Lamborghini has filed to trademark the Revuelto name in Europe. While we don’t know what it’s for, it is a dramatic departure from the bullfighting theme of almost every other past Lamborghini model.
First spotted by the folks over at CarBuzz, the Italian automaker has trademarked the name both with the Italian trademark office as well as with the European Union Intellectual Property Office. As of this writing, a trademark application has not been filed in the United States.
The filing reveals that Lamborghini intends to apply the trademark to four main classes of goods. Class 12 is completely focused on vehicles including electric cars while the other classes focus on ancillary products.
The Spanish word revuelto most directly translates to scrambled but can also mean unruly or turbulent. So, unless we’re missing something here, why might Lamborghini be willing to break from tradition and possibly name a new car after something that’s not related to bullfighting at all? One possibility is that the brand could use the name to indicate the turbulent or unruly nature of its first all-electric supercar – although that’s just conjecture at this point.
Lamborghini’s CEO Stephen Winkleman has publicly stated that an all-electric model will be unveiled before the all-electric Urus arrives on the market. It plans to release that EV sometime in the second half of this decade. A concept could be just as likely at this stage.
In the past, Lamborghini has tipped its hand by trademarking model names for the Aventador and even the Egoista concept car. To our ears, Revuelto doesn’t sound too bad, but we’re certainly intrigued to see what it’ll be used for.
