Italian automaker Lamborghini recently has revealed its all new Revuelto, the successor to the legendary Aventador. Like the outgoing supercar, the Revuelto is powered by a V12 engine but it is now electrically-assisted. The vehicle carries forward Lamborghini’s tradition of naming their cars after matadors or fighting bulls, with Revuelto the name comes from famous fighting bulls of the 1880s.
Lamborghini Revuelto: Powertrain Details
The biggest talking point of the Lamborghini Revuelto is obviously the new naturally aspirated V12 which is paired to a plug-in hybrid system. The latter comprises three electric motors and a 3.8 kWh battery pack that is placed within the central tunnel. The internal combustion engine, which is the lightest and most powerful motor yet from Lamborghini, itself makes 825 bhp with 725 of peak torque while the motors delivers 190 bhp. Therefore its total combined power output stands at 1,015 bhp. As for the transmission duty, it is carried out by a new 8-speed DCT automatic gearbox.
The supercar has a power-to-weight ratio of 573bhp per tonne, the highest ever for the brand. Lamborghini claims a top speed of over 350 kmph and a 0 to 100 kmph acceleration in just 2.5 seconds.
Lamborghini Revuelto: Exterior Design
The vehicle features a spaceship-looking sharp and edgy design that makes it instantly recognisable as a Lamborghini. The front end offers new Y shaped LED DRLs as well as Y-shaped enclosures for the headlights and air intakes. Its side profile provides trademark Lamborghini scissor doors while new aero fins behind the front wheel arches help in channeling the air down the sides into the massive air intakes ahead of the rear wheel arches. Towards it gets Y-shaped LED tail lights, a pair of high-set hexagonal exhaust pipes, and a semi-exposed engine cover to reveal the V12 in all its glory. It also brings to the table a rear wing that automatically adjusts according to the selected drive mode and speed. The supercar’s design is more aero-efficient with aerodynamic load increased by 33 percent up front and 74 percent towards the rear in comparison to the Aventador Ultimae.
Lamborghini Revuelto: Interior Design and Features
The interior design of the Revuelto also follows the Y design motif, which Lamborghini states is intended to make the driver ‘feel like a pilot’. The cabin is distinctly separated into two with the rather high carbon-fibre central tunnel. The dashboard features an 8.4-inch portrait-oriented infotainment system while the driver gets a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. The co-passenger too is provided with an individual 9.1-inch screen. Like a smartphone, the performance vehicle has a “swipe” feature which allows occupants to move apps and information from the central display to either of the side displays. The infotainment system comes equipped with integrated Amazon Alexa with what3words navigation. In addition, the supercar gets a steering wheel inspired by the limited-edition SCV12. It houses four knobs that handle 13 separate driving modes, rear wing tilt, and the car’s lift system. There are buttons for functions like launch control, turn signals, and more.
Lamborghini Revuelto: Platform
Unlike Ferrari, which usually prefers aluminium construction for its supercars, Lamborghini has long been making cars using carbon-fibre. For the Revuelto, the manufacturer has taken things even further with the introduction of an all-new carbon-fibre fuselage and frame. The front structure is all carbon-fibre which along with providing better energy absorption, also helps in weight reduction. This makes the supecars chassis 25 percent more stiffer while being 10 percent lighter than the Aventador at the same time.
Lamborghini Revuelto: Safety Features
In terms of safety features, it offers front and side airbags while knee airbags come optional for selected markets. It is also the first Lamborghini to get ADAS features like Lane-Departure Warning, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, and Adaptive Cruise Control.
Lamborghini Revuelto: India Launch
Lamborghini is expected to introduce Revuelto in the Indian market by the end of 2023. The brand is one of the few uber-premium automakers to offer its entire lineup in India.
