Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann said the 910-horse Asterion LPI 910-4 plug-in hybrid supercar concept unveiled at the Paris auto show is a “ground-breaking, crucial step” for the Volkswagen-owned company.
The mid-engine, all-wheel-drive concept uses a 5.2-liter V-10 unit from the brand’s Huracan model as well as three electric motors and a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The three electric motors provide 300-horsepower. The Huracan’s engine produces 610-horses, taking the total to more than 900-horsepower.
The concept can travel 31 miles on electric power alone.
The Asterion’s horsepower places its performance right in the middle of the Porsche 918 Spyder (875-hp), McLaren P1 (903-hp) and Ferrari LaFerrari (950-hp).
The Asterion accelerates from 0-62 mph in 3 seconds and has a top speed of 199 mph. Its top speed running solely on electric power is 78 mph and it can travel for up to about 30 miles on electric power alone.
The letters “LPI” in the concept’s name stand for Longitudinale Posteriore Ibrido, or “hybrid” in Italian.
