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. Only 20 Reventóns were built.

History

Lamborghini first showed the Reventón to the public at the 2007 Frankfurt Auto Show. Like many other 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.

Engine and transmission

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.

Performance

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).

Reventón Roadster

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.

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

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 3.4 seconds, which is the same as the standard Reventón.
