Hybrid electric supercars are all the rage but Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann isn't convinced they're perfect.

Speaking to Car Advice, Winkelmann said "What you see now – and I don’t want to be, let’s say, finger pointing – but what you see now in the world of the hybrids is not something which is going to be in normal production cars; due to cost, or due to weight if the cost is a normal one." Winkelmann went on to say hybrid performance cars are a compromise because they either have a high price or heavy batteries which make them a "sitting duck."

Winkelmann didn't rule out the possibility of hybrids in the future but said "as long as it’s possible – in terms of technology – we’ll keep the DNA [of naturally aspirated engines.]" However, Lamborghini is always looking towards the future and is open to everything from naturally aspirated engines to turbocharged plug-in hybrids. Winkelmann even bought up the possibility of an electric vehicle but said customers aren't even expecting them a decade from now.
