Lamborghini Reventón To Sell at Motorexpo

Psssss.... fancy owning a Lamborghini Reventón? Yes?

Psssss.... fancy owning a Lamborghini Reventón? Yes? Now is your chance then, as H&H Classics is selling one of only twenty created via a private auction at the 2012 London Motorexpo. Just be in Canary Wharf from June 11th to June 17th 2012. The only other requirement is that you have deep pockets and long arms, as the Reventón is expected to sell for £1,000,000. Actually that is cheap, compared to the likely future cost of a litre of fuel.

The Lamborghini Reventón was revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2007. It is powered by a 6.5-litre V12 engine that produces 650bhp, and propels the carbon-fibre Reventón to sixty-two miles-per-hour in only 3.4 seconds. That is the time it took me to decide that I want one. Top speed is 211mph, which is the number of years required for me to save the £1,000,000 to buy it. I will clearly have to wait for the H&H sale in the year 2223.

The alternative is that I invest in a 'cheaper' lot. More affordable prospects include the Auburn Speedster replica – plus a Ferrari, Pagani, Maserati, and Koenigsegg. What a crushing disappointment. As I cannot have the Reventón I was hoping for a Mondeo Estate.
