Move over, Aventador! Italian automaker unveiled the long-awaited successor to its long-standing Aventador flagship, its first plug-in hybrid supercar, the 2024 Lamborghini Revuelto. The car’s name “revuelto” is the Spanish matador word for “unruly” but also can refer to a dish of creamy scrambled eggs. The Revuelto’s design, with its low and wide stance, immediately signals its identity as a Lamborghini and is sure to turn heads.
Innovatively, the new car utilizes a carbon fiber tub that is not only lighter than its predecessor but also 40% more rigid. Furthermore, it incorporates a composite front crash structure, which is an unprecedented feature for a road car.
Directly behind the monocoque rests a 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V-12 engine, which delivers a remarkable 813 horsepower at 9,250 revolutions per minute. Additionally, the car is augmented by three electric motors, two of which are situated on the front axle, while the third is integrated into the new eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. By combining the power of the 813-horsepower 6.5-liter V-12 engine with three electric motors, the Revuelto is capable of achieving a maximum combined peak output of 1001 horsepower.
The Revuelto boasts impressive acceleration, Lamborghini claims that it can reach 0-62 mph in a mere 2.5 seconds and achieve a top speed exceeding 217 mph.
Recharging of the battery can be done through a port located inside the front luggage compartment; however, the inconvenient placement of the port implies that it is designed for occasional utilization only.
The interior of the Revuelto has been designed to offer improved practicality and increased space, with the new monofuselage design providing not only more headroom but also significantly more legroom. Moreover, the car is fitted with three screens – a 12.3″ digital dashboard, an 8.4″ center console touchscreen, and a 9.1″ touchscreen for the passenger.
Although the exact price has not been confirmed yet, Lamborghini has announced that the first two years of production for the Revuelto are already sold out, and deliveries will commence later this year.
