LAM­BORGH­INI AS­TE­RION

Meet the Earth-loving, low-car­bon Lambo

Australian T3 - - TECHLIFE -

1/ Hy­brid hot­tie Like its ri­vals, Lam­borgh­ini’s gone petrol-elec­tric, but the el­e­gant As­te­rion is more warp-drive GT than rag­ing bull.

2/ Gen­tle­man’s rel­ish It may be low-key for a Lambo, but with a 449kW V10 and 221kW of elec­trick­ery, it’s a 322 km/h road rocket.

3/ Rang­ing bull The elec­tric sub­sys­tem packs a lithium-ion bat­tery and gives this un­likely Lambo a pure-elec­tric range of 50 km at up to 126 km/h. But the re­ally bonkers bit is the hatch­back-hum­bling 24 km/l.
