The Lamborghini Revuelto Is (No Kidding) a V12 Plugin Hybrid

If you thought the Lamborghini Urus was bucking convention for purists, the Lamborghini Revuelto PHEV/HPEV says, “hold my martini.”

According to the automaker, the Lamborghini Revuelto is the first super sports V12 hybrid HPEV (High Performance Electrified Vehicle). It has all-wheel drive (AWD), a newly developed V12 connected to a eight-speed dual clutch transmission. All of that is connected to three electric motors. The end results are impressive; top speed exceeds 217 mph (350 kph) and it will go from 0 to 100 kph in 2.5-seconds. The 6.5-liter V12 weighs 17 kilograms less than the Aventador’s engine, and has been rotated 180-degrees as well.

Lamborghini says it will produce over 1,000 horsepower (1,015 CV) combined. It will make 725 NM at 6,750 rpm.

The Lamborghini Revuelto has a 4,500 W (4.5 kWh) battery, with an overall overall capacity of 3.8 kWh, and is capable of driving in an all-electric mode. The lithium ion battery is housed within the transmission tunnel within the central part of the chassis. Two electric motors power the front wheels, with the third electric motor stacked up with the eight-speed transmission. The front wheels can supply torque independently, and all three electric motors can engage in all EV mode.

The Lamborghini Revuelto is an all-new direction for the automaker

“The new Revuelto is a milestone in the history of Lamborghini, and an important pillar in our Direzione Cor Tauri electrification strategy. It is a unique and innovative car but at the same time faithful to our DNA: the V12 is an iconic symbol of our super sports heritage and history. Revuelto was born to break the mold, combining a new 12-cylinder engine with hybrid technology, creating the perfect balance between delivering the emotion that our clients want with the necessity to reduce emissions.”

Stephan Winkelmann, Lamborghini Chairman and CEO

Current MPG/MPGe numbers and range estimates are not available yet. Although, it is expected to be the most efficient/cleanest Lamborghini to date. When the charge drops down to zero, the battery can be recharged using both ordinary domestic alternating and charging column current up to 7 kW in power. Lamborghini says it completely recharges in 30 minutes. It can also be recharged under regenerative braking from the front wheels, or directly from the V12 engine in just six minutes.

Despite its greener aspirations, the new V12 will still have a screaming redline of 9,500 rpm.

There’s a ton of technical information about the Revuelto out there, and we hope to see one up close soon.
