Let’s face it; there aren’t many people in the world that can afford the Reventon supercar. Not to mention the fact that it is limited to only 20 units. So, in the case that you don’t have an extra $1,200,000 in your pocket to spend or you can’t get on the super deluxe, ultra special list to purchase the Reventon, Lamborghini is offering you the possibility to get an officially licensed RC version, scale 1:10. And what Lamborghini RC car would be complete without its own limited number? In true special edition style, the mini model will only get 65 units.
The RC car was built by De Agostini and has more features than some production models: a two-stroke 3cc petrol engine, a two-speed transmission, and permanent four-wheel drive. For "optimum road holding", designers installed an independent suspension, hydraulic shocks, and disc brakes.
Of course, it won’t develop a total of 650 HP and won’t hit a top speed of 211 mph, but it will make your dream of getting your hands on a Lamborghini Reventon come to life, in a mini way. If only they would let us know how much it costs.
Only 15 cars have been made, so you can expect that when one of them is up for sale, it wouldn’t come with a price tag of anything less than seven digits. We’re talking about theLamborghini Reventon Roadster , a jet fighter-inspired, 6.5-liter V12 engine matte gray monster of a supercar. And like we said, the car - at $2 million - isn’t cheap and comes with a lot of zeroes on it.
The Lamborghini Reventon comes with a 6.5 Liter V12 engine under its hood that makes an astounding 670 HP and 486 lb-ft of torque coupled to the automaker’s six speed e-gear transmission. This combination of high performance pistons and electronically controlled cogs will allow the upcoming Reventon Roadster super car to go from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.4 seconds while reaching a top speed of around 205 MPH.
What makes this particular Reventon Roadster all the more exclusive is that it’s the very first - "No. 1" - Reventon built straight out of Sant’Agata. With a carbon fiber body and an engine powerful enough to produce as much as 670 horsepower and a top speed of over 205 mph, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more exclusive Lamborghini Reventon Roadster than this particular one. It’s being offered by the Collection Motor Sport of Madrid, Spain for €1,465,500, or around $2 million.
When you paid millions to get a car, you paid that price because you love the car and there is nothing you will change about it. Or at least this is what we thought! Apparently, a car like theLamborghini Reventon , with only 20 units in the world, needs to be improved! How? With a new set of wheels from ADV1.
We do not say that this ones don’t look amazing, they do, but not for the Reventon. The Reventon looks amazing with its original wheels, the opaque ones made with carbon fiber insertions!
For most of us who don’t own a Lamborghini Gallardo , this bit of news is pretty irrelevant to us. But if you’re one of the lucky – and rich – few that does have a Gallardo, the German tuning house CDC-International has a package that can turn your Gallardo into a Lamborghini Reventon , or close to it, at least.
To be fair, CDC-International’s body kit doesn’t exactly hit every nook and cranny of the Reventon to a tee. But it comes pretty close. For starters, the protruding front bumper is a staple of the Reventon, as are those aggressive side skirts.
In addition to those Reventon styling cues, CDC International’s custom body kit for the Gallardo also comes with a rear spoiler, red mirror covers, a modified front apron, bonnet, and rear grill.
If you’re looking for those extremely rare supercars that are probably stowed away in some dimly-lit garage, your best bet is to check out eBay and see if any of these rare exotics happen to find its way into their classifieds. That’s what we were doing when we chanced upon this Lamborghini Reventon that is being sold for an eye-gouging ‘Buy It Now’ price of $1.5 million.
In all fairness to the price tag, this particular Reventon – tagged as Car No. 3 - is one of only 20 cars that Lamborghini ever released and one of only 10 that made its way across the Atlantic. To make things a little more enticing for anyone with that much money to spare for a car, this Reventon has a grand total of 78 miles on its odometer!
