Lamborghini Reventón Roadster Commercial
The Lamborghini Reventón (Spanish pronunciation: [Reben'ton]) is a
mid-engine sports car that debuted at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show. It is
the most powerful and expensive Lamborghini road car to date, costing one
million euros (~US$1.25 million, or ~£840,000).
The official press release stated that only 20 vehicles would be released
to the public,with one additional car (marked as 0/20) produced for the
Lamborghini Museum.Although early rumors indicated the total number would
actually be 100, each Reventón is clearly stamped with its number in the
sequence of 20 between the driver's and passenger's seats.
Despite the exterior being new,almost all the mechanical elements
(including the engine) are sourced directly from the Murciélago LP640.
According to the official press release, the Reventón exterior styling was
inspired by the "the fastest airplanes". To emphasize this, Lamborghini
staged a race between a Reventón and a Panavia Tornado fighter plane.
Nissan R35 GT-R chasing McLaren F1 GTR at Thruxton race track
http://www.auto-journals.com A few gentle laps on a wet Thruxton on the
morning of the Wilton House supercar day.
Neither car being pushed to anywhere near their limits, it wasn't a "race",
not even a track day (nobody wore helmets), but fun to see nevertheless!

McLaren F1 vs Bugatti Veyron vs Veyron SuperSport acceleration from 325kmh
A comparison of top end acceleration between the McLaren XP5 and the
Bugatti Veyron and
supersport used by autocar.
Despite having only 620hp, the Macca keeps up reasonably well with both Veyrons, and the 1200hp
supersport's topend acceleration is not much faster than the 1000hp base Veyron's.
(IGNORE THE Veyron
Supersport Speed:270kmh at the end. My analysis software ran a bug)
Note: Both Veyrons have
been on ehra lessein like the Mclaren. But in both cases, they engaged
TOPSPEED MODE. This increases the topend acceleration incredibly (look at
their GPSes on the topgear vids).
However since TOPSPEED MODE isnt practical on the road (due to no braking,
turning and completely stopping before activation), handling mode is used
in this comparison.
It is interesting to note that despite having over 1000hp++, more than 350+
than the mclaren , the Veyron's (even the SS) aerodynamics
are so poor, it relies on topspeed mode as a crutch and cant even pull
ahead of the mclaren f1 topend otherwise.
