If you want one of the last pure gasoline-fueled combustion-engine Lamborghini models, you're too late: They’re all spoken for. That's the message from Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann.

In an interview with Germany’s Die Welt newspaper, Winkelmann confirms that the last models with non-electrified internal-combustion engines rolling out of Lamborghini’s Sant’Agata Bolognese factory near Modena in Italy are already sold out.

With no plans of extending production of existing ICE models including the Huracán and Urus, this means potential customers will only be able to purchase new Lamborghini models with electrified drivetrains with plug-in hybrid functionality from now on.

Winkelmann, a former CEO of Audi’s Sport division, offers no further details. However, it has been known since May that all naturally aspirated, 5.2L gasoline V-10 Huracáns planned for production are accounted for. His comments now confirm that production of the twin-turbocharged 4.0L gasoline V-8 Urus has also sold out.

As with the Aventador – production of which ceased in September 2022 – the successor models to Huracán and Urus are both planned to feature plug-in hybrid drivetrains when they arrive next year.

The first Lamborghini PHEV will be the Revuelto, the successor to the Aventador. Revealed in April, its naturally aspirated 6.5L gasoline V-12 combines with three electric motors to produce 987 hp – the most of any series-production Lamborghini ever – for a claimed 0-62 mph (100 km/h) time of 2.5 seconds and top speed “in excess of 217 mph” (349 km/h).

Beyond PHEVs, Winkelman has indicated Lamborghini's first all-electric model will be a 2+2 grand tourer in the mold of the company’s 350 GT. It is tentatively planned for introduction in 2028.
