Fans of Lamborghini, who had hoped to see a lightweight version of the Huracan Superleggera, one should not hope in vain. According to technical Director Maurizio Reggiani, Lamborghini is not going to implement this idea.
It is noted that a 5.2-liter naturally aspirated V10 engine peaked at versions Performante and developing 631 HP and 600 Nm of torque. But the problem is not how to increase the power, and how to keep it at the current level given the new environmental regulations.
Now in Europe there are CO2 emission standards Euro 6d-Temp, but not far off the introduction of Euro 7, and they will probably make Lamborghini to put a special system to reduce emissions that can lead to reduced power.
A possible solution would be electrification of the motor V10 and V12. This solution will be used for successors of the current models of Lamborghini, but the electrification means more weight due to batteries and electric motors.
In the end, the name of the Superleggera, which is Italian for “extra light”, simply wouldn’t be fair to electric cars the next generation that will be much heavier than current versions due to the extra components needed for electrification.
