Watch The 1,001-HP Lamborghini Revuelto Scorch Nurburgring Test Track

Lamborghini’s new flagship supercar takes on the legendary “Green Hell.”


Lamborghini Revuelto sightings are extremely rare, as the first examples of the Raging Bull marque’s new, 1,001-horsepower flagship model won’t be delivered to U.S. customers until late 2023. The Revuelto’s rarity in the wild is what’s made this footage of the the hybrid supercar lapping the Nurburgring so compelling.

The YouTube channel CarSpyMedia released a viral compilation of clips showing the Revuelto taking on the hallowed test track—aka “Green Hell”—giving viewers a first impression of the car’s performance.

A majority of the Revuelto’s power comes from the lightest and most powerful V12 engine in Lamborghini history. The brand-new 6.5-liter unit produces a total of 814 horsepower and can rev up to 9,500 RPM.


The remaining output is developed in two motors mounted on the front axle and a third integrated into the new eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, bringing the grand total to a truly absurd 1,001 horsepower. Zero to 60 mph takes 2.5 seconds, 124 mph comes in under seven seconds, and it’ll hit 217 mph flat-out.

Road & Track points out that traffic on the Nurburgring prevented a true test of limits, but even when the track was clear and the Revuelto was pushing, the car looked incredibly composed as it charged down the notoriously difficult track’s racing line. The V12 also sounds punchy, but perhaps a little subdued given its pedigree.

As the Nurburgring footage began making the rounds, Lamborghini released a new video in which Chief Marketing and Sales Officer Federico Foschini explains why Lamborghini has pivoted to a hybrid platform.

“With this car we step into the world of electrification, but we want to do it, as Lamborghini, with a DNA that’s all about fun and performance.
This car will be the interpretation of the electrification trend according to Lamborghini,” Foschini said.


“That’s why we created a new acronym, HPEV, that… means High Performance Electrified Vehicle, because for us everything is oriented towards fun to drive and performance. Obviously, in this case we’ll also have an element of CO2 reduction to also meet a sustainability trend.”

Foschini also gave extra background on the name “Revuelto.” Like the Aventador and Murcielago, the Lamborghini Revuelto is named after a fighting bull.


“‘Revuelto’ is the name of a bull that fought in 1880 and left the arena eight times during the fight, so it was a very wild bull. As this car will be once it hits the road.”
