Lamborghini has announced details about the powertrain for the successor to the Huracán, revealing a cutting-edge 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine paired with three electric motors. This new hybrid setup, designed entirely in-house by Lamborghini, promises an impressive 10,000-rpm redline and 789 horsepower from the internal combustion engine alone. The official debut of this highly anticipated model, reportedly named “Temerario,” is expected to take place in August, potentially at the prestigious Monterey Car Week.

The heart of what may be called the Temerario is an all-new engine, believed to share its origins with the SC63 Le Mans Hypercar’s powerplant, though with an increased capacity from 3.8 to 4.0 liters. This engine features a flat-plane crankshaft and is complemented by three electric motors, akin to the setup in the Lamborghini Revuelto. A sophisticated eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, developed for Lamborghini’s V12 flagship models, will also be utilized in the Temerario.

While Lamborghini has yet to disclose the combined output of the V8 and electric motors, they have shared some interesting details. The rear electric motor, situated between the engine and transmission, is capable of delivering 147 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque. This is a notable increase compared to the Revuelto’s rear starter motor/generator. The front motors in the Revuelto, which generate 258 lb-ft each, are expected to complement the overall powertrain system, ensuring seamless torque delivery across the rpm range.

The V8’s peak performance includes 789 horsepower between 9,000 and 9,750 rpm and 538 lb-ft of torque from 4,000 to 7,000 rpm. Additionally, rumors suggest that the turbochargers in this new V8 engage above 7,000 rpm, enhancing the engine’s high-revving character.

Anticipation builds for what we think will be called the Temerario and its official reveal, slated for August. Given the prominence of Monterey Car Week, running from August 9-18, it is likely that Lamborghini will choose such a prestigious event to showcase their latest creation. Until then, enthusiasts and potential buyers can look forward to more teasers as the launch date approaches.
