Scheduled for release in late 2024, the new Huracán will feature a plug-in hybrid powertrain, distinguishing itself with a unique design separate from its larger counterpart, the Revuelto.
Distinctive changes can be seen in the car’s front, characterized by sleek slit-like headlights and bold daytime running lights sporting a hexagonal shape. Additionally, the Huracán successor showcases sizable intakes located at the top of its rear fenders, and its overall dimensions are noticeably shorter than those of the Revuelto.
While the Huracán and its predecessor, the Gallardo, have traditionally shared close ties with Audi’s R8 supercar, the upcoming Huracán successor is expected to draw inspiration from the Revuelto. This includes the adoption of the V-12 supercar’s carbon-fiber tub, a logical move considering Audi’s future supercar, and potentially the next R8, is rumored to be electric.
Lamborghini has officially confirmed that the Huracán successor will feature the Revuelto’s 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. This transmission, developed by Lamborghini, incorporates an electric motor in the Revuelto, and it’s likely that the Huracán successor will follow suit. The possibility of additional electric motors on the front axle, as seen in the Revuelto, remains uncertain at this point.
There have been reports suggesting that the Huracán successor might forego the current V-10 engine in favor of a V-8 for its internal combustion component in the plug-in hybrid powertrain. Specifically, Lamborghini could opt for the twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 engine found in the Urus. This V-8 engine is slated for use in Lamborghini’s plug-in hybrid Urus, scheduled to hit the market in the first half of 2024. The engine sound captured in the prototype’s video closely resembles that of the Urus V-8.
Last December, Lamborghini introduced the Huracán Sterrato, marking the final edition of the Huracán series and the last regular production Lamborghini model solely powered by a combustion engine. By the end of 2024, all regular production Lamborghinis will feature electrified powertrains. However, it remains possible that the automaker may continue offering limited-volume models powered solely by combustion engines, potentially even extending beyond the 2024 deadline. Such models, though, may be restricted for track use, akin to the 2020 Essenza SCV12.
