What is it?
It’s one of two things. Or it’s both. It’s either a Murcielago LP640 with an (in-house) bodykit or, as they’d prefer you to think, the Reventon is the Lamborghini Murcielago as pure art.
Either way, it’s fast – and it looks faster than the donor car.
Lamborghini took a straw poll of long-time customers and found they wanted something a little more exclusive than a Murcielago, so Lamborghini gave it to them.
It’s a new bodyshell - inspired by the Eurofighter, made in carbonfibre composite, designed by Lamborghini’s own designers and fitted in-house – bolted and glued on top of the proven Murcielago LP640 mechanicals.
They’ve done a brilliant job, too, and the angles and folds give the rear end, in particular, a coherence that the LP640 only wishes it had.
Another 10 horsepower takes the tally to 650 and, apart from ticking every box (including carbon brakes) on the option list that’s it for mechanical changes.
