    The new Lamborghini Revuelto has already been sold out until 2026, according to company boss Stephan Winkelmann. The firm’s first plug-in hybrid supercar is the most potent Lamborghini in the carmaker’s history and it features a new hybrid V12 powerplant.

    2. Carbon-fibre tub is 40 percent stiffer than previous flagship Lamborghini 
    3. Lamborghini India has managed a few allocations of the hybrid supercar

    Lamborghini CEO confirms that Revuelto sold out until 2026 

    While the addition of electric power marks a significant departure for Lamborghini's flagship model, Winkelmann, speaking exclusively to our sister publication, Autocar UK at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, said "Hybridisation has been digested by our customers and the greater public. With the Revuelto, we have an order bank that is exceeding all our expectations. We are in the year 2026 with orders.."

    Winkelmann added that many early buyers were existing Aventador customers who had been given early access to the machine."The blend of tradition and innovation is key for the success of Revuelto," he said. "Everyone was expecting hybridisation, everybody was hoping to get another V12 and the two things came together in a perfect way. The design is unmistakably Lamborghini. It was not easy for us to continue to develop a new V12 because of all the regulations with emissions, but the engineers did a fantastic job."

    Lamborghini’s Revuelto journey

    Given the Volkswagen Group’s widespread move to downsizing and turbocharging, Lamborghini had to work hard to justify retaining that V12 motor, according to former chief technical officer Maurizio Reggiani, who led the early development of the Revuelto.

    Yet, it was one that Lamborghini was able to win due to both overwhelming support from existing customers and the use of hybridisation to cut emissions. The new engine is 17kg lighter than the one in the car it replaces but makes more power, delivering 825hp at 9,250rpm. The combined power for the Revuelto stands at 1,015hp. 

    The battery pack sits in what would previously have been considered the transmission tunnel and stores a modest 3.8kWh of charge which is good for an electric-only range of around 9.5km. However, the V12 can directly recharge the battery pack through the rear motor in a process that's claimed to take just six minutes. Fuel economy and CO2 figures haven’t been finalised, but Lamborghini says both will be around 30 percent better than the Aventador Ultimae's.

    The Revuelto will be heavier than the Aventador, despite weight savings throughout the structure. The new car’s carbonfibre tub is both lighter and 40 percent stiffer than the last generation's and now features a composite front crash structure – a world first in a road car.

    The car's design draws on many familiar Lamborghini themes and keeps the trademark wedgy proportions that stretch back to the Countach. But there is lots of innovation, too – from the compact LED headlights that sit beneath the overhang of the bonnet to the deliberately visible radar sensors integrated into the front grille.

    Lamborghini Revuelto India launch and price 

    Lamborghini India has managed to secure a handful of allocations and the first delivery is expected to happen around November 2023. There's no word on the price yet, but after adding the customs duty and local taxes, the price is likely to go up by another digit. Yes, the Reveulto is estimated to cost beyond Rs 10 crore on road, making it by far the most expensive Lamborghini ever.
