Just before the 60th anniversary of the marque, Lamborghini unveiled Revuelto, the first HPEV (High Performance Electrified Vehicle) hybrid super sports car at a stunning event in Sant’Agata Bolognese. With the Revuelto, Lamborghini has established a new benchmark in performance, on-board technology, and driving pleasure.
The ultimate thrill the Revuelto provides is reached thanks to a powertrain that delivers 1015 CV total, combining the power of a brand-new 12-cylinder internal combustion engine with three high-density electric motors and a groundbreaking transversal dual clutch e-gearbox. The power of hybridization is harnessed to take performance and driving emotions to an unprecedented level.
THE FUTURE IS LUXURY HPEV
Revuelto is not an innovation solely in performance, technical features and company strategies; it has also brought a real revolution in production processes: Manifattura Lamborghini Next Level perfectly expresses the paradigm shift.
‘Sustainability’ defines the car’s interior, reflecting the company’s attention to avoiding waste, which has become the modus operandi of the Lamborghini universe. This includes upholstery materials cut utilizing the latest-generation machinery: this limits waste as much as possible without affecting the craftmanship and embroidery processes, in which ‘hand-made’ continues as a point of excellence within Lamborghini.
The new Revuelto delivers performance figures at the peak of its segment: acceleration from 0-100 km/h in only 2.5 seconds and a top speed of more than 350 km/h. These numbers combine with its exceptional dynamism thanks to the introduction of electric torque vectoring and four-wheel drive available also in fully-electric drive mode, ensuring the Revuelto super sports car expresses its amplified qualities both on track and in daily driving.
“With Revuelto, we take the experience of driving a Lamborghini to a superior level,” said Rouven Mohr, Lamborghini’s Chief Technical Officer. “Revuelto takes a significant step forward in terms of reactivity and responsiveness to ensure the most emotive and natural driving in every environment. Revuelto is a car delivering the highest performance but our objective right from the start was to confirm it at the very summit of driving emotions.”
DESIGNING FOR A BETTER WORLD
Revuelto brings the future of Lamborghini design to the road today. It stays constant to the exclusive Lamborghini design DNA but establishes a new stylistic language. It links with the iconic and legendary Lamborghini V12 cars of the past through the new shape, while the new proportions open the door to the future. While Revuelto delivers a quantum leap in an all-new car design, externally and internally, the inspiration from previous V12 legends is still evident.
Starting with the 1971 Countach prototype and its perfect proportions developed on a single longitudinal line, this car created a pure and essential style contextualized in the Space Age era. It defined the Lamborghini V12 super sports car DNA and introduced one of the most distinctive Lamborghini V12 elements: the vertically-opening scissor doors, which contribute to creating the character of Revuelto.
THE ADRENALINE IS REAL
“The Revuelto is adrenaline made visible,” says Mitja Borkert, Lamborghini’s Head of Design. “The design of the new Lamborghini Revuelto opens a fascinating door towards the future of our unique design language. At first sight, Revuelto is an intriguing next-generation Lamborghini V12, with all lines embracing the monocoque and celebrating an unrestricted view toward the V12 HPEV powertrain.
“The unique and recognizable Y-shape light signature is significant in this new era of our most iconic flagship car, and the interior is a dramatic leap forward in defining the new design direction of Lamborghini. Our philosophy of “feel like a pilot” is vivid and visible in every detail: the driver and passenger are deeply integrated in the very lightweight Y-shape design of the dashboard and center console, replicating the sensations of being in a race car but with a perfect intuitive balance between digital and physical controls.”
The aerospace elements blend harmoniously with an animalistic muscularity starting at the front: the shark-nose section modelling of the broad monolithic carbon-fibre hood conveys a sense of power and speed. The headlamp clusters match this with Y-shape daytime running lights – a distinctive stylistic feature of contemporary Lamborghini design – framed by aerodynamic blades that connect the splitter to the hood itself.
The side fins, located behind the front wheel arches, channel the airflow along the sides and the pronounced concavities of the doors to the side air intakes, which feature sharp edges that echo the arrows on the front.
PERSONALIZATION FOR AN ECO-EDGE
Revuelto is the production Lamborghini model that offers the most potential for personalization. Four hundred bodywork colours are provided with many more personalization options at the client’s disposal, allowing the creation of an entirely individual super sports car. The sustainable sportiness of Revuelto continues beyond the technical specification of the plug-in hybrid: all the paints used are water-based rather than solvent-based.
A MESSAGE FROM ITALY
Ranieri Niccoli, Chief Manufacturing Officer of Automobili Lamborghini, commented: “To manufacture the Revuelto, we understood we had to go above and beyond. It’s a highly customizable hybrid car, yet it’s built using traditional handcrafted skills. We raised the bar to produce it, creating what we call Manifattura Lamborghini Next Level: a production system with people always at its core but which we adapted to deliver a much more complex product and to integrate processes we haven’t used before. With the introduction of the Revuelto, we expanded the area occupied by the company facilities by 172,000-square-meters, investing €150 million in the local area here in Sant’Agata Bolognese.”
