Lamborghini has officially revealed its latest top-of-the-line supercar. It’s named the Revuelto, and it takes the place of the renowned Aventador.
So here it is! The highly anticipated supercar of 2023 has finally arrived. Initially, it might seem like another version of the Aventador. However, beneath the surface, it showcases a brand-new all-carbon monocoque. Lamborghini refers to it as “monofuselage” and it’s claimed to be 10% lighter than the Aventador’s chassis. Torsional rigidity has also been upped by 25%.
The external styling of the Revuelto draws inspiration from other models like the Sian and Centenario. The front showcases a more aggressive headlamp design with Y-shaped LED signatures. Along the sides, the car features Z-shaped vents and at the back, it has twin hexagonal exhaust tips accompanied by Y-shaped LED taillights. The Revuelto also includes floating buttresses for the first time and an engine bay that is exposed to the elements.
Upon entering, you are met with a modern-looking dashboard housing an 8.4-inch touchscreen in the middle and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. The car comes with Lambo’s next-gen steering wheel equipped with a variety of switches. Borrowing a page from Ferrari’s book, Lamborghini now provides a 9.1-inch screen installed on the passenger side.
The Lamborghini Revuelto runs on a 6.5-liter V12 hybrid powertrain. It’s a completely new engine that is lighter and more potent than its forerunner. The internal combustion engine alone generates 813 hp @ 9250 rpm and 535 lb-ft of torque.
The engine is coupled with an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission along with three electric motors – two on the front axle and the third linked with the gearbox. The combined power output totals 1001 hp. A 3.8 kWh battery pack is positioned in the transmission tunnel between the two seats. It allows the car to operate in full EV mode for approximately 6 miles. This plug-in hybrid supercar offers a total of 13 driving modes.
The Lamborghini Revuelto will hit US showrooms later this year. Prices will be disclosed at a later date. Having said that, we anticipate the Aventador’s plug-in hybrid successor to be priced at or above $650,000.
