The 2009 Lamborghini Reventón was a big deal when it was introduced at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show. At that point in time, the mid-engine supercar was the most expensive ever to come from the Italian automaker with a price tag of $2 million.
In addition to being expensive, it was also exclusive. Only 20 were made for sale to the public across the globe.
The exterior of the 2009 Lamborghini Reventón was carbon fiber and available in only one color: a flat matte gray described as mid-opaque and lacking the usual shine associated with high-end supercars.
The 2009 Lamborghini Reventón was the first Lamborghini to incorporate daylight running lights into the headlights. Seven LEDs (light-emitting diodes] are located along side the bi-Xenon main headlights. They are activated whenever the car is in movement.
Special heatproof LEDs had to be used for the rear of the Lamborghini Reventón because of the high temperatures produced there. They are used for the indicator and hazard lights, stoplights and rear lights with a triple arrow optical effect.
Lamborghini demonstrates a mastery of deriving function from even its most beautiful pieces. The turbine design of the wheels serves to keep the ceramic disk brakes cooled. And you just thought they look cool.
The interior technology of the 2009 Lamborghini Reventón is compelling. The instrument panel is made up of three TFT liquid crystal displays. Each features two different display modes.
The structure surrounding the instruments is derived from a solid aluminum block. It gets additional protection from a carbon fiber casing.
The seats of the Lamborghini Reventón are a mixture of exclusive materials. Some sections are covered in black leather while others are swathed in brown Alcantara.
The Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 serves as the source of almost all of the mechanical elements of the Lamborghini Reventón. The V12 engine spools out 650 horsepower and 487 lb. ft. of torque. It has a 0-60 time of 3.4 seconds.
