Lamborghini’s New Flat-Plane Crank V8 Engine

Lamborghini's new twin-turbo V8 engine will have a 4.0L displacement and deliver just shy of 200 hp per liter.

Lamborghini has announced the development of the Lamborghini 634, the code-name for the successor to the Huracán, which will be part of the Italian super car’s high-performance electrified vehicle line-up. This new model will feature a twin-turbo V8 engine, integrated with a hybrid system that includes three electric motors and an eight-speed dual-clutch gearbox, recently introduced in the Lamborghini Revuelto.

The new twin-turbo V8 engine, designed from scratch in Sant’Agata Bolognese, aims to deliver superior performance and driving experience over the current Huracán range. The engine will have a 4.0L displacement and deliver just shy of 200 hp per liter. Lamborghini says it will achieve a maximum power of 789 hp between 9,000 and 9,750 rpm, with the engine capable of reaching up to 10,000 rpm.

The engine will deliver a maximum torque of 730Nm between 4,000 and 7,000rpm. The integration of the electric unit with the combustion engine aims to ensure smooth and powerful progression. The rear electric system includes an inverter and an axial electric unit. This system is capable of generating a maximum of 300Nm of torque and 110kW at 3,500 rpm, all while maintaining compact dimensions and low weight.

One of the key focuses of the new V8 was on engine sound, designed to create a unique and distinctive character. The new V8’s sound profile intensifies at high revs, providing a peak in volume and frequency, combined with the vibrations from the flat-plane crankshaft. The Lamborghini 634 is scheduled for release in 2024.
