Automobili Lamborghini has unveiled the Revuelto, the first super sports V12 hybrid plug-in HPEV (Higher General performance Electrified Car or truck). Revuelto defines a new paradigm in terms of functionality, sportiness and driving enjoyment from its new architecture modern design and style highest-performance aerodynamics and a new carbon body thought. An output of 1015 CV (1001 HP) is shipped from the mixed power of an solely new combustion motor alongside one another with three electric powered motors, alongside a double-clutch gearbox that can make its debut on a 12-cylinder Lamborghini for the initial time.
The powertrain brings together high precise electricity factors: the new 127 CV/liter combustion engine will work synergically with two front axial flux motors that supply an outstanding weight-to-electrical power ratio, with a radial flux electric powered motor positioned above the initially 8-speed double-clutch gearbox debuting on a 12-cylinder Lamborghini. The a few electrical motors are driven by a lithium-ion substantial unique electricity (4500 W/kg) battery pack that also supports a fully-electrical generate method.
“The new Revuelto is a milestone in the heritage of Lamborghini, and an essential pillar in our Direzione Cor Tauri electrification strategy. It is a special and modern auto but at the exact same time faithful to our DNA: the V12 is an legendary image of our super sports activities heritage and background. Revuelto was born to crack the mold, combining a new 12-cylinder engine with hybrid technological know-how, producing the fantastic balance concerning providing the emotion that our purchasers want with the necessity to cut down emissions.” – Stephan Winkelmann, Lamborghini Chairman and CEO
Carbon fiber, created through artisan craftmanship in the Sant’Agata Bolognese manufacturing facility, is the principal structural element in just the new vehicle, utilised not only in the monofuselage and body but also for several things of the bodywork. The intensive use of carbon fiber and lightweight materials, merged with the powerful engine electricity, contributes to reaching the most effective pounds-to-power ratio in the heritage of Lamborghini: 1.75 kg/CV.
The new Revuelto combines these attributes to produce performance figures at the peak of its section: acceleration from -100 km/h in only 2.5 seconds and a best pace of additional than 350 km/h. These quantities mix with its outstanding dynamism many thanks to the introduction of electric torque vectoring, and four-wheel travel available also in absolutely-electrical drive mode, guaranteeing the Revuelto tremendous sports car expresses its amplified qualities each on observe and in day-to-day driving.
The aerospace components blend harmoniously with an animalistic muscularity beginning at the front: the shark-nose area modeling of the broad monolithic carbon-fiber hood conveys a sense of electricity and velocity. This is matched by the headlamp clusters with Y-condition daytime running lights – a distinctive stylistic element of present-day Lamborghini layout – framed by aerodynamic blades that link the splitter to the hood itself. The facet fins, positioned driving the front wheel arches, channel the airflow alongside the sides and the pronounced concavities of the doors to the side air intakes, which function sharp edges that echo the arrows on the front.
The roof brings together much more headroom with aesthetic qualities and specific aerodynamic capabilities. The recessed profile channels air to the rear wing but at the exact same time makes it possible for more headroom in the cabin for equally the driver and passenger.
The Revuelto retains 1 of Lamborghini’s strongest traditions: 4-wheel generate. As perfectly as the internal combustion engine that supplies energy to the rear wheels, a pair of electric motors now make their debut on the entrance axle, each individual giving traction to one of the entrance wheels. There is also a 3rd electrical motor positioned above the 8-velocity double-clutch gearbox that can source electric power to the rear wheels, dependent on the chosen driving mode and the ailments.
The blended torque from the combustion engine and 3 electric powered motors presents effectiveness amounts that are unique even in the domain of super sports automobiles, with 725 Nm generated by the interior combustion motor and 350 Nm from each and every of the entrance electric motors. In full, the electric power device provides a combined maximum output of 1015 CV.
The two electrical motors at the front are oil-cooled axial flux models and provide an remarkable excess weight-to-electrical power ratio: 18.5 kilograms from each individual of the 110 kW units. As properly as furnishing electrical power to the front wheels, they also have a torque vectoring operate, optimizing driving dynamics, and recuperating the energy developed less than braking. When in electrical method, the Revuelto is front-wheel travel only to enhance electrical power intake, even though electric powered travel to the rear axle is activated on desire when needed.
The Lamborghini Revuelto is equipped with a lithium-ion large particular electrical power (4500 W/kg) battery pack situated inside the central tunnel, holding the centre of gravity as low as achievable and ensuring best body weight distribution. The battery is secured by a decreased structural layer and is related to the entrance electrical motors, the rear electrical motor, and an built-in recharging unit.
The battery is 1550mm prolonged, 301mm higher, and 240mm vast, made up of pouch cells with an overall potential of 3.8 kWh. When the charge drops down to zero it can be recharged using each standard domestic alternating and charging column existing up to 7 kW in power, and wholly recharges in just 30 minutes. It can also be recharged under regenerative braking from the front wheels or straight from the V12 motor in just 6 minutes.
The new eight-pace gearbox is positioned transversally at the rear of the longitudinal V12 engine, to leave house in the tunnel for the lithium-ion battery that feeds the electrical motors. It is a technological remedy which is distinctive in the world of superior-performance vehicles, and destinations Lamborghini after a lot more at the slicing-edge of automotive engineering. The layout can help to keep the car’s wheelbase contained and supports helpful fat distribution for the greatest driving dynamics.
The double-clutch gearbox is incredibly compact just 560mm very long, 750mm extensive and 580mm large. Total body weight is just 193 kg, which features a new element fundamental to the car’s hybrid architecture: the rear electrical motor, with optimum electric power of 110kW and peak torque of 150Nm.
Positioned over the gearbox, this electrical motor doubles as the starter motor and generator, as perfectly as supplying vitality to the front electric powered motors by means of the battery in the transmission tunnel. In complete electric manner it can also offer electricity to the rear wheels that, in addition to the e-motors driving the front wheels, enables electric 4-wheel travel. How the program functions is dependent on which driving method is engaged, many thanks to an uncoupling system with a dedicated synchronizer enabling the link to the double-clutch gearbox. When it is supplying further electric power to the V12 internal combustion motor, the electric motor is in P3 posture, separated from the gearbox, even though it moves into the P2 posture to recharge the battery at very low speeds and when parked, also serving a starter motor.
In the P3 posture, the Revuelto can become an electrical 4-wheel generate motor vehicle, dependent on the travel mode picked, continuing Lamborghini’s 4-wheel drive custom even in electric manner.
Reverse gear is furnished by the two front electrical motors, though if more momentum is required the rear electric motor can also kick in, which activates the rear axle and wheels. As a outcome, the Revuelto can push all 4 wheels in electric powered mode even when reversing in reduced grip situations.
