Having just unveiled the all-new flagship Revuelto supercar, Lamborghini has confirmed replacements for the current Huracan and Urus will be unveiled next year.
Production of these models for the Australian market will start in 2025.
With the hybridisation of the Aventador replacement now complete, the future of the next-generation Huracan and Urus are also confirmed to be electrified with both new, as-yet unnamed models set to feature hybrid powertrains.
The boss of Lamborghini Asia Pacific, Francesco Scardaoni, confirmed to CarExpert the vehicles will be launched in what will be an incredibly busy two years for the iconic supercar manufacturer.
The new Revuelto will be making its way to the first Australian customers in the second half of 2024 with around 50 units expected to land in Australia next year, while deliveries of the new Urus and Huracan will start in 2025.
Lamborghini registered 176 new cars in Australia in 2022, up from 131 in 2021. These figures would have been substantially higher if not for long wait times and extended transit delays.
If you’re wondering what will power the new Urus and Huracan, don’t bet on a V12. Despite Ferrari putting its most prized engine in the Purosangue SUV, Mr Scardaoni told CarExpert the company’s brand new and bespoke V12 will be kept for the flagship model only.
Nonetheless, he did confirm the new Huracan will be using an all-new, Lamborghini-designed engine as well, breaking the link with the current 5.2-litre Audi co-developed engine.
CarExpert believes the Huracan replacement will be powered by a new naturally aspirated V10 hybrid to differentiate it from the V8 and V6 offerings of Ferrari and McLaren.
The Urus replacement will continue to use a platform from the Volkswagen Group and, like the current model, it’s expected to share its engines and transmission with Porsche and Audi.
Australia continues to be a rapidly growing market for Lamborghini and according to Mr Scardaoni, if the current list of ever increasing pre-orders for the Revuelto eventuate to deliveries (as is expected), Australia will soon be a really big market for the Italian brand.
The brand is electrifying its line-up ahead of the introduction of its first electric vehicle later this decade. A new model line, it’ll take the shape of a 2+2 and is expected to launch in 2028. It’ll be followed by an electric Urus.
