Automobili Lamborghini has unveiled a new cutting-edge, aeronautics-inspired chassis, called the “monofuselage”, which combines a multi-technology carbon fibre monocoque with a forward structure composed of Forged Composites, short carbon fibres soaked in resin, in the design of its upcoming hybrid plug-in V12 High Performance Electrified Vehicle (HPEV). The monofuselage chassis is the first of its kind to feature a 100% carbon fibre front structure, including cone structures for superior energy absorption, which boasts an energy absorption rate twice that of the Aventador Ultimae’s aluminium front frame, and is 10% lighter than the Aventador and 20% lighter than its aluminium counterpart. The torsional stiffness has been improved by 25%, with a value of 40,000 Nm/°, guaranteeing best-in-class dynamic capabilities. The rear chassis is constructed using high-strength aluminium alloys, and two crucial hollow castings in the rear dome area seamlessly integrate the rear suspension’s shock towers and powertrain suspension into a single component with a closed inertia profile. This design not only reduces weight but also increases rigidity and substantially reduces the number of welding lines. Lamborghini first patented and utilised Forged Composites in 2008 but the LB744 marks the first time it has played a starring role in the architecture of one of its vehicles. The upcoming LB744 is the world’s first hybrid V12 HPEV, and the monofuselage chassis is an impressive achievement in Lamborghini’s storied history of trailblazing innovation, cementing its status as a global leader in the race to redefine the future of high-performance automobiles.
