An ultra-rare Lamborghini inspired by a fighter jet has gone on sale – for a whopping #850,000.
The Lamborghini Reventon is the most expensive model ever built by the Italian supercar company, with just 20 rolling off the production line between 2007 and 2008.
Engineers used the F22-Raptor for inspiration, taking styling cues from the fighter jet’s angular shape, sharp edges and stealthy paint job.
They even fitted the interior with a G-force meter to give the driver the feeling they are in the cockpit of a mach two aircraft.
Lamborghini’s engineers used a massive 6.5-litre V12 engine which develops 650bhp for the car – giving it a 0-62mph time of 3.4 seconds and a top speed “in excess” of 211mph.
Supercar dealer SuperVettura has now caused a stir among investors looking for a blue chip investment after taking delivery of the UK’s only model.
The Surrey-based specialists are advertising the 2008 Reventon, which cost #800,000 new and has covered just 1,000 miles, for #849,000.
Tommy Wareham, from SuperVettura, said: “The Lamborghini Reventon cannot be compared to anything else produced by the famous sports cars maker.
“Its exclusivity is second to no other car in the range – it is simply exquisite, encompassing everything Lamborghini stands for.”
Just 20 Lamborghini Reventons were built between 2007 and 2008 with the entire batch sold to the company’s favourite customers before it was even officially announced.
