Lamborghini has shared some information about the new engine; the replacement comes in the form of a flat-plane crankshaft V8 with 3 hybrid motors, including one positioned between the engine and transmission. The engine is expected to make 789 horsepower and will rev to 10,000rpm. For development the company is calling the model the Lamborghini ‘634’.
