Around this time two years ago, Lamborghini unveiled the Reventon. Although criticized in some corners – including this one – for being comparably overpriced in light of the upgrades over Lamborghini’s Murcielago, the Reventon’s exclusivity and stop-you-in-your-tracks design led to some success. Now we have the Lamborghini Reventon Roadster. Rather extreme, we must admit, the Reventon in topless form still generates 661 horsepower, accelerates to 60mph in 3.4 seconds as it makes progress toward a 205mph top speed.
Lamborghini’s boss, Stephan Winkelmann, says the Reventon Roadster “adds an extra emotional component” to the most extreme car in the brand’s history. Yeah, as if the buyers of the regular Reventon weren’t a bit emotional over the whole thing anyway.
Lambo Reventon Roadster buyers will be asked to pony up €1,100,000, today’s equal of $1,601,431 USD. That’s way too much money to pay for a car with the Lamborghini Reventon Roadster’s capabilities. However, there will be about 20 of Lamborghini’s “friends and collectors” willing to shell out.
