Since 1963, Lamborghini has been producing high-end cars, making it one of the most rumored sports car manufacturers. Italian-based Lamborghini is well renowned for its outstanding V12 engines. One such vehicle is the Aventador, whose stunning design and mind-blowing performance have captivated audiences all over the world. One of the greatest sports vehicles ever made, this vehicle is unique in its sort.
Its extremely fashionable design contributes to its aerodynamic stability. Aventador has also been introduced in a variety of models and specifications, along with a few special editions, to satisfy the needs of all different sorts of buyers. The powerhouse offered by this sturdy and high-performance example adds to the enjoyment of owning a Lamborghini Aventador.
On March 29, Lamborghini will unveil its first plug-in hybrid supercar, which will take the place of the Aventador. It will include a new V12 engine alongside three electric motors to produce a total of 1,015 horsepower. It is now the most potent Lamborghini in the history of the company.
- Lambo LB744 PHEV will produce 1,015 horsepower
- The mono fuselage chassis of the LB744 is 10% lighter than the chassis of the Aventador.
It marks the beginning of a new era for the Italian brand’s electrification while also letting its iconic V12 engine “live on” rather than being eliminated by more stringent pollution standards.

Details of the Lamborghini LB744 chassis
A brand-new “mono fuselage” chassis idea will also be shown off on the LB744, which the manufacturer claims will be “a significant” improvement in the torsional rigidity and driving dynamics of the model. The supercar, code-named LB744, will be the first to have a full carbon fiber front end and have energy absorption levels that are twice as high as those of the Aventador.
The mono fuselage, which weighs 20% less at the front, is 10% lighter, according to the Italian automaker, than the Aventador’s supporting chassis. There has also been a 25% increase in torsional rigidity.
High-strength aluminum makes up the rear chassis, which Lamborghini claims further saves weight, reduces the number of welding lines, and increases rigidity. The rear domes are hollow.
Lamborghini’s updated approach to carbon fiber engineering is shown in the new “forged composites” chassis technology. The company continues by saying that it will boost manufacturing sustainability while lowering energy use and waste production.
LB744 powertrain by Lamborghini
But according to Lamborghini, who has also given careful consideration to how it sounds, the new, lighter 6.5-litre V12 is essential to the PHEV’s performance. It is 17 kg less than the V12 in the Aventador and weighs 218 kg, however, it still has an output of 825 horsepower at 9,250 rpm and 725 Nm at 6,750 rpm.
This enables the three 18.5kg motors—two driving the front axle and one mounted on the gearbox—to be installed with the little negative effect on weight (the total amount has not yet been disclosed) and, consequently, performance. Moreover, the engine produces 30 percent fewer CO2 emissions than the 780 horsepower engine in the Aventador Ultimate.
These motors also enhance low-end torque, delivering 350Nm immediately. This will offer the LB744 blazing off-line speed, perhaps with numbers close to the special edition Lamborghini Veneno, which can touch 100kph from rest in just 2.9 seconds, though acceleration stats have not yet been confirmed.
Hybrid system for the Lamborghini LB744
To maintain the car’s center of gravity as low as possible, a 3.8kWh lithium-ion battery is installed inside the transmission tunnel. According to Lamborghini, it can be charged in either 30 minutes using an external 7kW current or in as little as six minutes using a combination of regenerative braking and the gasoline engine.
The LB744’s 44:56 weight distribution enables it to be “extremely agile” on both roads and circuits, according to the manufacturer.
Even with just the front wheels engaged or all four, the LB744 can run entirely on electricity. The estimated electric-only range, however, is only 8 km due to the modest size of the battery. The super-hybrid now offers 13 various drive modes with the addition of the battery, including full ICE driving, hybrid support, pure-electric driving, recharging mode, and, of course, track-specific setups.
A new, smaller battery was created because the current one occupies the gearbox’s usual space. The LB744’s tiny eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, which is placed behind the V12 to help with weight distribution, is only 56 cm long, 75 cm broad, and weighs 193 kg.
After the legendary Miura of 1966, the LB744 will be only the second road-going Lamborghini to be equipped with a transversely mounted gearbox. It uses a different system than the limited-edition Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 and Lamborghini Countach LPI 800-4, which used a supercapacitor in a mild-hybrid system, boosting power without the ability to drive on electricity alone, aside from in reverse – a trait the LB744 embraces.

Launch schedule for the Lamborghini LB744
On March 29, when the Aventador’s replacement is publicly introduced throughout the world, more information will be made available. Later this year, a launch in India is anticipated.
In an earlier interview with our sister newspaper Autocar UK, chief technical officer Rouven Mohr stated that the LB744 will be “totally new from the ground up.” He affirmed that this also applies to the impending Huracan successor.
“Nothing from any car has been carried over. According to the model, every component—engine, gearbox, transmission, etc.—is brand-new, according to Mohr. You may be confident that the car won’t fail you emotionally. We’ll follow the rules, but we’ll also work to make people feel better. I promise you that.
With its powerful V12 engine, Lamborghini dominates the market. Both Aventador models provide unrivaled driving enjoyment. Also, the exteriors are increasing their market share significantly. The Lamborghini Huracan, BMW i8, and Bugatti Veyron are a few rivals worth mentioning. The best option available at the price point is this one.
