As Lamborghini never tires of telling us, the Murciélago-gone-mad Reventón was jet fighter-inspired. Stealth bomber exterior panels, fighter pilot display panel, complimentary copy of Top Gun when you buy one of the million-Euro hypercars.
So it was only apt that, this weekend, Lambo pitted the Reventón in a drag race against... a Tornado jet fighter. And the car lost. Obviously.
See, even with a 641bhp V12 and a top speed of 200ómph, the Reventón was never going to prove a match for the Tornado, which is powered by a pair of turbofan jets developing just shy of 40,000bhp at sea level.
Lambo says it was a close-run thing until the final stretch of the three-kilometre runway, when the Tornado literally disappeared off into the distance.
Still, watching plane versus car must've been quite a sight.
