    The name "Reventon" just sounds lame for a souped-up Lambo. I know it's the name of the bull that killed a toreador, but it still sounds lame.

    It's a nice idea, but a little gimmicky. Actual market value aside, if I had a choice of this or the Veyron, there's no question which one I'd buy.

    I would prefer a Honda Accord to this monstrosity.

    I almost regurgitated my bacon egg and cheese breakfast sandwich after seeing this.

    I don`t see what is so special about this car. Just looks like an old stealth airplane inspired version of the regular Lambo.

    The rear end is one of the ugliest I've seen.

    Dragon, wouldn't that be enough for a cash-heavy person to buy it? The fact that it looks like a rolling razor blade?

    I'm still waiting for Andre Yew's pro opinion on this stuff [​IMG]

    Apparently it is enough! [​IMG]

    I didn`t read that closely, but I think they said that all of them are already sold.

    Also it said that the design was based on the latest, fastest plane technology, so I guess they were thinking of the stealth. The funny part is there is no reason for stealth design in a car (unless it can hide from police radar [​IMG] ) and the new stealths don`t use that cubic design anymore.

    No fucking way this things' 1.4 million (and number I've been hearing about is 1.6 million)! I mean, it's a Murci with a body kit and 10 more hp! That's worth the 1.1-1.3 million dollar difference? I don't think so.

    That price is insane. I don't understand people who would spend 100k+ for a car. Ridiculous.

    Most of the truly awesome cars are north of the $100K mark, so it's not that ridiculous. Over $1M, that's a different story. So far, the only two that are worth that kind of money are the McLaren F1 and the Veyron.

    So basically for my $1MM I get a body kit and 20hp. Sweet.

    You could get an Enzo AND a Carrera GT AND a Aston Martin Vantage AND a a Ferrari 430 convertible for nice weather for the price of this thing. And 2 of those are arguably better cars. The entirely carbon fiber exterior is somewhat intriguing, but even if it drops 300 pounds off a standard Murcielago I think it still checks it at over 3000 lbs.

    The only thing it really offers at that price is exclusivity, and for that reason I'm sure it'll still sell. There's gotta be 20 insane Lambo fanatics (14 of which I'm sure live in Dubai) who'll plunk down for this monstrosity.

    I live across the street from Lamborghini of Houston, and I could honestly care less whether I see this car sitting out front. Lamborghini is the Bentley (modern Bentley) of sportcars...nothing but expensive automobiles for the rich and pretentious. The only 2 Lambos that grab my attention are the Gallardo's and the old Miura's.

    I wouldn't kick it out of bed, but it's ridiculous in conception. Something Kayne West or P. Diddy would drive up in.

    Agreed, I'd rather have an Enzo and the Porsche Carrera GT supercar than this ostentatious eyesore.
