Don't expect Lamborghini to jump on the hybrid-powered hypercar bandwagon anytime soon. Because if recent reports are to be believed, the brand will focus on naturally-aspirated engines for a while to come.
According to US website Motor Trend, Lamborghini boss Stephan Winkelmann said the time is not right for a hybrid Lambo, despite the availability of suitable technology in the Volkswagen Group catalogue.
This means that, while Ferrari, McLaren and Porsche push ahead with petrol-electric offerings, the Italian supermarque will continue to explore the limits of high-performance naturally-aspirated power.
Elsewhere in the Lamborghini range, Winkelmann believes the upcoming Urus SUV will be a "game changer" for the brand, helping to push the carmaker's sales and contribute to the Volkswagen Group's hunt for global sales supremacy.
"It’s something that will fit very well with the DNA of the brand, because we have not only done sports cars in the history of Lamborghini, we’ve also done GT cars, we’ve done 2+2s, and we were the first ones to do a luxury SUV back in the 80s," Winkelmann told Motor Trend.
And while details for the production Urus are still to be revealed, Winkelmann added that the new SUV is "very consistent" with the company's values.
"It's going to be a game change because it's going to make a difference," he said.
