Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann recently confirmed the upcoming Urus will have a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine but if you were hoping to see the engine appear in the Huracan or Aventador you're probably out of luck.

In an interview with Autocar, Winkelmann said the company considered using the twin-turbo engine in additional models but eventually dismissed the idea because it conflicts with Lamborghini's philosophy of one car, one engine.  He went on to say "On the supersports cars, we are convinced that the choices we have made with the naturally aspirated engines are still the right ones."

However, Winkelmann conceded future sports cars could eventually have turbocharged engines. As he explained, the company will stick with naturally aspirated V10 and V12 engines as long as nothing better comes along.

The engine's specifications are still under wraps but Lamborghini Research and Development director Maurizio Reggiani has previously said the twin-turbo V8 will be the "most powerful in the class" and is the "best choice" for the Urus as it is light and powerful with lots of low-end torque.

The Urus is slated to go on sale in 2018 and Lamborghini expects to sell about 3,000 units annually.
