The Lowdown: Lamborghini Revuelto: Sculpted, Strong and Splendid

It was just a matter of time before the world’s most glamorous car became climate friendly. This year, the first hybrid Lamborghini hit the market, making its debut in California, the state that claims 25 percent of the vehicle’s market. Dubbed the Revuelto, the vehicle fuses tradition and modernity by combining the brand’s iconic 12-cylinder engine with the latest hybrid technology. 

“The new Lamborghini Revuelto is perfectly balanced in that it remains faithful to the brand’s essence by delivering the exceptional driving dynamics that our clients have come to expect from Lamborghini products, while reducing emissions,” says Andrea Baldi, Lamborghini Americas Chief Executive Officer. “The iconic V12, complemented by our hybrid technology, produces more than 1,000 horsepower, and creates a visceral thrill for the driver.” 

Baldi describes the Revuelto as a bold, unique vehicle, and a landmark moment in Lamborghini’s storied history.  

“As the first model debuted under Lamborghini’s Direzione Cor Tauri electrification plan, the Revuelto has already achieved landmark status and is desired by our most discerning collectors,” she says.  

The Revuelto features a combination of the brand’s legacy 814-hp 6.5-liter engine with three electric motors to create its exceptional horsepower. Two of the electric motors are located on the front axle, while the third motor is integrated into the eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. The vehicle’s charging port is located inside a front luggage compartment, although the battery can also be reloaded in only six minutes using the rear electric motor as a generator.  

The regular Lamborghini settings of Strada, Sport and Corsa are present in the Revuelto, in addition to Città, the EV-only setting. This setting is only meant to be used for urban driving at low speeds.  

 The Revuelto’s exterior design is true to the Lamborghini brand with a few exceptions. The hood extends to the front, and features hooded headlights, while radar sensors in the shape of spheres add to the ultra-modern look. Behind the doors, large air intakes add a dramatic air. 

 The car’s interior is larger than the company’s previous release, the Aventador, allowing for more headroom, elbow space, storage areas and cupholders. Three display screens are located inside the cabin, with a touchscreen in the center of the dashboard working as the primary user interface. The passenger side also has a display that shows details of the car’s performance while driven.  

The face of the steering wheel is home to the wiper and turn-signal controls, dial controls to manage powertrain modes and chassis, and adjustable aerodynamic- and ride-height settings. The active cruise control is located on a stalk manufactured by Audi. 

In true Lamborghini fashion, the price tag on the Revuelto is not for the faint of heart. Cost begins at $890,000.
