Video: Jay Leno’s Garage opens its doors for the Lamborghini Reventon

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.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Another question my friends, did he also tested smart cars or featured some of its kind on his program? I can’t wait to see his reactions and of course his experience in driving smart cars.

Wow, the Reventon. There is only a handful of them around and one is now going to be a permanent fixture on Leno’s garage, definitely a lucky streak for him.

I really like the stealth black color of this car. Oh! I remember about Ralph Lauren, the guy that collects exotic cars also..Does he has a Reventon on his garage?
