Factory driver Andrea Caldarelli took to Vallelunga to put the V12 hybrid to the test.
In a breathtaking spectacle of engineering mastery and sheer automotive prowess, Lamborghini’s new crown jewel, the Revuelto, was recently put to the test at the Vallelunga circuit in Rome, and behind the wheel was Andrea Caldarelli, a seasoned race car driver and one of Lamborghini’s own factory drivers. While enthusiasts around the world have already been impressed by the Revuelto on paper, what with 1,001 horsepower on tap, and some of the most concentrated innovation and engineering excellence a Lamborghini has ever seen, the anticipation to see just how capable it is on the track has been building since its debut this past spring.
The Revuelto is not just another supercar, rather it represents a turning point in Lamborghini’s 60-year history as it’s the brand’s first V12 hybrid plug-in HPEV (High Performance Electrified Vehicle). Launched as part of Lamborghini’s 60th-anniversary celebration, the car promises to redefine performance, sportiness, and driving pleasure. A powerhouse of a 1,001-hp powertrain masterfully combines a new V12 engine with not one, but three electric motors, in addition to maximum-efficiency aerodynamics, innovative design, and a groundbreaking new carbon chassis concept that rounds out this remarkable package.
If you’re wondering whether the Revuelto delivers on track, Caldarelli’s glowing review gives us a resounding yes. With numerous endurance titles under his belt, including the triple crown of the GT World Challenge Europe in 2019 and the 24 Hours of Daytona in the GTD category, Caldarelli knows a thing or two about what makes a car exceptional. According to him, the Revuelto is an “extraordinary supercar” capable of “uncommon power but also excellent drivability on the track.” The car’s active aerodynamics play a pivotal role in cornering, generating “impressive downforce.” Add to this the new dual-clutch gearbox for lightning-fast gear shifts, and you have a car that is not just fast, but also “super smooth and easy to handle.”
With proven on-track prowess, the Lamborghini Revuelto is set to be a game-changer in the world of exotic cars. With its state-of-the-art V12 hybrid engine, innovative design elements, and a trusted veteran like Andrea Caldarelli giving it his seal of approval, this supercar is well on its way to carving out its own niche in the automotive pantheon.
