AT THE 2009 FRANKFURT MOTOR SHOW
CITROËN is celebrating its 90th birthday in 2009. Ninety years of innovation studded with outstanding models like the Traction, launched in 1934, the 2CV, in 1948, and the revolutionary DS, in 1955, that forged the Marque’s fantastic image. CITROËN’S ‘Créative Technologie’ is today behind the brand’s broadest ever range, adapted to the needs of its customers and constantly moving forward, as seen in the two world reveals at Frankfurt: the new C3 and the first car in the DS line, the DS3. Both newcomers are particularly adapted to current trends in the segment and to the diverse needs of customers.
On the concept car front, CITROËN is presenting REVOLTE, a luxury city car mixing cheekiness with ecology and powered by a rechargeable hybrid drivetrain – the ideal solution for combined city/country driving.
Lamborghini Reventón Roadster – ultimately open Designer piece with uncompromising performance
Lamborghini presents the ultimate driving machine among open-top two-seaters – the Reventón Roadster is a sports car of breathtaking fascination, menacing power and uncompromising performance. The 6.5 liter twelve-cylinder generates 493 kW (670 PS), catapulting the Roadster from 0 to 100 Km/h (0 to 62 mph) in 3.4 seconds and onwards to a top speed of 330 KM/h (205 mph). The open-top Reventón is not only one of the fastest, but also one of the most exclusive cars in the world – Lamborghini has limited the series.
The Lamborghini Reventón is not destined to remain a one-off. Less than 20 Lamborghini friends and collectors will be able to own this extraordinary car and, naturally, enjoy the incomparable pleasure of driving it.
Each Reventón Roadster will be sold for 1.1 Million Euro (without taxes). Deliveries will begin October 2009.
“The Reventón is the most extreme car in the history of the brand,” comments Stephan Winkelmann, President and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. “The new Roadster adds an extra emotional component to our combined technological expertise – it unites superior performance with the sensual fascination of open-top driving” . The Reventón Coupé was presented at the 2007 IAA in Frankfurt and was sold out immediately.
Open-top sports cars are a tradition at Lamborghini that stretches back over 40 years. In 1968, the company from Sant’Agata Bolognese built a Miura without a fixed roof as a one-off. The Diablo Roadster appeared in 1995 with its targa roof anchored to the engine cover.
