A Unique Manifestation of Performance and Distinction
It's time for the Lamborghini Lanzador EV concept to take us on a journey envisioning what a fully electric Lamborghini could be, with a name that reflects our expectations. The Lanzador EV conjures an intricately sculpted exterior design reminiscent of some distinctive elements from the 2015 Asterion GT hybrid's design. A similar blue paint shade remains present, referred to in this case as "Azzurro Abissale." However, the Lanzador stands out with more oversized air intakes and narrower front lights, akin to the Urus model. The front of the car adopts a design that blends boldness and uniqueness, as the front windshield extends upward above the front axle in a distinctive manner.
The rear pointed lighting elements on the Asterion have shifted now to be six red ovals, offering a differentiated rear light signature compared to the angled Revuelto arrangement. The Lanzador also appears to sit and ride slightly higher, with a high cabin floor due to the packaging of the sled-like battery pack chassis, making it seem like something of an Urus coupe—though Lamborghini does specify the highest point of the roof measures up to just under 5 feet tall.
The interior of the new Lanzador GT is inspired by various Lamborghini of the past (as well as spaceships), so it's no surprise that the cabin is meant to make the driver feel like a pilot. The EV GT offers a 2+2 layout for up to four passengers, with the rear seats specifically designed to easily accompany inorganic objects like unspecified sporting equipment (think golf clubs). There's also a frunk under the hood, joined by a wide-opening large glass tailgate at the rear, with adjustable rear seats for more cargo capacity.
The cabin dashboard is thin to be lightweight and defined by a Y-shaped motif on the center console. Within the driver's reach is the "pilot unit" for the entertainment and climate controls, automatically retracting screens that disappear in specific dynamic drive modes. Seats, door cards, and the dashboard are covered in Italian-sourced sustainable Merino wool with recycled colour-contrasted threaded stitching. At the same time, the seating foam is made from 3D-printed recycled fibres, and there's available Italian-sourced sustainable leather. Structural carbon accents inside are developed with a two-layer regenerated carbon composite material, according to Lamborghini.
More Control Specifics of the vehicle's various hardware and software elements are pretty vague, but there are a few things to note. Lamborghini will expand its sensor suite for its Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata (LDVI) driving dynamics control system. It promises to offer customers even more customization over the vehicle's relationship with the road, improving vehicle feedback between the driver. New sensors are mounted behind glass panels at the front of the car.
A system of intelligent aerodynamic hardware will provide the Lanzador with improved downforce in corners, reduced air resistance at top speeds, or optimized conditions for maximum range; a complex aero cooling system up front is concealed behind a front air shutter and movable splitter. An active suspension system will offer driver adjustment from controls on the steering wheel.

- The price hasn't been announced, but their latest hybrid model, the Revuelto, starts at around $890,000.
Coming In 2028 Unlike the vague notion of the Asterion hybrid back in 2015 that only teased reality, Lamborghini is confident this time that the Lanzador concept will come to production in 2028, as per the press release. "For us, the fourth model is the logical extension of the existing portfolio—the perfect link between Urus and our super sports cars," says CEO Stephan Winkelmann. It'll be built in the company's Sant'Agata Bolognese facility, which will be expanded for Lanzador production over the next few years. As for final specs, we'll have to wait until closer to that date, as EV technology will likely rapidly transform in capability in the Lanzador's favour over the next four years.
