Lamborghini Lights Up Monterey with the Lanzador Electric Reveal

A Glimpse into the Electric Future of Ultra GTs

  • Lamborghini unveils Lanzador, a vision of future electric, high-performance Ultra GT.

  • Advanced technology includes all-electric drive, active aerodynamics, and innovative driving dynamics control.

  • Design inspired by spaceships, introducing futuristic proportions and a unique pilot-centric interior.

Lamborghini has taken the wraps off the Lanzador concept at the Monterey Car Week. This vehicle is a statement of intent, laying out a blueprint for a fourth series production Lamborghini that is set to electrify the automotive world in 2028.

The Lanzador isn’t merely an innovative design exercise; it’s the embodiment of Lamborghini‘s “Direzione Cor Tauri” strategy towards decarbonization and electrification. This strategy commenced with the unveiling of the V12 plug-in hybrid Revuelto. The CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, Stephan Winkelmann, encapsulated the ambition behind the vehicle, stating, “With the fourth model concept, we are opening a new car segment: the Ultra GT.”

What sets the Lanzador apart? It is a high ground-clearance GT with a 2+2 seating configuration, emphasizing purity, technicality, and clarity in design. Its mission is to cater to a rising demographic of tech-forward enthusiasts by blending the thrill of a super sports car with daily driveability.

Breakthroughs in Technology & Design

From a technology perspective, the Lanzador offers more than just a glimpse into the future. It boasts an all-electric drive with a high-specific power electric motor on each axle, allowing for an adaptive drive in varying conditions. The all-wheel drive also comes equipped with active e-torque vectoring on the rear axle, promising dynamic cornering behaviour. A new-generation high-performance battery will ensure the vehicle doesn’t compromise on range.

Rouven Mohr, Lamborghini’s Chief Technical Officer, emphasized that the transition to electrification doesn’t equate to any dilution of the brand’s renowned performance. Lamborghini envisions a future where hardware components, software, and control systems work in concert, heralding an era of heightened integrated driving dynamics control.

The Lanzador also places the driver at the helm, echoing the feel of piloting an aircraft. A new driving dynamics control system, active aerodynamics, and active suspension provide the driver with unprecedented control and responsiveness.

Visually, the Lanzador is an evolution of Lamborghini’s distinctive design DNA. Inspired by spaceships and legendary Lamborghini models like the Sesto Elemento and Murciélago, it sports a revolutionary silhouette. The exterior design, described by Mitja Borkert, Head of Design Lamborghini, as “brave and unexpected,” is complemented by an interior layout that seamlessly melds the brand’s ‘feel like a pilot’ design philosophy with innovative utility solutions.

Presented in a specially-crafted liquid colour named Azzurro Abissale for Monterey Car Week, the Lanzador is a decisive stride forward for Lamborghini. This isn’t merely a concept; it is the harbinger of a production vehicle that will be birthed in Sant’Agata Bolognese in 2028, with Lamborghini gearing up for the expansion to facilitate its production.
