Lamborghini hasn’t confirmed exactly what will power its successor to the Huracan, but we can finally hear what it sounds like.
In a video posted by CarSpyMediawe can see the prototype driving at low speed.
It’s hard to hear exactly what the powertrain will be, but we do know it will feature some form of electrification.
It looks like the prototype is a plug-in hybrid based on the appearance of the fuel cap and separate charging port.
Lamborghini chief technical officer Rouven Mohr told AutoExpress The new engine will have “more than six and less than 12 cylinders”.
“It’s not a range-oriented hybrid and there will be no downsizing,” added Mr Mohr.
Car Expert suspect Lamborghini could use a naturally aspirated V10 engine paired with a hybrid system to differentiate it from Ferrari and McLaren’s V8 and V6 machines, but some reports suggest it will use a twin-turbo V8 hybrid.
Lamborghini’s Huracan successor has recently been spied for the first time on public roads.
Despite the comical attempt to hide the headlights, it looks like the model could use slim lighting and the Revuelto’s angled daytime running lights.
The prototype appears to take inspiration from the track-only Essenza SCV12 with a prominent front bumper intake and splitter.
At the rear, the bumper exposes most of the rear tire. It’s unclear whether these dramatic details will carry over to the production model.
A high-mounted central exhaust outlet sits between the slim tail lights.
Lamborghini has confirmed it will not share a platform with any other Volkswagen Group brand, unlike the outgoing Huracan which shares underpinnings with the Audi R8. Instead, the Raging Bull brand will develop its own bespoke platform and engine.
“Lamborghini has been one of the most profitable brands in the group this year, we recorded another record year in terms of operating profit…. and being the brand with the highest profits, of course, you have the power to ask certain things and also to finance the project yourself,” Lamborghini’s Asia Pacific regional director, Francesco Scardaoni, said earlier.

The Huracan successor will reportedly share the ‘monofuselage’ construction developed for the Revuelto, but will use aluminum instead of carbon fibre.
Lamborghini recently revealed the Revuelto, the V12 hybrid successor to the Aventador. The brand plans to introduce a PHEV V8 powertrain to the Urus SUV by the end of 2024.
Australia is expected to see the new Huracan and Urus by 2025, with the reveal set for late 2024.
The Italian brand’s busy two-year electrification is building to produce its first electric vehicle, a 2+2 model expected to launch in 2028.
