The Hudson Italia was possibly the rarest production car at the Eyes On Design show, but just by the smallest of margins. Twenty six Italias were built (some sources say only 20), and 19 are still known to be extant. Lamborghini produced only 20 Reventons, so until one shows up on Wrecked Exotics you’re just a tiny bit more likely to see a Reventon than an Italia. While those wanting to make fashion statements will probably opt for the Aventador, that new Lambo replaces the Murcielago in VW’s Italian subsidiary’s lineup so it will be much more commonplace than the Reventon. In time I’m sure that Lamborghini will do to the Aventador as the Reventon was to the Murcielago it was based upon, but for the time being, the Reventon is the most exclusive, rarest, and fastest of the raging bulls. Ken Lingenfelter opened up his large private car collection in Brighton, Michigan for one of the charity events associated with Eyes On Design, which benefits the Detroit Institute of Ophthalmology. He also brought some of his own cars to the show, including a Bugatti Veyron and this Reventon. The Veyron, for some odd reason, leaves me cold, but with its scoops, ducts, and stealth fighter-like angles and panels the Reventon looks kinda cool in stereo. As rare as the Reventon is, these are most likely the only 3D photos that exist so far of the car.
What folks are saying:
"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
