Lamborghini Reventon $1.61M

Friday, 14 June 20130 comments

With a name that sounds more like an electric shaver than a supercar, but just like other Lambos before it, the Lamborghini Reventon hails from Sant’Agata Bolognese and takes its name from a prized Spanish fighting bull that fought during the 1940s.

Only 20 copies have been produced and feature a 6.5-liter V12 engine that produces 650 hp and 478 lb-ft of torque. Top speed is pegged at 211 mpg while the sprint to 60 takes 3.4 seconds.

At $1.6 million the Reventon is the second most expensive Lamborghini behind the ultra-rare Veneno, not including the track-only Sesto Elemento ($2.2M) and the concept Aventador J ($2.8M).

The Lamborghini Reventón (Spanish pronunciation: [reβenˈton]) is a mid-engine sports car that debuted at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show. It was the most expensive Lamborghini road car until the Lamborghini Veneno was launched, costing two million dollars (~€1.5 million, or ~£840,000).

 Its top speed was recorded in Dubai, UAE at 221 miles per hour (355.7 km/h). The official press release stated that only 20 vehicles would be sold to the public, with one additional car (marked as 0/20) produced for the Lamborghini Museum. Although early rumors indicated the total number would actually be 100, each Reventón is stamped with its number in the sequence of 20 between the driver's and passenger's seats.

Despite the exterior being new, almost all the mechanical elements (including the engine) are sourced directly from the Murciélago LP640. According to the official press release, the Reventón exterior styling was inspired by "the fastest airplanes".
