Unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2007 the Lamborghini Reventón is one of the rarest cars in the world with only 20 examples built - and all pre-sold before the public unveiling. Styled on the F-22 Raptor jet fighter the Reventón is powered by a 650hp 6.5-litre V12 engine and when launched commanded an asking price of €1 million plus local taxes. Only one example is thought to have made it to the UK and on June 11 it will go under the hammer at an exclusive auction to be held at Motorexpo in Canary Wharf, London.
As part of its 'Supercars and Superclassics' sale, H&H Classics will be presenting the Reventón as well as a number of vehicles from brands such as Ferrari, Pagani, Maserati, and Koenigsegg.
"The appearance, let alone sale, of a car as rare as the Lamborghini Reventón is sure to attract a large number of supercar enthusiasts and collectors to Motorexpo this summer," commented Graeme Carver, Motorexpo CEO.
Motorexpo will be open daily in Canary Wharf from 10am to 6pm (Monday 11 to Saturday 16) and 11am to 5pm on Sunday 17 June. Entry is free and the show's organisers are expecting more than 425,000 visitors to enjoy this year's event and visit Canary Wharf's 200-plus shops, bars, cafes and restaurants.
In addition to the cars being displayed by H&H, a number of leading automotive brands have already confirmed their attendance, including Bentley, BMW, Jaguar, Kia, Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz, Vauxhall and Volvo.
