Lamborghini must be using the same crystal ball as Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne as the Italian automaker maker is tipped to be developing yet another over-the-top supercar. If reports are correct, Lamborghini is readying an open-air version of its F-22-inspired Reventon supercar.
The Reventon coupe made its debut at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show, with apparently enough interest in the car for Lamborghini to green light a roadster version. Only 20 Reventon Coupes were ever produced, with even fewer roadsters expected to be made.
According to AutoWeek, the Reventon Roadster will use the same powerplant as the recently debuted Lamborghini LP 670-4 SuperVeloce. That means a 670 horsepower 6.5L V12 will be mounted mid-ship, giving the Reventon Roadster a 20 horsepower advantage over its fixed-roof sibling.
And, thanks to its shorter production run, expect the Reventon Roadster to retail for even more than the coupe-variant. The original Reventon sold for about $1.6 million, with the roadster version expected to command a few hundred-thousand dollar premium over that price point.
