After the Miura, Countach, Diablo, Murcielago and Aventador, the Revuelto is just the sixth all-new series production V12 flagship in Lamborghini’s 60-year history.

With 1000bhp from its naturally aspirated 6.5-litre engine and trio of electric motors, it is also the most powerful. With four-wheel drive, it will hit 62mph in just 2.5 seconds before running on to the far side of 217mph – so it’s probably the fastest ever Lamborghini too.

At its core is a new carbon fibre tub that’s lighter and stronger than the Aventador’s. That car’s inboard-mounted, pushrod-actuated suspension has been replaced by more conventional spring and damper assemblies (still with double wishbones) for packaging reasons, while there is finally a dual-clutch gearbox. The Aventador’s archaic robotised manual transmission was its major weakness. A new eight-speed DCT should ensure the Lamborghini Revuelto isn’t hindered in the same way.

The V12 produces 814bhp, the rest coming by way of those three motors. One is integrated into the gearbox with two more on the front axle, one on each wheel giving that 4WD capability, all of them powered by a small 3.8kWh battery. The electric-only range is up to 10 miles which mightn’t seem a lot, but it should be enough to finally mean V12 Lamborghini drivers won’t need to loudly rev their engines in Knightsbridge. Don’t hold your breath…

Expect the car to weigh at least 1800kg at the kerb, if not more, meaning the Revuelto is up there with the heaviest Lamborghini supercars as well. There’s rear-wheel steering and active aero, plus a whole plethora of driving modes. Lamborghini claims Revuelto production is sold-out for two years, mirroring the very upward trajectory that Sant’Agata finds itself on right now. Last year was a record year for Lamborghini with 9233 cars delivered.

The Revuelto is the first of a new breed of Lamborghini – every subsequent model, the company says, will be electrified in some way, including the replacement for the Huracán, which is due towards the end of next year. It’s worth noting that the V12 in the Revuelto will rev to 9500rpm, suggesting that even as it pursues more advanced powertrain technologies, Lamborghini hasn’t yet forgotten what makes a Lambo a Lambo.
