Earlier in March 2023, Lamborghini thorough the gasoline-electric hybrid drivetrain that will energy the Aventador’s successor. We nevertheless never know what the product (which is termed LB744 internally) appears like, but the agency exposed one way it saved the hybrid system’s bodyweight in look at.
Lamborghini built the LB744 about a new chassis called a “monofuselage” that consists of a carbon-fiber monocoque and a entrance framework designed with Forged Composites, an innovative content the enterprise has applied considering that 2008. Although the now-retired Aventador showcased a carbon-fiber monocoque as effectively, its front framework was created with aluminum. Switching to a composite framework unlocks many benefits: It is 20% lighter than the Aventador’s entrance structure, and it aids make the all round monofuselage 10% lighter than the Aventador’s chassis.
Out back again, the structure that the engine, the transmission, and sections of the hybrid process are mounted on is created with higher-energy aluminum alloys. It incorporates a pair of hollow castings that the rear suspension system’s shock towers and the powertrain’s suspension process are integrated into. Here yet again, this format will save body weight by lessening the number of areas that need to have to arrive jointly to assemble the vehicle.
Electricity for the LB744 arrives from a gasoline-electrical plug-in hybrid drivetrain that is made up of a new, 6.5-liter V12 motor located immediately powering the passenger compartment, an 8-speed twin-clutch automatic transmission mounted transversally at the rear of the motor, a modest electrical motor integrated into the transmission, two electrical motors on the front axle (a person per wheel), and a 3.8-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack housed in what was previously the transmission tunnel. The system’s whole output checks in at 1,001 horsepower. This format delivers via-the-road all-wheel-drive, which means that there is no mechanical relationship between the front and rear axles.
Lamborghini will unveil the LB744 in “a couple of weeks.”
