Lamborghini Highlights LB744 Carbon Backbone as the Successor to Aventador

The Aventador’s replacement has been teased by Lamborghini a few weeks before its official debut. The most recent video provides a glimpse of the LB744’s ‘monofuselage’ which is constructed entirely from carbon fiber.

The upcoming Aventador successor will be the pioneer in the supercar realm to feature a front structure solely made of carbon fiber, including front-impact structures built from forged carbon.

Lamborghini asserts that the carbon monofuselage is 10% lighter than the Aventador chassis. Moreover, the front frame showcases a 20% reduction in weight, while torsional stiffness has surged by 25% in comparison to its predecessor.

The rear chassis is composed of high-strength aluminum alloys and incorporates two hollow castings in the rear dome area, merging the rear suspension towers and powertrain suspension into a unified component, leading to a decrease in weight and an increase in rigidity.

The Aventador successor, codenamed LB744, marks Lamborghini’s inaugural High Performance Electrified Vehicle (HPEV) supercar. It is equipped with an all-new 6.5-liter V12 naturally aspirated engine that generates 814 hp @ 9250 rpm and 525 lb-ft of torque at 6750 rpm. The engine is coupled with an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and two electric motors.
