Lamborghini has kick-started its electrified era, and its first-ever series-production hybrid model, called the Revuelto, is now here in Malaysia. While it is a plug-in hybrid, the Italian supercar maker instead prefers to call it a “HPEV”, or high performance electrified vehicle. Here’s why.
Unlike most PHEVs, the Lamborghini Revuelto’s main goals for electrification isn’t to save trees (even though it does reduce CO2 emissions), but instead to help the 6.5-litre naturally-aspirated V12 engine make even more power.
With three electric motors, the all-new Lamborghini Revuelto makes a whopping 1,015 hp combined, and can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in under 2.5 seconds, onward to a top speed of over 350 km/h. In other words, it’s the most powerful Lamborghini ever made.
As for looks, the Lamborghini Revuelto manages to look both brand-new and familiar at the same time, thanks to its signature wedge-shaped silhouette, mixed with a modern design language inspired by the limited-run Lamborghini Sian FKP 37.
Inside, apart from its modernised styling, Lamborghini has focused on making the Revuelto a much better car to live in day-to-day. Headroom and elbow space have both been significantly improved, and there’s now even stowage areas and cupholders inside the cabin.
The Lamborghini Revuelto in Malaysia is priced from RM2.5 million before taxes, duties, and options, rising up to some RM6.9 million if you include taxes.
