Lamborghini’s new hybrid V12 hero is coming ‘in a few days’
lamborghini confirmed its hybrid V12 successor for Aventador will be revealed in “just a few days”.
codenamed LB744, the Italian automaker has revealed more details about the car’s dynamic steering system. This follows on from the previous two teasers its powertrain details And chassis.
The upcoming plug-in hybrid (PHEV) version will have a total of 13 different driving modes, including an all-electric mode called Città and a recharge mode.
Some of these driving modes can be selected using the two propellers on the redesigned steering wheel.
In addition to the driving modes, there is electric torque vectoring thanks to the hybrid system’s electronic motor and four-wheel steering.
Thanks in part to the new architecture, the LB744 has an “optimal” weight distribution, with 44% at the front and 56% at the rear. This is said to lead to better agility.
In addition, the LB744 has 11% stiffer anti-roll bars at the front and 50% stiffer anti-roll bars at the rear, as well as a 10% faster steering ratio than the Aventador Ultimae.
The LB744 comes with a host of active features designed to improve aerodynamics, including a semi-active suspension. There are also two NACA ducts in front of the front wheels.
In high-load situations, the LB744 is 61% more aerodynamically efficient than the Aventador Ultimae. It also has 66% more downward force.
The LB744 comes with “specially developed” Bridgestone Potenza Sport tires with 4% more front legroom than the Aventador Ultimae.
Providing stopping power is a set of latest-generation carbon-ceramic brakes, with 10-piston front calipers with 410x38mm discs and four-piston rear calipers with 390x32mm discs.
EQUAL details beforeThe LB744 will be the brand’s first mass-produced high-performance electrified vehicle (HPEV), with a new engine 6.5 liter V12 engine At its heart.
manufacture 607kW power and 725Nm of torque, it is connected only to the rear axle. The Redline is 9500rpm, or 500rpm beyond what the 4.0-liter six-in-one Porsche 911 GT3GT3 RS and 718 Cayman GT4 RS can manage.
It won’t be boosted by turbochargers, superchargers or even 48V mild hybrid technology. But it will be powered by three electric motors.
One (with 110kW And 150Nm) is attached to a horizontally mounted eight-speed dual-clutch transmission; the other two are attached to the front wheel.
This is only Lamborghini’s third V12 model with a horizontal-mounted transmission. The first is a Muira, the second is a race-only Essenza SCV12.
Lamborghini says the transmission can decouple the engine in a way that allows its new V12 supercar to drive four-wheel drive even in EV mode.
Each front-mounted motor generates 110kW power and 350Nm of torque and opens the door to all sorts of torque vectoring tricks not possible with the conventional all-wheel drive system on the now-defunct Aventador.
Combined, the PHEV powertrain will produce 745kW (1000 horsepower) power.
Powering the electric motor is a 3.8kWh The lithium-ion battery pack is mounted in what used to be a transmission tunnel.
It can be charged in 30 minutes using a 7kW wall box or with regenerative braking from the front wheels or using the V12 in six minutes.
Reverse gear is handled by the electric motors, instead of the petrol engine and transmission.
