Lamborghini Reventon Roadster

Italian carmaker Lamborghini presents the Revent Roadster, a model capable of incredible power and uncompromising performance. Under the hood it hides a 6.5-liter 12-cylinder capable of developing 670 PS. This output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds and to reach a top speed of 330 km/h. Each model will be sold for 1.1 million euro and deliveries will begin in October 2009. All Lamborghinis are created with an avant-garde approach to design. The Revent Roadster is derived from the same creative thinking as the coupe. The driver and passenger seating positions are low and sporty, separated by a substantial central tunnel. The design of the roadster is quite distinct from that of the Coupe. The engine bonnet is virtually horizontal and a total of four windows made from glass provide a view of the mighty V12 in all its technical elegance. The body shell is made almost entirely from carbon fiber elements, with sheet steel used only for the outer door skins. Designers have created a new shade of matt grey capped Revent Grey exclusively for the special edition. The interior of the model conveys to same powerful deign as the exterior. The driver can switch between two modes at the touch of a button. The interior displays uncompromisingly clean craftsmanship and features a host of carbon fiber applications. The carmaker has equipped the Revent Roadster with full options. Lamborghini introduced the all-wheel drive principle with the Diablo. All the output is being transferred to the wheels through a 6-speed sequential manual transmission. The Revent Roadster keeps the extreme power of its engine in check with a running gear layout derived directly from motorsport. The open two-seat car runs on 18-inch wheels and the tires measure 245/35 on the front axle and 335/30 on the rear one. Its performance limits are extremely high, yet effortless to control. The capabilities of Lamborghini also include the independent development of the complete electronic platform. All units are built in Italy with high levels of quality.
