2008 Lamborghini Reventon

2008 Lamborghini Reventon: Based on the Murcielago LP640, the Lamborghini Reventon will enjoy a limited run of only 20 units, and I was lucky enough to spend a day testing the only one currently in existence just outside of Bologna, Italy. How does this $1.4 million, 211 mile per hour supercar make the LP640 seem downright pedestrian by comparison? Read on to find out. The clutchless eGear transmission makes launches as easy as pressing your eager right foot to the floor, and once first gear engages, forward motion is immediate and addictive. 

60 mph comes in only 3.4 seconds (.4 seconds faster than the heavier LP640) just floor the accelerator, allow your body to be pressed into the firm seat, and enjoy the space-warping effects of blistering speed. The sensation of acceleration is so intensely satisfying that in spite of (or, perhaps because of) my test car’s artificially limited top speed of 80 mph, I found myself repeatedly blasting forward and stabbing the phenomenally powerful brakes, just to accelerate again and hear this car’s twelve pistons bang out their 8,000 RPM song.
