Car of the Week: Lamborghini Revénton



Hello People

Sorry for not posting the last days, but now I am back again with a new Car of the Week: the Lamborghini Reventon!

From 2008 - 2009 Lamborghini priduced just 20 of this V12 Monster in its hometown Santa' Agata Bolognese in Italy. Every car got a stamp between the driver's and the passender's seat with the serial number. The 21st model, 0/20, was produced for the Lamborghini museum.
This Million Dollar Baby (~US$1.31 million, or ~£840,000) can reach a maximum speed from up to 340 kmh (211.3 mph).
Like Lamborghinis tradition, also the Reventon is named after a fighting bull. The bull Revénton was killed in 1943. The name also means "explosion" or "he who seems to be about to burst".

Most of the mechanical elements were directly taken from the Murciélago LP640, the exterior was inspired by "the fastest airplanes". It was just one colour available: "mid opaque grey without the usual shine." A nice interior gadget is a "G-Force-Meter" which shows you the magnitude and direction of g-forces upon the car.

Number 1/20 was delivered to Lamborghini of Las Vegas in Nevada and Number 20/20 to Lamborghini Houston, like two more cars.

Usinfg the engine from the Murcielago LP670-4 SuperVeloce, the Roadster version was born. Only 15 units for 1.100,00 € each.



Now some pictures (all were taken by myself): the real Reventon I've seen at the Klassikwelt Bodensee in 2009 ant the stand of Lamborghini St.Gallen and the small Reventon Roadster was shooten while baking a pizza :)
