2008 Lamborghini Reventon vs Tornado Jet Fighter

The Ghedi (Brescia) military airport was the setting this week for an extraordinary acceleration race between a Tornado aircraft [A200-A] provided by the airbase, and the Lamborghini Reventуn driven by an official Lamborghini test driver.

The fighter pilot and the Lamborghini test driver challenged each other on the 3000 (1.86 miles) m-long runway.
The Reventуn took the lead in the first leg of the race, but the Tornado caught up in the last few metres, taking off and flying over the Reventуn that was going at a speed of over 340 km/h.

The ideal environment in which to emphasise the Reventуn’s aeronautic styling, the airbase was made available to Lamborghini by General Carlo Landi of the Fifth Department of the Stato Maggiore dell A.M, and Colonel Aurelio of the Sixth Formation.

The Reventуn’s design – entirely designed by the Centro Stile Lamborghini and perfected down to the finest detail in close collaboration with Lamborghini’s R and D management - drew its inspiration from the world’s fastest aircraft in modern aviation. It is from this heritage that the Reventуn has drawn its extremely precise, technically impressive style with sharp edges, exact lines and clean surfaces, along with its exclusive new matte grey-green exterior colour.

There are only 20 Reventуn cars available, each with a price tag of 1 million euros plus taxes. All are already sold and will be built and delivered in 2008.
