I SAW A Lamborghini Reventon!!PICS

I saw a Reventon delivered at one of my local exotic car dealers. I took some pics of it as it was being inspected and prepped in the garage then i took some pics of it in the showroom where it replaced a red bugatti Veyron ( sold to a lucky guy).

Its cool looking, kinda looks like it could be a batmobile or be in the next transformers but from a design standpoint its ugly and a bit tacky. but i guess lambo is trying to get back to its radical designs since their murci and gallardo have been relatively conservatively designed. Neverthe less it looked aggressive!
there was also a white gallardo LP-560 which was very nice.

anyways this car in particular had a burnt out rear tail light, and a few paint and wheel imperfections which i was told but didnt see.

since 20 are made (all sold out) the MSRP "is" $1.4mill but this dealer is selling this one for $2.4mill

I posted a few pics that i took with my cell phone, I also have a video of it starting and driving around but I will try to post that later some how ( its too big).

That looks bad a**. It had paint imperfections and a burnt out tail light from the factory? weird...

and what I don't get is if they are all sold how is the dealer selling this one?

Yea i dont know how they got this one either. maybe they were one of the ones who bought it or got it off someone who pre ordered it.

this dealer has had many exotics like: a couple McClaren F1's, F50's,Enzo's, 3 million dollar classic ferraris, a couple bugatti veyrons, a 30 million dollar mercedes race car from the '30's, Saleen S7, Viper GTR, Rolls Royce Drophead, Spyker C8,F40 ( with 125 original miles!)...all this along with your run off the mill bentley's, Astons, and ferrari 360's and 430's.

A couple mclaren f1s is an impressive feat. Usually you get those from mclaren and then they customize them for you. the F50 and Enzo are also a bit surprising as well as th bugatti. Its funny how these car manufacturers say that their cars sell, but the avg joe (with the right amount of capital) can walk in and buy one. Makes you wonder about exclusivity... Although I do know a guy (he used to be the head of ferrari NA, i think), he ownes an enzo, f40, f50, 360 etc... didn't seem very hard for him to get them.

That Lambo looks like it came from the same folks that designed the F-117 Nighthawk. You suppose all those angles might just deflect radar when traveling at speed??

There goes that saying... it's not how much money you have... it's who you know.

I really love the lines of that Lambo ... just something you don't see every day. I tend to like the connection to a "fighter jet". I can see the parallel.

Nice pictures & thanks for sharing!

Nick and Kabel...thaks a lot for making me drool all over my keyboard while staring at it and readin the Edmunds review

reading the review is like the first time you ever laid your eyes on porno magazine

this is so true....
qoute taken from edmunds:

A Day That Dreams Are Made of
When we were young and had posters of supercars on our bedroom walls, we nurtured the standard-issue twin dreams of becoming a fighter pilot and of one day driving a Lamborghini. Today we're going to do both.

The mag article I read said they did, indeed, take the design team to study a couple of stealth fighters before they put the first line down.

unklekracker yea this is at the los gatos silicon valley auto group. if your in the area go check it out


I know of a guy who bought a red McLaren f1 and an enzo from this dealer. The Mclared was previously owned by Mario Andredi and had his signature on the sun visor. price 1.92 million. Enzo was 1.35 million.

I guess for people who cant be on the waiting list for these exotics they pay the premium price to get it.

This other guy bought a black veyron from here and thought the spoiler was broken and was ********************in to everyone saying that ooh my 1.4mill car is broken, not knowing that the key in the special slot next to the seat brings it down.

Money can buy exotics but it cant buy taste. some people who buy these cars buy them for status and for a place in their convo where they can say hey I have a veyron or reventon. they cant drive or appreciate them.

for these people manufacturers can bring out ugly poorly designed cars, hype them up and sell them for alot. Porsche is doing this with the panamera. people will buy it regardless of how ugly it looks.

I might just go there after work but this time I won't bring my check coz' I know it's going to bounce

I wonder, how many times do I have to do laundry, cook and clean the toilet in order for my wife to say that "I deserve a car like this"
