Italian supercar maker Lamborghinis latest highly limited edition and its most expensive road rocket ever was unveiled on Wednesday: a racer named after a killer bull,
the $1.4 million Reventn.
The street-legal car, shown at the Frankfurts International Auto show, was limited to only 20 units and is reported to have sold in only four days once word got out. Under the cars aggressive styling is a twelve-cylinder engine which can propel the car from 0 to 100 km/hr (62mph) in just 3.4 seconds and has a top speed of 340 km/hr (211 mph).
The cars exterior features an angular, arrow-like look made from hybrid steel and carbon-fiber combination, and electronically controlled rear spoiler.
On the inside, the instrument panel looks more like a fighter jet with an advanced TFT display capable of three modes. It even includes a G-Force Meter similar to those found in Formula One race cars.
The carmaker calls the Reventn a symbol of extreme exclusivity. The car uses the same engine found in the companys previous Murcielago LP640 model but with a completely new shell.
"However, the Reventn is the most extreme of them all, a true automotive superlative. Our designers at the Lamborghini Style Center took the technical base of the Murcielago LP640 and compressed and intensified its DNA, its genetic code," said Stephan Winkelmann, Lamborghini's chairman and CEO.
The car was named after the bull that killed Matador Felix Gzman in 1943.
