The fighter pilot and the Lamborghini test driver challenged each other on the 3000 m-long runway.
For presentation to international television networks, Lamborghini thought it would be fitting to do the same as the blokes at Top Gear and race their aeronautically inspired Reventon against a A200-A Tornado. The event took place at the Ghedi military airport in Brescia Italy and predictably saw the Reventon initially take the lead, but was then quickly overtaken by the tornado in the last few meters of the 3000 m long runway.
With a price tag of 1 million euros, only 20 Reventons will be produced. Naturally, all 20 are already reserved for friends and collectors close to Lamborghini and they will be delivered in 2008.
