Lamborghini Reventon - Click above for high-res image gallery

Just four short months ago a rumor surfaced that Lamborghini would be making a topless version of its hottest model, the F22-inspired Reventon. Word is that today Lambo is showing off its most expensive ever ragin' bull to a super select cabal of people so wealthy that we'll never understand. Based on the Murcielago, the original carbon fiber Reventon was limited to 20 units (plus one for the museum) and cost just about $1 million. And therein lies the problem. As a Reventon owner, you have a 19 out of 6.5 billion chance of running into another person driving the same car as you -- not exclusive enough.

This is where the new drop top Rev comes in. Limited to just nine examples makes the new Lambo more than twice as exclusive. As its price will climb to $1.6 million, it had better be. Besides losing the roof, the Reventon Roadster will be more powerful than its hard-top cousins, as the convertible will get the LP670-4 SV's stonking 6.5-liter V12 good for 670 horsepower and 487 lb-ft of torque. You know, we could get used to this whole filthy rich thing.

      Never give a sucker an even break.

      Jonny Lieberman, please learn the difference between 'it's' the contraction for 'it is', and the possessive pronoun 'its'. Jesus, you are a professional writer after all.

      you people do not want to know the low, filthy, absolute nasty things I would do to own this car.

      I would let elton john make a playground outta my ass for this car -- that's how awesome it is.

      So will this be in the next Transformer movie, and would it be an Autobot or a Decepticon?

      The reventon is the biggest ripoff in automotive history. It basically takes a murcielago, gives it a bodykit, some light engine mods, a new dashboard and tweaked interior and a new name. Then it triples if not quadruples the price. Not that it's not a nice car, it's cool. But it's just scarcity value and, as most things marketed on scarcity, makes an idiot out of it's owner (like the big wig in chechenia that owns one).

      The drop top will take the same equation and alter the multiplier. My point still stands.

      If I were in an economic position to buy one of these, and I might at some point in my life, I would never, ever, ever, EVER, buy this over the standard murcielago. In pearl white with red leather interior. Now that's a cool car, not this stealth wannabe.

      Compared to the reventon the Bugatti is a good deal.

      Why is there such a disparity between the HP and lb-ft numbers? Usually they are closer to parity. I've noticed that Mercedes usually has torque numbers that exceeds the HP.

        Without looking up the data, I'm guessing the engine in the Lambo is very oversquare. The short strokes of the pistons reduce the engines ability to produce torque but allow the engine to run higher RPMs. The MB's engine is likely closer to square.

        I think it has something to do with the Lambo being able to rev much higher than Mercs... Not quite sure though.

      Wow, Lamborghini and Bugatti have gotten this ripping rich people off down to a science.
      Don't get me wrong, I love the Reventon and I am happy that I have actually seen one in real life and a few Veyrons also.
      However, $600,000 extra for a removable top and a few extra horsepower is ridiculous.
      Especially for as crappy a top as Lamborghini makes for the Murcielago now.
      Considering the rarity of the Reventon and the price I am sure few if any of their owners will ever drive them anyway so they could put a 100 hp engine in the car and it would not matter.

      Too cartoonish..........

      Long Live Ferrari.

      How does it convert to the Batpod?
      • 5 Years Ago
      They could have at least beat Veyron's top speed while they were ripping billionaires off for 1.6 million.

      I mean, at least that would be good for a conversation piece and bragging rights. So you can say that you have the fastest production car in the world... along with only 9 other people.
