Any time you have a garage that has its own Lamborghini section in it, you know that you’re a certified gearhead with probably one too many cars at your disposal. Of course, we might as well be talking about Jay Leno, one of America’s pre-eminent auto nuts and the owner of the aforementioned garage with the Lamborghini section.
In the latest episode of Jay Leno’s Garage, the affable comedian shows us his Lamborghini collection, which includes two Miuras , a 1986 Lamborghini Countach, , and a Lamborghini Espada . For this particular episode though, Leno takes the time to get a closer look at one of the most exclusive Lamborghinis on the planet: the stealth black, jet-inspired Reventon .
Limited to only 20 units – the car that makes an appearance in the webisode was number 07 of 20 – the Reventon was essentially a re-bodied Murcielago LP640 and is considered a rare and exotic Lamborghini gem. It’s so rare, in fact, that even Jay Leno, the owner of thousands of cars, doesn’t even have one to call his own.
Even so, Leno was given a chance to take the Reventon out for a spin around the block and while he went easy on the supercar – probably out of fear that something bad would happen to it – the Reventon still left quite a bit of an impression on Leno’s obviously high standards. Then again, that’s what a sexy car with a 6.5-liter V12 engine that produces 650 horsepower will do to you.
