Lamborghini on design DNA, longevity and the Revuelto

Lamborghini Revuelto 411

Car Design News talks to Lamborghini design director, Mitja Borkert, about the Revuelto V12 hybrid

It’s always big news whenever a new Lamborghini hits the block. And especially so when it is not simply a derivative of an existing model but an entirely new platform.

The latest step change came in April with the Revuelto, a V12 plug-in hybrid that sports a dramatic exterior and puts that electrical boost toward performance, not efficiency. With new models coming out so infrequently it is fair to assume there was plenty of pressure on the shoulders of the team behind it. Heading up the Centro Stile studio is design director Mitja Borkert, who joined from Porsche in 2016 and brought with him a preference for traditional hand tools alongside the latest digital technologies.

Car Design News recently caught up with Borkert following the launch of the Revuelto to discuss the design brief and how the team approached such a significant project.
