An ultra-rare Lamborghini Reventon, valued at more than £1 million, is set to go on sale at the upcoming London Motorexpo in June.
The vehicle will feature in an exclusive auction hosted by H&H and is one of only 20 examples that have been manufactured to date, following the supercar's launch in 2007 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. However, all 20 models were pre-sold prior to its public unveiling.
It is powered by a 6.5-litre V12 engine producing 650 bhp and its bodywork is made entirely of carbon fibre.
This means the car is capable of a blistering top speed of 211 mph and achieving acceleration from zero to 62 mph in just 3.4 seconds, highlighting the fact the Reventon is a vehicle with a serious pedigree.
As a result, the sale of the vehicle is expected to be hotly contested, with auction house H&H predicting it will smash the £1 million barrier.
Set to run from June 11th to 17th at Canary Wharf, the expo will be open daily to visitors from 10:00 until 18:00 BST and will transform one of London's premier business districts into a petrolhead's paradise.
"The appearance, let alone sale, of a car as rare as the Lamborghini Reventon is sure to attract a large number of supercar enthusiasts and collectors to Motorexpo this summer," commented Graeme Carver, Motorexpo's chief executive officer.
"But even those who can't quite justify the £1 million asking price for the Reventon can get up close to their potential next purchase – be it classic or modern."
A host of other top manufacturers will display their vehicles for the delight of those in attendance, including Bentley which will be showcasing its new V8 Continental and Continental GTC ranges for visitors to enjoy.
This year, more than 425,000 people are predicted to head to the London Motorexpo – the largest audience ever for the event.
