The Lamborghini Revuelto is sold out for two years
Barely months after it was launched, orders have stacked up for Lambo’s hybrid hypercar
The outgoing Aventador was the most successful V12-engined Lamborghini ever sold. More than 11,000 hypercars were shifted over its lifetime, more than double the Murcielago and more than all of the previous V12s combined.
Its successor then, looks to be off to an equally strong start. News arrives of the hybrid Lamborghini Revuelto’s first few months in this world, and apparently orders for the new bull already cover two years of production.
Production which Lamborghini is keen to point out involves human hands at every stage. “Each individual station of the Revuelto line is distinguished by its high-tech impact which, as always at Lamborghini, supports – and never replaces – the indispensable work of humans,” the company said.
Mention is made of Lamborghini’s COBOTS – ‘collaborative robots’ – performing repetitive tasks overseen by human eyes, which – says Lambo – helps remove inaccuracies and errors. At least until these 'cobots' decide to rise up and enslave us all, but that’s for another day.
Until that day, a quick recap on the new Revuelto. Named after a celebrity fighting bull (of course), it features a naturally-aspirated 6.5-litre V12 assisted by three electric motors. Two of those are sited on the front axle, one integrated into the eight-speed dual clutch gearbox.
Total power for this hybrid Lambo? A cool 1,001bhp in its max attack ‘Corsa’ mode. It’ll do 0-62mph in 2.5s. Flat out, you’re looking at 217mph. Not slow, then. We’re also promised a bit more ‘interactivity’ than the outgoing Aventador. Which is basically a polite way of saying ‘it drifts’.
