The Lamborghini Revuelto Debut

I wanted to start by immediately informing you of something important regarding this vehicle.
Revuelto, translated from Spanish to English means “scrambled”. You know you like it already.

Ok, so that is the translation in Spanish, but in actual fact and in typical Lamborghini tradition, Revuelto is the name of Spanish fighting bull from the 1880s, and known to be particularly ferocious one at that. Earning a legendary status as a wild fighting bull that jumped into the alley eight times during it’s “career”.

The Lambo Scrambled is the newest big and boisterous supercar from Lamborghini. The fundamental part of the Lamborghini brand. It has a modern appearance, with technology and materials to match.

Let’s not waste any time and start with the technology part.

The Revuelto is Lamborghini’s first plug-in hybrid, or more specifically a HPEV (High-Performance Electrified Vehicle). Combining an all-new 6.5L V12 with three HPDMs (High-Density Electric Motors), which are low-speed, high-torque motors and are often lighter and smaller than conventional electric motors. Combining these motors with the V12 engine generates a power output of 1001bhp, which means it can achieve a top speed of 217 mph and 0-62 mph in 2.5 seconds. Supercar stats ticked off.

The powertrain is paired with a transverse-mounted dual-clutch e-gearbox. Which is a rather unconventional layout for a Lamborghini, but is necessary to keep all the new technology tightly packaged and the centre of gravity towards the middle. Where it should be.

Sounds like a great recipe so far, but Lamborghini’s are much more than a great powertrain package.

The aesthetics are just as important as anything else when it comes to any “exotic” supercar. They belong on posters, the wallpaper of your computer, and in your dreams. It needs to look striking and as a Lamborghini, capture the essence of the rampant bull.

The Revuelto fits the V12 evolution from the original Countach through to the Aventador. The silhouette and sharp lines are unmistakably Lamborghini.

The lines and shapes of the Revuelto give it a more futuristic feel. It has the appearance of being a nimbler car. Especially considering that it is a particularly wide car, (although marginally narrower than the Aventador).

There is no denying it’s an exciting car to look at. But it seems to have grown up. It doesn’t have the same silly puppy-dog energy the Aventador did – it was big and bold and had its imperfections. I’m now accepting that, because the Revuelto means business. It has the sophistication and performance credentials to match. The Aventador didn’t have a dual-clutch transmission, carbon fibre monocoque chassis or multi-link double wishbone suspension set up like the Revuelto does.

Designed to feel like you are in the cockpit, the inside of the Revuelto is preparing you for warp speed. The fighter pilot switches we are already familiar with, however, the buttons on the steering wheel and the sci-fi graphics on the vertical instrument display are new.

Home to the main driving functions, the steering wheel is busier but not overly complicated.
With the addition of new technology and every automaker these days wanting less on the dashboard and the centre console, most of the buttons have been moved onto the centre touchscreen display. The idea is to keep it tidy and allow the driver to stay focussed on the driving. But for me personally, I often find it more distracting. Plus, many will agree that buttons and switches are simply more fun.

My expectations: Challenged, but exceeded.

The recipe makes perfect sense. Using the hybrid system to their advantage, Lamborghini was able to keep the V12. The carbon fibre monocoque chassis allowed them to shave off a chunk of weight, some of which will offset the extra kilograms added from the hybrid system. Lamborghini used their technological advancements to improve the product while maintaining the V12 supercar formula.

When I first started planning this article, I didn’t think much of the Revuelto aesthetics but appreciated the engineering, which appears to be a step further than I had expected from Lamborghini in 2023.

My opinion on the looks changed after seeing it in the flesh and spending a little time playing around on the online configurator. Although it’s not particularly pretty, it’s still a remarkable thing to behold. It looks exactly how a Lamborghini should. It does appear a bit more grown-up than its predecessor, with its sharp lines and distinctive lighting. But most importantly, it has stayed true to the Lamborghini silhouette.

My personal favourite area of the car – the rear. With its futuristic fighter jet energy; the vents around the engine, the dual high-set exhaust and the active rear wing. All things from my childhood dreams.

Moving around to the front (initially the area I wasn’t completely sold on), at first glance, I thought it had a weird face. It’s missing something in the middle at the front, like a snake with an overbite.

And then I got to playing around on the online configurator, I fixed it. Adding the “Body Colour” style package fills a gap in the middle with some colour to bring it together. This was the final piece of the puzzle for me that completed the aesthetics of the Revuelto. Finally, it made me consider buying one with my own imaginary money.

This is just a glimpse into the Revuelto fundamentals. This super sport Lamborghini is a step up from its predecessor which I’ve grown to like a lot in such a short space of time. I’m looking forward to seeing a Revuelto in motion for myself in the near future.

All that is left to say is a quick thank you to the Dilawri Group for having me at the Lamborghini Vancouver unveiling.
