Final Lamborghini Reventon Arrives in U.K.

Britain has received its first, and last Lamborghini Reventón this week as a mystery customer drove off with number 20 of 20 in the world from Lamborghini's Sant'Agata-based factory, close to Bologna. The man had ordered his vehicle from the official Midlands dealer, Lamborghini Birmingham.

Lamborghini Birmingham sales manager Dominic Mulvey commented after escorting the man to Bologna: "Our client was understandably delighted. Lamborghini's President and CEO, Stephan Winkelmann, personally presented the Reventón to its new owner who then drove off in his new car."

Reventón is an ultra-limited-edition Lambo with a V12 engine thrusting out a good 650bhp (485kW) for a top velocity of over 211mph (340km/h). These cars will be about as rare as a V12 supercar from Uzbekistan. Those who parted with their €1 million for the privilege of being one of 20 aren't expected on public roads often, with most planning to keep their treasures in the garage. Not this guy. He is apparently committed to driving his car as often as possible.
