Lamborghini’s New Hybrid Hits Track

Lamborghini has unveiled its newest supercar, the Revuelto, in the brand’s 60th-anniversary year. Ahead of its global dynamic debut at the Autodromo Piero Taruffi in Vallelunga, Lamborghini factory driver, Andrea Caldarelli, conducted a track testing of this first-of-its-kind V12 hybrid plug-in HPEV (High Performance Electrified Vehicle) on the famed Roman circuit.

Why It Matters

The introduction of the Revuelto marks a significant pivot in Lamborghini’s product lineup. It represents a new direction for the brand, blending its renowned performance capabilities with innovative electric technology. This move reflects the wider industry trend of adapting to more sustainable technologies while maintaining the essence of luxury and performance that supercar enthusiasts expect.

Key Points

  • The Revuelto is the first super sports V12 hybrid plug-in HPEV from Lamborghini.
  • Features include an unprecedented new architecture, innovative design, optimized aerodynamics, a fresh carbon chassis concept, and a 1015 CV powertrain. This powertrain merges a new V12 engine with three electric motors.
