Lamborghini Rolls Out Revuelto
Barring the pronunciation, everything the new flagship Lamborghini will be has been released. Today they've shown off the look of the car and it's come with mixed reviews. Many love the performance and architecture, but there's a split on the presentation. It has a very clear Sian feel to the vehicle and it's not shocking that the underlying frame and drive-line were first tested via the Sian application.
What is clear is that the purpose of the Revuelto is to invigorate buyers to accept the new hybrid system as an incredibly powerful platform and worthy as a flagship position. So the question is, does it do that? There's no doubt that the classic V12 is present, which is exactly what we wanted to see and gives many the feeling that this engine will be with us for at least the next 10 years, at least until it's banned outright. The truth is, it's simply a reprieve to get past the time it will take to develop an all electric worthy of the Lamborghini name.
As long as it has a V12 it should see sales and the new dual clutch system has been desired by Lamborghini owners for some time, so there are those that will purchase it just for that bonus, but continued input on how it performs on the streets and the feeling of those that drive it will be important and key to its acceptance.
These are all hurdles the Aventador didn't have to overcome. It had the added value of new carbon fiber, the first new engine for Lamborghini with the V12 and even more horsepower than ever before. Everyone was on board with it. That isn't true for this new platform. There are stark critics too the new platform, but they have to concede that it is indeed stays pure to Lamborghini design. It's cutting edge, a V12, very fast, and made for the streets.
We'll keep an eye on it until the final word comes in and have a show for should you buy down the road.
