The LB744 from Lamborghini formally has a reputation, and right here it’s – the Lamborghini Revuelto, the electrified successor to the Aventador that made its debut in 2011, the flagship arriving on the Italian marque’s sixtieth anniversary yr.

The Revuelto is the primary series-production V12 mannequin from the Sant’Agata Bolognese supercar maker to characteristic electrification, particularly being a plug-in hybrid; a hybrid V12 supercar has emerged from Lamborghini earlier than, although that was the restricted manufacturing, 63-unit Sián that introduced electrification via a supercapacitor as an alternative of a battery.

The electrical a part of the drivetrain combines with a brand-new inside combustion naturally aspirated 6.5 litre V12 petrol engine that makes 825 PS at 9,250 rpm and 725 Nm of torque at 6,750 rpm. Codenamed L545, the brand new V12 unit with a 9,500 rpm rev restrict replaces the L539 within the Aventador, and has the excellence of being the marque’s strongest 12-cylinder engine but, whereas at 218 kg, can also be its lightest; that is 17 kg lighter than the Aventador’s V12.

Transmission for the Revuelto’s V12 engine is a brand new eight-speed dual-clutch computerized unit, and sees the V12 turned 180 levels relative to the Aventador engine because the Revuelto’s gearbox is now transverse-oriented and positioned behind the engine to make room for the battery pack within the centre tunnel.

Electrical drive within the Revuelto is by a trio of motors – one 150 PS/150 Nm unit appearing on the rear axle and the opposite two on the entrance axle, producing 150 PS and 350 Nm every and in addition offering torque vectoring for the entrance wheels; every of the entrance oil-cooled axial flux motors weigh simply 18.4 kg, based on Lamborghini. All collectively, the whole system output of the Revuelto quantities to 1,015 PS.

Collectively the motors type the electrical all-wheel drivetrain of the Revuelto, and the three.8 kWh battery is a longitudinally-oriented pack of pouch cells that occupy a 550 mm lengthy, 240 mm vast and 301 mm tall house within the aforementioned centre tunnel, made potential by the dearth of a conventional propshaft to the entrance axle as entrance drive right here is absolutely electrical.

The electrical drive battery might be recharged from a charging level at as much as 7 kW, and reaches a full cost from empty in half-hour. Alternatively, this can be recharged via regenerative braking from the entrance wheels or instantly from the V12 combustion engine in simply six minutes, says Lamborghini.

The appearance of a hybrid powertrain in a series-production Lamborghini additionally sees the debut of three devoted driving modes within the Revuelto; the Recharge, Hybrid and Efficiency modes mix with the collection of Citta (Metropolis), Strada, Sport and Corsa modes for a complete of 12 out there settings that are driver-selectable through two rotary selectors on the new-design steering wheel.

Citta, or Metropolis mode defaults to completely electrical driving, and when the lithium-ion battery wants recharging and charging factors are unavailable, the Recharge powertrain mode fires up the V12 to replenish the battery. In Citta mode, the suspension, transmission and stability management programs are set for optimum consolation, and limits powertrain output to 180 PS.

Strada mode ensures that the V12 combustion engine is at all times on and frequently recharges the battery, and the entrance electrical drive axle helps torque vectoring for stability at freeway speeds; powertrain output on this mode is 886 PS. In the meantime, Sport steps up proceedings to 907 PS, throughout which the V12 is at all times on and in all three Recharge, Hybrid and Efficiency modes, with suspension and aerodynamics set to boost the automotive’s agility.

Peak efficiency within the Revuelto is delivered in Corsa mode, by which the total 1,015 PS is deployed within the Efficiency powertrain mode and the hybrid system is configured to maximise the efficiency supply of the electrical drive by way of torque vectoring in addition to AWD, says Lamborghini.

Corsa Recharge mode makes it potential to maximise recharging within the extra aggressive drive mode, and permits the deactivating of stability management in addition to summoning launch management from the centre button throughout the left rotary controller. At its most efficiency potential, the Revuelto does the 0-100 km/h benchmark dash in 2.5 seconds and a prime pace of over 350 km/h.

Housing the powertrain is the brand new ‘monofuselage’ chassis that’s comprised of a completely carbon-fibre monocoque and a entrance construction of a particular composite materials manufactured from quick carbon fibres which have been soaked in resin. This Revuelto monofuselage is 10% lighter than the Aventador’s chassis, and the composite entrance construction is 20% lighter than its predecessor’s aluminium construction.

Torsional stiffness has been elevated to 40,000 Nm per diploma, or up by 25% in comparison with that of the Aventador, providing a extra inflexible base for the elements to work from.

Energetic aerodynamics characteristic within the Revuelto, and which provide beneficial properties of 61% in effectivity and 66% in downforce in high-load conditions when in comparison with the Aventador Ultimae. These work along with the semi-active suspension to handle load adjustments involving the suspension and rear wing operation in actual time.

Rolling inventory is a set of 21- or 22-inch wheels relying on specification, and these are bespoke Bridgestone Potenza Sport tyres that are developed for the Revuelto. Commonplace fitment is a set of run-flat tyres measuring 265/35R20 for the fronts and 345/30R21 for the rears, or 345/30R21 and 355/25R22 for the larger-diameter choice.

These home carbon-ceramic brakes with 10-piston monoblock calipers in entrance and four-piston calipers on the rear; these clamp on discs measuring 410 mm x 38 mm in entrance and 390 mm x 32 mm on the again.

A “efficiency mixture” of tyres of the identical 20-inch entrance and 21-inch rear measurement pairing mixture is obtainable, that are non-run-flat tyres. For many who will drive the Revuelto in snow and ice, custom-designed Bridgestone Blizzak LM005 tyres might be specified.

The Revuelto marks a Lamborghini-first with the introduction of superior driver help programs (ADAS), and right here the brand new V12 flagship packs lively lane departure warning, lane change warning, adaptive cruise management and rear cross-traffic alert, in addition to adaptive headlamps.

Inside, infotainment comes courtesy of three shows – a 12.3-inch instrument cluster, an 8.4-inch central show and a 9.1-inch show. This runs on a linked infotainment system that may obtain over-the-air updates, and the Lamborghini Unica cell app permits the driving force to proceed monitoring the automotive by way of gasoline stage, battery cost, electrical vary and its precise place when parked.

The cabin of the Revuelto carries the Y-shape theme from the outside – as seen in its DRLs – and the ‘really feel like a pilot’ philosophy is utilized to the dashboard which additionally attracts upon the Y-shape. For house, the Revuelto affords 26 mm extra headroom and 84 mm extra legroom than the Aventador Ultimae, the run-out version of its predecessor, the place the ensuing further house can accommodate baggage ‘as much as the dimensions of a golf bag’.

Supplies used within the Revuelto cabin embody Corsa-Tex cloth manufactured from Dinamica microfiber, and which might be mixed with leather-based when specifying inside trim; as much as 70 color choices can be found. In the meantime, as much as 400 exterior paint colors are supplied for the Revuelto.

Pricing for the Lamborghini Revuelto has but to be confirmed, nonetheless it’s set to be costlier than the hardcore Aventador SVJ, even within the Revuelto’s launch type, based on Autocar. Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann instructed the journal that the primary two years of buyer allocations have been spoken for.
