Lamborghini Will NOT Build the Asterion

This electric bull is just a concept - for now.

There’s been quite a bit of talk regarding the future of the Lamborghini Asterion. Will it remain a concept? Could there be a production version in the works? Or will only its hybrid technology find its way to another production model (possibly an SUV)? These are just a few of the questions floating around and Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann wants to set the record straight. In a recent interview with Maxim, Winkelmann stated that the only way the Asterion would make production is without the hybrid powertrain.

I strongly believe that this is not a car that will be in production and we will not do it," Winkelmann stated. He described the concept as more of a "hyper cruiser." And one of those aforementioned questions has an answer: the Asterion’s hybrid technology will more than likely find its way to the upcoming Lamborghini SUV. Winkelmann maintained that the extra weight of the battery, in terms of overall packaging, is not a good fit for a hypercar. However, he won’t rule out the possibility of a wealthy client commissioning a one-off Asterion – only without the hybrid system. Only the Aventador’s V12 would be offered.
