Lamborghini has revealed that its highly anticipated codenamed 634 model, the successor to the Huracán, will feature a new hybrid twin-turbo V8 engine. This new addition to Lamborghini’s High-Performance Electrified Vehicle (HPEV) lineup showcases a significant leap in engineering and performance.

The engine is a clean-sheet design from Lamborghini’s headquarters in Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy. It combines a twin-turbo V8 with a hybrid system incorporating three electric motors and an eight-speed dual-clutch gearbox, recently seen in the Lamborghini Revuelto. This hybrid powertrain is engineered to deliver an impressive output of nearly 900 hp.

Its 4L twin-turbo V8 boasts a specific power of 200 hp/liter, delivering 800 hp between 9,000 and 9,750 rpm and can reach a maximum engine speed of 10,000 rpm — figures typically reserved for racing engines. Additionally, the engine generates a maximum torque of 540 lb-ft between 4,000 and 7,000 rpm, promising an exhilarating driving experience.

The hybrid system is strategically placed between the combustion engine and the gearbox, enhancing the engine’s performance with an additional 220 lb-ft of torque and 110 kW of power at 3,500 rpm. This setup maintains compact dimensions and low weight, essential for high-performance vehicles.

One of the standout features of this new powerplant is its distinctive sound, designed to enhance the driving experience. The V8 engine’s characteristics intensify in a crescendo, reaching a peak in volume and frequency at high revs, complemented by the flat-plane crankshaft’s vibrations, creating an immersive sensory experience.

Set to launch in 2024, the Lamborghini 634 will mark a significant milestone in the brand’s “Direzione Cor Tauri” program, which aims to progressively electrify the automaker’s range — a journey that began in 2023 with the debut of the Revuelto and most recently is reflected through the Urus SE.
