Meet the new Lamborghini flagship. It's called the Revuelto and it's the first truly new V12-powered Lamborghini in nearly a decade. It's the latest in a 60-year lineage of 12-cylinder flagships that spans the Miura, Countach, Diablo, Murcielago and its immediate predecessor, the Aventador. The Revuelto is up there with the most radical of them all. It features styling that's inspired by the Sián, Lamborghini's supercapacitor-equipped special edition, and it's nearly as extreme-looking in today's world as the Countach was when it debuted in 1974.
It's hard to talk about a new Lamborghini without going into detail about the way it looks, so we'll start there. The Revuelto is defined by two lines. The first starts at the nose and runs upward along the haunches of the car — a strong shoulder that ends right at the taillights. The other begins at the base of the front pillar, swoops over the passenger compartment, and meets the first at the top of the rear wheel arch. The blacked-out sideways hourglass design up front is meant to both look imposing and collect airflow and purposefully direct it.
Of course, there is plenty of aerodynamic trickery built into the Revuelto's design. A deep front splitter combines with an active rear wing, and the result is a maximum of 33% more downforce at the front and 74% more at the rear compared to the Aventador Ultimae (the final and most advanced iteration of the Aventador). There are also two NACA ducts in front of the rear wheelwells to collect errant airflow and redirect it to cool the rear brakes as well as side intakes to direct air to the massive engine that sits amidships.
