Lamborghini Huracan Successor Coming Sooner Than We Thought

The era of the V10-powered baby Lambo, a saga that roared to life with the legendary Gallardo, is nearing its fiery conclusion as Lamborghini wraps up production of the Huracan STO this year. But hold onto your seats, because the wait for its successor is almost over. Federico Foschini, Lamborghini’s head honcho of sales and marketing, spilled the beans to HotCars: the new beast, likely named Temerario, is dropping this August.

Now, let's get real. August is just the reveal date. Production and deliveries will follow several months later, as usual. When this new supercar hits the streets, every model in Lamborghini's lineup — Urus, Huracán replacement, Revuelto—will be packing hybrid power. Foschini, in a chat with Autocar, hinted at some juicy details about the hybrid powertrain.

Torque Vectoring

Foschini’s cryptic clues point to a new all-wheel-drive setup, possibly featuring at least one electric motor on the front axle. This aligns with the all-new eight-speed transmission, which notably lacks a reverse gear, crafted specifically for the Revuelto.

Lamborghini is undoubtedly looking to cash in on its hefty investment in this electrification tech. Expect the Temerario to sport a hybrid setup similar to the Revuelto, with a slightly more cost-effective version of its cutting-edge monofuselage chassis. The Revuelto's rear subframe is aluminum, with the rest of the monocoque in carbon fiber. For the Temerario, the front subframe could also be aluminum, maintaining strength without breaking the bank.

Other Exciting Technology

Beyond torque vectoring, Lamborghini's engineers in Sant'Agata are cooking up another breakthrough: active camber and toe control, adjustable on the fly. Early tests suggest this tech can shave about five seconds off a novice driver’s lap time. While currently in prototype form with a 48-volt system, it’s expected to connect to a hybrid or electric vehicle's higher voltage system.

But let's not kid ourselves. This pricey tech will likely be reserved for the more lavish models, like the production version of the Lanzador concept, or one of the inevitable special editions of the new Lambo. Regardless, we’ll know all the details in just a couple of months.

Key Takeaways

  • Lamborghini will reveal the new supercar, likely named Temerario, in August 2024.

  • With this, every model in the range, including the Huracan replacement, will be hybridized.

  • Exciting tech like active camber control may feature in the new Lambo, but torque vectoring is more likely.

At Freedom Supercars, we've had over ten Huracans in our collection over the years, each one a testament to Lamborghini's relentless pursuit of excellence. We can't wait to see what the new Temerario brings to the table. One thing's for sure—we're excited to welcome it into our collection one day soon.
