Despite promises to exploit synthetic fuel and keep the ICE alive, even manufacturers like Lamborghini have to deal with the reality of downsizing. Now, the probable Huracan successor has been spotted testing outside of its Italian home with a sound signifying that of a V8. Watch and listen below.
Arguably one of the most successful and best-sounding production V10s of late, the Raging Bull’s sonorous V10 appears to becoming outdated to current regulations. The naturally aspirated 5,2-liter engine is set to retire next year with the production conclusion of the Huracan and it is likely that it will ditch two cylinders in favour of a V8. Spotted several times in this lengthy video at the home of Lamborghini in Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy, several models are spotted traipsing up and down the country roads conducting testing. Included is the Huracan successor which has been sticker-bombed with camo.
Rumours suggest a twin-turbo V8 coupled with at least one electric motor has replaced the iconic V10. Whatever powerplant lurks behind those seats, it’s likely to be coupled with the Revuelto’s dual-clutch eight-speed automatic transmission. In addition to this, the Huracan successor will be capable of zero-emissions driving since a pure electric mode has been indirectly confirmed in a previous spy video.
The model is expected to arrive in 2024, where all bodywork detailing can be examined more closely as an evolution of the iconic supercar. All details and specifications should also be made available closer to the time. Watch and listen to the full video by Acriore below.
