Our exclusive report back in March that there is a Lamborghini Reventon Roadster on the way has been rumbling on without conclusion. We know it’s real (in fact we know one very high-profile Russian who already has a contract) but we also know that the original plan to reveal the Roadster was delayed because there weren’t enough potential buyers at the time.
But Lamborghini has now shown the Reventon Roadster to a handful of potential buyers at Sant’Agata and – although we haven’t had confirmation yet – it seems likely they’ve secured another order or two. But when is the rest of the world going to see the Reventon Roadster?
Our sources said initially the the Reventon Roadster would be a surprise show at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September. Which makes sense. But we’ve had word from a well-placed Lamborghini source in the US that Lamborghini are considering turning up at Pebble Beach this month with the Reventon Roadster in tow. Which does add up. Despite the economic downturn affecting most of the West, the US is probably the biggest single potential market place for the Reventon Roadster. So a first show on US turf could be on the cards.
If the Reventon Roadster does show at Pebble Beach it will join the new Grand Bentley for its world première, together with US première for the Aston Martin One-77 . It is even possible we may see some news on the Bugatti Royale / Bordeaux – although it’s extremely unlikely to be the car itself.
