One of the world’s rarest supercars will go on sale this summer in London. Lamborghini Reventón features in an exclusive H&H Classics sale to be held at London’s Motorexpo in Canary Wharf 11-17 June. Expected to achieve more than £1 million ($1.6 million), the Reventón being offered for private sale at Motorexpo was one of only 20 produced, and is thought to be the only example in the UK.
The Reventón was revealed to the public for the first time at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2007 and, despite commanding an asking price of €1 million ($1,3 million), which doesn’t include local taxes, all 20 examples were pre-sold before the car had even been unveiled.
The radical styling of the Lamborghini Reventón was inspired by the F-22 Raptor fighter jet, even the speedometer had a TFT liquid crystal display that had a mode to display vehicle speed like a digital altimeter. The car was built out of carbon fibre and came in only mid-opaque grey colour. The limited edition Reventón was the first Lamborghini to feature daytime running LEDs.
Powered by a 6.5-litre V12 engine producing 650 bhp, the Reventón can crack the 0-62 mph sprint in just 3.4 seconds and go on to a top speed of 211 mph.
As part of its Supercars and Superclassics sale, H&H will be presenting an Auburn Speedster replica as well as a number of vehicles from brands such as Ferrari, Pagani, Maserati, and Koenigsegg.
In addition to the cars being displayed by H&H, a number of leading automotive brands have already confirmed their attendance, including Bentley, BMW, Jaguar, Kia, Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz, Vauxhall and Volvo.
Motorexpo is open daily in Canary Wharf from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday, June 11 to Saturday, June 16 and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, June 17. Entry is free and the show’s organizers are expecting more than 425,000 visitors to enjoy this year’s event and visit Canary Wharf’s 200-plus shops, bars, cafes and restaurants. If you can’t make it to London, you can find Motorexpo in Toronto’s Brookfield place June 25-29 or in New York City at the World Financial Center September 16-21.
