With Lamborghini entering the world of hybrid-electric supercars, we’re starting to see more and more of the stunning new Revuelto out in the wild. Not the wild wild like the Sterrato, but at exclusive events and at some European racetracks. When news of the replacement of the car became the one to have for those with popular YouTube accounts, the Aventador. When news of the car originally broke ground, fans of the brand (not only the ones who can actually afford a Lamborghini) were quite upset to learn about the hybrid-electric powerplant. To keep the new Revuelto in the hearts of the fans, the men in white coats in the R&D department managed to create a hybrid-electric powerplant that still makes use of that iconic V12. The L545 engine in the Revuelto is a 6.5-litre V12 is a very lightweight thing that manages to tip the scales at a mere 218 kg, which is not much more than my wee little 1.8t powerplant in my Mk4 GTi. That’s properly impressive considering there are 12 cylinders and 4.7 litres more capacity. Even in this lightweight form, the 12-banger is rated at a rather impressive 589 kW with a nice and fat 725 Nm of torque. The electric component added to make it a plug-in hybrid comes in the form of three electric motors, one integrated into the transmission and two linked to the front axles With everything working in unison, the Revuelto churns out a massive 736 kW of power, which means the car has crossed the magical 1,000 horsepower mark. By one horsepower. The Lamborghini of the future can do a 0-100 km/h stint in as little as 2.5 seconds and has a top speed of over 350 km/h. The actual figures related to the efficiency of the engine and the fuel and electric consumption figures are yet to be released because the car hasn’t actually gone on sale yet.
Take a look at the YouTube video that shows off how the new Lamborghini Revuelto will look and perform when it eventually ends up in the hands of customers. The best part for us is that even though there's a host of new plug-in electric technology, the car still has that iconic V12 soundtrack that only a Lamborghini has: Lamborghini Revuelto: thunder meets lightning | Lamborghini
