Lamborghini not planning to offer a production version of the Asterion concept

Article by Christian A., on October 8, 2014

At the 2014 Paris Motor Show, Lamborghini surprised us with its first plug-in hybrid supercar, the Asterion Concept. Looking like a modern Miura, the vehicle was our favourite concept car from the French capital. Despite making a buzz at the Paris Motor Show, Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelman told Maxim that the concept car will not see a production version.

“I strongly believe that this is not a car that will be in production and we will not do it”, said Winkelman. Despite the fact that not anyone could get one, Lamborghini CEO said that the company may be convinced to build a one-off for a customer for a hefty amount of money.

Still, a one-off production version won’t be hybrid though. For those who don’t know, the Asterion Concept is powered by a 5.2-liter naturally aspirated V10 engine that produces 610 hp (449 kW) and 560 Nm of torque, as well as by three electric motors that deliver a total output of 300 hp (220 kW).

The total output delivered by the hybrid system is 910 hp (669 kW), while power is delivered to the road through a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and via the permanent all-wheel drive system.

The Lamborghini Asterion Concept hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.0 seconds, while top speed is 320 km/h or 200 mph. Using just the electric motors, the concept offers a top speed of 125 km/h (77 mph) and a range of 50 km or 31 miles.
