The new Lamborghini Asterion hybrid fully uncovered

Lamborghini’s first plug-in hybrid, the Asterion LPI 910-4, has just been revealed at the Paris Motor Show. The two-seater coupe measures 4.7m in length and tips the scales at 1800 kg.

The Lamborghini Asterion is powered by a 5.2-litre V10 engine borrowed from Huracan capable of producing 610 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque connected to a dual-clutch seven-speed transmission. There are also three electric motors that provide 300 hp and the combined power output reaches 910 hp. As a result, acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h takes just 3 seconds and the supercar hits a top speed of 320 km/h.

Running on electric power, the Asterion has a top speed of 125 km/h and is able to travel for 50 km. Fuel economy figures are estimated at only 4.12 litres/100 km and CO2 emissions at 98 grams per kilometre. There are three drive modes – full electric, hybrid and thermal, all of them being available via buttons on the steering wheel.
