lamborghini reventon fast cars

The Lamborghini Reventón (Spanish pronunciation: [Reben'ton]) is a mid-engine sports car that debuted at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show. It is the most powerful and expensive Lamborghini road car to date, costing one million euros (~US$1.25 million, or ~£840,000).[1] The official press release stated that only 20 vehicles would be released to the public,[2] with one additional car (marked as 0/20) produced for the Lamborghini Museum.

Despite the exterior being new,[2] almost all the mechanical elements (including the engine) are sourced directly from the Murciélago LP640.[6] According to the official press release, the Reventón exterior styling was inspired by the "the fastest airplanes".[7] To emphasize this, Lamborghini staged a race between a Reventón and a Panavia Tornado fighter plane.[

The Reventón is named for a fighting bull, in line with Lamborghini tradition. The bull, raised by the Don Heriberto Rodríguez family, was best known for killing famed Mexican bullfighter Félix Guzmán in 1943.[9][10] Reventón means "explosion" or "burst" in Spanish, when used as a noun.[11][12] In the vernacular, it is also used to define a very large party or a night in town.

The instrument panel in the Reventón comprises three TFT liquid crystal displays (LCDs) with two different display modes. The instruments are housed in a structure milled from a solid aluminium block, protected by a carbon fiber casing. The G-Force-Meter is completely new and it is one of the talking points of the Reventón. It displays the dynamic longitudinal drive forces of longitudinal acceleration, during acceleration and braking, and transverse acceleration around bends. These forces are represented by the movement of an indicator on a graduated three-dimensional grid, depending on the direction and intensity of the acceleration.

The first car went to Lamborghini of Las Vegas in Nevada.[16]
In addition, 4 Lamborghini Reventóns are in the process of being delivered to Singapore. However, whether they will be registered will have to be considered due to the fact that while the car itself costs S$2.1 million, registration can cost up to S$5 million.[17]
Car #3 was sold in an eBay auction and was delivered to Symbolic Motorsports In La Jolla, California . It currently resides in Vancouver, Canada.

A roadster version of the vehicle was unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. Cars UK reported the production of 9 Lamborghini Reventón Roadsters, with a MSRP of €1,200,000. The car would use the engine from the Murciélago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce.[21] Autocar has since published a report, in July 2009, saying that potential buyers have been shown the car - although a Lamborghini spokesman told the publication that reports of the car were "just speculation".
