An Electric Bull from Lamborghini is in the Works
Over the past few years hybridized Supercars like the Ferrari LaFerrari, Porsche 918 Spyder, McLaren P1, and Acura NSX have come to the automotive forefront, and now some manufacturers are looking to go all-electric.Even the most reserved brands are looking into it, with the most recent rumor that Lamborghini, a unit of Volkswagen’s (OTCMKT:VLKAY) Audi division is building and electric Supercar.https://youtu.be/9QHW8OT9fCk
As it turns out, a new video from claims that Lamborghini is working on an all-electric Bull dubbed the Vitola.
The report suggests that the car will use the J1 Architecture like the Porsche Mission E and will also use the same fast-charging system.
According to the report, the Supercar will be able to blast to 60 mph in about 2.5 secs with top speed coming in at around 186 mph.
Horsepower figures are still a mystery, but with that kind of sprint time, expect it to pack more that then Lamborghini Aventador SV which comes correct with 740 hp and 509 pound-feet of torque.
Those kinds of numbers in mind, and the added weight from an on-board battery leads analysts to believe that the car could produce upward of 900 hp.
Even with cars like the Rimac Concept One and the Quant F already being seen, there still are no serious, production Supercars out there that rely on battery power only.
The closest really, is the Tesla’s (NASDQ:TSLA) Tesla P100, but it is not a Supercar. Then there’s the Porsche Mission E, which has apparently been approved for production, the timetable for it coming the market is not yet fixed.
Also, the word is that McLaren is working on an all-electric Supercar as well, but we wait for confirmation on that offering.
An electric Supercar would be Wild coming from a brand like Lamborghini. An all-electric car has big shoes to fill.
Let’s see what the future holds.
