Lamborghini Reventon spot 600x333 at Sights and Sounds: Lamborghini Reventon

Lamborghini has already given the Aventador two very special limited editions with the Veneno coupe and roadster. But impressive though they certainly are, they have both failed to cause as big a stir as Lamborghini Reventon, launched years ago as the ultimate expression of what a Murcielago can be.

It is a pretty rare beast, this Lamborghini Reventon, with only 20 customer units built. Back when it was new, each Reventon cost nearly $1.2 million. These days you can’t find a second-hand version for less $2 million.

Here’s a pristine Reventon cruising around Monte Carlo, captured by BrianZuk:
