Lamborghini Revuelto: a new hybrid bomb of 1001 horsepower.. Lamborghini Revuelto: a new hybrid bomb of 1001 horsepower. Lamborghini has just unveiled the replacement for its Aventador coupe . Just like this one as well as the Miura, Countach, Diablo and Murcielago that preceded it, the new Revuelto contains a V12. But this is the first time in history that such an engine has been part of a plug-in hybrid system.
No, the manufacturer from Sant’Agata Bolognese, in Italy, is in no hurry to get rid of its famous 6.5-litre naturally aspirated V12. Extensively revised and improved, the latter is teamed with a new eight-speed dual-clutch gearbox and no less than three electric motors.
The Revuelto releases a maximum power of 1,001 horsepower and 887 lb-ft of torque, 535 of which comes from the resounding V12, which is capable of reaching a speed of 9,500 rpm. Although it does a little better than the Ferrari SF90 (986 horsepower), its acceleration time from 0 to 100 km/h is identical, at 2.5 seconds. The top speed would be over 350 km/h.
Electric all-wheel drive.
Naturally, the car needed a new chassis. Lamborghini engineers have designed one that is stiffer and 10% lighter than that of the defunct Aventador. The transmission is placed behind the V12, while one of the three electric motors is integrated into the gearbox. The other two are at the front, each driving a wheel. As you will have understood, the Revuelto has all-wheel drive.
As for the battery, it is housed where the transmission tunnel used to be. Its capacity is very meager, ie 3.8 kWh. The 7 kW on-board charger fills it with electrons in just 30 minutes.
Do you like driving modes? The Revuelto has 13! Of course, one of them allows fully electric driving, but over short distances that are not specified at this time. The sportier ones, Corsa and Performance, transform it into an extremely fiery and expressive beast.
In terms of design, no one will be surprised to learn that the scissor doors are back. The stylists were inspired by the Countach, Diablo and Murcielago for the proportions and part of the design, but taking care to make them evolve in the era of electrification. Purists will appreciate the fact that the V12 remains perfectly visible behind the passenger compartment.
The new “Y” shaped daytime running lights and rear lights are a distinctive element, as are the hexagonal tailpipes. The rear wing is adaptive, to optimize aerodynamics or downforce as needed. Shod with Bridgestone Potenza Sport tires developed especially for the Revuelto, the wheels measure 20 or 21 inches at the front and 21 or 22 inches at the rear.
By the way, the customization options are plentiful, as usual. The exterior color palette alone offers 400 choices. You are not likely to see two similar Revuelto on the road.
As for the interior, the decor and layout reproduce the cockpit of a racing car. Three digital screens dominate the dashboard: 12.3 inches behind the steering wheel, 8.4 inches in the center and 9.1 inches in front of the passenger. The infotainment system has meanwhile been overhauled for a more user-friendly use and similar to a smartphone.
The Lamborghini Revuelto 2024 will soon enter production, but its price and availability in different markets have not yet been specified. Without a doubt, it will cost considerably more than the Aventador, the last version of which was sold in Canada starting at approximately $637,000.
