Lamborghini will not give up its atmospheric aggregates, and they will also be found in the next generation of super cars labeled as “bullfighted”, despite the fact that a large part of the competition has decided to switch to aggregates with turbochargers.
In this way, other manufacturers want to reduce the emissions of harmful gases while at the same time improving performance.
Lamborghini‘s technical director, Maurizio Reggiani, said in an interview he was determined to resist pressure to reduce the number of cylinders in future Lambroghini cars.
“Each car has a mission, and on the basis of that mission, it must be selected for the appropriate drive unit,” Regiani said. “We made a decision to give the Urus model a turbocharger, but all of our other super cars will still have an atmospheric aggregate.
Namely, in the future, we will have to pay attention to fuel consumption and to the emissions of harmful gases. I am convinced that the answer is the best response to this atmospheric aggregate in combination with a hybrid system. ”
Accordingly, the successor to the Huracan model, which will appear in 2022, will be the most likely plug-in hybrid drive, and similarly will be with the successor of the Aventador model.
“We need to rebuild the car again, but without changing its current characteristics, that is, without having to extract the carbon fiber, the atmospheric V12 aggregate and other components. On the other hand, if it’s a hybrid car, we need to find other ways to reduce its weight.
The biggest problem with which Lamborghini faces is the density of batteries, that is, the number of their cells. For this reason, the Italian carmaker cooperates with MIT (University), on the development of a carbon fiber body that can be used as a super conductor.
As the first result of this collaboration, Lamborghini introduced the concept of the car Terzo Millennio.
