The Lamborghini Revuelto is the successor to the very popular Aventador range, and the Revuelto will also be the first-ever production hybrid V12 Lamborghini in history, the Sian and the Countach LPI 800-4 came with a Supercapacitor and an additional electric motor, but both were limited edition models on the Aventador platform, the Revuelto comes with a completely new development V12 engine that has been created from the start to be a hybrid model.
The Lamborghini Revuelto is powered by a naturally aspirated V12 engine with a 6.5-liter displacement pumping out 814 hp on its own, add the hybrid part with the electric motors and you are looking at a total power output of no less than 1,001 hp ... this boils down to a top speed well over 350 km/h (217 mph) and an acceleration figure of 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) of a mere 2.5 seconds.
And get this, the Lamborghini Revuelto V12 hybrid put just 1,772 kg (3,905 lbs) on the scales, making this new Raging Bull from Sant'Agata the best power-to-weight ratio ever since 1963, with 1.75kg/hp. The rear axle receives its own electric motor delivering 150 hp while each wheel at the front receives an individual electric motor capable of 150 hp too ... but they can't all deliver their maximum power at the same time, hence the total power output isn't 1,264 hp, but 'just' 1,001 hp.
The scale model
As far as I know, at the time of writing, there hasn't been a single customer car delivered by Lamborghini yet, there are countless production Revueltos seen during testing around the factory, but only a handful have made it out to dealers, which are demonstrator cars at the moment.
This makes having a scale model of this new Lamborghini V12 flagship even more interesting, despite the fact the first ones to arrive are made by Maisto, and not by MR this time, I've had the MR-made Lamborghini Revuelto on a 1/18 scale finished in Arancio Apodis on order for a long time, but still nothing, now Maisto has beaten MR to it with not one, but two shades at the same time, this Giallo Inti one and a Volcano Matt Grey version, both exclusive editions for Carmodel in Italy, the regular Maisto versions will be Arancio Apodis and a lime green color.
Ever since the Bburago/Maisto-made Lamborghini Sian and later the Countach LPI 800-4 and the V12 Vision Gran Turismo, these 1/18 scale 'toys' have been amazing value for money, and despite the Bburago-made Lamborghini Aventador being a 1/19 scale, this new Revuelto is a perfect 1/18 scale replication, I've measured it, and it scales up to real life almost to the mm, very impressive from Maisto.
Perhaps the only small remark with this new Lamborghini Revuelto from Maisto on a 1/18 scale is the lack of side windows, that's really a small detail that would make so much difference in the end, and it is not that they aren't able to make them with side windows as the Countach LPI 800-4 sold in the Far East comes with them, so I'm keeping an eye out on AliExpress to see if a seller is offering these Maisto Revuelto with side windows, preferably even in yet another color too.
