Hints of a Hypercar: What We Know of Lamborghini's Rumored "LB48H" Hybrid


A post shared by Lamborghini (@lamborghini) on

Across the automotive industry, a movement toward the incorporation of hybrid technology has not only dramatically improved efficiency and emissions for trucks and sportscars alike, but enhanced performance capabilities to unprecedented levels. With electric-only models outrunning heavily modified street cars, pickup trucks using mild hybrid systems to provide additional boost as necessary, and advanced supercars utilizing a combination of gas and electric engines to deliver maximal acceleration from standstill to top speed, the incorporation of hybrid technology no longer holds the stigma of being inherently underpowered and overpriced, but rather indicates an advanced leap forward in automotive engineering for manufacturers competent enough to execute this arduous task.

Unconfirmed, Yet Anxiously Awaited: The "LB48H"

Recently, a website known as The Supercar Blog reported the unveiling of Lamborghini's newest vehicle at a secretive event in Italy for a select few hundred individuals. Unnamed sources report styling heavily resembling the Terzo Millennio concept that stunned the automotive world with its unprecedented design and futuristic properties designed in conjunction with MIT engineers. The powertrain design likely bears resemblance to systems employed in the likes of competing models, which utilize electric motors at lower speeds to "boost" the vehicle to a point where the combustion engine takes over to deliver optimal torque and horsepower throughout the entire acceleration process - enhancing both performance, and efficiency. Most likely a one-off model, the rumored "LB48H" has sparked the interest of Lamborghini enthusiasts worldwide, as the iconic manufacturer potentially makes its first strides into "hypercar" territory with advanced technologies slated to redefine the automotive industry.
