The super-quick Lamborghini Revuelto will accelerate the Italian supercar brand into the EV era, helped by a plug-in hybrid drivetrain.
The Revuelto combines the most powerful V-12 made by Lamborghini with three electric motors to boost its output to 1,001 hp.
The coupe accelerates from 0-62 mph — 0-96 km/h — in 2.5 seconds, 0.3 seconds quicker than the Aventador it replaces. It has a top speed of more than 218 mph, or 315 km/h.
CEO Stephan Winkelmann said the Revuelto will cost about 500,000 euros (C$736,765) and is “the beginning of a new era for Lamborghini.”
The brand’s product range – the Huracan sports coupe and the Urus SUV – will be hybridized by the end of 2024, Winkelmann said at the coupe’s unveiling here on Wednesday.
Production of the Revuelto will ramp up in the second half and the first deliveries will be by the end of the year, Winkelmann said.
He declined to give volume targets, saying only that the order intake has been very positive, and the first two years of production have been sold.
The Revuelto follows the brand’s tradition of getting its name from a Spanish fighting bull. “Revuelto” is the Spanish word for” unruly.”
