Italian supercar maker Lamborghini cars has already confirmed it will be launching the Revuelto in India on December 6. The brand’s new flagship, the Revuelto retains the brand’s crazy styling and N/A V12 engine, the latter of which is now future-proofed with a strong-hybrid setup.

In terms of styling, the Lamborghini Revuelto continues the brand’s aggressive styling. It gets Y-shaped LED headlights, DRLs, and taillights. There are new air intakes at the front while the iconic scissor doors have been redesigned to help channel fresh air to the side intakes. At the rear, new high-set dual exhausts allow for cleaner airflow under the car to create more downforce.

Inside, the Revuelto’s interior continues the Y-theme. The dashboard gets an 8.4-inch infotainment system, 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, and a 9.1-inch display for the passenger. Most of the controls are now handled by the infotainment system, with the only physical buttons being the ones on the steering wheel.

Powering the Lamborghini Revuelto is a 6.5-litre, N/A V12 that makes 825 bhp with 725 Nm of peak torque. It is paired with a 3.8 kWh battery pack that powers three electric motors. Combined, the supercar makes a peak power output of 1,015 bhp. Transmission duties are handled by an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.

The side profile may get new door sills and alloy wheels while the rear will likely get a new bumper as well.
