Lamborghini Reventón 

  • $1M built in Italy
  • 2007-2009
  • 641 HP 6.5L
  • 221 mph
Better air supply is partially responsible for the ten additional horsepower for the Reventón, bringing the total to 641bhp at 8000rpm, with the rev-limiter still set at 8200rpm.
by EVO
The Reventon handles slow-speed duties with nary a hiccup, thanks to the tractable V-12's 487 lb-ft of torque.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Performance

In one appearance mode, the speedometer is displayed as a pictograph of a road with numerals, while the tachometer takes the form of a luminous column to represent the rpm.
by www.insideline.com (Dec, 2012)
The tach's two needles instantaneously jump upward past 8000 rpm, and the digital speedometer readout changes so rapidly that not one kph seems to be missed.
by MotorTrend (Oct, 2007)
Physically, it remains one of the true heavyweights of the supercar world, yet despite its heaviness and feeling of utter massiveness out on any road, I have always liked the Murciélago’s way of handling its power and torque.

Styling

It's fun to look at, and it looks fast, too.

The Reventón looks great Until I actually ‘locked horns’ with the Lamborghini Reventón, I was pretty sure that there was little of any real significance in this special edition Murciélago LP640.

Powertrain

The Reventon's engine is displayed beneath a louvered panel of glass in the rear deck.
by www.insideline.com (Dec, 2012)
The sweet-spot for the best mix of torque and power really doesn’t come until above 5000rpm, when the baffles open and the engine begins to bellow to nape-prickling effect.
by EVO
The engine's sonorous growl and the exhaust's deep bellow overwhelm the cabin as you're pinned in your seat.

Engine

More horsepower has been coaxed from the 6.5-liter DOHC Lamborghini V12, bringing its output to 650 horsepower.
by www.insideline.com (Dec, 2012)
The air intake integrated into the rocker sill beneath the driver's door feeds the V12's oil cooler, while the one on the passenger side helps energize the flow of air through the underbody aero diffuser.
by www.insideline.com (Dec, 2012)
The second is more in line with the Reventon's exterior and is innovative in the way it informs the driver of engine functions and speed.
by MotorTrend (Oct, 2007)

Handling

The four-wheel independent suspension has double wishbones, electronically adjustable hydraulic shocks, anti-roll bars, and anti-dive and anti-squat characteristics.
by MotorTrend (Oct, 2007)
The flat-bottom steering wheel is thick and nice to grip.
by MotorTrend (Oct, 2007)
The steering is light and responsive, with quick, even turn in.
