I grew up with Mattel’s Hot Wheels. I remember just playing with the die-cast metal cars for hours and imagining I was a race car driver. Also, as I was growing up, I idolized Speed Racer and pretended to have my own Mach 5. Do you remember what all those buttons did on his steering wheel? Only true Speed Racer fans would know… haha!
I also, made model cars and painted them for display. Bottom line, I was a car fanatic. Therefore when I saw the new $1.4 million Lamborghini Reventon, my jaws dropped.
They have stated that only 20 of these cars will be made for sale to only “friends and collectors.” Show me the money!
The Reventon has a 650-horsepower engine and it is made completely of carbon fiber laid over a carbon fiber and steel frame. They have even engineered the instrument panel to stimulate a modern jet, which is made up of liquid crystal and it shows a G-force display revealing longitudinal forces in a 3-D image. Incredible!
I just thought I would share this joy with all of you. Do you think we can rent this car out at Enterprise Car Rental? j/k.
Here are the pictures of the car:
This car can definitely go under a semi-truck
What you will see once it passes you up in the highway
The closest I will ever get in stepping inside this car
Speed Racer’s Mach 5 is still better
