$1.4m Lamborghini Reventon for friends and collectors only

Lamborghini ReventonLamborghini Reventon is the most powerful and expensive Lamborghini mid-engined sports car that costs almost $1.4 million. Lamborghini will produce just 20 of these cars for sale to friends and collectors.

The instrument panel in the Reventon comprises three TFT liquid crystal displays (LCDs) with two different display modes. The instruments are housed in a structure milled from a solid aluminum block, protected by a carbon fiber casing. The G-Force-Meter is completely new and it is one of the talking points of the Reventón. It displays the dynamic drive forces, longitudinal acceleration during acceleration and braking, as well as transversal acceleration around bends. These forces are represented by the movement of an indicator on a graduated 3D grid depending on the direction and intensity of the acceleration. Formula One teams also use a similar device to analyze dynamic forces.

The Reventon is named after a fighting bull according to recent Lamborghini tradition.
