Lamborghini Aventador successor has 13 driving modes

Lamborghini is simply days away from revealing its successor to the Aventador, a brand new V-12 supercar outfitted with a plug-in hybrid system boasting a trio of electrical motors.

The plug-in hybrid powertrain has supplied Lamborghini with new alternatives for tips on how to direct energy to and from the wheels, and has enabled engineers to prepare dinner up 13 totally different driving modes.

The pliability, Lamborghini says, means the automotive, which carries the codename LB744, will ship sturdy efficiency and confidence-inspiring dealing with throughout varied driving conditions and grip situations.

The LB744 contains a newly developed 6.5-liter V-12 mounted in the course of the chassis. It is paired to a brand new 8-speed dual-clutch automated transmission mounted behind the engine in a transverse place, as a substitute of longitudinally and in entrance of the engine as within the Aventador. One electrical motor is built-in with the transmission and drives the rear wheels along with the engine, and two extra are positioned up entrance to energy the entrance wheels in unbiased style and add all-wheel-drive functionality. As a substitute of a driveshaft operating down the center of the automotive for the all-wheel-drive system, a 3.8-kwh lithium-ion battery sits there.

The configuration delivers a peak 1,000 hp and means the LB744 can function with electrical all-wheel drive for brief distances. Reverse can also be electrical, although it is dealt with by the entrance motors solely. The electrical motors additionally allow electrical torque vectoring, a primary for a Lamborghini.

Lamborghini has taken benefit of the configuration to supply the motive force with entry to a few powertrain modes—Recharge, Hybrid, and Efficiency—and 4 drive modes—Città (Metropolis), Strada (Road), Sport, and Corsa (Race)—through controls on the steering wheel. These seven modes mix to ship a complete 13 attainable configurations for automobile setup.

Recharge mode makes most use of the automotive’s vitality restoration capacity; Hybrid optimizes using the engine and electrical motors to spice up effectivity; and Efficiency makes use of all energy sources to ship most efficiency. The extra drive modes management quite a lot of automobile techniques together with the suspension, steering, and aerodynamics.

Probably the most potent setup is the mix of Efficiency and Corsa modes. Right here, the powertrain delivers its full 1,000 hp, with the V-12 engine all the time lively to make sure the battery has a cost. The chassis techniques are additionally set as much as ship their sharpest responses. For final efficiency, the motive force can even disable the digital stability management on this mode so no energy is minimize to the wheels whereas driving on the restrict.

Spy photographs of prototypes present a automotive with an analogous form to the Aventador, and sporting Y-shaped taillights and high-mounted quad-exhaust ideas. The facet intakes are additionally a lot bigger than on the Aventador.

A newly developed carbon-fiber tub sits below the physique, and mounted to the entrance is a carbon-fiber body that is lighter than the Aventador’s aluminum entrance body but in addition stiffer. The entrance body additionally incorporates new carbon-fiber crash constructions. The rear body is comprised of aluminum, like on the Aventador.
