Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann has said in a recent interview with German magazine Automobilewoche, that he tips the brand will launch its hybrid model by 2015.
Rather than being an all out green warrior however the Lamborghini hybrid will utilise a small electric motor in slow moving urban traffic but will allow full use of either a 10 or 12 cylinder engine (yet to be decided) when in full flight.
Mr Winkelmann also said during the interview that Lamborghini isn’t interested in following Audi or Mercedes-Benz’s footsteps into the all-electric arena anytime soon, though did hint that the Gallardo would be used as a test-bed model for the technology prior to any attempt on the Murcielago.
As coincidence would have it 2015 is the same date Ferrari has set to release its hybrid model. CarAdvice will keep you posted on any developments.
