What better way to mark your 60th year than to drop a new halo supercar that showcases all the latest advancements in automotive technology, including cutting-edge hybrid capabilities. Say hello to the Lamborghini Revuelto.
Revuelto in Spanish translates to scrambled, or mixed together, which fits perfectly when you consider there’s a 6.5-litre V12 under the hood, that just happens to be married to three electric motors.
One of those connects to the gearbox, with two more banked at the front for each front wheel, and rated at 3.8kwh. The gearbox has been upgraded to a dual clutch eight-speed and there’s up to 13 different driving modes at your disposal.
The four main ones include Strada, Sport and Corsa, as well as a city mode known as Citta. In the latter, the electric motors will do most of the work, with reduced power (110kW), with the V12 only working to charge the batteries.
The EV settings are Recharge, Hybrid, and Performance. While the new V12 pumps out 607kW of power and 725Nm of torque, hitting full hybrid go fast mode blows that out to a staggering 736kW. That’ll get you to 100km/h in 2.5 seconds.
Lamborghini has been tactical in getting the overall weight down as much as possible too, with a lighter engine, a new carbon fibre mono-fuselage and the removal of the old all-wheel drive system.
There are bigger anti-roll bars, while the four-wheel steering system remains. Active aero at the front and rear maximise traction, and there are design nods to the Sian and Huracan everywhere.
It all works together to give the new Revuelto 66 per cent more downforce, which when paired with alterations to the front wheel track, virtually eliminates understeer. The interior scores a higher centre tunnel, and more arm room on the doors.
A new infotainment system and digital cluster feature, along with a screen for the passenger to view driving stats or manage settings for the driver. An F1-inspired steering wheel is the highlight though, giving access to drive modes, launch and wing control.
Lamborghini have made extra efforts to ensure cabin materials were sustainably sourced too, allowing them to offer some 70 colour options inside, along with 400 exterior paint schemes.
There’s no word yet on pricing or when it will land down under, but we’ll bring you that news when it comes to hand.
