No turbo chargers but does not mention no superchargers
Anyway if they do go ahead with the Lambo SUV, it wont make sense to give it a high revving NA engine.
We can hope the Gallardo will get a 600 PS NA V10 once again. Then change when the new R8 4.0 TFSI comes out.
5.2 FSI being replaced by the 4.0 TFSI one day? Nothing new here. I wish only the V10 engines kept being developed to achieve efficiency and all these stuff. On the other side of the channel we see that "there is no replacement for displacement" motto still on the page (2013 Dodge Viper with an 8.7-litre).
The V10 can still be improved and so can the gearbox. If there is anything we've learnt by the Porsche 991 and the new SL is that there is extraordinary amount of performance to gain by cutting weight. That is cheaper and carries more benefits than developing an entirely new engine. This is the highest level of sports car and if Lamborghini want to establish themselves as a brand with racing pedigree then they better flex their engine improvements like Ferrari and Porsche.
Bravo! No forced induction :eusa_clap:eusa_clap
