Lamborghini debuts the 910 horsepower Asterion hybrid
What's up folks?
I'm Antoine Goodwin on the floor of the 2014 Paris Auto Show, and we're taking a look at Lamborghini's first hybrid.
It's called the Asterion, and it puts out 910 horsepower.
Now it does this with a V10 engine that mounted in the middle like any other Lamborghini but it's paired with three electric motors.
One in between the engine and the seven speed DCT.
And another two at the front axle that are going to take over for your all wheel drive, your situation.
Now this is able to operate in three different modes.
One where it just uses the gasoline engine.
One where it only uses the two electric motors at the front.
Basically the first front wheel Lamborghini.
It also was able to operate as a hybrid where it can get the most power out of it.
Zero to 60 is going to come in about 3 seconds flat.
And it has a top speed of about 200 mph.
That's pretty impressive for a hybrid.
The Lamborghini Asterion joins the ranks of the Mclaren T1 and the La Ferrari and the Porsche 918 Spyder as yet another super car hybrid.
It's also got about a 30 mile range under full electric power, so you can drive greenly around town if you need to.
Lamborghini has positioned this as more of a comfortable everyday super car, so it's not as track-focused as the [INAUDIBLE].
but, it's just a concept at this point so we don't know if we'll see anything like this on the roads any time in the near future.
