2024 Lamborghini Revuelto
When you think hybrid, you probably don’t think Italian super car. And you certainly don’t think high-performance V12. Well after this Quick Spin, that will certainly change.
This is the 2024 Lamborghini Revuelto, the latest supercar to wear the badge of the bull, and what better place to wring it out than Italy’s Vallelunga Circuit?
The name ‘Revuelto’ is both a callback to a famous fighting bull and translates to “mixed,” or “rebel,”
describing the plug-in hybrid powertrain.
The headlining act is 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12, backed up by three electric motors— one on each front wheel, with the third built into the 8-speed dual-clutch transmission. The 3.8 kWh battery is neatly tucked away in the central tunnel. EV Range? Only about 6 miles, but who’s counting?
Combined, this all-wheel drive system puts down an astounding 1,001 horsepower. The V12 alone outputs 534 lb-ft of torque, while each front motor adds an additional 258. It adds up to 0-to-60 sprints under 2.5 seconds, able to hit a top speed north of 217 miles-per-hour. But it’s more than straight-line performance.
DAVE SCRIVENER: “This car is very nimble, agile, light on its feet and drives much smaller than it actually is. Turn-in is great and very receptive you don’t notice so mucj when the motors kick in to help the V12, it’s a very seamless operation. It’s all made to make the car go as fast as possible at all times and it really works well.”
As powerful as it is light, the Revuelto uses a carbon composite monofuselage chassis, stiffer and lighter than the Aventador. It’s covered by an aggressively efficient design and various active aero elements.
The 2024 Revuelto is an epic rewriting of Lamborghini’s V12 formula, and although the first two production years are already sold, there should be plenty more chances to buy one on the way… if you can muster the $600,000 entrance fee.
