Lamborghini huracan successor

Lamborghini Huracan Successor to Get 10,000rpm Capable Twin-Turbo V8

While Lamborghini is embracing hybrid technology for its next generation of supercars, those mourning the demise of the V10 in the Huracan would be pleasantly surprised to hear that the new twin-turbo V8 powertrain will rev to a stratospheric 10,000 rpm. Yep, this isn’t a typo and the Huracan successor, codenamed Lamborghini 634, this engine will out-rev a superbike and behave like a true race engine.

It also seems the brand will preserve the high-pitch scream of the naturally aspirated V10 but in a more extreme avatar. The 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 for the next-gen Huracan successor delivers 730 Nm of maximum torque between 4,000 and 7,000 rpm and the same hybrid technology as seen in the flagship Revuelto, which has three electric motors in tow. Combined horsepower output is an eye-brow raising 800BHP as the baby Lamborghini supercar has clearly grown up.

This complex electrical system has been designed and developed for the new V8 while being positioned between the combustion engine and the dual-clutch gearbox. Despite its insatiable appetite for high revs, it still gets optimum torque levels at the lower end with a maximum of 300 Nm and 110 kW at 3,500 rpm. Crucially, Lamborghini says that they have kept this hybrid system as compact as possible and the weight in check.

Far from a parts bin special, the engine was developed from scratch and is a huge leap forward for Lamborghini as it transitions into a hybrid future just like Ferrari and McLaren. The 634 is scheduled to be unveiled by the end of this year, with spy shots confirming a typical Lamborghini stance with a healthy dose of aggression with Revuetlo-inspired headlamps for its successor. We expect the new baby Lamborghini supercar to be named after a fighting bull, as per tradition. This one will set off a power war with the likes of the Ferrari 296 GTB and the McLaren Arura.

Interiors will be dowsed in technology with numerous screens, just like the Revuelto, and we wouldn’t be shocked to find more head and knee room for passengers as well.

The first-generation Gallardo was the first Lamborghini to come with conventional doors and expand the brand’s buyer audience, while the Huracan and its numerous iterations later became one of its best-selling models ever. With the 634, Lamborghini is aiming for an even larger share of the growing supercar segment.
