Plug-in electric hybrids come in many different forms and Italian supercar maker Lamborghini, is about to push the boundaries to new extremes with its LB744. 


It is a plug-in hybrid, but the Lamborghini designers prefer to term it a High Performance Electrified Vehicle. It offers a combination of a V 12 engine with 3 electric motors. This means it can produce around 1000 bhp. 

But while it is power and performance that may grab the attention, its construction is also at the cutting edge of technology. The LB744 is based on a new aeronautics-inspired chassis, with a monocoque made entirely of multi-technology carbon fibre. 

The monofuselage represents a significant step forward from its predecessor, the Aventador, in terms of torsional stiffness, lightweight qualities and driving dynamics. It is the first super sports car to be fitted with a 100% carbon fibre front structure. 

The design means the LB744 monofuselage is 10% lighter than the Aventador chassis, and the front frame is 20% lighter than its aluminium predecessor. The torsional stiffness has also greatly improved. 

Lamborghini says the LB744 represents a new “year zero” in relation to the use of carbon fibre in car production.
