Lamborghini has a fantastic surprise for its 60th anniversary – the all-new Lamborghini Revuelto, their latest flagship supercar. We’ve been eagerly awaiting the successor to the Aventador, but it’s no surprise that it took some time to arrive. You see, in the past 57 years since the iconic Miura, Lamborghini has introduced only five flagship models.

The new Revuelto is expected to be available for sale well into the next decade, and it brings some exciting technological advancements for Lamborghini, particularly its adoption of plug-in hybrid technology. But amidst all the modern features, the car also pays homage to Lamborghini’s legendary V12-engined supercars that have been cherished by enthusiasts for years.

The demand for the Revuelto is already sky-high, with two years’ worth of orders already filled. It’s safe to say that Sant’Agata has another winner on their hands with this new flagship marvel.

Powertrain and Performance of the Lamborghini Revuelto

Production of the Lamborghini Revuelto

The Lamborghini Revuelto is turning heads not just for its stunning design but also for its groundbreaking powertrain.

Under the hood, this Lamborghini car for sale features a powerful 6.5-liter V12 engine, similar to the Aventador, but with enhancements, it produces a whopping 814bhp and 725 Nm of torque, with a higher rev limit of 9,500rpm. This V12 is the most potent one ever used in a Lamborghini.

The Plug-In Hybrid System

The real innovation lies in its plug-in hybrid system. The car has a 3.8kWh battery tucked between the occupants, along the traditional transmission tunnel.

The hybrid setup comprises three electric motors – two on the front axle and one on the rear, giving the Revuelto an all-wheel-drive capability powered by electricity alone. When combined with the V12 engine, the total output is an impressive 1,001bhp.

Redesigned Layout for Ultimate Performance

Lamborghini has made significant changes to the layout of the car to accommodate this hybrid system. The V12 engine has been rotated 180 degrees, and the eight-speed double-clutch transmission has been placed behind the engine.

This new setup allows for a more compact design and improved handling. The gear shift paddles have also been upgraded, enabling continuous downshifting by holding down the left paddle.

This Lamborghini for sale can travel up to six miles on electric power alone, and while the hybrid system offers sustainability benefits, the primary goal of the Revuelto is to use the battery to boost power, providing incredible performance and exceptional handling for a car of its weight.

Aeronautics-Inspired Carbon Fiber Monocoque

The weight distribution is set at 44 percent at the front and 56 percent at the rear, giving the car a well-balanced feel. It features four-wheel steering and a newly-designed aeronautics-inspired carbon fiber monocoque, which is 10% lighter than the Aventador and boasts 25% greater torsional rigidity.

Extreme Braking System

The braking system has also been taken to the extreme, with massive 10-pot calipers on the front carbon ceramic discs and four-pot calipers on the rear. The brake cooling system has been improved by the Lamborghini specialists for even better performance.

Design and Technology of the Lamborghini Revuelto

Striking Design

The Lamborghini Revuelto boasts a captivating design, drawing inspiration from the limited-run Sian and the iconic Countach. With its Y-shaped headlight signature and a sculpted bonnet reminiscent of the Countach, the Revuelto is a sight to behold. Interestingly, the charging cap is cleverly tucked away in the front boot for a seamless look.

Aerodynamic Enhancements

In its initial iteration, the Revuelto features a clean design without prominent splitters or fixed spoilers. However, it includes a scalloped area behind the front wheels to reduce lift and gaping side vents that feed air to the mid-mounted engine.

The distinctive Y-shaped theme continues with the tail lights, and a pair of massive hexagonal exhaust tips complete the rear profile, positioned just below the rear deck to make space for a larger diffuser. The active rear wing works in conjunction with the diffuser to ensure stability at high speeds.

Custom-Built Bridgestone Potenza Sport Tyres

Bridgestone Potenza Sport tyres have been specially crafted for the Lamborghini Revuelto, providing optimal grip and performance. The car offers a choice of rim sizes, ranging from 20-inch and 21-inch for both front and rear to 21-inch and 22-inch for the front and rear combination.

Luxurious and Eco-Friendly Interior

Stepping inside the Revuelto, you’ll find an upgraded interior compared to the Aventador. While Lamborghini believes in a driver-focused experience with minimal screens, the car offers a 12.3-inch screen for the driver, a 9.1-inch display for the passenger, and an 8.4-inch vertical touchscreen in the center.

The seats feature Lamborghini’s new ‘Corsa-Tex’ fabric, crafted from recycled polyester, offering an eco-friendly yet luxurious feel. The fabric can be customized in a vast array of 70 different colors using Lamborghini’s ‘Ad Personum’ customization program.

You can find out more about the car and its features from the professionals at Ultimate Motors – the best place to buy Lamborghini pre-owned cars in Abu Dhabi and Dubai.

Spacious Interior and Functional Design

The Revuelto’s interior offers more space than its predecessor, the Aventador, thanks to the ‘double-bubble’ roofline that not only aids engine air intake but also provides greater headroom (26mm more than the Aventador) and increased legroom (84mm more).

The car impressively accommodates a golf bag-sized object behind the seats and can store two overnight bags in the front boot.

Race-Inspired Steering Wheel and Adaptive Driving Modes

The Revuelto’s steering wheel draws inspiration from the racing world, featuring four rotors that enable the selection of driving modes and the activation of the nose-lift system. With the hybrid system, the car introduces three new driving modes: Recharge, Hybrid, and Performance.

Recharge mode allows battery replenishment while driving for just six minutes. Hybrid mode combines both powertrains, while Performance mode maximizes power delivery and adjusts the e-axle’s torque vectoring system for a sportier driving experience.

Versatile Driving Modes for Every Occasion

In addition to the new driving modes, the Revuelto offers a range of other driving settings: Citta (City), Strada, Sport, and Corsa (the most performance-focused setting).

You can easily select these modes using the two rotor knobs on the steering wheel. Launch control is also available, activated by holding down the button located in the center of the left rotor.

To Conclude

With the arrival of the latest flagship supercar, the Lamborghini Revuelto, the desire for owning one of these magnificent machines has grown stronger than ever. However, the hefty price tag of a brand new Lamborghini might seem like an insurmountable barrier for most of us.

But don’t worry, there’s a fantastic alternative that allows you to experience the thrill of driving a Lamborghini without breaking the bank – a pre-owned Lamborghini!
