Or it could not develop something at all like this car. Lambo CEO Stephan Winkelmann initially claimed that his company would not be building the Asterion, but his lieutenants, later on, backpedaled on that declaration. In either case, expect to see the hybrid system in production. RAndD chief Maurizio Reggiani has stated that a hybrid is his desired alternative to engines with turbos or much fewer cylinders.
