Autophiles, perk up: rumor has it that there’s a new Lamborghini coming to the 2019 Frankfurt Motorshow. The bad news: all 63 units might already be sold out.
According to Designboom, Lamborghini plans on sharing its concept for the LB48H Terzo Millennio at the event, which includes the iconic rear axle V12 engine––and a few surprises. The word is that one of those surprises is an increase in horsepower, specifically a total output of 838 horsepower.
The initial plans for the Terzo Millennio were shared in 2017 as a collaborative project between the automotive company and MIT laboratories. The electric hybrid supercar will also feature “self-healing” capabilities in the form of a car-wide health monitoring process. The new Lamborghini will be able to detect various damages (think: cracks in windows) through a system of microchannels containing “healing chemistries,” according to Designboom, spanning the car.
Given the car’s hybrid composition, the actual design utilizes lightweight materials like carbon fiber to cut down on the stress and aging of the automobile while continuing to allow it to perform at its highest level.
Again, so far what we really have on this car are rumors––the unveiling at the Frankfurt Motorshow will bring with it confirmation and new details. But hearsay has it that this car will be going for $2.5 million.
