Buying an exclusive car is no big deal these days, if you have right kind of money. but if you have to select from just 20 cars, is the height of exclusiveness. That is just what the Lamborghini Reventon was. Based on the normal LP640, limited to a production run of 20 and priced at one million euro, all 20 cars were snapped up even before the cars were made.

Automobile Lamborghini S.P.A or Lamborgini for short, is an automotive manufacturer based in Sant'Agata Bolognese, a small commune in central Italy. It was founded by the manufacturing magnate Ferruccio Lamborghini in 1963, and has changed ownership many times since then. Lamboghini cars always make perfect rivals for any race track finish line.

The Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 with its gloss primer gray paint, upgraded with V12 engine, and optional transparent engine cover, garnerd oohs and aahs when it made its debut in the 2006 Geneva Motor Show.

The Reventon was the most outrageous Lamborghini ever made. Its production was the most outrageous Lamborghini ever made. Its production was limited to 20 models and it was sold out before the cars were even made. It has the most powerful Lamborghini engine and it is the fastest Lamborghini out there. It has a powerful 640bhp V12 engine which enables it to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds, with a maximum speed over 340 km/h. The twelve-cylinder engine that powers the Reventón Roadster is a Lamborghini icon and the technical feature that defines the character of the car. It is one of the world’s most powerful naturally-aspirated engines. With a compression ratio of 11 : 1 and a displacement of 6496 cc (396.41 in3,) it generates 670 PS (493 kW) at 8,000 rpm. Its maximum torque of 660 Nm (487 lb-ft) kicks in at 6,000 rpm. The car resembles the Murcielago with its acute and obtuse angles.

The Tornado GR4 is a variable geometry, two-seat, day or night, all-weather attack aircraft, capable of delivering a wide variety of weapons. See the difference of Lamborghini Reventon, a car like a weapon.....!!!!!!
