A naturally aspirated V12 alongside three electric motors and a lithium-ion battery makes a total of 1,001bhp in this Lamborghini Revuelto.

Lamborghini has revealed the Revuelto.

A replacement for the Aventador, the Lamborghini Revuelto is the second car from the firm that makes use of an electrified drivetrain after the Sian.

But where the Sian makes use of supercapacitors, the Revuelto sports a 3.8kWh lithium-ion battery. This battery supplies power to a total of three 147bhp motors, two of which are located at each wheel at the front axle, while the third sits above a new, eight-speed double-clutch gearbox.

Driving this gearbox, in turn, is a naturally aspirated 6.5-litre V12, which delivers a total of 814bhp at 9,250rpm and 725Nm of torque. Combined with the electric motors however, the car can deliver a total of 1,001bhp.

That power will see the Lamborghini Revuelto accelerating from zero to 100km/h in just 2.5 seconds. Lamborghini states that the car will complete the zero to 200km/h sprint in less than seven seconds, and will reach a top speed of 350km/h.

Managing all the accelerative force requires a strong chassis, and the Revuelto has precisely that, thanks to its new aeronautics-inspired monofuselage. This chassis is said to be made from multi-technology carbon fibre, while its front structure is made from forged composites, allowing a 25% increase in torsional stiffness compared to the Aventador, while being 10% lighter.

Paired to this chassis is a double wishbone setup at the front and rear alongside anti-roll bars that are 11% and 50% stiffer than those in the Aventador at the front and rear respectively.

A four-wheel steering system will also pair with the electric torque vectoring made possible now with the electric motors to give the car the necessary agility and responsiveness, while maintaining high speed stability.

This chassis is wrapped under a body that brings Lamborghini into the electrified age. At the front, the Revuelto gets an aggressive shark-nose front, sporting head light clusters that house Y-shaped LED clusters.

Look at the car from the flank and your eyes are likely to first rest on the distinctive side air intakes, which feature sharp edges that echo the arrows on the front. These are fed from the airflow that comes from the side fins located behind the front wheel arches.

The rear of the car, meanwhile, has been designed to place emphasis on its V12 hybrid drivetrain by leaving it fully visable. It is further visually connected it to a double hexagonal exhaust that sit high on the car, below the geometrically profiled wing.

A total of 13 drive settings are said to be offered with the Lamborghini Revuelto. Its mildest 'Citta' mode, intended for use in city centres or emissions-restricted zones, limits power to 177bhp. In this mode, the car will make use of available charge in its battery, although the V12 will intervene to charge the battery if it is depleted. The car's suspension system, traction control and gearbox will also offer maximum comfort in this mode.

But on the other end of the spectrum is the 'Corsa' drive mode. Designed to highlight the Revuelto's dynamic capabilities on the track, this mode unleashes the car's full 1,001bhp output. The car's hybrid system is additionally calibrated to make maximum use of torque vectoring and all-wheel drive.
