It has been a while since we’ve noticed the first spy shots of the next-generation Lamborghini V12 flagship, but after that, it seems Automobili Lamborghini SpA managed to keep their test mule hidden a bit better, no new photos have been seen to date, but that doesn’t mean we can’t do some virtual renders to get an impression on how the first Lamborghini production hybrid will look, and that’s exactly what we’ve found today on an FB page from Uness Design, and while their design still looks a lot like the Lamborghini Sián FKP37, it does seem to look a lot like what’s hiding underneath the camouflage wrap seen on the spy shots.
I was present in Frankfurt back in 2019 when the limited edition Lamborghini Sián was revealed to the public, and I remember Lamborghini’s Chief designer, Mitja Borkert was asked if this was a preview of the future for the next-generation Lamborghini flagship, and he categorically denied that was the fact, remember back in 2007 when the Lamborghini Reventón was shown, we might not have known it back then, but it turned out a lot of the design queues on that very limited, million-dollar Raging Bull would be found on the Murciélago successor a few years later.
And then we see the test mule for the Aventador successor and can’t help but wonder if we will be seeing more or less a further development of the Sián styling to be used on the first V12 hybrid production model in the history of Automobili Lamborghini SpA, and to make things even worse, the brand new Lamborghini Huracán Tecnica boasts some serious Sian influence on the front, next to the headlights … so will that be a ‘house-style’ for the upcoming Lamborghini models? Remember the spy shots of the Lamborghini Urus a while ago, the one with the black wrap, it also shows this styling next to the headlights as you can clearly see below.
I do admit I rather like the renders on the Lamborghini V12 hybrid, the styling is aggressively Lamborghini, I just feel the rear sits too high, but that could be the angle of these renders, or just the first impressions, on the other hand, I love the placement of the exhaust pipes, and while some sources mentioned these could be ‘duds’, not the actual exhausts but just there to distract, I truly hope these are genuine and will be present on the new flagship from Sant’Agata. This brings us to the next topic, the Huracán Tecnica was just unveiled, but word is there is another V10 model to be unveiled later this year, and chances are that will be the raised suspension version, also known as the Sterrato.
And that rumor is emphasized by a photo posted by CocheSpias on Instagram showing a satin army green Lamborghini Huracán that looks a lot like the orange concept we’ve seen several years ago, so chances are that is a further development of the original concept car, personally, I don’t really see the appeal of a raised sportscar, but that’s just me I guess, something that would really interest me with a V10 would be a Spyder version of the brand new Tecnica, just like the Huracán Performante was available as a Spyder and the ancestor that used the Tecnica name, the Lamborghini Gallardo Performante Edizione Tecnica.
We’ll have to be patient and wait to see what Lamborghini still has in store for us before the year ends, we should be seeing something new in August at Monterey Car Week, a tradition for Automobili Lamborghini SpA to unveil something new and different … let’s hope it’s a new and impressive Raging Bull.
