In the spirit of a Top Gear challenge the folks over at Lamborghini have decided to pitch their limited edition jet fighter inspired Reventon against a Tornado fighter jet.
The race took place at the Ghedi airforce base in Italy on a 3km long stretch of runway. The Reventon, with the benefit of AWD and a 0-100km/h time of just 3.4 seconds took an early lead but succumbed to jet power in the closing stages of the race, with the Tornado jet reaching and then exceeding the Reventon?s 340km/h top speed.
You could be excused for thinking that this was a marketing exercise, designed to sell million-dollar-plus Reventon?s but it?s not. With only 20 being built all are pre-sold and you probably needed to know the right person at Lamborghini to have even half a chance of getting your name in the order book.
