Just when you think you’ve seen it all, we get incredible news coming from Lamborghini. The carmaker has been working on the most powerful Lamborghini to come, a model that will definitely be ahead of time with its new hybrid technology under the hood. The new Asterion, that should hit the market as a 2019 Lamborghini Asterion model, is named after the minotaur from the Greek mythology. You get the symbolism, right?
When it comes to exterior of the 2019 Lamborghini Asterion, the concept and the production probably will not be the same. While the concept has been presented with a much longer nose than it has been the case and a really short rear end, we think that such a model might not actually be produced. The reason is a generator that will be placed in the back end of this model. Instead, the new Asterion will appear with a shorter nose and its long body. It has been said that this model will share its modified platform with the Aventador. Such a platform uses aluminum, forged carbon fiber and titanium in its construction. The platform like this, but also its improved aerodynamics, will additionally boost its already powerful acceleration and performance. This hybrid coupe will definitely be the most attractive and impressive Lamborghini you have ever seen. It will probably stand on 20-inch front wheels and 21-inch rear wheels. As far as we have seen, the new Asterion will be offered in its blue Elektra body color.
The 2019 Lamborghini Asterion will be a two-seater. However, it has been said that its cabin should represent the most luxurious one you have ever seen. Its two big seats will also be ultimately comfortable and supportive, especially at high speeds. Besides seats, leather and other high-quality materials will cover its modern dashboard, the roof and doors. You will also find many aluminum and titanium details inside. There is a lack of information about technology you will find inside the new Asterion, but we can only imagine how futuristic Lamborghini will tend to make it. Safety systems and driver assist features should also be upgraded to a maximum.
The most interesting part about the 2019 Lamborghini Asterion will definitely be its innovative hybrid system under the hood. Namely, this model will use a 5.2-liter naturally aspirated V10 engine that delivers 602 horsepower. It is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. However, that’s not all. The engine will be combined with a generator found in the back end of this car, two electric motors in the front and a lithium-ion battery pack. All of them together are expected to provide the output of 910 horsepower! It has been said that the new Asterion will take 3.0 seconds to hit 60 mph and its top speed will be 199 mph.
2019 Lamborghini Asterion Release Date and Price
The release date of the 2019 Lamborghini Asterion is definitely a mystery at the moment. It has been estimated that its price should start around $200,000.
