The Ghedi (Brescia) military airport was the setting for an extraordinary acceleration run between a A200-A Tornado aircraft and the Lamborghini Reventn.
The fighter pilot and the Lamborghini test driver challenged each other on the 3km runway.The Reventn took the lead in the first leg of the race, but the Tornado caught up in the last few meters, taking off and flying over the Reventn, that traveling at a speed of over 211mph at that point.
The Ghedi military base was chosen as the ideal environment to emphasize the Reventn's aeronautical styling. The Reventn's was designed by the Centro Stile Lamborghini and perfected down to the finest detail in close collaboration with Lamborghini's R&D management. It drew inspiration from the world's fastest modern aircraft, which influenced its sharp edges, exact lines and clean surfaces, along with its exclusive matte grey/green exterior paint.
Only 20 Reventns are available, each with a price tag of 1 million euros plus taxes. All are already sold and will be delivered in 2008.
The Lamborghini Reventn, officially presented to the public at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September and seen recently at the LA Auto Show, has also been named the World's Most Beautiful Automobile 2007 in the special models category of the award "L'Automobile pi Bella del Mondo" (The Word's most Beautiful Automobile).The decision was announced by an international panel of well-known international representatives of the automotive and design industries
