Lamborghini Asterion LPI 910-4 concept, 2014 Paris Auto ShowEnlarge Photo
In front of a private group at this past weekend's Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, Lamborghini showed off something new that it's most likely prepping for low-volume production. Potential buyers and other very special people got an early glimpse of a car that we expect to see at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show next March.
This was confirmed, according to Autoblog, by Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann during a presentation in Monterey over the weekend.
The big news for this upcoming ultra bull is that it's expected to carry a hybrid powertrain. That's exciting for Lamborghini fans because it means the automaker has its sights set on battling the other ultra-performance exotic machines out there from the likes of Ferrari, Porsche, and McLaren. The LaFerrari, 918 Spyder, and P1 have all embraced the power of the electron, and now it's Lamborghini's turn to do the same. Of course, the automaker has already shown us a hybrid concept in the form of 2014's Asterion LPI 910-4.
Since it's quite early, there's of course no word on cost or production count. We can make two very clear predictions for you the reader:
A) You can't afford one.
B) If you could afford one, you've already missed out on the chance to buy one.
If both of those don't apply to you, we'd like to chat.
