Lamborghini Delivers Last Reventón Supercar

Representing the pinnacle of the Lamborghini lineup since its debut at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show, the ultra exclusive Reventón supercar has reached the end of its very short production run, with car number 20 of 20 being delivered to its well-heeled owner from its birthplace in Sant’Agata Bolognese, Italy. The hand-built Reventón is perhaps the most over-the-top road-going vehicle that Lamborghini has ever offered—a sinister looking, one million euro, 650 horsepower V-12 beast of a machine.Lamborghini CEO and President Stephan Winklemann personally handed off the keys to Reventón number 20, calling the car, “The most extreme of all – a superlative on wheels.”

Despite is limited status and the clandestine nature of its owner group (Lamborghini claims that all Reventón buyers have asked to remain anonymous), we have already seen at least one example turn up on the exotic clearinghouse known as eBay Motors. Perhaps not all of the hand-selected owners respect the storied brand as much as they should?

A super sports car, yet one that defies comparison – the Lamborghini Reventón is both an ultimate driving machine and limited work of art – with a total of only 20 built and a price of one million Euro (excl. tax), every Reventón is highly exclusive and virtually unique. The Reventón bearing the number 20/20 has now been delivered to its proud owner – thus completing the series.

Highly skilled craftsmanship

Each Reventón was produced with extremely skilled and high-precision craftsmanship in Sant’Agata Bolognese, the home of the brand and the birthplace of all super sports cars bearing the sign of the bull. “The Reventón, however, is the most extreme of all – a superlative on wheels. Based on the technical underpinnings of the Murciélago, we have concentrated and further enhanced the brand’s DNA – its genetic code,” says Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A., who personally handed over Reventón Number 20 to its new owner at the factory.

Enjoy the incomparable driving pleasure

20 friends and collectors of Lamborghini cars – who all wish to remain anonymous – now own this unique piece. Most of them view the Reventón not only as the highlight of their collection, but also want to enjoy the intensity of the incomparable driving pleasure. Ultimately, the Reventón, aside from its extreme form, boasts the full technical and dynamic competence of Lamborghini’s 12-cylinder sports cars. This means the breathtaking performance of 650 hp and a top speed of 340 km/h. It also means absolute reliability and the feasibility of everyday use.

A future legend

This offers all other Lamborghini fans the chance of at least occasionally coming across a Reventón, be it on a beautiful mountain road, at the side of a race track or at an exclusive social event. And one thing is also certain – in future, a few of the 20 Reventón will be available for admiration in a museum. Because Lamborghini has not only created a design masterpiece, it has also added another classic to the rich history of the brand. The lucky owners can be justly pleased.
