When people hear the name Lamborghini, the first association is high performance supercar. This company has always been known as a really eccentric car manufacturer which made pretty crazy cars. The same thing they are trying to achieve with this one. It will have a completely different design and a brand new powertrain.
The exterior design has been inspired by the Miura and the Urraco. The front end will have a long hood and sharp back, which will provide to it a nice aerodynamic balance. The front end looks very similar to the Aventador, so the Asterion has small triangular headlights, a small spliter, but also big air intakes in the lower part of the bumper. This active aerodynamic changes the shape of the car in order to provide better driving and allows the enginners to give it a dramatic look.
2018 Lamborghini Asterion Engine
Engine wise, the new 2018 Lamborghini Asterion will probably use something different than the previous Lambo cars. Under the hood will be the same basic V-10 engine as in the Huracan which has the capacity to deliver 610 ponies, but it will come with different transmission and a small bonus. The Asterion will also have three electric motors, one in the front and two in the back, with the capacity to produce around 400 hp and more than 900 pound-feet of torque. The total maximum combined power will be 910 hp and around 1000 pound-feet of torque, respectively. These numbers make the Asterion the most powerful Lamborghini ever. With its electric motors and a battery pack, it will be able to drive solely on electricity for 50 miles. It is very nice when comparing with its main competitors.
The fuel consumption should be very low and at highway speed it should get 35 miles per gallon on average. The performance should be more than impressive. The car will probably have power to achieve from 0 to 62 mph in less than three seconds. That makes the Lamborghini Asterion even faster than the Aventador. It should come with maximum speed of over 200 mph.
Price and release date
There are many things to like about the 2018 Lamborghini Asterion. The engine, the crazy performance, exterior look etc. However, some of them won’t be so great. The main bad thing is its price. The company said that the Asterion would cost around one million dollars, which would make it very expensive comparing the Asterion to its main rivals.
