Lamborghini Reventon Makes First Drive Straight to Meadow Brook Concours

Illustration for article titled 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.

oh man... the Hug Festival was awesome this year!

They had Hug Co. there with samples of their new Hug Gloves. They are designed for more efficient and "greener" hugging!

The headliner on the main stage was Michael Bolton and he really set the mood for some smooth hugging action...

The Veyron was tucked in a corner but people were still hugging it, though somehow a disturbed Dragon made his way through screening and proceeded to ... umm... well, there was an incident with the tailpipe area. This person was quickly discovered and hugged, then led out of the festival.
