Lamborghini Revuelto, the brand’s new flagship with hybrid engine

The Lamborghini Revuelto is the Italian brand’s first hybrid that is not only plug-in but also has a naturally aspirated V12. The Revuelto takes the flag of the Aventador as the flagship car of the brand and maintains a similar style.

As we have already mentioned, under the bodywork is a carbon fiber monocoque. The chassis is 10% lighter and 25% stiffer, and the front subframe is changed from aluminum to carbon fiber. The rear remains metal but is also lighter and stiffer.

Lamborghini Revuelto, an electrifying toro

Of course, the most striking element of the Lamborghini Revuelto is its powertrain, headed by the lightest and most powerful V12 ever produced by the Sant’Agata Bolognese-based brand. With 6.5 liters of displacement, it generates 813 hp at 9,250 rpm and 535 lb-ft, playing a great tune-up to 9,500 rpm. For the first time, and finally, the flagship V12 is mated to a dual-clutch transmission that in turn is complemented by a generator that draws power from a 3.8 kWh battery located in the center tunnel where the transmission was housed in the Aventador.

The battery powers a motor at each front wheel, enabling all-wheel drive with electric torque vectoring.
This means that the Lamborghini Revuelto can operate fully electrically with 177 hp and front-wheel drive. Combining both energies, the total power output is 1,001 hp and 1,051 lb-ft of torque. This is enough for 0-62 mph acceleration in 2.5 seconds and a top speed of more than 217 mph.

The battery can be recharged by the engine or by a regenerative braking system. Speaking of brakes, the Revolver equips carbon ceramic “plus” discs with 10-piston front calipers and four-piston rear calipers.


Back to the chassis, the car features stiffer anti-roll bars and quicker steering. With a weight distribution of 44-56, a weight of 3,907 pounds, semi-active suspension, and larger tires, the car’s agility and grip will be at a higher level.

Moving on to the cabin, it features more head and legroom than the Aventador. At the same time, three screens highlight the sporty interior. The instrument panel uses a 12.3-inch one, in the center is an 8.4-inch one in the middle, and, finally, the passenger gets a narrow 9.1-inch screen. All three screens can share information, with Lamborghini emphasizing the passenger’s role as co-pilot. By operating things like climate functions, navigation, or music selection, the driver can concentrate on driving. And with seven driving configurations with various sub-functions, there are 13 driving modes to choose from.

The infotainment system has Amazon Alexa integration for climate, media, and navigation control. Additionally, the Lamborghini Revuelto equips safety systems such as lane departure, blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise, and rear cross-traffic alert.

Although impressive, the Lamborghini Revuelto cannot be described as spectacular. Aesthetically it does not present anything new and is a mixture of the style of several cars of the brand in recent years. In short, it can be defined as a child of an Aventador and a Sian.
