Lamborghini stopped production of its sonorous 5.2-litre V10 with the end of the Huracan. Long live the V10.


The V10’s successor has some big boots to fill. However, if the first bits of juicy information is anything to go by then the V10’s successor will do just that. And then some.


Lamborghini has revealed that an all-new hybrid 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 will replace the iconic V10 and have a redline of 10,000 rpm. Yes. TEN THOUSAND RPM.


Mad, isn’t it? But then again, its Lamborghini we’re talking about here. The flat-plane V8 will be aided by a trio of rear-mounted electric motors and have a “hot-vee” configuration. The turbos will sit nicely in the valley between cylinder banks.

With this new engine at the heart of the Huracan’s successor, Lambo claims that the new supercar will ‘surpass’ the Huracan range in terms of performance and ‘driving emotion’. The engine will be mated to the gearbox found in the Revuelto PHEV.


739 horsepower is the figure quoted by Lamborghini for the V8. For context, the most powerful Huracan had 631 horsepower. The arrival of this hybrid V8 marks a new chapter for Lamborghini. It's a testament to the brand's unwavering commitment to innovation while staying true to its core values of power, performance, and sheer driving thrill.


With the V10 bowing out, petrolheads will soon look towards the used car market for pre-owned Huracans and maybe even Gallardos. YallaMotor is the ideal place to buy used car in UAE (and even selling) in the UAE. Do check our used car section.
