Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor and the Lamborghini Reventon

It’s been a long time that the Lockheed has launched the ultimate fighting aircraft F-22 or better known as “Raptor”. I loved the design of this aircraft from the Aerodynamics to almost everything it had on board. Most people will fall in love with this aircraft just because of the looks. It has the perfect shape and the design for a Fighter Jet.

In the beginning of this year I watched some TopGear videos and guess what something reminds me of the F-22 Raptor. It had the same looks and everything but this time it’s a car... and it is the Lamborghini Reventon (pronounced as Rehbenton).

Not many Raptors are produced by Lockheed, the average production rate is 20 Raptors per year. On the other hand Lamborghini will be producing only 20 Reventons ever. I personally think that the Lamborghini has copied the design of the body from the F-22 or at least the F-22’s design has influenced the guy who designed Reventon (copying that is). The Reventon, with its matte gray finish and carbon fiber panels provides necessary proof for that.

According to Lockheed F-22 Raptor costs $ 137.5 M where as the Lamborghini has put a price tag on Reventon as € 1.0 M

The Reventon is powered by a 6.5 Liter V 12 Engine which give the car 650 BHP at 8000 rpm and 487 ft-lb at 6000 rpm of torque. 0-60 mph takes only 3.4 seconds while the top speed is 220 mph.
