Ultra rare Lamborghini inspired by a FIGHTER JET is up for auction this weekend and is set to fetch an eye-watering price | The Sun

LAMBORGHINIS are hardly ten-a-penny, but this particular one is rarer than most and comes with a massive potential price tag.

It's called the Lamborghini Reventon Roadster and only 15 of these V12 open-tops were ever made back in 2010.

The Lamborghini Reventon (there is also a hard-top of which 20 were made) is inspired by none other than the F-15 fighter jet.

You can see why, with its aggressive lines and doors that open upwards like a fighter jet's cockpit glass.

Despite the Roadster losing its roof, it'll still do 0-62mph in 3.4 seconds and go on to 205mph – that's a lot of wind in your hair.

As with the hard-top, the Roadster's rear spoiler deploys at around 80mph, changing to a steeper angle at approximately 140mph for even more downforce.

Another cool feature is the Reventon Roadster's deployable roll-over hoops, which quickly shoot up to protect the car's occupants if you get it very wrong and start to barrel-roll down the road.

But probably the most interesting feature is the fact it's fitted with a G-force meter to record exactly how brutal the acceleration is.

This particular car is going on sale this weekend in Switzerland with Bonhams with just 1500 miles on the clock.

According to Bonhams the Reventon Roadster ' was sold new in Switzerland via Lamborghini Porrentruy and has had only one owner.

'It will be offered for sale freshly serviced by Lamborghini Porrentruy, and comes with Swiss Carte Grise and all of its original books.'

This car was actually up for auction with Bonhams back in 2019 and has covered just 10km since.

A Reventon Roadster cost £954,000 plus taxes when it went on sale back in 2009, which is £1.3million in today's money.

Given this one is billed to fetch £1.8million, that's a decent investment.
