This is the Italian automakers first ever hybrid car, so naturally they went al out with it. From design to production, this car truly is a stunner. And we’re not just talking about how it looks.
Although its looks is definitely worth a mention. This car is truly breathtakingly beautiful. In typical Lamborghini design style, the Asterion glistens under the lights on stage at the Paris Motor Show.
The blue colour is also a perfect colour for this car. It’s eye catching and dramatic without being too overbearing.
But let’s get down to the stuff that really matters: the inside.

On the electric side of things, the Asterion also features and electric motor that sits between the engine and the gearbox as well as two additional electric motors at the front of the car.
These electric motor produce a further 300 horsepower, which, combined with the 61o horsepower from the V10, makes the Asterion produce a super powerful 910 horsepower. Wow.
