1000HP Lamborghini Revuelto V12 Hybrid Touches Down


Lamborghini has officially revealed its Aventador replacement in Australia titled the Lamborghini ‘Revuelto’ (priced from AUD$987,000 before on-road costs). This is a plug-in hybrid V12 based on brand-new architecture, sporting 13 drive modes, all-wheel drive, three electric motors, and more than 1000HP. You might’ve heard about the car’s revolutionary eight-speed, double-clutch transverse gearbox and triple electric motor configuration, but we’re also looking at the Revuelto’s exterior and interior design below.

What Powers the Lamborghini Revuelto?

Power: 1015 CV (1000HP), 825 CV @ 9250 via. V12 engine alone.
Torque: 725 Nm @ 6750 rpm.
Acceleration: 0-100km/h in 2.5 seconds.
Top speed: more than 350 km/h.

It starts with a brand new 6.5-litre 12-cylinder internal combustion engine that’s mated to three electric motors and a ground-breaking wet double-clutch gearbox that makes its debut on a V12 Lamborghini (no more single-clutch neck snaps). Interestingly, this gearbox is mounted transversely and placed behind the engine for the first time, making room for lithium-ion batteries inside the transmission tunnel.

The new L545 engine itself is an engineering masterpiece. It’s rotated 180 degrees compared to the Aventador, and while it has a capacity of 6.5 litres, it weighs just 218kg (17kg less than the Aventador unit). The brand hasn’t shared how much the Revuelto weighs, but with a little quick maths thanks to the power-to-weight ratio of 1.75kg per horsepower, we see that the car weighs around 1,780kg (around 250kg more than the Aventador). Not bad at all when you factor in the new battery and electric motors.

It goes further, the engine alone produces more than 800HP and revs to 9500 rpm. Per cylinder outputs are marked at 126HP per litre, the highest output in the history of Lamborghini V12s.

Hybrid System Details

As mentioned, the transmission tunnel now holds the lithium-ion high-power battery pack (4500 W/kg) that’s mounted low to retain the centre of gravity. The battery is connected to the front electric motors, the rear electric motor, and an integrated recharging unit while being protected by a lower structural layer.

This isn’t a typical ‘plug-in hybrid’ like those from the brand’s main competitor. However, you can indeed ‘plug it in’ but the battery itself has a very small overall capacity of just 3.8 kWh so don’t expect much range. In any case, you can recharge the battery using a wall plug or a dedicated AC charger at up to 7 kW, meaning a complete recharge in 30 minutes. Regenerative braking is also possible through the front wheels or the V12 engine itself in 6 minutes.

How Does the Lamborghini Revuelto Look?

Like all modern cars, the Lamborghini Revuelto has been designed in a lab to create perfect aerodynamic balance, however, that hasn’t detracted from the overall look of the car and after seeing the car in person at a recent launch event in Melbourne, we think it’s stunning. The new design is particularly functional and has increased the front aerodynamic load by 33 per cent and the rear by 74 per cent compared to the Aventador Ultimae (under maximum load conditions).

“The Revuelto is adrenaline made visible,” said Mitja Borkert, Lamborghini’s Head of Design. “The design of the new Lamborghini Revuelto opens a fascinating door towards the future of our unique design language. At first sight, Revuelto is an intriguing next-generation Lamborghini V12, with all lines embracing the monocoque and celebrating a free view towards the V12 HPEV powertrain.”

You’ll be glad to hear that the vertically-opening scissor doors remain, derived from the original Lamborghini Countach prototype. Going further, the Lamborghini Revuelto sets its proportions around a single longitudinal line down the side of the vehicle. The muscular front end is clearly a tribute to the Murcielago while the floating blade on the rear fender is all Diablo.

In terms of structural rigidity, the Revuelto’s monofuselage is 10 per cent lighter than the Aventador chassis, and the front frame is 20 per cent lighter than its aluminium predecessor.

At the front of the car, headlamp clusters feature the trademark Y-shape daytime running lights that are framed by aerodynamic blades that connect the splitter to the hood itself. Side fins behind the front wheels channel the airflow along the sides of the car and into the concavities of the doors to the side air intakes, which feature sharp edges that echo the arrows on the front. Finally, the rear of the car features the double hexagonal exhausts carried across from the LB744 prototype alongside an adjustable rear wing.

What’s the Lamborghini Revuelto Like on the Inside?

Continuing the Space Age pilot’s theme, the interior of the Lamborghini Revuelto features a carbon-fibre spaceship design, while the technological heart sits inside an 8.4-inch vertical touchscreen.

In a similar theme to cars like the Porsche Taycan, the Lamborghini Revuelto offers a shared driving experience with a 12.3-inch digital cockpit on the driver’s side and a 9.1-inch display installed on the passenger-side dashboard. A swipe function has been introduced to allow the driver and passenger “co-pilot” to move information from the central display to the side displays like a smartphone.

Space has been improved on the interior, with 26mm more headroom than the Aventador Ultimae for fitting helmets on track. The new monofuselage design offers 84mm more legroom for increased luggage space in the back (including a large golf bag), while the front hood has enough space for two cabin trolleys. Even the passenger gets a cupholder!
