The Italian brand has just shared a new video of its latest supercar, taken for a race at the Piero Taruffi Autodrome in Vallelunga, north of Rome. The clip shows the many ways that driving with the Revuelto will be fun, especially on the racetrack.
Works driver Andrea Caldarelli controls the Revuelto and comments on the three-minute video. Although the supercar is the first production hybrid of the brand (the S7an was a limited model), but the joyful exclamations scattered throughout the clip make it clear that it is still a real Wild Bull. This happens almost immediately, if you watch the driver perform a burnout before shooting towards the first turns, which he can easily slalom partly thanks to the aero-active elements of the car. Caldarelli, who will be driving the new SC63 endurance racing car next season, spends the rest of the clip speeding or gliding on the 2.5-mile course.
It’s not a big surprise to learn that Revuelto is a beast. The super sports car’s plug-in hybrid powertrain includes a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V-12 and three electric motors that together pump out 1,001 horsepower and 793 ft-lbs of torque. Thanks to all this power, it can take off from zero to 60 miles per hour in 2.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 217 miles per hour. By positioning the engines with two on the front axle and an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission integrated in the rear, the vehicle has all-wheel drive and ensures more dynamic handling than almost any previous Lambo.
Production of Revuelto started this summer and delivery is expected to begin before the end of the year. If you haven’t booked your construction site yet, get ready for a long wait to get behind the wheel of the supercar. Lamborghini has stated that Revuelto’s order books will be filled by 2025. The vehicle starts at $ 604, 000, although this price could quickly skyrocket with add-ons, which conveniently makes it the most expensive flagship model of the brand to date.
