£1 million roadster leaks out ahead of Frankfurt launch
10 September 2009

Pictures of the exclusive new Lamborghini Reventon roadster have leaked out ahead of the car’s unveiling at the Frankfurt motor show next week.

The reports accompanying the leaked pictures claim the styling is inspired by jet-engined aircraft and the body panels are made from carbonfibre. A hard-top version of the Reventon was seen as Frankfurt two years ago.

Inside, it is reported to get an Alcantara leather interior with lots of carbonfibre trim. It rides on 18-inch lightweight alloy wheels.

Power is likely to come from the 6.5-litre V12 engine it shares with the Murcielago. In the Reventon, it is expected to produce 641bhp and 487lb ft of torque. It should be mated to a six-speed ‘box and be equipped with all-wheel drive. It is expected to get from 0-62mph in 3.4secs and reach a top speed of 211mph.

Production is rumoured to be limited to just 20 units, with an expected price tag of more than £1 million.

I love Lamborghini and always have since i had a poster of a countach on my wall as a kid but how do they justify the price tag?

I know it's limited etc but it seems like a lot of money for a LP640 with a bodykit.

I'd still love one but over a Veyron or a one-77? I don't think so.

I don't like 2 seater cars but this car would be in my collection if I was mega rich :-)

"Leaked".

Yeah Yeah Yeah.

In the cockpit, you must be like in an opera to listen the mythic V12!

Waaaaaoooooooooo!!!

Now i only need the lottery to come up trumps.

If this is a leak, could someone please plug it! These images could have been created by anyone proficient with a graphic software.

If this Reventon is for real, then Lamborghini is really tastelessly milking the Murcielago for all its worth. Would certainly take the SV, or even the standard model, over this if I had the means.

Photos and a full report were published a few months ago, I think it may have been Top Gear Showing a state of the art Digital dashboard

That was probably the regular version.

Awesome car, but they could have given it 700bhp+. I guess the Murcielago replacement will have in excess of 700bhp, should be awesome.

I'll have one, thanks. :-)

Sharp!!!

I'd spend my jackpot money on one.
