Lamborghini Revuelto unveiled – Hybrid V12 Aventador successor, 0-100km/h in 2.5 secs

Lamborghini has finally unveiled the Lamborghini Revuelto, the successor to the Aventador. It is the brand’s first plug-in hybrid, and it is powered by a V12 engine and three electric motors. According to the Lamborghini CEO, Stephan Winkelmann, the Revuelto “is a milestone in the history of Lamborghini, and an important pillar in our [Lamborghini’s] Direzione Cor Tauri electrification strategy”.

Though the powertrain is its main highlight, let us first take a gander at the Lamborghini Revuelto’s design. The front end strikes an uncanny resemblance to the Lamborghini Sián, and rightfully so as the Sián was the brand’s first hybrid high-performance model, albeit with a mild hybrid (MHEV) powertrain. The Revuelto is a Plug-in hybrid EV (PHEV).

Lamborghini says that the Revuelto’s styling links back to all of the brand’s previous V12-powered models. Like its V12 predecessors, the Revuelto sports scissor doors just to live up to the craziness of it all. Traces of the Countach, Diablo, and Murcielago are evident in the Revuelto. Wheel sizes can either be 20 inches in front and 21 inches at the rear or 21 inches in front and 22 inches at the rear. The Revuelto comes with a set of Bridgestone Potenza Sport tyres.

Lamborghini Head of Design, Mitja Borkert said, “The Revuelto is adrenaline made visible. The design of the new Lamborghini Revuelto opens a fascinating door towards the future of our unique design language. From first sight, Revuelto is an intriguing next-generation Lamborghini V12, with all lines embracing the monocoque and celebrating a free view towards the V12 HPEV powertrain. The unique and recognizable Y-shape light signature is significant in this new era of our most iconic flagship car.”

Powering the Lamborghini Revuelto is the PHEV V12 system that has been teased previously. The PHEV system consists of a naturally aspirated 6.5-litre V12 engine, two axial flux electric motors for each front wheel, and a third electric motor for the rear wheels. The system outputs a combined power figure of 1,015 hp (metric). As for torque, the V12 engine itself produces 725 Nm at 6,750 rpm. Each front axial flux electric motor provides 350 Nm. Paired with an 8-speed DCT, the drive system launches the Revuelto from 0 to 100 km/h in only 2.5 seconds.

The Revuelto can be driven in all-wheel drive mode even with pure electric power only. It can also be front-wheel drive (FWD) only with the two front axial flux motors. The Revuelto has 13 driving modes including the new electric 4WD mode mentioned earlier. Hybrid driving modes include Recharge, Hybrid and Performance, to be combined with the Città (City), Strada, Sport and Corsa modes.

Inside, the Lamborghini Revuelto is equipped with a completely new Human Machine Interface (HMI) system consisting of three displays: a 12.3-inch instrument cluster, 8.4-inch central display, and in addition a 9.1-inch display. The system has a fresh look and feel, with 3D graphics, animations, widgets and styling.

The new Revuelto infotainment system offers new functions that allow personalization and customization to create an authentic, immersive Lamborghini experience. Using a two-finger swipe, owners can move infotainment content either to the instrument cluster or to the passenger display. Using a similar gesture, the owner can memorize favorite features, so they are just a touch away.
