Check out these cool car pictures and video of the Lamborghini Reventón racing a A200 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.

Batmobile Cars

1973 Lincoln Continental Batmobile

In Sweden, a virgin with a 1973 Lincoln Continental and a cool $1 million spent about 5 years crafting a full scale replica of the Batmobile. Now, perhaps we’ve been spoiled by years of high-resolution studio photographs of some of the most beautifully engineered cars in the business, but to our discerning eyes the Swedish Batmobile looks a little, uh, shop class.
