Everything You Need To Know About The Lamborghini Revuelto’s Rear Transverse Gearbox
The greatest inventions often arise out of necessity, and in this case, Lamborghini needed to find somewhere to position the battery pack – this is a hybrid, after all. No matter how compact they are, batteries are dense items that weigh more than their dimensions may suggest, so the placement of the 3.8-kWh lithium-ion battery pack would greatly impact the weight distribution and handling characteristics of the Revuelto. The solution, then, was to place it as close to the center of the car as possible, enabling a 44:56 weight distribution ratio.
In what is commonly termed the transmission tunnel – and what has been the transmission tunnel of a Lamborghini since the days of the original Countach – you’ll now find said battery pack, which measures 61 inches long, 11.85 inches tall, and 9.45 inches wide.
But if the battery is in the middle, then Lamborghini had to find somewhere else to put the transmission. This could have been integrated as a transverse unit in front of the engine, which would have provided better weight distribution, but in doing so, Lamborghini would have compromised the space in the supercar’s cabin, which is more spacious than the Aventador Ultimae it replaces. So Lamborghini got creative and mounted it behind the engine, while its transverse nature and compact dimensions mitigated its impact on weight distribution.
