There are very few words that can describe this fine vehicle. From the moment I saw it, it has struck my heart strings. If only I had $1 Million to burn on a car. Well, $1 million for anything actually! Here is a little background behind the name of the car:

The Reventón is named after a fighting bull in keeping with Lamborghini tradition. The bull, raised by the don Heriberto Rodríguez family, was best known for killing famed bullfighter Félix Guzmán in 1943. Reventón means “explosion” or “burst” in Spanish, when used as a noun. In the vernacular, it is also used to define a very large party or a night on the town. It’s commonly said “vámonos de reventón”, which means “let’s go party tonight.” In automotive terms, it means “blowout, flat tire” when used as a noun. When it was used as the name of a bull, however, it was intended to be interpreted as an adjective, a quality or property of that bull in particular. In this last sense, Reventón means “he who seems to be about to burst”.
