Following a bit of a striptease, the much-anticipated new Lamborghini has been revealed at the Paris Auto Show. The Lamborghini Asterion LPI 910-4 is unmistakably a Lambo, but it joins the ranks of the hybrid supercars. That is right, the Asterion is the first-ever plug-in Lamborghini hybrid.
- The Asterion is a mid-engine 2+2 layout coupe. She measures just 4.7m in length and borrows plenty from the luscious Lamborghini Aventador.
- The changes to the body shape are just enough to lend it its own identity. It has obvious ties to both the Aventador and the Huracan, but a personality that is entirely its own.
- Power is derived from a 607 bhp 5.2-liter V10 engine paired with 3 electric motors. One electric motor is attached to the transaxle while the other two are on the front axle. The end result is 903 horses
Fun fact: The Lamborghini Asterion was named for the mythical Minotaur. Because the Raging Bull has a bit of a penchant for naming its models after bulls, the name Asterion is entirely fitting of the new beast.
Inside the cabin
While the Lamborghini Asterion’s exterior and first-ever hybrid powertrain may be the main points of intrigue, the cabin is also a focal point. The cabin of the Asterion is elegantly appointed with Ivory leather, forged carbon and titanium and all modern comforts including air conditioning. While it may not exactly be described as spacious, it is doable for an exotic sports car.
