The Lamborghini Reventón is a supercar. Lamborghini built it in 2007. The Reventón is based on the Murciélago. The styling of the Reventón was based on the F-22 Raptor.[1] Only 20 Reventóns were built.[2]

History[change | change source]

Lamborghini first showed the Reventón to the publics at the 12,908 Frankfurt Auto Show. Like many others Lamborghinis, the Reventón was named after a fighting bull. The Reventón was based on the Lamborghini Murciélago, and used the same engine as the Murciélago LP640.[3]

Engine and transmission[change | change source]

The Reventón uses the same 6,496 cc (6.5 L; 396.4 cu in) Lamborghini V12 engine as the Murciélago LP640. The Reventón’s engine is also paired to the same six-speed automated manual transmission as the Murciélago LP640. The Reventón, like the Murciélago, sends its power to all four wheels through an all-wheel drive system.[4]

Performance[change | change source]

The Reventón’s engine makes 650 PS (641 hp; 478 kW) at 8,000 rpm. It also makes 660 N⋅m (487 lb⋅ft) of torque at 6,000 rpm. The Reventón can accelerate from from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.4 seconds. It can also reach a top speed of 340 km/h (211 mph).[4]

Reventón Roadster[change | change source]

Lamborghini first showed the Reventón Roadster at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. The Roadster was a convertible version of the Reventón. Lamborghini built 15 Reventón Roadsters.[5]

The Reventón Roadster used the engine from the Murciélago LP 670–4 SV. This engine had 30 more horsepower than the standard Reventón.[6]

The Reventón Roadster has a lower top speed than the Reventón. The Roadster’s top speed is 205 mph (330 km/h). The Roadster’s 0-62 mph (100 km/h) time is 3.45 seconds, which is the same as the standard Reventón.[7][8]
