 New Lamborghini Temerario’s V8 Winds To An Epic 10,000 RPM

  • Revuelto’s baby brother launches this year with a twin-turbo, hybrid V8 instead of the departing Huracan’s V10
  • 4.0-liter flat-plane crank engine spins to 10,000 rpm and cranks out 789 hp
  • Electric motor sends an additional 148 hp to the rear wheels

Lamborghini’s smallest supercar swaps from a naturally aspirated V10 to a twin-turbo V8 this August, but unlike most cars that have switched to turbo power, Lambo’s spins even higher than the machine it replaces, topping out at an epic 10,000 rpm.

The replacement for the decade-old Huracan – which could be named Temerario – downsizes from a 5.2-liter V10 to a 4.0-liter V8, but this definitely isn’t the same VW Group V8 that’s used in countless big sedans and SUVs, including Lamborghini’s own Urus. Said to be a brand new engine bespoke to Lamborghini, it features a flat-plane crank V8 for a true, hard-edged supercar experience.

Exact specifications are still under wraps at this stage, but we do know that the V8 on its own pumps out 789 hp (800 hp) and 538 lb-ft (730 Nm) of torque, which makes it far more powerful than the hottest of the outgoing Huracans, which generated 631 hp (640 PS) and 417 lb-ft (565 Nm).

And that’s before we factor in the new car’s hybrid hardware. That comes in the form of a single electric motor mounted at the back of the car, sending 148 hp (150 PS / 100 kW) and 221 lb-ft (300 Nm) to the rear axle, Autocar reports, while other sources claim there are two more motors mounted at the front end, as on the Revuelto. Lamborghini hasn’t disclosed the total system output but it could be as high as 900 hp (913 PS), maybe even higher.

Though Lamborghini has yet to confirm the new car’s name, it recently filed a trademark for ‘Temerario’ and confirmed that the new car will be unveiled in August. Visually, the V8 supercar’s design sticks close to the wedge template laid down by the Countach over half a century ago and continued with the Huracan, but there are some major styling differences between the new model and the old. The Temerario has slim lights, deep side air intakes, a double-bubble roof, and a high-set, single exhaust tailpipe.
