Welcome to AutoGuide.com’s Daily Diecast feature. Every day this week, we’ll be showcasing an extra special diecast model car from the web and showing you exactly why it’s awesome.
When you’ve got the raging bull fever and don’t have a bottomless bank account, this diecast model of a Lamborghini Reventón may do the trick.
In Spanish, “Reventón” means “small explosion” or “burst” and like most Lamborghinis, the name came from an infamous bull. This particular one was raised by Don Rodríguez and was remembered because in 1943, the bull killed well-known Mexican bullfighter Felix Guzmán.
When the Reventón debuted in 2007, it was the most expensive road vehicle at the time, topping out at $2.2 million until the Sesto Elemento was released in 2011. It is, however, one of the most exclusive Lamborghinis to own, as only 21 were made (20 were sold to the public and one lives in Lamborghini’s Museum).
Buying a trip to Italy to see the museum would be easy enough for those who can afford a ticket, however, should your funds be a little less free-flowing, this Reventón diecast model should calm your desire for a Lambo.
This sexy silver grey model is 1:24 to scale and offers hours of play for kids and adults alike. While it doesn’t contain a 6.5-liter V12 that would bring you to speeds up to 221 miles per hour, it does reach a top speed of about 6 mph, which is relatively quick in terms of RC cars.
This model car does not feature any opening doors, hoods or trunks, which may be a blessing in disguise. This means the possibility of having a broken model car is reduced because your kids won’t try to pry the doors from its hinges.
It does, however, offer a gorgeous exterior design that is an exact replica of the real deal complete with super angular character lines and the classic Lamborghini wedge design we all know and love.
