What could it be? We'll find out soon.
After revealing the limited-edition Aventador SVJ 63 And Huracan Evo GT Celebration at Pebble Beach, Lamborghini is already turning its attention to next month's Frankfurt Motor Show. On its Instagram page, the Italian automaker has posted a mysterious teaser showing the front of a new model with the caption: "Something new is on the way. Can't wait to see it? Just open your eyes to the future."
That doesn't give us much to go on, and we only get to see the front silhouette illuminated by the front lights. Intriguingly, the design of the slim LEDs looks strikingly similar to the lights found on the electric Terzo Millennio concept that debuted in 2017 and the model also has a similar roof design. Potentially, we could be looking at a new limited-edition Lamborghini hybrid hypercar.
Last year, Lamborghini allegedly showed a new hybrid hypercar prototype called the LB48H to customers at a private event in Italy with styling inspired by the striking Terzo Millennio concept. While the next-generation Aventador is also expected to adopt a hybrid powertrain, this will be a separate limited-edition model. Originally, the LB48H was expected to arrive earlier this year, but it looks like Lamborghini is saving the debut for Frankfurt.
Reports claim Lamborghini's first hybrid supercar will be limited to just 63 units and cost $2.5 million before taxes. Alternatively, Lamborghini could debut a new concept at Frankfurt previewing the future hybrid supercar. We'll find out soon.
As for the next-generation Aventador, Lamborghini's flagship supercar replacement is also expected to share styling cues from the Terzo Millennio concept but it may not arrive until 2024. Worryingly, the next Avendator may lose its signature V12 due to the astronomical costs required to meet the upcoming EU7 emissions standards. Audi is struggling to justify these costs and wants to install a hybrid V8 powertrain being developed by Porsche, but Lamborghini is fighting to keep the V12 alive.
