For the first time in its history, Automobili Lamborghini is participating at the Concours d’Elegance at the Villa d’Este. The prestigious competition for classic cars takes place on 23 of May at the park of Grand Hotel Villa d’Este, and on 24 May at Villa Erba, Cernobbio, on the shores of Lake Como.
Automobili Lamborghini will enter the Lamborghini Asterion LPI 910-4, which was presented for the first time at the Paris Auto Salon in 2014 as Lamborghini’s plug-in hybrid (PHEV) technology demonstrator, to win the highly coveted Design Award for conceptual cars and prototypes. This prize was introduced in 2002 at the Concours d’
d’Elegance at Villa d’Este to celebrate automotive’s glorious past with the innovative future.
The Asterion will be accompanied on the international stage of Villa d’Este by Filippo Perini, Head of Centro Stile
Lamborghini, who designed the Asterion together with his team.
The Asterion features a high performance hybrid system with a 5.2 liter, longitudinally placed, mid-mounted, naturally aspirated V10 engine which, in combination with three electric motors, provides a maximum power output of 669 kW (910 hp). The Asterion accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 3.0 seconds, with a top speed of 320 km/h.
The Asterion LPI 910-4 is rated at an exceptionally low CO2 emission of 98g/km, but more importantly for city driving, the Asterion has a pure electric range of 50 km.
