According to Lamborghini, the development process for the Revuelto, the brand’s first V12 hybrid plug-in high-performance electric vehicle, has been exciting from an R&D and design perspective. It sits on an entirely new platform and features numerous other innovations, which were a fresh challenge to craft. Chief technical officer Rouven Mohr and head of design Mitja Borkert discuss the project in a new series.
Mohr stated, “The main challenge has been to transfer the Lamborghini DNA into the electrified world. Not only have we increased the power and decreased emissions at the same time: Revuelto is an overall improvement in terms of performance. Primarily, this is the first car where we have completely changed the architecture; on top of this it is the first Lamborghini with an electric four-wheel drive and it also features a totally new carbon-fiber monocoque and an unprecedented sound.”
“Every surface that we design in a Lamborghini has to be a high-performance surface,” said Borkert. “One of the parameters was to keep the typical Lamborghini silhouette and the cabin’s strong inclination: all the lines embrace the cabin, celebrating the exposed V12 engine at the same time. The new Revuelto had to be innately recognizable as a Lamborghini, and from the very first concept we set out to create the Lamborghini of the next decade.”
