Lamborghini has entered the electrification era with its first plug-in hybrid, a 1,001-hp hypercar called the Revuelto. Named for a fighting bull that decided to bolt from the ring 143 years ago, the new Lambo shows a rowdy spirit with three electric motors unapologetically teamed with a 6.5-liter, gas-fueled V12 that parties like it’s 1970. Sharpened stealth-jet design could only come from Lamborghini, while new “monofuselage” carbon-fiber construction keeps strength high and weight reasonable. Reports say it’s already sold out for the first two years.
Lamborghini used the opportunity of “The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering” in Monterey, Calif. in August to unveil its latest track-ready supercar, the Aventador SVJ. The Aventador SVJ lapped the famed “Green Hell” in Germany in 6:44.97, setting the record for a production car.
