Lamborghini Uses Plasma Ceramic Coating On Exhaust Of Reventon

Written by tonks on June 26, 2008

Lamborghini ReventonLamborghini revealed the Reventon in October of 2007 and since then we have not seen any of them being delivered. The supercars are worth $1.5 million each and 20 customers are waiting for them and possibly losing what little patience they have left.

We seriously have not noticed too much. At least until Lamborghini began announcing the selection of component suppliers for the Reventon.

The latest was the coating specialist Zirotec, which will be supplying its Diamond Black coating to the exhaust system on the Reventon. The material was developed for nuclear reactors, and uses zirconia-based ceramics to insulate extreme heat. The coating is plasma-sprayed to the exhaust tubing in order to protect the composite bodywork, and gives the tailpipes a unique black finish. The material is also used in racing cars and on the Koenigsegg CCX.
