How about starting the new year enjoying a gallery of this exclusive pair of supercars? These two limited edition collector’s items are rarely seen on the road, let alone shining next to each other; the epic Lamborghini Reventon Roadster and SLR McLaren Stirling Moss.
Although it may not look like it, the Lamborghini Reventón Roadster and SLR McLaren Stirling Moss have surprisingly much in common and therefore make up for an interesting photoshoot. Think of the wing doors, open top and rivaling performance figures. However, the exterior design of both cars couldn’t be more different. The fierce geometry and sharp edges on the Lambo contrast strongly with the more round edged special edition of the SLR McLaren.
The Lamborghini Reventón Roadster is the most unique car of the two, of which only 15 are built. The V12 powered masterpiece has a top speed of 330 km/h and takes only 3.4 seconds to reach a 100 km/h. The F-22 Raptor fighter jet inspired design supercar first went into production in 2008, which seems light years back. The futuristic design makes the car look rather timeless and an obvious older brother to the more recent Lamborghini Aventador.
The SLR McLaren Stirling Moss on the other hand is more of a tribute to the past, all in honour of the legendary Sir Stirling Moss driving a Mercedes 300 SLR to a Mille Miglia victory back in 1955. Of the permanent open top supercar only 75 were built, making it a very rare and special sight on the road.
The special edition of the SLR McLaren went into production back in 2009 and features a modest V8 engine. Even though the car is fitted with a V8, it doesn’t make the performance figures less impressive compared to the Lamborghini Revènton Roadster. The SLR McLaren Stirling Moss tops out at 337 km/h and reaches 100 kilometers an hour in 3.5 seconds, making it a true rival to the Reventón Roadster.
Considering both the huge differences and similarities between the Lamborghini Reventón Roadster and the SLR McLaren Stirling Moss, they seem to be quite a logical match for a photoshoot after all. Kudos to Future Photography Co-founders Alexandre Mourreau and Florent Poncelet for setting up this inspiring photoshoot.
