    Should be painted black. However, it appears it can be damaged as it is wide open to pebbles/road debris/etc, so those radiators (my assumption) are hopefully made of some strong metal so they do not develop a leak, but maybe they will have a protective screen (once the cars are in production).

    First glance..I see Corvette..BIG time C8 vibes. Big McLaren back end copying going on there too. The car in my a customized Aventadore using various body bits from other cars.

    Very corporate..Zero feeling in it. That person it may be a very different story. JMHO..worth exactly what you paid for it.

    I really am not sure about this car. There are parts of it I like and parts that don’t work for me. Similar to the SF90. It’s also heavier than the SF90 with the same HP. Overall, I think I’d take this over an SF90 but only just. I don’t think this moves the game forward at all. I’d keep my 765 over both.

    It took time to get the Aventador past the teething stage, the first 2+ years of the Revuelto might be good to watch from the sidelines and see if they got it right, but, as shown today, its not ready. For instance, when the Murcielago was first revealed (I was there), they started it up and drove it up on stage, that is how it was presented, and then the next morning it was the lead car from the factory to downtown other words, it was ready. I did not see any video of the Revuelto being started much less driven today at its reveal, just what appears to be incomplete stationary models, I wonder if any of them actually work. Anyone have video from today of those cars being driven (not previously prepared video but 'live' video from a non-factory source)? Any showing the front trunk opened?

    I’d love to get one assuming my 6’4” frame can fit but to me I’ll wait for a few years. Good thing. (Bad?) about lambo is this model will be here for 10 years with us. Lots of opportunity to enjoy it and the coming models (sv,svj, etc)

    Not sure on the overall design but the improvements in the chassis, tech features and V12 plus electric are all good.

    I have done several searches and reviews and I think they "made up" this back story of some fictitious bull named "Revuelto", you can find the Miura bull line, the Murcielago, and Aventador but, zippo on the name "Revuelto", I think they made it up.

    It would be useful if they were to produce the verifiable historical documents regarding this.

    However, Revueltosaurus has a lot of history, as an ancient lizard dinosaur...from, get this, Bull Canyon:

    I think that's where they "associated" the name, and crossed it up with a "Bull" reference...if they were honest about it, I do not think there was a bull by that name, much less a famous one, there is no history for that.

    So, that would mean the Germans are having fun, calling their new car, a dinosaur, both in what it consumes (the so-called dead dinosaur juice, oil, which, actually is not from dinos at all, as it is abiotic, need proof, search on 'Titan hydrocarbons') and what is represents (i.e. V12 going extinct) (and, yes, I think this may be their way of signalling no more V12s for Lamborghini).

    I think that is the true reason they chose the name Revuelto...

    I think it looks neat, frustrating for those who paid $3m for a Sian only to have this look better for 1/4 the price.

    Okay with the name I guess but it makes me think of "scrambled eggs" in Spanish (huevos revueltos). There's a plate for Brooks of Dragtimes when his yellow one arrives: HUEVOS.

    I think (as a Lamborghini enthusiast for more than 40 years) that this design couldn't be more far from what Lamborghini DNA is.

    A shame they shaped one of the last glorious NA V12 with such uninspired design..

    I'm a Lamborghini guy.......BUT I will say with late model cars, I prefer curves instead of angles. Makes me appreciate that I never sold any of my vintage models.

    It is nice that Lamborghini and Ferrari are on opposite ends of the earth when it comes to design. 2 very different approaches. You either like curvaceous bodies or fighter jet stealth which, in my opinion, is getting old BUT...there is something for everyone I suppose.

    Was also the case with the Reventon - rebodied Murcielago with an outrageous price.

    Revulto looks great. I'm sure they will sell tons of them.

    Corvette. McClaren, NSX influences. The tech will be epic but I’m no fan of the clothes.

    The downside of long term retention of the same design team. Its not outrageous, nothing new. Disappointed.

    I’m sure they will sell. But Lambo needs to move towards some fresh ideas. I do really love the Fezza SP3. They nailed it there!

    I believe that, more than a question of curves or angles, (or a combination of both) the failure is the saturation of details in a single body. And also, details that do not agree with each other. The design does not flow. It's just a bunch of details that don't fit together.

    This happens in all the special editions of the Aventador, in the horrible Huracán STO, etc... Mitja Borkert's era as chief designer at Lamborghini must end as soon as possible. Lamborghini's dna is to design cars for gentlemen drivers, not for rappers...

    Big let down on the aesthetical side. It looks like an Aventador with a very bad body kit and too big wheels (21 and 22" wheels? Come on!).
    Interior is not bad though, and I'm sure the car is technicaly brillant, but still...

    Looks fine to me. I'd never mistake it for another brand.

    I think it looks great. Was in N.Y. to pick mine out and I was impressed. It has a city mode that is all electric and quiets down the car. If you live in a community, you can sneak out before turning on the gas engine. This should help with the neighbors. Looks special in person.

    Here is what happens when you replace Italian designers (de Silva, Perini) with a German designer (Borker)… the last car designed by Italians will remain the Aventador.
