Lamborghini Unveils Its Aventador Replacement, the 1,001 BHP Revuelto
The Aventador replacement is here, and in true Lamborghini style, the all-new Revuelto (codename LB-744) is here to dominate the competition.
With every Raging Bull comes drama, and the Lamborghini Revuelto is dripping in it. It marks the Italian automaker’s first step into the world of electrification, and before everything turns into an EV, Lamborghini has paired its iconic 6.5-liter V12 with not one, not two, but three electric motors. Combined, the engine puts out a staggering 1,001 BHP, which is good 0-62 MPH in 2.5 seconds, a sub-7.0 second sprint from 0-124 MPH, and a top speed of 217 MPH — which might go even further given the right dynamics and environment.
The High Performance Electric Vehicle (HPEV) is, subsequently, the marque’s most powerful machine it’s ever built. Regenerative charging courtesy of the V12 comes in just six minutes, meaning you’ll likely always have the full amount of power on tap, while making sure it comes hard and heavy is a brand-new eight-speed dual-clutch transmission sending the power to all four wheels, per Lambo norms.
With batteries comes weight, but this being a hypercar means the manufacturer has developed lightweight batteries weighing just 70kg. The center of gravity is low, making it stick to the road even more than its older brother the Aventador, and on the topic of that former car, the Revuelto is expected to be 30% more fuel efficient — perfect in this cost of living crisis, then.
Elsewhere, a carbon fiber tub has been built to keep weight down further, but the overall result is a car that does weigh more than the Aventador. Somewhat expected, but by no means a negative factor when you’ve got 1,001 BHP at your disposal.
As for styling, it’s quintessential Lambo. Angles are sharp and profiles are wedged, harking back to iconic models like the Countach. The front lights update the traditional set and sit under the hood, while radars on the front are designed to be visible, giving the Revuelto a menacing look. The air intake on the rear haunch is utterly huge, no two ways about it, as is the diffuser that sits underneath the spoiler center-mounted twin exhaust pipes, finished in a hexagonal design that once again nod to Lamborghinis gone by.
Inside, you’ll find a new interior design centered around a touchscreen infotainment system and a passenger-side letterbox display, all while offering more space than the Aventador.
Pricing and an order date are yet to come, but it’s expected to cost more than the flagship Lamborghini Aventador SVJ — which was $515,000 USD. Take a look at the stunning new creation above.
