The Lamborghini Asterion LPi 910-4, also referred to as simply Lamborghini Asterion, is a hybrid concept supercar that was unveiled at the 2014 Paris Motor Show.
Named after the actual half-man, half-bull hybrid (Minotaur) of Greek legend, the Lamborghini Asterion LPi 910-4 is the first hybrid Lamborghini in the history of the company.
The Lamborghini Asterion uses the Lamborghini Huracán LP 610-4's 5.2L (5,204 cc) naturally aspirated V10 engine, which alone produces 602 hp (449 kW) due to being sourced from the Huracán LP 610-4. As a hybrid, the Asterion features one electric motor on the transaxle and another two on the front axle. Its combined power output in hybrid mode (both petrol and electric) is 898 hp (670 kW). It is currently speculated that its torque is above 413 ft·lb (560 N·m).
The Lamborghini Asterion uses the same seven-speed Lamborghini Doppia Frizione (LDF) dual-clutch automatic transmission as on the Huracán and is all-wheel-drive, with the front wheels also powered by the electric motors. The car weighs 3968 lb (1800 kg), giving it a power-to-weight ratio of 6.59 lb/2.99 kg per hp or 334 hp per tonne.
The Lamborghini Asterion is stated to do 0-60 mph in 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 199 mph (320 km/h).
The Asterion was confirmed to not enter production in favor of the Lamborghini Urus.
The Lamborghini Asterion LPi 910-4, shortened simply to Lamborghini Asterion in-game, was added to the game in the Santa's Gift Update, as a mid-high end Class A car and the fourth and last Lamborghini vehicle added in 2015.
As a mid-high end Class A car, the Lamborghini Asterion begins with 1343 rank points, maxes out at 1563 rank points (same as the Pagani Zonda R), and caps at 1695 rank points with Pro Kits. The Tuning Kit bonus is +45 rank points. The Asterion's main rivals are the McLaren 570S, Lamborghini Estoque, Lamborghini Huracán, TVR Sagaris, and Lotus Evora Sport 410.
The Asterion can reach its maximum total speed of 284.0 mph/457.3 km/h in 3.6 seconds and sports similar handling and drifting capabilities to the Lamborghini Huracán, although it still doesn't drift as sharply as the Huracán.
In summary, the Asterion is a stat upgrade to the McLaren P1™ with some handling similarities to the Lamborghini Huracán and Miura.
Upon its introduction, the Lamborghini Asterion was a frequently-used car for Multiplayer, often rivaled by the likes of the Lamborghini Miura, Range Rover Evoque Coupe HSE Dynamic, Shelby Cobra 427, Lamborghini Estoque, and Chevrolet 2016 Camaro SS. As of the Multiplayer League Update, with the introduction of the TVR Sagaris, and the Championship Update, with the addition of the Aston Martin Vulcan and McLaren Mercedes MP4-25, the Asterion's dominance in Multiplayer has receded. This is made even worse with the additions of the Lotus Evora Sport 410 and McLaren MP4/8, all of which are faster and more competitive than the Asterion at almost any rank.
Here is a list of Multiplayer-friendly upgrade setups the Asterion can use:
- 0401 2040 = A1459/1695 = 252.9 mph/407.2 km/h @ A1459
- 0500 1020 = A1459/1695 = 253.0 mph/407.4 km/h @ A1459
- 0500 5050 = A1522/1695 = 267.1 mph/430.1 km/h @ A1522
- 0502 4050 = A1525/1695 = 267.8 mph/431.2 km/h @ A1525
- 0505 5154 = A1599/1695 = 280.3 mph/451.4 km/h @ A1599
In Events, the Asterion now replaces the Savage Rivale GTR and McLaren P1™ in mid-high Class A events, although as of the Lunar New Year 2017 Update, the Asterion now suffers the problem of restrictive availability.
Starting with the Lunar New Year 2017 Update, the Lamborghini Asterion is offered as one of various possible rewards by watching a bonus video ad, available at the main menu. Before that, it cost 525,000 to purchase.
The Lamborghini Asterion costs 1,901,000 to max out. Pro Kits require 9 of each Class A Parts card, 8 V10 Engines (contradicting the car's use of a hybrid engine), 2 Initial Tech cards, 2 Early Tech cards, 12 Mid-Tech cards, and 8 Advanced Tech cards.
