Revuelto: A New Era of Hybrid Sports Cars
Lamborghini’s latest addition to its lineup of luxury sports cars is the Revuelto, a hybrid super sports car that combines the power of a 12-cylinder internal combustion engine with three electric motors.
The car’s total power output is 1015 CV, which sets a new benchmark in performance and driving experience. The Revuelto also features a double-clutch gearbox and a lightweight carbon fibre structure, which improves its power-to-weight ratio and enhances sustainability.
Design and Features
The Revuelto’s design language blends the brand’s aerospace-inspired elements with a new futuristic approach.
It’s sleek exterior features a carbon fibre front structure, large side air intakes, and a recurring Y-theme in its headlights and taillights. The car’s interior is designed to create a seamless connection between driver and machine, and the “Feel Like a Pilot” concept further emphasizes this idea.
The Revuelto’s carbon fibre monocoque is extended to the front end, creating a monofuselage that draws inspiration from aeronautics. This design improves the car’s aerodynamics and enhances its performance figures.
The use of Forged Composites technology in the car’s manufacturing process is more sustainable than traditional methods, which aligns with Lamborghini’s commitment to environmental sustainability.

The Huracán Tecnica, the latest member of the Huracán range, provides the purest Lamborghini driving experience with improved aerodynamics and a naturally-aspirated V10 5.2 L engine that produces 640 CV and 565 Nm torque at 6,500 rpm.
The Urus Performante, the sporty evolution of the first-ever super SUV, features a distinctive sporty design, lightweight carbon-fibre components, and improved aerodynamics. It takes driving fun and SUV performance to a whole new level.
