A Lamborghini Reventon, one of just 20 ever sold, is not only out in the public eye, it’s up for sale.
The UK-delivered ultra-exclusive Lamborghini Reventon is expected to sell for more than £1 million ($1.5 million) when it changes owners at the H&H Classics ‘Supercars and Superclassics’ sale being held at London’s Motorexpo in June. That would mean more than $2 million to drive it on Australian roads.
The rarely-seen Lamborghini Reventon was first revealed to the public in 2007 at the Frankfurt motor show where, despite its €1 million ($1.2 million) asking price, every one of the 20 examples had already been pre-sold before the covers even came off.
The Lamborghini stunned with its 470kW/660Nm 6.5-litre V12 engine, borrowed from the Murcielago LP640, and carbon-fibre body styled on the F-22 Raptor fighter jet. The Reventon flew too; 0-100km/h in 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 340km/h.
Motorexpo CEO Graeme Carver said, “The appearance, let alone sale, of a car as rare as the Lamborghini Reventon is sure to attract a large number of supercar enthusiasts and collectors.”
Other high-end brands will join Lamborghini at the auction with supercars from Ferrari, Pagani, Maserati and Koenigsegg all going under the hammer.
Whoever lands the keys to this road rocket will be in good company as while 20 Reventon’s were sold, 21 were actually produced – number 0/20 is owned and displayed by Lamborghini at its Museum in Italy while American comedian, and renowned car nut, Jay Leno owns number seven. Even more rare is the Lamborghini Reventon Roadster – the follow-up to the Reventon that was unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt motor show and limited to just 15 cars.
Entry to Motorexpo is free and gives visitors the opportunity to get up close and personal with all vehicles being open and available for people to sit in and enjoy. Almost worth the trip.
