Recently, media have captured spy shots of the all-new successor to the Huracan, showcasing Lamborghini’s timeless wedge-shaped body design. The spy photos reveal that this successor, slated for a 2024 release, still adopts the classic silhouette of Lamborghini supercars. This design first appeared in the 1971 Countach LP500 concept car, with elements already manifested in the 1968 Espada and Marzal concept cars. Essentially, the design of the car has been evolving within the same framework for 50 years.
This yet-to-be-named Lamborghini supercar borrows design elements from the Revuelto, including a single version of the dual exhaust pipes suspended high between the taillights. It also retains the vertical rear window and a flat engine hood at the back, mirroring the aesthetics of the Revuelto.
Regrettably, this model will not feature a V12 engine and will abandon the V10 engine characteristic of Lamborghini’s entry-level supercars since the Gallardo debuted in 2003. While the Ferrari 296 and McLaren Artura are both equipped with hybrid V6s, this car is likely to lean towards a hybrid V8, providing it with significant advantages over its competitors.
This successor to the Huracan will be a PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle), evident from the charging port visible at the back. It’s anticipated that the total power output of this vehicle will be within 850 horsepower. Although it’s much less than the 1001 horsepower of the V12, it can surpass the 830 horsepower Ferrari 296, significantly exceeding the 680 horsepower McLaren Artura and the 640 horsepower of the older flagship Huracan.
