LAMBORGHINI REVUELTO: THE ITALIAN BRAND'S NEW HYBRID SUPERSPORT
After a decade in the Italian firm's catalogue, the Aventador now has a successor: the Lamborghini Revuelto. The Revuelto is a two-seater hybrid HPEV (High Performance Electrified Vehicle) packed with new technologies.
With its supercar, the manufacturer has set a new benchmark in terms of driving pleasure, on-board technology and performance. Like its competitors (McLaren and Ferrari, for example), it wants to make its contribution to reducing CO2 emissions. The Lamborghini Revuelto, its sixth supersports car, is part of its major electrification drive. It weighs in at 1,776kg, 226kg more than the Aventador Ultimae. It has a top speed of 350 km/h and goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.5 seconds. The 250 km/h mark is reached in 7 seconds.
For the first time, a plug-in hybrid engine
The Lamborghini Revuelto is uncomplicated and spectacular. It has the potential to make a lasting impression, thanks to its plug-in hybrid engine. Its legendary naturally aspirated V12 engine has been upgraded: this 6.5-litre engine develops a maximum torque of 725 Nm and 825 horsepower at 9,500 rpm (without using a turbo mode).
The Revuelto also features three electric motors of 150 hp (110 kW) each, one in the rear axle (specifically in the transmission tunnel) and a pair in the front axle. The lithium-ion battery provides 3.8 kWh of power and a range of 10 to 20 km. It is recharged while driving with the V12 (6 minutes) or via a 220-volt socket (30 minutes).
The battery and engine reduce the Revuelto's CO2 emissions by 30 percent compared to the Aventador. They deliver 1,015 horsepower. That's enough to take driving emotions to the next level.
LAMBORGHINI REVUELTO: WHEN THUNDER MEETS LIGHT
FINALLY MEETS THE LIGHT
The Bologna-based manufacturer has taken the step of electrification to enhance the performance of its hypersports car.
AN ICONIC AND AERODYNAMIC 'Y' DESIGN
In profile, the Lamborghini Revuelto appears to be an aesthetic evolution of the Aventador. Its sloping front structure is reminiscent of the Murcielago, while the angular silhouette is a legacy of the Diablo's rear. While the smooth negative spokes and sculpted lines create a high-tech look, the supercar's design follows the iconic centreline. For the new car, the manufacturer has taken a lot of inspiration from aviation. The driver and passenger play the roles of pilot and co-pilot respectively.
The design is aggressive: hexagonal motifs on the exhaust outlets, a recessed roof with double bosses, side wings behind the tyres, elytra-shaped doors, Y-shaped headlights, etc. The whole thing is made of carbon fibre, except for the doors. The body rests on 21-inch wheels at the rear and 20-inch wheels at the front. The V12 is visible at the rear of the supercar, through a window.
A COMFORTABLE AND FUTURISTIC INTERIOR
The Revuelto's interior is a faithful representation of the "Feel like a pilot" concept: a driver-centric approach, symmetrical curves and simplistic volumes. While the original frame creates a seamless connection between the driver and the car, the exclusive hexagonal components emphasise the car's functionality.
The supersports car is environmentally friendly. The upholstery is a mixture of microfibre and leather. Apart from the steering wheel buttons, the start button and the gearshift, the vehicle has no physical controls.
The cockpit consists of a Y-shaped instrument panel and 3 touch screens:
for the driver: a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel and an 8.4-inch vertical central screen (this includes the supercar's controls)
for the passenger: a 9.1-inch screen (which includes the driving data).
While the driver concentrates on driving (using the 13 available modes), the passenger manages the music, navigation, air conditioning, etc.
