(CTN News) – The replacement for the long-running Lamborghini Revuelto Aventador already features a hybridized V-12 powertrain and a carbon-fiber structure. Now that we’ve finished the car, we’re able to show you and tell you its name.
Introducing the 2024 Lamborghini Revuelto.
It is no surprise that Lamborghini Revuelto are often associated with bulls. History reports that Spanish Revueltos fought in the 1880s. The name’s direct translation from Spanish, “scrambled,” also fits this remixed Lamborghini. Additionally, it features a V-12 engine and onboard battery pack in addition to a plug-in hybrid drivetrain.
It has the look of a Lamborghini
Though familiar, the Revuelto’s design is unique. Both Lamborghini’s proportions and stance are trademarks of the manufacturer – they are low, angular, and have visual mass gathered at the rear of the vehicle.
A hood that now runs all the way to the front of the car conceals the hooded headlights, which is a striking new detail.
Mitja Borkert, Lamborghini’s head of design, admits the Panigale superbike made by Lamborghini Revuelto sister brand, Ducati, inspired the detail.
A pair of spherical radar sensors are also displayed at the front to emphasize the Revuelto’s dramatically increased level of technology, as previewed by the limited-run Lamborghini Revuelto Sián from 2021. There are enormous air intakes behind the doors that are accentuated by blade-like details from the side view.
On either side of them, what initially looks like solid bodywork is just a skin that covers massive air channels. The buttresses on Borkert’s car have been described as “aero wings” and are one of his favorite parts.
Performance claims are impressive
As part of the Lamborghini Revuelto, a new mode has been added to the regular settings of Strada, Sport, and Corsa: Città, the EV-only mode designed for urban use at low speeds. In terms of electric-only range, Lamborghini Revuelto states that it will likely be six miles under European testing protocols.
Additionally, it has been learned that the peak power available will vary according to the mode of operation. A Città EV-only mode provides 178 horsepower, a Strada EV-only mode provides 873 horsepower, a Sport EV-only mode provides 895 horsepower, and a Corsa EV-only mode produces 1001 horsepower.
The Revuelto’s core carbon structure is said to be both lighter and stronger than that of the Aventador, and its front differential and propshaft are lighter, but hybridization has increased overall weight. The new dual-clutch gearbox weighs 425 pounds with its integral electric motor, while the central battery pack weighs 154 pounds.
As a result of Lamborghini’s power-to-weight ratio, the total weight is stated to be 3915 pounds, although we do not know whether this is with or without fluids.
Despite the increased mass, the Revuelto will be Lamborghini’s most powerful road car to date and almost certainly its fastest.
It is unlikely that the company’s claim of 2.5 seconds at 60 mph will stand out in a segment where virtually everything now runs below three seconds.
However, the claim that it will be able to accelerate from rest to 124 mph in less than 7.0 seconds is truly astonishing. The Bugatti Chiron takes 6.5 seconds to complete the same benchmark.
Despite the fact that we do not yet have a finalized price for the Revuelto, Lamborghini states that the first two years of production are already fully booked.
