Lamborghini Reventon is a mid-engined sports car that debuted at the 2007 Frankfurt Auto Show. Initial reports suggest that the 6.5 liter V12 may receive a power boost of approximately 15 kilowatts (20 horsepower), bringing the new output close to 490 kW (650 horsepower). In spite of this, and the car’s carbon fiber components, the Lamborghini Reventon accelerates to 100 km/h (62 mph) in the same time as the Murcielago LP640 (3.4 seconds). Lamborghini has also picked up some of parent company Audi’s design language. For the first time, Lamborghini incorporated daylight running lights with the headlamps of the Lamborghini Reventon. Seven Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) at each headlamp flank the Bi-Xenon main beam and they stay lit whenever the car is in movement. Due to the high temperatures in the rear lower part of the car, special heatproof LEDs are used for the indicator and hazard lights, stoplights and rear lights with a triple arrow optical effect.
