Lamborghini's latest full-blown exotic toy, the Revuelto, which replaced the Aventador, has ended up under the spotlight yet again. The Italian automaker has announced a collaboration with Sonus faber, which has led to the creation of a high-end sound system developed specifically for the plug-in hybrid supercar.
Available as an optional extra starting this month (May 2024), the audio system will turn the Revuelto into an exotic concert hall on wheels. It combines a new Full Class D amplifier with 750W, a center channel speaker, a neodymium engine in the middle of the unit, two full-range speakers behind the driver and passenger, and mid-woofers and tweeters in the doors.

The final stages of tuning will see the Sonus faber artisans add the human touch to perfect the audio experience by listening to different music genres and tweaking the sound output to ensure the perfect balance between loud and crystal clear. This is the first Sonus audio system to be featured in a Lamborghini. As the McIntosh Group's (Sonus faber's parent company) VP and General Manager Automotive, Fiore Cappelletto, said, it is "an extremely important milestone" for this brand.

This is the part where we'd talk about numbers and, more specifically, the Benjamins. However, Lamborghini does not tend to release pricing for its options. Moreover, the Raging Bull's local websites do not even reveal the starting price of the brand's toys. Still, you can bet your bottom dollar (pun intended) that the audio costs a lot of money. After all, the Revuelto is not a bargain supercar, as it kicks off north of the $600k mark in the United States of America.

What do you get for this money? A jaw-dropping amount of power that was once reserved for the hypercar realm. The Revuelto puts 1,001 hp (1,015 ps/751 kW) under the driver's right foot. 813 hp (825 ps/607 kW) come from the 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 placed behind the seats, and the rest from the three electric motors. Two of them drive the front axle and the third one assist the rear wheels when needed.

The spec sheet reveals that Lamborghini's plug-in hybrid supercar takes 2.5s to 62 mph (100 kph) and less than seven seconds to 124 mph (200 kph) en route to a 217 mph (350 kph) maximum speed. On top of that, its 3.8 kWh battery pack enables a small electric range of only a few miles.

The Revuelto has one axle in the future, whereas the other is anchored into the present, and it helps the brand transition to an all-electric era alongside the brand-new Urus SE (plug-in hybrid) and the upcoming electrified successor to the Huracan, which should be right around the corner, perhaps christened the Temerario.
