Lamborghini Reventon Makes First Drive Straight to Meadow Brook Concours

We grabbed a couple of words with the proud new owner of one of eleven US-bound Lamborghini Reventons at the 2008 Meadow Brook Concours D'Elegance on Sunday. Apparently he had driven it off the lot that day, straight to its spot on the Concours. Aside from causing a permanent priapism, the Reventon is Lambo's most extreme supercar to date, with 640 HP emanating from that sinister-looking V12. When the car first came out, we were a bit skeptical of its $1.4 million price tag, but out in the daylight, looking like a machine designed to bring about the apocalypse, it made the Bugatti Veyron down the row look like something you'd drive to the festival of hugs.
