An early production phase model of the 2023 Revuelto, closely followed by a Purple Urus, was spied on the Nurburgring. The Revuelto had no camouflage on which lead us to believe this is a final production car practicing the green hell in an effort to bring home to Sant’Agata a new record lap time.
While the automaker’s intentions behind testing the Aventador replacement on the track are still pure speculation, the spy video hints at the Revuelto’s precise handling character on the track. Starting from a careful unloading (from the transporter) to a powerful display of speed and agility, it is clear that Lamborghini is here to impress. The Revuelto showcased its lively character with occasional wiggles subtly hinting at its astounding speed and power (1000hp+).
Watch the Revuelto on the Ring
The Debut of the Most Potent Lamborghini Production Model
Ever since its debut in March 2023, the Lamborghini Revuelto has been the talk of the auto world town; It made waves being the most potent Lamborghini production model ever produced. Powered by a newly developed naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12; the engine roars to life, supplemented by three electric motors in a hybrid system. Together, they pump out a staggering 1,001 horsepower and 1,051 pound-feet of torque, the power transferred to all four wheels via an eight-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Despite the electric assistance, the V12’s awe-inspiring growl is a testament to Lamborghini’s dedication to the gas-powered excitement.
Slated to hit the US market later this year as a 2024 model with a $600,000 price tag, this is just the beginning for the Lamborghini Revuelto. We can say with certainty that faster, more powerful SV and SVJ versions are in the pipeline as well. Given the Aventador-based special editions we’ve seen in the past, the Revuelto is bound to follow suit, possibly threatening the Nurburgring’s ICE production car lap record.
The Importance of Testing Early Production Supercars on the Track
Testing early production models on the track is a critical step in the development process of supercars. It allows manufacturers like Lamborghini to optimize performance, assess safety features, evaluate reliability, benchmark against competitors, and gather valuable feedback. By subjecting their vehicles to the demanding conditions of a racetrack, manufacturers can fine-tune every aspect of their product to create the ultimate driving machine. We just have no clue at this time if this was a test mule or a final production chasing a new Nurburgring record.
