Lamborghini LB744 - Driving Modes

Just a few days before the premiere of the first V12 HPEV (High Performance Electrified Vehicle) hybrid super sports car, Lamborghini gives an insight into the car’s driving dynamics. The new car, project name LB744, is designed and developed to deliver absolute excitement and control in all situations and in all grip conditions, providing the driver with a level of confidence and connection with the car never experienced before. The innovations that place the LB744 at the apex of its category include the architecture and balance of the car; the cutting-edge approach to the chassis and the aerodynamic design; and the new hybrid powertrain that makes it possible to maximize the electric motor support and introduce new driving modes, including zero-emission 4WD, for a total of 13 different driving experiences. The car features an unprecedented layout: a 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 mid-engine, three electric motors, two of which are located on the front e-axle and one integrated into the new 8-speed dual-clutch transmission, arranged for the first time behind the combustion engine and transversely to the V12. The tunnel, a space traditionally reserved for the gearbox since the era of the Countach, is now the location of a new lithium-ion battery with high specific power that drives the electric motors.

Inevitably the onset of the electric car age has led to car makers trying to prove their credentials by lapping the track as fast as they can; here’s the lowdown on the five fastest to have done so to date:
