After much anticipation, Lamborghini released all the details about its new flagship supercar, the successor to the Aventador and which finally puts the brand on the road to electrification: it’s called the Revuelto, it’s a plug-in hybrid and it promises nothing less. than 1,015 CV, becoming the most powerful Italian supercar with all these features.
The beastly part of this dedication is explained in the first great innovation that this proposal brings to the Revuelto, and it is the continuity of the V12 engine in the Lamborghini catalog, an emblem that has been present in almost all of its cars since 1963.
In fact, a few days ago, the first cordial tribute was the house of Sant’Agata in Bologna, which said goodbye to the examples of mere naphtha with two completed, of course, in this atmospheric block.
Yes, the 6.5-liter V12 and 825 CV Lamborghini Revuelto is accompanied by three electric motors that feed a 3.8 kWh lithium-ion battery that occupies the central tunnel and needs half an hour to recharge for a complete or barely connected six. minutes on the move, with a system of regenerative braking on the front wheels and a contribution to the gasoline log.
With this configuration, the Revuelto reaches 1025 Nm of torque and can move with all-wheel drive, but also allows it to be switched to fully electric mode, reducing the Aventador Ultima’s dioxide emissions by up to 30%.
All this dedication allows Lamborghini to promise acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds and from 0 to 200 km/h in less than 7 seconds, in addition to comfortably exceeding a top speed of 350 km/h.
They combine its design with the characteristic language, angular lines throughout the body, which, except for the sharp edges and the doors, is made of carbon fiber, similar to the monocoque chassis.
In a unique way, the Lamborghini Revuelto presents its engine without any type of cover, in the best style of a motorcycle. Under the third stop light is located – which illuminates you when you break the step – and in front of the edge of the exhaust outlet and mobile boot, suitable for three positions.
Aerodynamics is crucial in a vehicle of these characteristics, and in that sense Lamborghini proudly shows that the Revuelto offers 74% more downforce in the rear area, and 33% more in the front. Part of it is due to the possibilities of that wing, but also the semi-active suspension, among other things.
Inside the story is not much different from what is done outside, and all the technology serves the style that already makes the developer’s brand. Carbon fiber is present on the central dashboard as an 8.4″ touch screen and another 9.1″ is specifically designed for the co-pilot. Again behind the wheel -reminiscent of the Essentia SCV12- the driver receives all the necessary information via a 12.3″ display.
And although the car is not exactly designed for comfort, it is also a little more comfortable than the Aventador Ultima: for its purpose, the Revuelto offers a roof 26 mm higher, and 84 mm more legroom compared to its predecessor.
Lamborghini Ferrari: New edition of Clash of the Titans
Lamborghini has opened a new line with the Revuelto with its archival Ferrari, which has awaited him in this segment of hybrid supercars with the SF90 Stradale, a plug in which can reach 1,000 CV.
The house of Maranello presented this supercar in 2019, although its arrival on European roads and routes suffered the inevitable impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, which affected the supply of parts and extended its times until the following year.
The arrival of the Revuelto in the plug-in arena then deposes the SF90 Stradale in terms of power, but also proves all the capabilities and performance of the combination of the V8 central engine and the two electric motors, which use innovations received from Ferrari. Formula 1, give it a free burning range of 25 kilometers and help you accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds.
