The end of the V10 is unfortunately nigh.
The Lamborghini Huracán is, beyond a shadow of a doubt, one of the most iconic supercars ever created, and much of its splendor is owed to its V10 engine. From its inception, the V10 has been a rare and special power unit, and as Lamborghini and the rest of the automotive world begin transitioning towards electrification, the V10’s short time as a niche high performance engine is coming to an end.
The naturally aspirated 10-cylinder engine developed immense power, but more importantly, a gloriously unique sound that only a handful of other cars made could come close to. However, the progress of the automotive industry means that the V10 era is coming to an end for Lamborghini, and with cars like the Huracán Tecnica and Huracán Sterrato, the Fighting Bull is sending its beloved V10 engine off beautifully.
As the future quickly approaches, a prototype of the replacement for the Lamborghini Huracán has recently been spied in a new video on the YouTube channel Acriore outside Lamborghini’s Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy headquarters, and despite being heavily camouflaged, what couldn’t be concealed was its lack of a V10 exhaust note.
Rumor has it that Lamborghini’s upcoming new entry-level supercar will feature a twin-turbocharged V8 with a hybrid system, akin to that of the new Revuelto, which produces an incredibly impressive 1,001 total horsepower.
While it may be unfortunate that the V10 era of Lamborghini’s 60-year history is quickly coming to an end, the possibilities of Lamborghini’s future supercar are optimistic, especially considering the impressive Revuelto’s power figure. Lamborghini is known for its incredible supercar repertoire, so there is little doubt that whatever powers the Huracán’s replacement is sure to be excellent and at the cutting edge of engineering and technology.
