The multi-millionaire son of Woolworth heiress Barbara Mutton, Reventlow began competing in the mid-fifties with a Mercedes before getting his hands on an 1100 cc Cooper to race in the US in 1956. The following year he came to Europe to buy a Maserati sports car, which he crashed badly at Snetterton, escaping unharmed. He also raced an F2 Cooper briefly, before returning home.

Reventlow then decided to build his own sports car, the Scarab, for 1958. It was a success and, with Chuck Daigh, Lance ambitiously planned a front-engined Grand Prix car which the pair would drive, but when it finally appeared in 1960 the outdated design was hopelessly outclassed. So frustrated were the drivers that, by the British GP, the car had been temporarily abandoned in favour of a third works Cooper. Both Lance and Daigh practised in it, but Chuck, being the faster, drove it in the race. The Scarab project struggled on in the hope of some success in the 1961 Inter-Continental Formula, but when that folded, so did the team.

Reventlow returned to the States to race a new Scarab rear-engined sports car briefly before losing interest in the sport completely. He was killed in 1972, when he was a passenger in a light aeroplane which crashed in bad weather over the Rocky Mountains.
