    I can tell you exactly what this car is. They (VW) say they loose money with every Bugatti Veyron they produce. They would need to charge a lot more money to be profitable. Charging 1 million Euro for a fancy Murc is one way to make back some of the money lost on the Bugatti.



    Despite its ugly EGG shape body, I'll take a Veyron over a Reventon in a heartbeat!

    I clearly am not getting it. How does a car manufacturure rebody a car and add 10 hp and then charge another 1 million dollars for it? I could almost see if it had 750hp and weighed a 1000Lbs less than a Murci but this is just rediculous. Why would anyone pay for this? How on earth did they even come up with this price. I would have said it was too much at 550K much less 1.4. If we look at past previous million dollar plus cars like the Bugatti or the F1 they clearly had something special that was unlike any other car in the past. The Reventon is not only not better than other cars in it's category but it's just a redo of a very good sportscar not even a supercar.
    I can just see Lambo laughing as people actually pay for this thing. Yep we got em. Great marketing job fellas. At least Bugatti and McLaren did it by engineering brilliance.

    Rather interesting theory.

    Dimitri, Since when a Supercar is about headlights, instrument clusters and engine bonnets? Take an LP640 to any aftermarket tuner and they will transform it into ONE of a kind example for less than $1 mln.

    Gosh, for that price they might just be able to build you a proper UFO!


    H the lp640 is already a supercar, the reventon is a very exclusive supercar. when you take a car to a tuner, they will fit you some spoilers and different wheels, on the reventon its a cmpletly different car. i love the vyron and its 1000hp, but imo its almost invisible when parked next to a reveton.
    take for example the cgt avalanche, same car with few spoilers and engine tweaks , close to a million$..

    1. It looks unlike anything else.
    2. It's the latest and greatest from Lamborghini.
    3. It's styling and features provokes an "I want that!" feeling.
    4. As the LP640 is a great car, this should be as well.
    5. It's likely to be a collectors item.
    6. It's very exclusive.

    Add those together and you get nr 7.: It might very well end up being cheaper to own than a regular LP640.
