Behind the scenes of the creation of the first Lamborghini V12 Plug-In Hybrid with Chief Manufacturing Officer Ranieri Niccoli
On March 29, Automobili Lamborghini unveiled the Revuelto , the first super sports V12 plug-in hybrid HPEV (High Performance Electrified Vehicle). The Revuelto combines a new V12 with an innovative hybrid system with three electric motors, posing a very interesting challenge not just during the design and development stage but also in the manufacturing phase. Ranieri Niccoli, Lamborghini Chief Manufacturing Officer, and some of his team take us behind the scenes of the Revuelto project in the second of three short films dedicated to the super sports car, ushering in a new era for the Lamborghini brand.
“To produce the Revuelto, we understood that we had to go above and beyond,” commented Niccoli. “The Revuelto is a highly customizable hybrid car yet built using traditional skills. We raised the bar to produce it, creating what we call “Manifattura Lamborghini Next Level”: a production system with people always at its core but which we have adapted to a much more complex product and to processes we haven’t used before. With the introduction of the Revuelto, we successfully expanded the area occupied by the company by 172,000 square meters, investing € 150 million in the local area, here at Sant’Agata Bolognese.”
The first units of the new Revuelto will be delivered to customers in the fourth quarter of this year, the same year as the 60th anniversary of the historical Sant’Agata Bolognese plant, after closing 2022 with a record of 9233 cars produced.
