Lamborghini has revealed more details on the all-new Lamborghini LB744, which replaces the Aventador, ahead of its big debut later this month. With the codename LB744, the new Lamborghini Aventador plug-in hybrid V12 replacement has based on a newly designed “monocoque” made entirely of carbon fiber. Inspired by “Aeronautics,” the “monofuselage” reduces the weight of the new Lamborghini LB744 by 10 percent and increases stiffness by 25 percent.
Lamborghini proudly says that the ‘LB744’ is the first super sports car whose front structure is made entirely of carbon fiber. This structure not only boasts about weight reduction but also improves safety. And also, the carbon fiber used for the front cone structures absorbs twice the energy of the metal structure installed in the Aventador Ultimae.
Sant’Agata Bolognese company uses a patent technology first implemented in 2008 called “Forged Composites.” High-strength aluminum alloys are used in the rear with two casting heads for the shock towers and powertrain suspension. These are combined into a single component to reduce weight, increase stiffness and strength, as well as minimize welding lines.
Thenew plug-in hybrid Lamborghini LB744is powered by a 6.5L naturally aspirated V12 engine with three electric motors. Aventador Replacement uses a 3.8 kWh li-ion battery pack and can cover a distance of more than 10km through 100% of EV driving mode, Lamborghini says. With the power generated by the three-electric motors, Aventador LB744 produces a combined 1000 hp and 1010 lb-ft of torque. The third e-motor sits above the newly-developed 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and serves as the starter motor and the generator.
When the LB744 is in EV mode, it transmits power to the rear axle, and depending on the driving mode and road conditions, its power can be directed to the rear wheels. While the Internal Combustion Engine drives the rear wheels, two electric motors transmit power to the front axle. The most-powerful racing bull ever developed, the Lamborghini LB744 has a 9,500 rpm redline. The plug-in hybrid setup reduces CO2 emission by about 30 percent, and the efficiency will also be much higher when compared to the previous Aventador models.
