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 5.2 L (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 just to Lamborghini Asterion in-game, was added in the Santa's Gift Update as a high end Class A car with the following statistics:
- Starting rank: 1343
- MAX rank: 1563 (+220)
- MAX+PRO rank: 1695 (+132)
- Tuning Kit bonus: +45
- Stock-to-MAX+PRO rank difference: 353
- Nitro Efficiency: 5/10/15
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.
With the introduction of the TVR Sagaris, 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. The addition of the Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition, Apollo Intensa Emozione, Arrinera Hussarya GT, and Audi R8 e-tron Special Edition further renders the Asterion vulnerable at most ranks.
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 now appears as a mid Class B car with the following rank statistics:
- Starting rank: 1,809 (40 BPs)
- 1* rank: 2,023
- 2* rank:
- 3* rank:
- 4* rank:
