It’s a Lamborghini Reventon

A few readers have noticed the new car running in my header and wonder what it was. Even before this blog got redesigned by Nate Whitehilll, I have been using a Pagani Zonda F for the header image. The new car is the 2008 Lamborghini Reventon. Congrats to Steven Truong and Affiliate Unleashed for getting it right. For those who thought it was a Ferrari or Bugatti, shame on you.

The Lamborghini Reventon is the wildest Lamborghini ever produced. Only 20 examples will be made and all have been spoken for. The price, if you have to know, is 1 Million Euro (plus taxes). That works out to $1.4 million CAD and probably $1 Billion US with the US exchange rate going into the toilet. The above photo was taken at the Lamborghini museum. Here are some more photos and a couple of videos.

  1. I thought the logo looked like a lambo, but the front end design threw me. I was all over the place.

    1. Wow man those are some cool looking cars!

      1. I wonder how long it’s gonna be until John’s monthly income will cover a Lambo ๐Ÿ˜‰

        1. Jason says:

          I wouldn’t want one. Cause then I would have anything else to go after in life. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Ok maybe I do want one. Really bad!

          1. HeHe nah there’s no limit to people’s wants not even yours.

          2. blackysky says:

            Only 20 ahahha that’s crazy !! what they put inside this baby ahaha.. I wonder who will be those 20 lucky one… sounds like an auction lool ๐Ÿ˜Ž

          3. Steven says:

            @Jason, I think his real income comes fairly close to that, just not his blog income.

            I wish I had one.

            Thanks for the plug yet again John ^_~

        2. What would it cost, like $8,000 a month for your car payment on this Lambo? Pretty steep for a ride.

          1. John Chow says:

            Lamborghini does not accepting financing. Cash only. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

            $8,000 a month might pay for the insurance.

          2. Yea, I revised that amount. So, only about 48 more months in a row like the last one and you can get one.

        3. Michael Talk says:

          It is a great car, but I would get one even if I was Bill Gates with the fat wallet.
          One of my favourite hobbies is off road holidays so a SUV or a 4WD would be good.

        4. PinoyTech says:

          Lol. Man… I can’t wait to see that

        5. I have to revise my original guess on the payment for this beast. It would be more like $29k per month not $8k.

      2. BuzzBop.com says:

        Damn! I just started my blog using the Bugatti Veyron, which is supposed to be the most powerful, most expensive, fastest street-legal production car in existence. I wonder if this Lambo puts the Bugatti in second place.

        1. I don’t think so. The Bugatti Veyron has 1000 hp and tops out at 253 mph. It also costs $1.7 million US.

    2. I actually didn’t even saw the new header image, when you first mentioned I was still seeing the old header.

      Damn I love this new devil, and more like because i like that type of color that doesn’t reflect (same color i have my ducati monster).

    3. Yeah, it threw me until i remembered I saw the car on Top Gear a while ago ๐Ÿ™‚

    4. That’s what I said, I thought it was a Ferrari.

  2. Tha Guru says:

    thatยดs the right car for my dadยดs son. ๐Ÿ‘ฟ

    1. HeHe really? I don’t think so…

      My dad’s son would appreciate it much more ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. blackysky says:

        sorry I put my name on the vip list lool ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜ˆ ๐Ÿ˜ˆ ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

        1. LoL we got a problem here guys ๐Ÿ˜› Let’s all run a contest then and see who wins it ๐Ÿ˜€

          1. Yeah, if John gave out this car as a contest, I am sure it’d be the best promotion ever! ๐Ÿ‘ฟ ๐Ÿ‘ฟ ๐Ÿ‘ฟ

  3. xBrainยฎ says:

    Oh my Goodness !! This Lambo is so nice man !! I think that you can’t afford it John !!
    By the way, I nominate your blog at the IblogCup competition, go and check it !!

    JohnChow on Blog Contest will fight with the Seomoz blog…

    Who will win…?? ๐Ÿ™‚ John, do vote my blog in the contest too !!
    xBrain & xBrain

  4. Tyler Ingram says:

    how can you mistaken that for not being a Lamborghini?

    I like it! For those who thought it was a Ferrari or anything other than an Lamborghini should be shot! lol

    1. Etienne Teo says:

      The Lamborghini is just so different from others.

  5. Simon says:

    I like the reverse shot.

    1. Agreed. The brake lights/turn signals rock.

  6. Stephen says:

    You mean people actually got that wrong? ๐Ÿ™„

    1. I guess it hasn’t been out that long. I didn’t even know about it. It debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September. I got stumped.

  7. Nick says:

    Now that is a very cool car

    1. Etienne Teo says:

      That car is damn hot and limited.

  8. Wow. That car is hot!

  9. Justin says:

    gauges are bananas!

    1. Actually it’s liquid crystal, like in a fighter jet. Bananas would be a bit messy.

  10. John W says:

    Per Autoweek.com, there is little much for the extra $1 mil in the car over the LP640:

    “Ordinarily, for example, people who are perceptive and disciplined enough to build massive fortunes would not pay $1.4 million for something intrinsically worth a little more than $311,000–the cheaper option being a Lamborghini Murciรฉlago LP640.

    Not far beneath the Reventรณn’s carbon-fiber and aluminum skin lurks little more than an LP640, which was amply evident when we drove the Reventรณn. Lamborghini freely admits that this is a sculpture moving on tried and trusted engineering.”

    Horsepower is only up 10hp over the LP640.

    I write this in case Bill Gates, Larry, or Sergey are reading this and were about to make a purchase since the rest of us can only drool.

    1. The price is so high because it’s a limited edition.

    2. blackysky says:

      this is a collection car ….. nothing to do with a Lamborghini Murciรฉlago LP640.. You don’t drive this car you watch it only ahahahhaha

      1. LoL nah man I’d drive it, I don’t care how much it would cost I’m not going to spend a mill for an ornament ๐Ÿ™‚

        There’s no real concern for crashing with this baby, coz if you do it would be the last thing you go on this lovely planet.

        What do ya think?

  11. Justin says:

    this or zonda r?

    1. what’s a zonda? you mean a honda?

      1. John Chow says:

        The Zonda was the previous car on the header.

  12. Youfoundjake says:

    Just got mine in the mail, I had em overnight it so i could be the first to have it in the US,
    sigh.. if only….

  13. John, this brings up a question I’ve been wanting to ask you. What kind of cars do you personally own?

    1. John did a post about a new car he just bought a few days ago if I remember correctly I’ll try find the link. Can’t remember what car it was either.

    2. MoneyNing says:

      Two Acuras I believe.

  14. Wow!!!! Amazing car!
    Cheaper than Ferrari Enzo…

    1. And way hotter than the Enzo too ๐Ÿ˜€

  15. Tony says:

    I’ve got two words ๐Ÿ˜›
    Awesome Car!!!

  16. 10KPortfolio says:

    Very nice ride. I saw it at the LA Auto Show.

  17. The wife’s Rover 214 would kick its ass!

  18. John Cow says:

    Does this mean we have to change our header too ? ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

    1. I guess so ๐Ÿ˜€

      I still like your header anyway ๐Ÿ™‚ I love it’s comical appearance

      1. blackysky says:

        I think you have no choice ahahhaha ๐Ÿ™‚ ahaha just kidding but you have to move to the next level lool

    2. MoneyNing says:

      Yes… You can black it out and put a question mark where the car is to make it future proof ๐Ÿ™‚

    3. Yup, you gotta for sure. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  19. How long until you buy one?

  20. Rhys says:

    Does that badge look like a Bughatti or a Ferrari?!?! Oh my goodness.

  21. To see the new header image you might have to click ‘Ctrl +F5’ to clear your cash.

    1. Checking to see if my Gravatar will show up.

  22. MoneyNing says:

    yikes. That’s nice.

  23. Dan Huang says:

    Someone on Ferrari Chat has #4 out of 20. I’ll try to buy it from him used down the road… ๐Ÿ˜€

  24. Thanks for the link John! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I follow Lambo’s because I’d love to eventually buy one. ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. Rodel says:

    what the! ๐Ÿ˜ฏ … 30 yrs.. of blogging still i can’t afford that..worst, its obsolete..

    1. Wait, 30 years of bloggin? Blogging has not existed for more than 10 years! maybe you thought of the technology before huh?

  26. Manik says:

    Thats a beauty! 20 Rich kids will be showing off on the streets soon!

  27. Fat Man says:

    thats a slick looking automobile. niiiiiiiiice!

  28. Eduardo Maio says:

    Too bad that it looks more like a stealth fighter then a real italian sports car, but maybe that’s a sign that the germans are in charge now ๐Ÿ˜

    But then again, Lamborghini never made sleek italian design cars, only the Miura comes to mind.

  29. wow I’m speechless, great looking car

  30. Douglas Karr says:

    I think what’s most inspiring about Lamborghini is their ability to both evolve, design on the edge, but continue to maintain a style that is easily identifiable. What an incredible machine. It looks as though it could suck the pavement right off the road.

    Thanks for sharing it, John!

  31. Has Nate changed his last name to “Whiltehead”? ๐Ÿ˜€

  32. BTW…John Chow, what kind of a car do you drive…curious what a self proclaimed Dot Com Mogul drives? It’s not a Toyota Camry is it? ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. From what I understand he drives an Acura.

  33. David Savage says:

    I must have one. Time to get into ultra mega blogging mode ๐Ÿ˜›

  34. Etienne Teo says:

    I just thought this car and the ferrari limited edition FXX is just cool.

  35. NoviceSEO says:

    What a sissy car. Give me my 75 AMC Pacer…… now that’s a car.
    hahahaha

    Seriously…. that is a dream car… I would be hard pressed to choose that or a Bugatti Veyron…….

  36. Steve says:

    Well, whatever car it is, it is freakin’ sweet. If any of you care to get me an X-Mas gift, here you go. ๐Ÿ˜€

  37. I need to get myself one of them ๐Ÿ˜€

  38. THe alloys on it are pretty bad ass

  39. Its the nicest Lamborghini ever produced and they are only limiting the amount they are making…shame its such a nice car ๐Ÿ˜›

    1. maybe that’s why it’s worth so much, not the car, they make so little of them and hike the prices so only the really really rich buys them. and the cycle continues… what’s new?

    1. who’s good looking? me? Oh, i thought so too…lol…

    2. sorry, i have this disease where i have to be on top of the commentator list… i think john gave it to me…

  40. CARversation says:

    really nice car, best lambo ever but a bugatti is was more superior, faster and looks nicer and i mean come on a w16 cylinder engine, can’t beat that. check out my Auto Blog, i got nice pictures of the new convertible slr mclaren from Brabus. http://www.CARversation.com

  41. CARversation says:

    nice car, but the bugatti is the best street legal production car i mean a w16 cylinder car, and fastest car cant beat that. if you can afford this i’m sure another 500k wont be nothing for a bugatti. check out my blog for slr mclaren brabus pictures.

  42. Chris says:

    Gorgeous car, loved it when I first saw it on Top Gear.
    I’ll take two please! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Chris

  43. Anyone else looking forward to the day John puts this up in a contest?

  44. That’s possibly the nicest car I’ve ever seen. One of these days….

  45. rahul says:

    nice car I like to wish Santa give this car as Christmas gift & include me in those lucky 20 :mrgreen:

    edit : Santa read above wish – he can grant my wish ๐Ÿ˜ณ but he says he needs donations ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

  46. Jason says:

    Disturbing news… I work down the block form a Lamborghini / Bentley dealer (Paul Miller), and they always have a few million dollars in inventory sitting outside. They now what I believe is a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder (soft top, bright yellow) sitting out there… Even in the snow and feezing rain! Gaaahhhhh!! Protect that thing, for the love of Jebus!

  47. Mr. Mayor says:

    That’s awful! Although I suppose if you build and sell Lambo’s for a living you can afford to let them sit out in the rain and snow every once and awhile ๐Ÿ™‚

  48. Steve says:

    I love the Lamborghini Reventon! and looks great on your blog John.

    Steve

  49. James Wilcox says:

    sweet looking Lambo. Now if only it came in yellow it would be on my blog too.

    1. Hi James, you can find the yellow lamborghini pictures at Lamborghini Gallardo.

  50. I’m sure it’s lovely. But it is hideous.

    1. It’s hideous?! It’s a work of art, the best looking Lambo yet.

  51. Boris Zv says:

    Wow this car if I like! ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

  52. TDave says:

    It’s a great looking car from the front…but that’s it. It looks terrible from all other angles unless your idea of style is riding around in a Stealth Bomber.

  53. hts says:

    dunno, it probably costs a s**tload of money. Taking this into account, I’d be REALLY (read it: way too) careful when driving this car on the street. I don’t actually know how it is in America, but this car is NOT suitable for Romania. Why? Several reasons: first, most of the roads here suck, and the tyres would be destroyed in no time. Secondly, there are lots of drivers that go like crazy, with high speed, in town, on narrow streets – therefore, the risk of getting your car trashed is huge :). And trashing this precious would break anyone’s heart. Oh and third: such a car would attract the attention of thieves, which are plenty in Romania. (oh well, yes, not a very good advertisement for my country, but heck it’s true)

  54. Steven says:

    That’s a really amazing car. Amazing. That should stay as your header.

  55. Mike Huang says:

    It seems like this beast has a lot of smoke coming out of the backend ๐Ÿ™‚

    -Mike

  56. Coooool! I love this shapes of Lamborghini so modern and amazing.
