The Lamborghini Revuelto is here. It’s the replacement for the iconic Aventador and, just like most big V12 Lambos, it’s named after a Spanish fighting bull. Sounds cool, but that name does also translate as scrambled eggs.
It may have a strange name, however this is one serious supercar designed to take on the might of the Ferrari SF90. It still has a 6.5-litre V12 engine, insane styling and impressive performance figures.
New Lamborghini Revuelto design
The Lamborghini Aventador was a tough act to follow with its bonkers styling, but the Revuelto is no shrinking violet either. It looks a bit like a ‘greatest hits’ compilation from all the best Lamborghini models from the last two decades.
As you’d expect, it shares the same pointy ‘wedge’ shape of the Aventador. Also similar to the Aventador, as well as every flagship Lamborghini, you get vertically-opening scissor doors.
There are also styling cues from limited-run cars such as the Sian. The three-pointed daytime running lights look as though they’re lifted straight from that car, as do the zig-zag side vents feeding air into the V12 engine.
The wheels are 21-inches at the front and 22-inches at the rear, pretty tame for a mad supercar. You can get 22-inch wheels on the Volvo XC60 these days. The Revuelto also has clever hidden door handles which feed air into the radiators.
The Y-shaped rear lights are akin to the ones found on the limited-edition Centenario, and the shape of the roof looks pretty similar to that car as well. The massive twin exhausts mounted high up on the bumper are unique to the Revuelto, as is the exposed engine.
New Lamborghini Revuelto engine
A lot of supercar makers are downsizing their engines and turning to turbocharging in the pursuit of lower emissions, but that’s not really Lamborghini’s style. As a result, the Revuelto still has a 6.5-litre naturally-aspirated V12 mounted behind the driver.
It may be the same size as the Aventador’s engine, but it’s an all-new unit. It’s 17kg lighter than the old V12, and it’s packing a bigger punch as well. The most powerful Aventador was the Ultimae with 780hp, but the Revuelto has a more rowdy 825hp.
It also has a new dual-clutch automatic gearbox, which should be a vast improvement over the robotised-manual in the Aventador. That car would spin all four wheels when launching, and the gear changes were brutal. This new unit should be much smoother and quicker.
New Lamborghini Revuelto hybrid system
The new Lamborghini Revuelto doesn’t just make do with 825hp, it’s also boosted by three electric motors. That’s right, this new flagship is a hybrid. This is where the Revuelt name starts to make sense, because it also translates to ‘mixed together’. So Lamborghini mixed V12 power, with the instant torque of electric motors.
It has one electric motor on the engine which helps boost power to the rear wheels, and each front wheel also gets its own motor. But how much power does the hybrid system add?
That depends on which driving mode you have it in. You have four to choose from, starting with ‘Città’. This is an electric-only mode for wafting around in the city, so it switches the engine off entirely and limits the electric motors to 180hp.
The V12 will fire up once the battery runs out, and it can fully recharge the 3.8kWh battery in just six minutes.
Then you have ‘Strada’, which fires up the petrol engine to give you 886hp. ‘Sport’ mode cranks it up to 907hp, and then there’s ‘Corsa’.
In Corsa mode you have the full 1,015hp to play with. That’s more power than any Lamborghini ever made, and it’s 15hp more than you get in the Ferrari SF90.
New Lamborghini Revuelto weight
Being a hybrid, the new Revuelto was always destined to be heavier than the Aventador. But Lamborghini has taken plenty of measures to make sure the impact is minimised.
It has an all-new carbon fibre subframe at the front which is 20% lighter than the aluminium frame used in the Aventador. It’s 20% stiffer as well.
Lamborghini hasn’t quoted a weight for the Revuelto, but it has said that it has a power-to-weight ratio of 1.75kg per horsepower. Some quick maths reveals that it should weigh around 1,780kg, so about 250kg more than the Aventador.
New Lamborghini Revuelto performance
Just how quick is the new Lamborghini Revuelto? Well, Lamborghini says it’ll do 0-60mph in 2.5 seconds, and it will accelerate from 0-120mph in less than 7.0-seconds.
That’s almost exactly the same as the Ferrari SF90, although that car will do 0-120mph in 6.7 seconds. The Revuelto has a higher top speed though, topping out at 217mph compared to 211mph in the SF90.
New Lamborghini Revuelto interior
The new Lamborghini Revuelto isn’t just about bonkers performance, it’s supposedly easier to live with as well.
You get 84mm more legroom and 26mm more headroom than you got in the Aventador, so lanky drivers with helmets on should be fine. There’s also space for a few bags under the bonnet, as well as a golf bag behind the seats.
The Revuelto also has a completely overhauled infotainment system, something the Aventador sorely needed. You now have an 8.0-inch central touchscreen and a 12.0-inch digital driver’s display, as well as a small screen in front of the passenger.
There are more than 70 different colour options to choose from, so you’ll almost certainly be able to customise the cabin to suit your tastes. Just be prepared to open your wallet to get it how you want.
How much will the new Lamborghini Revuelto cost?
Lamborghini hasn’t confirmed a price for the new Revuelto just yet, however it has hinted that it could cost around £450,000. That’s more than double the price of an Urus Performante, and around £70,000 more than a Ferrari SF90.
The Revuelto is available to configure now, however buyers are likely to get their cars closer to the end of the year.
