On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the Casa del Toro, in Sant’Agata Bolognese there is the new entry in the coolest family of racing cars. A new era opens with the Lamborghini Revuelto. It is the first plug-in hybrid super sports car since 1.015 CV e carbon frame.

Lamborghini Revuelto, here is the first step towards the electrification of the range

The presentation ofV12 hypercar, the first plug-in hybrid from Sant’Agata Bolognese. Above all, the house of Taurus takes the first step towards the hybridization of the entire range. The deadline is scheduled for 2024.

Also, there is a investment more 2.5 billion euroswhich will be used by 2028. These are intended to finance the history of the Automobili Lamborghini brand.

He prefers to give it the initials Hpev, alias High Performance Electrified Vehicle. So high performance electrified vehicle. The supercar is electrified, the electric powertrains help generate incredible performance. They also reduce consumption and environmental impact. An example: 350 km/h and a zero hundred in 2.5 seconds.

Therefore, the manufacturer declares overall emissions of 30% CO2 lower than the Aventador Ultimate. The autonomy, in EV mode, ensured by the battery with pouch cells of only 3.8 kWh inserted in the tunnel, it is just 10 km.

Lamborghini Revuelto, the technical characteristics and powertrain

The new heat engine 6.5 liter naturally aspirated V12 from 825 CVfrom the Lamborghini Scrambled it is visible from the outside. United with others three 140 kW electric thrusters each developing 190 HP.

precisely i two electric motors are placed at the front and deliver drive to the front end. The new V12 engine, known as L545, weighs only 218 kg, 17 less than the one currently used on the Aventador. While the two electric motors, which drive the front wheels, are of the cooled axial flow type. In addition to these two electric motors, a third motor (always electric) is also offered in the Revuelto, fitted to the eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission which is being offered for the first time on a 12-cylinder Lamborghini.

Lamborghini Revuelto, the frame is in carbon

Il frame is made of carbon and allows the Scrambled to become, with its 1.75 kg/hp, the Lamborghini with the best weight/power ratio ever made by the bull’s house. The low weight and power of the “electrified” V12 engine allow it to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.5 seconds and reach a top speed of no less than 350 km/h.

This frame, called monofuelage in addition to the carbon fiber monocoque it has the Forged Composites. This is a front part of the chassis made of a special material composed of short-fiber carbon in a resin bath, which Lamborghini has been using since 2008 for some structural applications.

The three electric motors are powered, as mentioned, by one 4500W/kg lithium ion battery positioned under the central tunnel, which allows you to drive the new Lamborghini also in electric mode. And if more grip is needed in electric mode, the third rear electric motor also comes into operation. This shows how the Lamborghini can travel with four-wheel drive with zero emissions.
