THE LAMBORGHINI REVENTÓN

At the 2007 edition of the IAA Motor Show in Frankfurt, Germany, Lamborghini stunned the world with the announcement of the ultra-exotic Reventón. As with all Lamborghini models, the Reventón name has been chosen in accordance with tradition by honoring a prestigious fighting bull. Reventón was a fighting bull owned by the Don Rodriguez family, best known for killing the famed bullfighter Felix Guzman in 1943. Reventón is included on the list of the world's most famous bulls in history. Like the fighting bull it was named after, the Lamborghini Reventón has earned its place in the books as one of the greats.

The Reventón is based on the Murciélago LP640, Lamborghini's top of the line supercar at the time. Borrowed from the LP640 is the 6,496cc all-aluminum DOHC V-12 with four valves per cylinder, featuring variable valve timing. In the Reventón, the powerplant is good for an astounding 650 horsepower at 8000rpm - up 10 horsepower over the LP640. The magnificent engine is capable of thrusting the land jet to 60mph in just 3.4 seconds. The chassis is that of a rigid tubular steel frame reinforced with carbon-fiber components. The four-wheel independent suspension has double wishbones, electronically adjustable hydraulic shocks, anti-roll bars, and anti-dive and anti-squat characteristics. Brakes are large, ventilated discs with ABS. Aside from the mechanics, the Reventón is all new. Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. stated: The Reventón is the most extreme of all, a true automotive superlative. Our designers at the Lamborghini Style Centre took the technical base of the Murciélago LP640 and compressed and intensified its DNA, its genetic code".

When creating the Reventón, Lamborghini's director of brand and design, Manfred Fitzgerald, took his team to a European NATO base for inspiration. While on their journey the team was unanimously captured by the design of the F-22 Raptor, a single seat stealth tactical fighter. Once back at the Sant'Agata Bolognese factory, the original home of Lamborghini, in close collaboration with the R&D department, the Centro Stile or Style Center brought their dream car to life.

When asked about the direction of the overall design goal, Fitzgerald noted, "bring it down to what it takes, really reduce it to only that which is necessary". Although very similar to the LP640's overall dimensions and proportions, every panel of the bodywork is all new. The entire body is all carbon fiber, save for the roof and external door panels. The heavily revised front end features gaping F-22 Raptor-like ducts that cool the carbon brakes. Like all Lamborghini supercars of recent memory, the scissor style doors open upwards, but unique and new to the Reventón are the underlying sill spoilers, which differ in size. The driver's side sill spoiler is larger, engineered to feed cold air directly to the radiator. The passenger side sill spoiler is flat, engineered to direct airflow under the car, aiding the rear diffuser and adjustable rear wing in keeping the car stable at its incredible 211mph top speed.

Adding to the cars fighter jet appearance is the paint finish; also called Reventón. The new hue is described as a mid-opaque green/grey 'without the usual shine'. The actual finish isn't glossy, but due to the subtle addition of metallic flakes in the paint, in certain lighting conditions the car throws off a beautiful glow. Of the cars many other outstanding details, one that is particularly noteworthy are the wheels. The striking new design has carbon fiber fins screwed to each aluminum spoke. Staying true to Fitzgeralds philosophy, the fins aren't there just for show, they help to create a turbine effect, further aiding in the cooling of the massive carbon brakes.

Inside, the interior is tastefully appointed with a blend of Alcantara, carbon, aluminum and leather. Three TFT liquid crystal displays are set in a housing milled from a solid block of aluminum, protected by a carbon fiber casing, which also helps to reduce glare. The driver can choose from multiple vehicle information settings and change to numerous display configurations. Included in the array of information provided to the pilot is a G-force meter, which measures the intensity of the rocket like acceleration. The cockpit of the Reventón is in a world of its own and can't really be compared to anything else without wings.

With just 20 production cars being built and only 11 of those coming to the U.S., the Rreventón was Lamborghinis most exclusive and at 1.4 million dollars, most expensive production model ever created, a title that it would hold until the release of the Sesto Elemento in 2010.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This particular example has covered less than 1,000 miles from new. The car has had 4 previous owners, all of which have done a fantastic job keeping the vehicle in "as new" condition. Accompanying the supercar are receipts documenting the most recent servicing, which took place in 2015.

From the moment of its inception, the Lamborghini Reventón has been one of the world's rarest and most sought after supercars. At the time, Lamborghini created a machine that was unequaled in both design and performance. Add to that the cars extremely low production figures and its exclusivity and what you have is a supercar that is certain to go down in history among the brands most coveted models.
