All-New Lamborghini Revuelto

PHEV Aventador replacement gets 1000bhp

The much-anticipated Aventador replacement has arrived in the form of the all-new Revuelto, the Italian brands first move into the electric era, teaming three electric motors to a mighty 6.5-litre V12, which in itself was a battle to keep hold of given the downsizing and turbocharging of the modern age.

The Revuelto’s circa 1000bhp combines the most powerful V12 in Lamborghinis history providing 814bhp and 725Nm of torque, mounted at the rear and turned 180 degrees and made 17kg lighter than the Aventadors V12, this is coupled by a trio of electric motors, one incorporated into the all-new eight-speed dual-clutch gearbox and a duo at the front powering each wheel.

The power of the new Lamborghini flagship therefore delivers some astonishing performance figures, 0-60mph is dealt with in 2.5 seconds, 0-124mph in sub-7.0 seconds and on to a top speed of more than 217mph.


The much lighter 70kg battery pack on the new Revuelto supplies a humble 3.8 kWh of charge which is good for only 6 miles of electric-only range. However the V12 can directly boost the battery pack through the rear motor, in a claimed six minutes.

The Revuelto will only reverse under electrical power, like the Lamborghini Sian and Countach LPI 800-4.

Even though this is the replacement for the Aventador the Revuelto will be heavier (thanks to the bulk of the hybrid system) weight saving measures have been introduced, the new car’s carbon fibre tub is lighter and 40 percent tauter than the last generation, and features a road car first in a composite front crash structure.

Underneath, conventional strings and twin wishbones replace the pushrod suspension from the Aventador, and improvements in damper technology have allowed equal performance from conventional mountings. Bridgestone has developed bespoke new Potenza Sport rubber for the car surrounding a rim choice of 20-inch and 21-inch front and rear or 21-inch and 22-inch front and rear. The brakes are new generation carbon ceramic, 410mm diameter at the front with 10 pistons, 390mm at the rear with four pistons. Under braking, the e-axle and rear e-motor contribute to the stopping process, allowing the friction brakes to recharge the battery more effectively.

The Revuelto also gets standard rear-axle steering plus active aerodynamic elements.

Design for the new car draws a lot of inspiration from the Sian and Countach, more Sian though with the DRL’s at the front and highly placed exhausts at the back, the trademark ‘wedgy’ shape is reminiscent to the Countach.

The side silhouette is outlined by vast arrow shaped air intakes behind the doors, accompanied by a new channel above. A new deployable spoiler helps keep the profile clean along with a view of the V12 from a carbon fibre rear hood.

The interior gets much more added tech and space over its predecessor, the Revuelto getting a portrait placed 8.4-inch central touchscreen in addition to its digital cluster and a reconfigurable letterbox shaped 9.1-inch display screen in front of the passenger.

Most of the driving controls are integrated on a new steering wheel with the ‘drive mode’ button on the top left of the spar, with an EV button on the right.

The first two years of the production Revuelto are already sold without an asking price being confirmed, but expect well over £300,000.
