The V12 supercar is expected to be revealed next month.
The successor to the Lamborghini Aventador will launch imminently with electrified V12 power, and Sant'Agata's engineers are hard at work in the Arctic Circle evaluating how the hybrid supercar performs in cold weather. The new V12 is already a sales success long before it's been seen by the public, and after it is revealed, interest in the car will only swell. Lamborghini has not given a specific reveal date but has said that the new car will be "rolled out in the first quarter of 2023," with various sources claiming the launch will take place towards the end of March.
Once again, the test vehicle is well camouflaged, but we do get another sneak peek at the new digital driver cluster following our first look at it three months ago. A leaked teaser from earlier this month has also given us some idea of what to expect, confirming that Lamborghini design will continue to be attention-grabbing in all the right ways. This car appears to be wearing its full production bodywork with all lighting elements, exhaust tips, and engine covers camouflaged rather than wearing bulky cladding. Not that the design is very secret anymore after several recent leaks.
As for performance, some rumors have suggested that the all-new hybrid V12 power plant will exceed 1,000 horsepower. There has been no official confirmation of this, but in a world where cars like the 986-hp Ferrari SF90 Stradale are no longer considered scary, a four-figure horsepower rating seems par for the course.
Other developments that will be confirmed soon include that the electrified supercar will have an all-electric mode. CarBuzz discovered the sound file for the supercar's pedestrian warning system not too long ago, which means that the V12 beast will be able to skirt congestion laws in Europe's major cities. The fact that one can sneak into their palatial garage late at night without waking the neighbors is another bonus of the feature.
With the reveal only a few weeks away, a new era of electrified performance is about to begin. Without turbocharging, the sound of the future will be glorious.
