winkelmann also told the media that this car will use a plug-in hybrid powertrain. Back in 2022, CTO Rouven Mohr told that the car would come with a plug-in hybrid.
That said, the CEO did not reveal further details. Earlier reports had indicated that the Huracan successor would sport a twin-turbo V8 engine. It is said this engine would rev upto 7,000 rpm before the turbos would kick in. The turbos would be active all the way upto the 10,000 rpm redline. It is assumed that the engine will act as a naturally aspirated unit until the 7,000 rpm mark. However the engine will get hybrid assistance as well.

This engine will send power only to the rear wheels via an 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Individual electric motors will power the front wheels. All in all, the engine along with the electric motors will generate around 1,000 HP.
