2016 Lamborghini Asterion LPI 910-4
Updated March 27, 2015
The technological side of the 2016 Lamborghini Asterion LPI 910-4 shows that exotic cars are now the pinnacles of innovation striving for greatness in both form and function and not just the rudimentary principle of excessive power.
Ah Lamborghini how your ownership has been passed through the hands of more companies than a batch of toxic home equity loans over the years and just like many entities on the verge of fiscal meltdown, it takes the frugal Germans to take ownership in order for multiple asses to be saved. Since VW Group took control of Lamborghini they managed to work out many of the common plagues that Lamborghinis faced which many were due to the lack of refinement. Italians are incredible at designing exotic cars but when it comes to the details they would rather be home drinking a nice vino and making love to their mistresses (Can’t blame them there). Now the Germans are far more detailed oriented and because of this you get a reliable car (unless built around Oktoberfest) with properly functioning accoutrements. So the marriage of the two minds makes for an incredible super car and super filthy lovemaking.
The Lamborghini Asterion LPI 910-4 is the culmination of several factors. The looks based off the gorgeous Miura, F1 KERS system energy regeneration, high-output 5.2L V-10 petrol engine, carbon fiber construction and the latest in technological accoutrements. Now the name Asterion comes from the Minotaur meaning half bull, half man. This represents the hybrid technology that is used with the Asterion. This mid-engine GT car has not only the 602bhp V-10 but 3-electric motors for a total output of 910hp to all four wheels! That puts this car at a rating more than Kenny Blocks’ 845hp AWD 65 Ford Mustang.
The 2016 Lamborghini Asterion LPI 910-4 has the ability to average 57mpg due to the 31 mile all-electric range and top speed of 77mph before petrol engine assistance is needed. 0-60 is said to be 3.0 sec or faster and the top speed right near 200mph. The car does have extra weight due to all the electric motors and extra gizmos that accompany the hybrid system but that is why this is a GT car and not a Superleggera.
As exotic cars like Ferrari, Lamborghini, Pagani, Koenigsegg, etc fight for high horsepower numbers means that rich folks will pay for the technological advancements and then soon the rest of us in the future can get a better electric-gas hybrid AWD R32 Golf, etc because of it.
