Lamborghini Reventon

The Lamborghini Reventòn

The mighty one, I like to call it. Directly inspired by a fighter jet, the Lamborghini Reventon is a pure design beast. Based on the Lamborghini LP640, the Reventon is a 20 units limited-edition model, presented at the Frankfurt IAA in 2007. The expensive and rare Reventon was a success, so they made the roadster version in 2009: only 15 units.
That being said, as far as I know, the technical differences with the Lamborghini LP640 aren't that enormous, except the engine is a bit stronger (V12) pushing 650 horse power, doing the 0 to 100 km/h in 3,4 seconds and has a top speed of 340 km/h. As you might've understood, it's definitely not the most powerful Lamborghini ever: the LP 670-4 SV is a little bit more powerful (670 horse power), and let's not even talk about the Aventador's 700hp (although it was created more than 4 years later therefore with all the new technology). The interesting thing about the Reventon is its futuristic and aerodynamic design.

Just like the Maserati GranTurismo looks like a shark, the Reventon looks like a fighter jet or a UFO : it's either military or out of this world. Very agressive, it's as if it was going 400km/h while standing still. Good optical illusion. The looks of a car is really important to me, and those amazing pure lines make up for the fact that it's just an endless declination of the murcielago, a bare copy of the LP640. That kind of makes you wonder when you pay more than 1,5 million euros for one. Yeah, it's THAT expensive. And now that the new Lamborghini LP700 Aventador is out, and heavily inspired by it (and more powerful), it might make Reventon owners wonder....

Here's a little trivia:
As far as some owners are concerned, I know the president of Tchetchnya, Ramzan Kadirov, owns one. And at least 3 more are in the middle-east (one in Saudi Arabia, one in Bahrain, one in the United Arab Emirates), one in Monaco, one in Paris (rumors... but it's hidden, I don't know where), at least two in the UK (one spyder, one normal), one in Taiwan (could be a spyder). Considering I have seen some rare things (from unique to 1 out of 4 or 1 out of 5)... I definitely hope I'll see one... soon... But haven't done that yet :(

Why is this car special? Rare + expensive + lamborghini's most limited edition
