As the automotive industry transitions towards cleaner and greener cars, Lamborghini, one of the most iconic sports car manufacturers, has entered the electric age with its latest supercar - the Lamborghini Revuelto. This 1000bhp PHEV is a testament to Lamborghini's commitment to delivering high-performance vehicles while reducing emissions.
According to Lamborghini's former Chief Technical Officer, Maurizio Reggiani, keeping the V12 engine in the Revuelto was a battle, given the industry's trend towards downsizing and turbocharging. However, Lamborghini managed to win this battle thanks to the support of existing customers and hybridization. The hybrid system of the Lamborghini Revuelto comprises a trio of electric motors, which supplement the 814bhp V12 engine.
The battery pack of the Revuelto sits in the transmission tunnel and stores a modest 3.8kWh of charge, providing an electric-only range of around six miles. The V12 engine can recharge the battery pack through the rear motor, taking just six minutes. Although the charging port is in the front luggage compartment, it is not intended to be plugged in often.
The Lamborghini Revuelto is a plug-in hybrid supercar that delivers staggering performance figures. With a top speed of over 217mph, 2.5 seconds 0-62mph, and sub-7.0 seconds 0-124mph, it is the most powerful Lamborghini ever produced. Due to the bulk of the hybrid system, the Revuelto is heavier than the Aventador, its predecessor. However, weight savings throughout the structure have made the carbon fiber tub 40% stiffer than the last generation's, and it now features a composite front crash structure - a world-first in a road car.
The Lamborghini Revuelto's design draws on many familiar Lamborghini themes and keeps the trademark wedgy proportions that stretch back to the Countach. The interior is more spacious and high-tech than the Lamborghini Aventador's, with a reconfigurable 9.1-inch passenger-side display screen and a portrait-orientated 8.4-inch central touchscreen.
Lamborghini CEO, Stephan Winkelmann, has stated that the first two years of production of the Lamborghini Revuelto are already sold, showing how much the car has been in demand among supercar enthusiasts. The Lamborghini Revuelto perfectly represents what the automotive industry can achieve by combining high-performance cars with sustainable technology. It is an exciting time for the industry and enthusiasts alike, and the Lamborghini Revuelto is the perfect example of what to expect in the future.
