Lamborghini Gallardo Reventon: Yup’, they ruined it.

Lamborghin Gallardo Reventon

Why is it that when a manufacturer goes and gets a taste of a good thing they decide to take it one step further and ruin it. Take the Lamborghini Gallardo for example. When it was released it was touted as the smaller cheaper younger brother to the Murcielago. Granted the Gallardo is no slouch, in fact it is one of the best super cars in the world. Over the last few years though Lamborghini has been slowly and systematically diluting the brand with a bunch of different versions instead of just staying true to what the Gallardo is, a stellar performance car.

What you are viewing here is the new Lamborghini Gallardo Reventon from customizer CDC-International out of Germany and this was a snippet from the press release I received:

The new Gallardo has been fully customized with a body-kit in the REVENTON style (hmm… didn’t know there was such a thing). There are a lot of Glossy-Carbon components like air intakes, rear diffuser and spoiler sword (now that’s a new one). The Side Skirts, rear apron and front apron is available in Carbon and in Fiberglass. At CDC-International you get all wishes for your Lamborghini. Light alloy wheels in 19/20 inch, brake system, engine upgrade to 800 HP, exhaust systems, thread chassis and interior finish in carbon and leather, all colors.

The above press notice frightens me because it means that Lamborghini is worried and trying to maximize profits. Think about this for a moment. Right now there are no less than 4 Gallardo models to choose from. There is the Gallardo LP560-4, LP560-4 Spyder, LP570-4 Superleggera, LP550-2 Balboni and now the Reventon.

Now this may be a stretch, but take the Chevrolet Corvette for example. The brand has been diluted so much that right now they are even considering a 4-door version. I mean, when is enough, enough? Think about those who shelled out 1 million large and purchased the Murcielago Reventon. With the introduction of the Gallardo Reventon, Lamborghini not only cheapen the brand in my opinion, but gave a big “FU” to those who bought the Murcielago, I just don’t understand it.

Oh and as for the car? It’s silver with a big goofy wing that looks like it was purchased from a JC Whitney catalog, it has red accents that should be on a Honda Civic from the Bronx and a front fascia that looks like a Hollywood actress that OD’d on bo-tox. Otherwise though, it’s very classy… well done Lamborghini, well done indeed.

    Most Gallardos make a “woooooosh” sound as they speed past. With the addition of the wing, however, this Gallardo goes “dooooouuuuccchhe” as it passes by with frosted hair wannabees in tow.

    Yea, that is pretty stomach churning, in the bad way. At least it’s some customizer and not Lamborghini that is producing it…

    yes the spoiler on this 3rd party customization does look ridiculous but how is a coupe, a convertible, a racing edition and a limited special edition diluting their brand.
