Lamborghini Reventon Inspired by F-22 Raptor Fighter-Jet

via. Gizmo Ave.

The good news is that Lamborghini is building 20 of its F-22 Raptor fighter-jet-inspired Reventon supercars, each priced at an eye-popping $1.5 million. The bad news is, alas, they’re all sold, no doubt with a prearranged slot at the 2015 Barrett-Jackson auction. Investment potential, who needs gold bars? To justify its stratospheric sticker, the Reventon comes with a completely redesigned carbon-fiber body with more angles that a Picasso print. And while you’d think that after forking out $1.5 million you’d want the car painted lime green so everyone would notice; Lamborghini thinks otherwise. That’s why all 20 Reventons will come in a dull, flat stealthy shade of battleship gray. Climb aboard and the fighter jet association continues with 3-D liquid-crystal displays showing need-to-know info, such as lateral and accelerative g-forces.
