Is this the Aventador successor, Lamborghini's first EV, or something else?
On Tuesday, November 29, Lamborghini lodged an application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for the name "Revuelto." The filing was applied for with a number of potential applications listed, including merchandise, motors, and actual cars - both regular and electric - but the name is not new to us. CarBuzz discovered the same trademark applications with the European Union and Italian trademark offices back in May. At the time, we theorized that this could apply to the Italian automaker's first all-electric car, which it appears will be a lifted grand tourer in the same vein as the Ferrari Purosangue. We have other ideas, but this trademark confirms that the next new Lambo we can look forward to will be a global model called the Revuelto.
Might Revuelto be the name of the hybrid successor to the Lamborghini Aventador? We've seen the all-new V12 supercar testing on numerous occasions, and we know that it will have no carryover parts from the now-dead Aventador flagship supercar, with the engine and its associated electric components likely producing at least 800 horsepower.
Back to the name Revuelto, which roughly translates as "unruly." As the first hybrid V12 from Sant'Agata, the Aventador successor could well be described as unruly, particularly if it has more than 800 ponies to play with. Lamborghini's chief technical officer, Rouven Mohr, explained earlier this year that the new car will use hybridization to make the driving experience more exciting, not to facilitate downsizing.
The CTO also revealed that the V12 successor would have an all-new gearbox, which recent video clips suggest will be a dual-clutch system, meaning more refinement than the single-clutch semi-automatic seven-speed from the Aventador.
Of course, we could be very wrong about all of this. The Revuelto name could be Lamborghini's first all-electric vehicle, it could be the automaker's next V12 range-topper, or it could even be the name of the Huracan successor. What we know for sure is that the name will undoubtedly make an appearance sometime soon, and since the Sterrato has just been revealed, we probably don't have much longer to wait. The only other new Lambo we're expecting is a hybrid version of the Urus, which could also be a mighty powerhouse, but we doubt that an electrified Urus would get an all-new name.
Whatever the facts of the matter, CarBuzz is keeping a close eye on developments and will keep you updated as we discover more.
