First information :

Lamborghini LB48H will be the Italian brand’s first hybrid Hypercar.

A prototype was showcased at a private event in Italy a few weeks ago.

Its a precursor to the Aventador replacement.

In terms of styling, the LB48H borrows design cues from the Terzo Millennio concept.

While, 200 prospective clients attended the event, it is believed that only 63 units of the Lamborghini LB48H will be built.

Production will start by end-2018 and deliveries are expected in the latter half of 2019.

It is likely to cost around $2.5 million before taxes.

They are going to use the 918's hybrid and use it on this setup. This will essentially be what Aventador's replacement will use. NA V12 engine with electric assist to make 850+hp.

I was at the debut in NY and placed a deposit.

It's 789 NA hp with a 49 hp gear regen that will never lose power - nothing like the 918.

The AV replacement at best get the J 770 hp and it's years away.

A question and weight level? Currently the SVJ has 1525 kg dry.

True on the SVJ - no idea they showed a clay model in NY.

Spring next year expect to see the car - til then I doubt much will be shared.

They are keeping the NA V12 adding hp with minimal weight.

Lamborghini keeping with heritage is anything but disappointing to their customers.

The last I heard, the electric assist is equivalent to 35PS (not 49HP), with the extra weight of the electrical stuff being 35 kilos.

Not that I care about the performance much, but that's really lame. What could that 35hp electric hp really accomplish?

I'm guessing they realized they were only able to sell so many "just body kits" and needed something new to entice buyers of multi-million dollar cars. Still, it's a heck of a better deal than stuff like the Veneno and Centenario.

For 2 million dollars or whatever they're charging for this, that is insanely lame. Valkyrie is providing far more power for far less weight. A 4 year old LaFerrari makes more power

You could not be more wrong - every new LE introduces a new technology and it's passed down to the road cars. Admit Lamborghini makes a busy looking car but pretty sure they didn't ask you to buy one

Lamborghini is producing fast cars and will continue with the money coming in from the SUV.

I'm pretty sure it's 49 added hp and a whopper V12.

Valkyrie requires 600k more and is about as usable as a BAC.

The Cosworth engine and parts is going to be eye watering to maintain as will the Merc - love them all but they are completely different builds.

It's not about a power war - you should learn about Lamborghini and it's heritage of which they value. SVJ puts down a lot less hp than the LaFerrari - care to wager which is faster on track

What I'm wondering/hoping is if they'll finally do away with the single-clutch gearbox. It's the one thing that kept me from putting down a deposit on the SVJ, and it pains me because I really wanted to want an SVJ. 😞

If you really wanted an SVJ you would buy it.

599GTO seems to be doing just fine
