Description

The Lamborghini Reventón is a mid-engine sports car that debuted at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show. It was the most expensive Lamborghini road car until the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento was launched, costing two million US dollars (~£840,000 or ~€1.7 million). Its top speed was recorded in the United Arab Emirates at 221 miles per hour (355.7 km/h). The official press release stated that only 20 vehicles would be sold to the public, with one additional car (marked as 00/20) produced for the Lamborghini museum. Although early rumors indicated the total number would actually be 100, each Reventón is stamped with its number in the sequence of 20 between the driver's and passenger's seats. Despite the exterior being new, almost all the mechanical elements (including the engine) are sourced directly from the Murciélago LP640. According to the official press release, the Reventón's exterior styling was inspired by "the fastest airplanes".

The Reventón is the name of a fighting bull, in line with Lamborghini tradition. The bull, raised by Don Heriberto Rodríguez, was best known for killing famed Mexican bullfighter Felix Guzmán in 1943. Reventón means "small explosion" or "burst" in Spanish, when used as a noun. In the vernacular, it is also used to define a very large party or a night in town. In automotive terms, it means "blowout or flat tire" when used as a noun. When it was used as the name of a bull, however, it was intended to be interpreted as an adjective, a quality or property of that bull in particular. In this last sense, reventón means "he who seems to be about to burst". Or, in the case of a flower (a carnation, un clavel reventón) in its maximum point, of luxuriance or a mouth (una boca reventona), for its beauty and fullness.

The Lamborghini Reventón Roadster was unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. The car would use the engine from the Murciélago LP 670-4 Super Veloce. Production was set for a run of 15 units, with a MSRP of €1,100,000 (or US$1.2 million). The Reventón Roadster has a slightly lower top speed than the Reventón. Its top speed is 205 mph (330 km/h) and it takes just 3.3 s to reach 62 mph (100 km/h).
