Lamborghini is currently working on a successor to its flagship Aventador, with its next V12 powered supercar set to arrive in 2020.
According to Automobile Magazine, the Aventador's replacement is set to retain the naturally aspirated Lamborghini which has defined its supercars since the raging bull came into existence in 1964.
However, the new Lamborghini flagship will feature a larger engine compared to the Aventador, which bucks the trend of downsizing that is currently being seen in the car world today. The 7.0-litre V12 will kick out around 800hp and will be helped along by electric motors on each of the front wheels which will each put out 160hp for a combined output of around 1120hp along with a tire-shredding 1200Nm of torque.
The Aventador's replacement will feature a lighter version of the current supercar's extremely stiffcarbon-fiber tub with the battery pack stuffed into the transmission tunnel and will also sport active aero like the track focused Huracan performante. A smaller turbocharged V8 with electric assistance could also arrive as the entry level version of the Aventador replacement.
While the next Lamborghini flagship is getting electrified, petrolheads around the world will rejoice because of the fact that the signature Lamborghini V12 soundtrack will not be going away as many feared if Lamborghini sticks to this plan.
