Miura. Countach. Diablo. Murcielago. Aventador. The name of every halo car from the house that Ferruccio built. It's an easy list to remember because Lamborghini builds memorable cars, and as the era of combustion draws to a close, the Italian manufacturer has one more name to add: Revuelto.
The new Lamborghini Revuelto is a plug-in hybrid hypercar that produces a combined system output of 1,001 horsepower from its 6.5-liter V12 and three electric motors. If you take the horsepower rating of the most powerful Countach ever sold and combine it with the most powerful Diablo, you'd still have less horsepower than the Revuelto.
Lamborghini sure knows how to stuff a stat sheet, which is why the new Revuelto has earned a coveted place on this month's cover of duPont REGISTRY. Follow along on page 12 where we'll take you through the Revuelto from top to bottom, including how its all-wheel-drive system works, what each of its 13 separate driving modes is for, and when it will go on sale.
Speaking of hybrids, there's a reason why so many supercar manufacturers have chosen this powertrain of late. On page 44, we'll dive into the answer, which not surprisingly involves government regulation designed to reverse the effects of climate change.
Fortunately, that happens to dovetail nicely with the pursuit of ultimate performance. It's always nice when the solution to a global threat has exotic cars with four-figure horsepower ratings as a side effect.
Speaking of ridiculous power, there's debate about which SUV is a true supercar for the family. The Aston Martin DBX 707, though, has our money. An Aston Martin for schlepping rugrats around makes sense – after all, James Bond can't still be childless after all that womanizing. A week with this nearly 700-horsepower SUV informed our full review, which you can read on page 24. If Bond did upgrade to an SUV, he'd need to sell his grand tourers.