Now that we think about though, we can’t for the life of us figure out why somebody would buy this car and not even use it at all. We understand the whole ‘it’s too pretty too drive’ logic, but with over 650hp underneath that hood waiting to be unleashed, you would think that the owner would have taken it out of the block for a spin or two.
At least that’s what the new promo video for Lamborghini’s new super car is saying.
While we don’t necessarily agree with their assertions – for example, they said that we would have an equal chance of owning a Reventon and climbing the peak of Mt. Everest 350 times – we can’t fault them for saying just how hard it is to be sitting behind the wheel of a newly-bought Reventon.
We have to admit that the video is a guaranteed attention-grabber, not because of the otherworldly odds the promo lays out, but because the stunning shots of the Reventon at the tail end of the ad makes us all want and yearn for the car even more.
Now that some of the big names like Mercedes and McLaren have finished revealing their beasts for Frankfurt, the exotic Italian automaker Lamborghini is preparing to put them all to shame with the Reventon Roadster ! However, before you get too excited, take this into consideration: there will be only 20 examples of this kind of open air beauty on the road, and each of them will be priced at a very lofty $1,600,000. Deliveries will begin October 2009.
Like its coupe brother, the Reventon Roadster features a jet-inspired carbon fiber body complete with aggressive 18 inch wheels while under the hood Lamborghini will place a 6.5 Liter V12 that makes an astounding 670 HP and 486 lb-ft of torque coupled to the automaker’s six speed e-gear transmission. This combination of high performance pistons and electronically controlled cogs will allow the upcoming Reventon Roadster super car to go from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.4 seconds while reaching a top speed of around 205 MPH. How’s that for wind in your hair.
UPDATE 02/02/2011: Check out Jay Leno’s review of the Lamborghini Reventon after the jump!
The race to unveil the next must-have super car at the Frankfurt Motor Show has a new entry, and by the looks of things, it just might blow away the competition.
Meet the Lamborghini Reventón Roadster.
The car originally debuted in Frankfurt two years ago but since then, very little has been heard about it. It wasn’t until rumors started surfacing again that the stealth fighter-inspired Reventon supercar was giving birth to a Roadster version that talks surrounding the car’s reappearance began to intensify. And now, all the speculations can be put to rest: the car is on its way back to Frankfurt.
Specifications of the car are still being kept under wraps but what we do now is that the car comes with a jet-inspired carbon fiber body and 18-inch wheels. In addition to that, the car is being rumoured to have a 6.5-liter V12 engine that can produce an maximum output of 650 horsepower and 660 Nm of torque, topping at speeds in excess of 340 km/h.
It’s unveiling at Frankfurt is the surest sign we have that the car is finally ready to be rolled out of the plant, although were expecting limited models considering the price for each one is rumoured to start at around $1.75 million.
There are a few internet speculators that are anticipating the exotic Italian super car builder Lamborghini will unveil their topless version of the jet fighter inspired Reventon at the upcoming auto show this September. It would make sense for the Reventon Roadster to say hello to the entire world from Frankfurt, after all it was at the same show two years ago that the very stealth like Reventon made its official debut.
Details about the upcoming open air Lamborghini are not very clear, especially when it comes to the engine that will power the new Reventon . Initial rumors said that vehicle will use the same engine as the Lamborghini LP670-4SV , but the automaker might have problems putting all that power to the ground safely in a Roadster body. So the only thing that is left is the engine from the Lamborghini LP650-4 Roadster .
Either way it won’t matter which engine they choose, because the most attractive feature of the Reventon is its exterior, and because the it will be built as an extremely limited edition model, demand for the open air Reventon will always be in the stratosphere no matter how much power it makes, but will it be ready in time for Frankfurt?
No one expected to see a roadster version of the jet fighter inspired Lamborghini Reventon supercar before the Frankfurt Motor Show this September. However a few lucky individuals will have the opportunity to see it as early as today. That is because the Italian exotic builder has decided to unveil the exclusive luxury speed machine to a select group of likely Reventon Roadster clients.
