Latest Lamborghini a real head-turner

 

Luxury car maker Lamborghini has revealed its “most extreme” model yet - the Reventon Roadster.

The Reventon Roadster is limited to just 20 units and will cost €1.1 million (NZ$2,296,500) when it goes on sale next month.

Powering the Roadster is a 6.5-litre V12 with 661bhp, providing a 0-100ph time of 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 330kph.

“The Reventon is the most extreme car in the history of the brand,” said Lamborghini boss Stephan Winkelmann. “The new Roadster adds an extra emotional component to our combined technological expertise; it unites superior performance with the sensual fascination of open-top driving."

The Roadster has the same footprint as the coupe but weighs 25kg more, at 1690kg. Behind the two seats are two hidden pop-up bars that deploy in a few hundredths of a second if the car rolls.

The Roadster is painted a new shade of matt grey called Reventon Grey.
