Revealed: Lamborghini's Reventón supercarEnlarge Photo
Lamborghini’s new jetfighter-inspired supercar has finally broken cover and we can now reveal that the €1 million supercar will be called the ‘Reventón.’ The car will be manufactured in a limited run of just 20 copies and is powered by a 650hp 6.5L V12 engine. Peak torque stands at 660Nm and drive is sent through the permanent Viscous Traction AWD system via Lamborghini’s e-gear transmission. As in the original Murciélago LP640, the Reventon accelerates from 0-100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds and has a maximum speed of over 340km/h.
Though based on the Murciélago LP640, the new Reventón features a new body and an army green interior. Carbon-fiber is used extensively for the body with the panels glued and riveted to a chassis, which blends both composite materials and steel in its construction. The front is characterized by the acute angle of the central ‘arrow’ nose cone, which is flanked by the forward-facing air intakes.
The engine hood is made from glass laminate and features a marked arrow angle. Other unique details include the fuel-cap, which is milled from a solid aluminum block. Up front, the Reventón uses seven LED for the daytime running lights and another nine for the indicators.
