Lamborghini has officially unveiled the newest flagship supercar - Revuelto, which is a replacement for its predecessor, the Aventador. The Revuelto is the first plug-in hybrid car as part of the company's plans to offer plug-in hybrid versions of all its cars by late 2024. It houses a naturally aspirated 6.5-litre V12 engine that is the most powerful engine the sports carmaker has ever made. This coupled with three electric motors is good enough to produce a maximum power output of 1000bhp. Besides, the brand goes further by providing access to its 13 driving modes, including three hybrid modes named Recharge, Hybrid, and Performance. Now, the Revuelto driver can choose a new mode - City or Citta, for driving in urban areas with densely packed traffic.

By the way, the Lamborghini Revuelto is the company's sixth all-new series production V12 flagship, following the Miura, the Countach, the Diablo, the Murcielago, and the Aventador. 

Lamborghini Revuelto: Powertrain details

Powering the Revuelto is a brand-new 6.5-litre naturally aspirated V12 engine that churns out 825bhp of maximum power at 9,250rpm and 725Nm of peak torque at 6,750rpm. Weighing only 218kg, it is the lightest and most powerful 12-cylinder engine by the carmaker. Alongside the engine, the Revuelto comes with a plug-in hybrid system, consisting of three electric motors and a 3.8kWh lithium-ion battery pack. 

When combined with electric motors, the V12 hybrid-powered Aventador successor can deliver a total power output of around 1000bhp. While we are on the subject, the Revuelto uses three electric motors - two on the front axle and one over the gearbox. For transmission duties, the hybrid powertrain is mated to an 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox, which is mounted transversely behind the V12 engine. This was not the case with the Aventador.

The new Revuelto is claimed to accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in just 2.5 seconds and has a top speed of over 350km/h. 

Lamborghini Revuelto: Chassis and Exterior

Codenamed LB744, the Revuelto is built on a new chassis, which is called the 'monofuselage'. This is an all-carbon monocoque chassis and features a carbon-fibre front structure that includes the front-impact structures. According to the company, this is a significant step forward in terms of torsional rigidity, lightweight qualities, and driving dynamics of the supercar. 

Furthermore, the new chassis is 10 per cent lighter than the Aventador's chassis, and the front frame weighs 20 percent lighter than the Revuelto's predecessor. Its high-strength aluminium, which makes up the rear chassis, further saves weight, reduces the number of welding lines, and increases rigidity, as confirmed by the company.  

Design-wise, the Revuelto is sharp and edgy. It sports Y-shaped elements such as LED daytime running lights, tail lights, hexagonal-shaped exhaust ports, and side body panels. Moreover, the rear air intakes and the wheels also come with Y-shaped design features.  

Lamborghini Revuelto: Interior, Features

Speaking of its interior, the Revuelto is bigger and wider with 26mm more headroom and 84mm more legroom than the Aventador. The supercar comes with an 8.4-inch vertical touchscreen in the centre. In addition, there is a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel display and a 9.1-inch display for the passenger. Unlike the Aventador, it gets new storage areas like a slot for a phone charger and Porsche-styled cupholders. The Revuelto has upholstery that combines leather with a new Corsa-Tex fabric in Dinamica microfibre.

The steering wheel features 4 knobs that the car owner can use for selecting 13 driving modes. It is the company's first car to get ADAS technology that includes adaptive cruise control, lane departure, traffic warnings, and more. It also has Amazon's Alexa along with what3words navigation.

In terms of safety, the Revuelto comes equipped with the latest-generation carbon ceramic brakes with 10-piston front calipers and 4-piston rear calipers and airbags at the front and side.
