Lamborghini Reventon hits 222 mph: Click above to watch the video.

The Lamborghini Reventon is a very rare bird, indeed. There are only 20 copies in existence, and the asking price for the king of Lambos is a cool $1.4 million. For that kind of coin, owners have every right to expect world-class speed, but few will ever test the raging bull's ridiculous limits.

Admittedly, we now know for sure that one Reventon owner in Saudi Arabia has explored his Lamborghini's top end, though,and we have the video to prove it. Hit the jump to watch the Lamborghini Reventon as it reaches a top speed of 222 mph. The video is lousy and the camera stays fixated on the digital speedometer, but it's worth a watch if only for the reality that is road travel at 356 kmh. Hat tip to Ben!

      Sweet.


      But you wont eve catch me doing that...unless it on a drag street.
      • 5 Years Ago
      So why are the street lights passing by at a constant speed?...I call bs on this vid...
        • 5 Years Ago
        I second that as well. Street lights doesn't look like moving at a good speed..

      Another case of more money than sense.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Your on the wrong website silly.

      Every time a wealthy Arab shows off his car most of the comments on this site focus on how they don't deserve it and how we Americans give them the money to buy these cars.

      They have a product, we need it. It's that simple. And NO, they were not responsible for driving the price of oil up, it was the American speculators that made a fortune by manipulating the markets.

      Do you have any idea of the billions they spend on buying American defense products, engineering and goods? Also the fact that Arab Oil Nations took one of the biggest hits with the collapse of the American banking system.

      Anyways, we if stop using fuel for our cars tomorrow we still need oil for plastics. So next time you drink bottled water, you can curse them as well.

      Just a group of jealous haters.

      Oh yeah, we invaded Iraq to liberate the oil, opps, I meant Iraqis, remember....
        • 5 Years Ago
        They spend billions to buy American products because they can't make anything. They can't even take their own oil out of their own ground.

        Dirka dirka.

      Seriously disappointing. Like other commenters said, if this was a white dude, people would be focusing on the car, not the driver.

      saudi highway lamps are super tall!

      somebody do some trigonometry
      • 5 Years Ago
      Totally Bogus! a few caught it, watch the street lights never change speed as they pass as he supposedly goes from 200kmh to 356. they would have been flying by! And no way that car bounces at much as that camera man showed. Reminds me of a car on a trailor kinda bouncing. Wheels spinning free to simulate the speed?
        • 5 Years Ago
        What if light have long distance between, like where i live (las vegas)
        and he started at the high speed also
        • 5 Years Ago
        Maybe the distance between the streetlights was just changing at the same rate as the dude was accelerating?


        ...no, it's probably fake.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Truly theirs is a land of kings.

      No seriously.

        • 5 Years Ago
        too many haters in this thread.

        AND it not your money! You bought something from saudi so its theirs! It's just like the money you gave to the local supermarket in exchange for food!

      • 5 Years Ago
      you guys are haters. If this guy was american or someone else you would hail them and appreciate his car.
      His from the royal family, he doesn't need your money he got his own business.
      As for the oil price, they are not the ones responsible for the sky rocketing price. Ask you POS former president idiot Bush and how much he made during his 8 years.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Brainwashed americans, so the owners of TEXACO, EXXON, SHELL are arabs too, yeah and the OPEC forces them to make trillions of dollars every year for distributing oil in a monopoly
        • 5 Years Ago
        Oil prices are controled through Opec, who controls the cost of barrels of Oil. Opec is mostly controled by the middle easterners who own the oil.
