Patent drawings filed with the Intellectual Property Office have been shared online, possibly giving us our best look yet at the upcoming hybrid hypercar. While the car will break new ground for the Italian automaker in terms of powertrain, it won’t be a massive departure in terms of looks.

These low-resolution patent designs that appeared on several Instagram accounts, including Varix and Wilcoblock, match everything we’ve seen from a number of different prototypes over the last year or so. As such, the Italian supercar has a familiar, if updated, look, with plenty of sharp edges, Y-shaped design cues and tried-and-true mid-engine proportions. Even the engine cover will have louvres that are recognizable, although there will be a gap in the middle that will probably show the engine.

As with the prototypes we’ve seen testing under camouflage on public roads, this design patent has a pair of rather large, hexagonal exhaust ports right in the middle of the rear of the car. While they give the supercar an aggressive demeanor, they’re also a reminder of the fact that it will still be powered by an internal combustion engine, even as Lamborghini tries to keep up with an increasingly electrified automotive industry.

Although it will be powered by a hybrid powertrain, Lamborghini has made a big deal about how important V12 engines were to him. Spy photos previously revealed that the hybridized twelve-cylinder engine will have redline from 8500 rpmwhich should please owners looking for a high Italian soundtrack.

Lamborghini engineers will almost certainly use using electric motors to increase the power levels of this car beyond the Aventador 760 hp (567 kW/770 hp). As a likely competitor to the Ferrari SF90, however, the automaker is expected to get the combined power output very close to four figures.
