When you say Lamborghini, you’re already talking about exclusivity. When you add Reventon to it, well you’re pretty much talking about a select group of very wealthy people who own one of the 20 cars that were made. But for everyone who didn’t have a chance of owning such a prestigious model, people like you or me, of course, the new Reventon Roadster will be made, in the same number of 20 models.
For those of you who still can’t wrap your head around such a small number of highly exclusive cars, a new ad made by Lamborghini will explain the chances of you owning one, alongside other interesting facts. Enjoy the statistic lesson delivered by the Italian supercar maker.

We revealed last week that Italian supercar maker Lamborghini will unveil a convertible edition of its extremely exclusive Reventon supercar in Frankfurt. As the show is already underway, the company formally revealed the Reventon Roadster, of which only 20 will be made, as well as details regarding performance and price.
As you know, the normal Reventon made its debut in 2007 at the Frankfurt show, and now the roaster model will follow in the tradition. The new jet-fighter supercar will have a targa roof, as well as a few other distinguishing features, as opposed to the older model, which also saw just 20 cars made. Each of these new machines will cost you about €1.1 million or $1.6 million, without taxes and will be delivered starting with October of this year.
“The Reventón is the most extreme car in the history of the brand,” said Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Lamborghini. “The new Roadster adds an extra emotional component to our combined technological expertise – it unites superior performance with the sensual fascination of open-top driving.”
Measuring the same as the normal Reventon, the new Roadster will see the addition of two hidden pop-up bars, which, in case of an rollover, will deploy in a few miliseconds, saving the life of the passengers. The engineers from the Italian manufacturer also revealed that the body of the car, made almost entirely out of carbon fiber, was so stiff to being with, that only a few modifications needed to be made in order to support the removal of the roof. As such, the Roadster is fatter by just 25 kg (55 lbs) than the normal edition, tipping the scale at 1,690 kg or 3.725 lbs.
On the inside, the Alcantara leather will contras with the carbon fiber, wrapping the two bucket sport seats. Also, three LCD displays will keep true to the jet-fighter theme of the Reventon, replacing any old analog dials.
The normal Reventon engine only saw a slight tweak, in terms of horse power, as the Roadster has 670 horses, 20 more than the original. The torque numbers are the same, 660 Nm (487 lb-ft) which is available at 6,000 rpm. The six speed automatic gearbox and the four-wheel drive, courtesy of Audi, are the same as the old Reventon. All of these technical numbers convey into a 0 to 100 km/h or 62 mph time of just 3.4 seconds, and will take the Roadster to a dizzying 330 km/h (205 mph).
Revel in these pics and await new ones, straight from the show floor in Frankfurt.

Did you manage to get your hands on one of the 20 Lamborghini Reventon models when they was announced at 2007’s Frankfurt Motor Show? Great. Now, for those of you who didn’t or those who want the wind to blow their hair when riding in this road-legal stealth fighter, the Italian supercar manufacturer has unveiled the first pictures of the Roadster version of the Lamborghini Reventon.
Only the pictures have surfaced for now, but it’s safe to say that the primary goal of the engineers was to further improve the car and, of course, chopping its top off. As you can see, all of the major distinguishing features are there, including the peculiarly shaped front and rear bumpers, as well as the 18-inch wheels and custom interior, all contributing to the jet fighter look of the Italian hypercar.
Most likely the mechanics of the prestigious car won’t be changed, as we can expect the same 6.5 liter V12 engine to produce 650 HP (478 kW) and 660 Nm (487 lb-ft) of torque in order to really get the wind to blow through your hair. The gearbox might be the same six-speed e-gear one which will transfer the power to all of the wheels of the car. With a 0 to 100 km/h or 60 mph time of 3.4 seconds, the max speed will be around 340 km/h or 211 mph.
Be ready to fork out about the same amount of money, 1.2 million Euros or $1,0750,000 for any of the predicted 20 units which will be made.

Everyone agrees that the Lamborghini Reventon is one of the coolest cars ever made. Presented last year at the Frankfurt show, the car was produced in a limited run of only 20 units, plus another two units, which will be kept by Lamborghini. Of these 20 units, 19 are already sold and the last available car arrived this weekend at the Lamborghini dealership in Las Vegas.
Priced at 1 million Euros (without taxes), the Reventon is basically the result of a mating between an Murcielago LP640 and a fighter jet. Based on the LP640, the car’s engine develops 650 hp (10 hp more than the LP640) and though its performance figures are not changed, the body kit is a result of Lambo engineers and designers using fighter jet aerodynamics.
As we said, the car is priced at around $1.5 million, but considering that it’s the last available unit and that it’s Vegas, we expect the model to be sold with more than that.

We have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that we have a video of the Lamborghini Reventon. The bad news is that the guys over at Popular Science, who did this video, are so f***ed up, that when they got their hands on Lamborghini’s million Euro supercar, they weren’t able to do a decent video. These guys are not worthy of driving that thing, we’re waiting for a real video, like one from TopGear (they had the Reventon in the studio in the last episode, but no driving). However, until then, this will do. Enjoy! Oh, and you can also check out our Lamborghini Reventon photo gallery.

With the Frankfurt Motor Show almost here, Lamborghini is preparing something special. What we’re talking about is the Lamborghini Reventon(yeah, we know, weird name for a Lambo, but it seems this is how they’ll call it) which was developed starting from the Murcielago LP640 and its design was inspired by jet fighters. And if the Bugatti Veyron, which is its only competitor has a hp-meter, the Reventon has a G-force gauge, which indicates how many Gs your body is taking.
Now the bad news is that the Lamborghini Reventon will cost 1 million Euros. Yes, you read correctly, 1 million Euro. That’s about $1.4 million. But the good news is that you don’t have to worry about not having that money, because all 20 units which will be produced are already sold. More pics after the jump.
