Staggeringly expensive, one of only 20 Lamborghini Reventóns will be auctioned this summer in the U.K. with an expected selling price of at least €1 million.
Collectors will be taking notice this summer — only 20 of the special supercars were produced. With a 0-62 mph (100 km/h) sprint time of 3.4 seconds powered by a 6.5-liter V12 engine making 650 hp, the Reventón isn’t like other Lambos and will be a shining start this summer at the Motorexpo in London where the auction will be held.
“The appearance, let alone sale, of a car as rare as the Lamborghini Reventón is sure to attract a large number of supercar enthusiasts and collectors to Motorexpo this summer,” said Graeme Carver, Motorexpo CEO.
Revealed to the public for the first time in 2007 at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the Italian rarity is the most expensive to bear the brand’s bull badge to far. With an original sticker price roughly equal to $1.5 million, there hasn’t been another from the automaker to compare.
To the undiscerning eye, it might look almost exactly like other brand models, and to an extent that would be right. Then again, that misconception doesn’t reach very far. Yes, many of the parts (including the V10 engine) are sourced from the Murciélago, but that’s hardly the issue for anyone with an exotic car collection.
With fighter jet styling that includes matte gray paint, unique wheels and angular headlights. In fact, almost every polygon on the car has a new shape, including the twin inverse hood scoops and the rear end made to mimic a jet’s afterburners.
Again, for the less scrupulous auto exotica collector, the Aventador has similarly sharp lines for less coin, but it still can’t come close to the same scarcity.
If you happen to be in the area, stop by on June 11 when the auction starts to get a glimpse, it might be the only chance you get.
