The Chief Technical Officer of Lamborghini, Maurizio Reggiani, said that the next-generation Aventador supercar will have a hybrid component. This addition doesn't kill off the naturally aspirated V12 though, it's sticking around for the time being. "The V12 has been part of the story of Lamborghini since the very beginning," he says.

It has been hinted that the V12-retaining supercar will add the Lamborghini Sian's supercapacitor, but nothing has been confirmed. The reason for this hybrid addition? CO2 restrictions. The company has to meet certain CO2 targets, and this hybrid system should help considerably in meeting those goals.

Reggiani also mentioned the hybrid system with detail, and says "If you have the possibility to use an electric front axle with torque vectoring left and right, you can do something truly exceptional in terms of helping the driver for traction and handling...This is like a dream for engineering." In saying this, he might be hinting at the Ferrari SF90's hybrid system, where the front wheels are powered only by the electric motor.

  • Basically take an available EV Taycan J1 platform and incorporate a V12 in the back, delete the traditional AWD system and drop a dramatically styled wedge shape body onto it? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  • As long as NA engines stay, I'm good with hybrids. You still get the great throttle response with a little extra boost, and some cool whirring sounds too.
