For sale: 211mph Lamborghini Reventon
Tuesday 17 January 2012
• Ultra exclusive Lamborghini Reventon for sale
• £849,950 asking price
• Stealth plane inspired styling
A rare Lamborghini Reventon has been advertised on Auto Trader.
Made in a limited production run of just twenty cars, the Reventon is the most expensive Lamborghini ever made, reaching prices of over £1 million when new.
The car advertised is number 18. With just 1,000 miles on the clock, it commands a price of £849,950.
Ownership was originally an invite only affair, but it’s now available to anyone, provided you can stump up the cash.
It is believed to be the only Reventon in the UK, and is being sold by Surrey based supercar specialist SuperVettura.
Based on the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 – the Italian manufacturer’s old flagship supercar – The Reventon is a stealth plane inspired re-styling, that features carbon fibre body work and an aircraft style electronic dashboard made up of three LCD displays.
It has a mid-mounted 6.5-litre V12 engine, which develops 650bhp. It is enough to see the Reventon cover the 0-60-mph sprint in 3.3 seconds, and on to a top speed of 211mph.
Last year the Murcielago was replaced by the Aventador. It boasts even more power (now 700bhp) and similarly attention grabbing styling. As yet, no Reventon style special edition has been announced, but is likely as a last hurrah before it is replaced.
