Lamborghini Revuelto, the first super sports V12 hybrid HPEV, is redefining performance, sportiness and driving pleasure.

There couldn’t have been a better time to present the all-new Revuelto, Lamborghini’s first super sports V12 hybrid plug-in HPEV (High Performance Electrified Vehicle) – in the marque’s 60th anniversary year. Defining a new paradigm, it features an unprecedented new architecture, innovative design, maximumefficiency aerodynamics and more.

The extensive use of carbon fibre and lightweight materials – a new aeronautics-inspired chassis, the ‘monofuselage’ – combined with the potent engine power, delivers acceleration from 0-100km/h in only 2.5 seconds and a top speed of more than 350km/h. Thanks to the introduction of electric torque vectoring and four-wheel drive available also in fully-electric drive mode, the super sports car expresses its amplified qualities both on track and in daily driving.

The Revuelto exhibits a design inspired by aerospace elements, such as the side fins, located behind the front wheel arches, that channel the airflow along the flanks. And the pronounced concavities of the doors, to the side air intakes. The roof combines more headroom with aesthetic qualities and specific aerodynamic functions.

An immersive, shared driving experience awaits where pilot and co-pilot can simultaneously view the same information on the displays. The new swipe function facilitates moving applications and information from the central display to those on the side; all three digital screens implement new features that allow the driver to fully concentrate, just as in a race car. Four hundred bodywork colours are offered together with many more customisation options, allowing the creation of an entirely individual super sports car.

Go for a balanced mix of leather and Corsa-Tex, or one material, with 70 colour options. The new L545 engine has a capacity of 6.5 litres and is the lightest and most powerful 12-cylinder ever made by Lamborghini. Complemented by three electric motors, it’s powered by a lithiumion battery. The motors boost performance at low revs but can also turn the Revuelto into a purely electric car. The superquadro V12 puts out 813hp at 9,250 revs per minute while maximum torque is 725Nm at 6,750rpm. Particular attention has been lavished on the ‘soundtrack’: melodious at low revs and then rising to a natural harmonious crescendo.

The navigation system is entirely redesigned and developed, with maps downloaded in real-time, information on weather and other points of interest including parking spaces and charging point availability. Further, the Revuelto is connected to a growing number of extra applications for a more personalised experience Offering maximum security, Revuelto sees Lamborghini implementing a complete Advanced Driver Assistance System for the first time, which includes advanced functions. The package comprises active lane departure warning, lane change warning and adaptive cruise control; rear cross-traffic alert facilitates easy maneuvering. ✤
