Lamborghini Revuelto, the first super sports V12 hybrid plug in HPEV (High Performance Electrified Vehicle).

An output of 1015 CV is delivered from the combined power of an entirely new combustion engine together with three electric motors, alongside a double clutch gearbox that makes its debut on a 12 cylinder Lamborghini for the first time. The powertrain combines high specific power elements: the new 128 CV/liter combustion engine works synergically with two front axial flux motors that deliver an outstanding weight to power ratio, with a radial flux electric motor positioned above the first eight speed double clutch gearbox debuting on a 12 cylinder Lamborghini.
The three electric motors are powered by a lithium ion high specific power (4500 W/kg) battery pack that also supports a fully electric drive mode. Carbon fiber, produced via artisan craftmanship in the Sant’Agata Bolognese factory, is the principal structural element within the new car, used not only in the monofuselage and frame but also in all elements of the bodywork apart from the doors and bumpers. The extensive use of carbon fiber and lightweight materials, combined with the potent engine power, contributes to achieving the best weight to power ratio in the history of Lamborghini: 1,75 kg/CV.
The new Revuelto combines these attributes to deliver performance figures at the peak of its segment: acceleration from 0 100 km/h in only 2,5 seconds; 0 200 km/h in less than 7 seconds; and a top speed of more than 350 km/h. These numbers combine with its exceptional dynamism thanks to the introduction of electric torque vectoring, and four wheel drive available also in fully electric drive mode, ensuring the Revuelto super sports car expresses its amplified qualities both on track and in daily driving.
The Revuelto honors the Lamborghini tradition and ushers in a new era even in its exterior design. While the car’s silhouette follows the iconic single center line, the sharply sculpted lines and smooth negative radiuses create a high tech shape that puts the Revuelto unmistakably in the new generation of Lamborghini supercars. The iconic V12 is celebrated by being on full display in the rear. ■
