The very first V12 hybrid Lamborghini is officially here.
Lamborghini launched its highly-anticipated Revuelto today, and it’s definitely worth the hype.
The launch celebrates Lamborghini’s 60th anniversary year and also marks its transition to an all-electric brand by 2024.

The Italian automaker says the Revuelto is a milestone in the history of Lamborghini.
Chairman and CEO Stephan Winkelmann has described the Revuelto as “a unique and innovative car but at the same time faithful to our DNA: the V12 is an iconic symbol of our super sports heritage and history.”
“Revuelto was born to break the mold, combining a new 12-cylinder engine with hybrid technology, creating the perfect balance between delivering the emotion that our clients want with the necessity to reduce emissions,” he said.
He clearly has high expectations for the brand’s first-ever V12 hybrid.
Lamborghini Revuelto Design
The Revuelto takes inspiration from the iconic and legendary Lamborghini V12 cars of the past.
You might recognise the 1971 Countach prototype’s perfect proportions, the muscularity and inclined front of the Murciélago, and Diablo-esque floating blade on the rear fender.
It also gets one of the most distinctive Lamborghini V12 elements; vertically-opening scissor doors.
As well as following in the footsteps of its forefathers, the Revuelto’s design is inspired by aerospace elements.
At the front, there’s a carbon-fiber hood flanked by headlamp clusters with Y-shape daytime running lights.
At the rear is a fully-exposed longitudinal engine, with a geometrically profiled wing framed by headlamp clusters with the Y-shape light signatures.
Along the sides are sculpted surfaces encompassing two lines that start from the front and taper down to the hexagonal-shaped exhausts.
Interior of the Lamborghini Revuelto
The Y-shape design theme continues on the inside, with the dashboard and center console design giving the feeling you’re in a race car.
At the center of the cabin is a pronounced carbon-fiber profile, with a “space-ship” design enclosing the central air vents and 8.4-inch vertical touchscreen.
On the subject of technology, both occupants can simultaneously view the same information on the driver’s 12.3-inch digital cockpit and passenger-side 9.1-inch display.
The race-inspired steering wheel has four rotors located on the spokes for selecting from 13 driving modes, as well as adjusting the car’s lifting system and rear wing tilt.
The Revuelto’s upholstery combines fine leathers with a new ultralight Corsa-Tex fabric in Dinamica microfiber made of recycled polyester.
At the heart of the Revuelto is a naturally-aspirated 6.5-liter V12 mid-mounted engine complemented by three electric motors, one of which is integrated into the new double-clutch eight-speed gearbox.
Those three electric motors are powered by a lithium-ion battery pack that also supports a fully-electric drive mode.
Its total output is 1,001 horsepower, meaning it can achieve 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in just 2.5 seconds and a top speed of more than 350 km/h (217 mph).
Price and Delivery
The Lamborghini Revuelto will arrive as a 2024 model and will go on sale before the end of the year.
Its cost hasn’t yet been revealed, but based on the fact the current Aventador Ultimae has a $498,000 price tag, we wouldn’t be shocked to see its successor costing more.
