The interior alone needed 220 hours to complete.
The Lamborghini Revuelto is by no means ordinary, but the Italian marque wants to take it up a notch with the Opera Unica. Unveiled at the Art Basel Miami Beach 2023, this one-off art piece comes with a unique design inside and out that took hundreds of hours to perfect.
Created as a follow-up to the Huracan Sterrato of the same lineage, the Revuelto Opera Unica showcases the breadth of possibilities for Lamborghini's Centro Stile design department and its Ad Personam customization program. It's also a nice way of highlighting Lamborghini's 60th anniversary.
"We wanted to create something purely artistic using brushes and a combination of colors as if the Revuelto was a canvas. That is what fueled our inspiration for this special livery," said Mitja Borkert, Automobili Lamborghini's design director. "With the dynamic hand-painted exterior, we really emphasize the aerodynamics and speed of the car."
The exterior of the Revuelto Opera Unica required a staggering 435 hours (over 18 days) of meticulous work - including 76 hours of development - showcasing Lamborghini's commitment to intricate design.
The finish features a unique combination of Viola Pasifae (purple) and Nero Helene (black), complemented by streaks of vibrant red, blue, and orange. A subtle shadow logo can also be seen on the hood, highlighting the brand's anniversary. The result is a dynamic, hand-painted exterior, with brush strokes that instantly capture attention, turning the Revuelto into a rolling canvas of automotive art. Some might argue that the same effect could be achieved with a vinyl wrap, but that's like saying that grape juice is the same as Dom Perignon. It just isn't.
The artistic theme continues inside with a two-tone leather incorporating Viola Acutus and Nero Ade, needing an additional 220 hours (over nine days) to complete. The design echoes the dynamic exterior, with warm and cool colors interwoven within the cabin. It also boasts 60th-anniversary logos stitched into the headliner, door inserts, and headrests. The start/stop cover has also been uplifted, and there's an Opera Unica plaque and embroidery that says "The Future Began in 1963."
Lamborghini didn't touch the Revuelto's incredible-sounding V12 plug-in hybrid powertrain, retaining its 1,001-horsepower output with 595 lb-ft of torque. The price for this art piece wasn't disclosed, but we're sure it won't appear on the Revuelto's online configurator.
