Before you get too excited though we should tell you this is the most expensive Lambo ever to come out of Sant’Agata Bolognese at 1.1 million Euros + taxes, and there will only be 20 ever made. Not much chance of spotting one ’round the Dog & Duck then…

Paintwork is a matt grey called Reventon Grey. Hmm, original ? Mind you, it would look spectacular in just about any colour. More facts and figures on next page.
