I just received this from HLJ. It's a curbside, but has basic (really basic) engine top detail. The doors do not actually hinge, but can be posed in the up or down positions. It's nice to see a small fret of photoetched parts. The grills are diplicated in photo etch and in plastic.

A quick bit of research shows that to build a faithful Reventon model a little carbon fibre decal will be required.

I'll apologise in advance for the photos that aren't great.

Thanx for sharing.... Was contemplating getting this but I don't think I will because the price doesn't justify the detail level of the kit.... Besides... I've got 2 Aoshima Aventadors on their way ��. If you look closely the Revention was a prelude to the Aventador anyway....
Cheers Dan


I think it all depends on how bad you want a Reventon. Wonder if this tool is modified "backwards" (time wise of the subject matter) from their A Vent, A Door! as it has the same either up or down doors.

The Avantador is a bigger car than the Reventon. I have both Fujimi kits, and although they do look similar at first glance they are quite different. The most obvious difference being the size. The Reventon is like a 9/10 scale version of the Aventador!

Looking at both Fujimi kits 'in the flesh' (in the plastic!) there are no parts in common between the two - not even the tyres.

I have the Aventador, but not the Reventon. I knew what to expect in the kit as it's shown above, but I'm still not sure I want a Reventon bad enough...I suppose a lot of the cost in this kit (compared to the detail level) is tied up in the licensing fee.

Fujimi is going to release a new Reventon:

The kit is almost 20% cheaper than the original issue. Any idea what the differences are?

Based on Fujimi's history, I'd guess the difference will be no PE.

This Rosso version appears to be the same as the original Reventon kit except either molded or pre-painted in Red. Cheaper? Beside the probably removed P/E it's also probably because the tooling is a little more paid for this time around as is the licensing.
