Lamborghini has officially taken the wraps off its newest flagship supercar. It’s called the Revuelto, and it replaces the legendary Aventador.
So this is it! The most anticipated supercar of 2023 is finally here. At first glance, it may look like yet another iteration of the Aventador. However, under the skin, it features a brand-new all-carbon monocoque. Lamborghini calls it “monofuselage” and it’s said to be 10% lighter than the Aventador’s chassis. Torsional stiffness has also gone up by 25%.
The exterior design of the Revuelto takes inspiration from other models like the Sian and Centenario. The front feature’s a more aggressive headlamp graphic with Y-shaped LED signatures. Around the sides, the car gets Z-shaped vents and at the rear, you have twin hexagonal exhaust tips flanked by Y-shaped LED taillights. The Revuelto also gets floating buttresses for the first time and an engine bay that is exposed to the elements.
Step inside, and you are greeted by a modern-looking dashboard featuring an 8.4-inch touchscreen in the centre and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. The car gets Lambo’s next-gen steering wheel with a multitude but switches. Taking a leaf out of Ferrari’s books, Lamborghini now offers a 9.1-inch screen mounted on the passenger side.
The Lamborghini Revuelto is powered by a 6.5-liter V12 hybrid powertrain. It’s an all-new motor that is lighter and more powerful than its predecessor. The ICE alone develops 813 hp @ 9250 rpm and 535 lb-ft of torque.
The engine is mated to an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission along with three electric motors – two on the front axle and the third paired with the gearbox. The combined output is 1001 hp. A 3.8 kWh battery pack is situated in the transmission tunnel between the two seats. It enables the car to run in full EV mode for about 6 miles. This plug-in hybrid supercar offers 13 driving modes in total.
The Lamborghini Revuelto will reach showrooms in the US later this year. Prices will also be revealed at a later date. That being said, we expect the Aventador’s plug-in hybrid replacement to cost upwards of $650,000.
