Though not accompanied with a glass case, maybe the 2008 Lamborghini Reventón should be. With only 20 of these jet-inspired creations ever made (in addition to the one for the Lamborghini museum), the Reventón certainly deserves consideration for the finest of art galleries in the world. When Lamborghini set out to design a performance car that made the Murcielago look tame, the end result was a V12, 48-valve, 6.5 liter rocket that could handle 211 mph with ease, stability and precision. Introducing the 650 HP 2008 Lamborghini Reventón.

The team at Lamborghini was inspired by the F-22 Raptor Jet in creating the Reventón, and its unique Gray Barra exterior paint mimics the steel of a fighter jet with its infused metallic particles. But despite its harsh metal appearance, this car is all carbon fiber and aluminum, which combined soft suede accents within its interior, offers a softer side to this artistic creation. As you nuzzle into the cockpit, an intricate array of instruments reminds you that this is no ordinary sports car. Indeed even a G-force meter tracks longitudinal and transverse acceleration and deceleration forces.

The Reventón was initially introduced at the 2007 Frankfurt Auto Show and has been anticipated by the automotive elite ever since who never seem to be satisfied in the realm of exotic performance. But this time may be different. Named after the bull that killed renowned bullfighter Felix Guzman in 1943, the Reventón may be the ultimate match even for these connoisseurs. But whether you decide to take the Reventón’s challenge in the driver’s seat or simply admire it on display, Lamborghini has no doubt created another exquisite masterpiece. They have left little room for disappointment once again.
