Lamborghini has revealed more details about its new Lamborghini LMDh prototype, which will be powered by a twinturbocharged V8 hybrid engine.
The new LMDH prototype will compete in the FIA World Endurance Championship and in the GTP class of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. The car will debut in competition for the first time in the 2024 racing season.
In accordance with the LMDh regulations issued by the Automobile Club of the West (ACO), the International Motorsports Association (IMSA) and the International Automobile Federation (FIA), the car will be equipped with a hybrid propulsion system consisting of an internal combustion engine and an energy recovery system with a total output of no more than 500 kW (681 hp). Along with the singlesupplier ERS kit, Lamborghini opted to use a 90degree twinturbocharged 8cylinder internal combustion engine developed by Squadra Corse’s motorsports department.
As Automobili Lamborghini embarks on the future of hybridization in the production of its road cars, LMDh represents a special energy and performance project based on the experience of future generations of its sports cars, fully in line with Cor Tauri’s strategy. The Squadra Corse thus takes a step into the world of hybriddriven motorsport and is ideal for Lamborghini’s transition to hybrid technology.
