Click above to view gallery of Lamborghini Reventón flown over Turin

Look! Up in the sky... it's a bird... it's a plane... it's an extremely rare and expensive supercar being suspended hundreds off feet of the ground by an Italian military helicopter! That's right, Lamborghini got the bright idea that it could make a big entrance at a conference today in Turin, Italy by having its halo car, the Reventón, flown in by military helicopter and placed atop the roof the Lingotto building, wherever that is. The conference, which was hosted by Lamborghini and about the Italian automaker, was called "Lamborghini and speed – a project in record time". It was apparently about how Lamborghini developed the Reventón so quickly and attended by "local, international and academic VIPs" as part of a larger conference called "Turin 2008 – World Design Capital". Hopefully this particular Reventón, of which only 20 will be made, stays firmly placed on terra firma from now on.

      the italian supercar manufacturers seem to spend money and effort on the silliest things to attract attention, such as racing a jet, the donation of the lambo to the police, branded laptops, overdone commercials, and the like. the more they do these things, the more it appears to be a bit of a circus act that detracts from "class" that the brands are supposed to have.

        That does have an almost ironic ring to it.

      Lingotto, wherever that is? Is this a car blog or am I on msn? It is Fiats famous ex-factory building in Turin with a track on the roof! The track is more for 500s than Reventons. Get a clue autoblog.

        John, you beat me to it. Are these supposedly car guys on this blog? The Lingotto building is one of the coolest factories ever, and a must see for any petrolhead going to Turin.

      Reventón is like a so-so rural girl who put a lipstick on and now worshiped by all local farmers because they know no better.

      One has to be an idiot, a very rich idiot, to spend so much cash on a bumper job. After all, it is nothing but a Murcielago with a different bumper.

      This thing looks like the bastard love child of an F-22 fighter and a 1970 Hot Wheels Carabo.
