The Lamborghini Aventador LP720-4 50th Anniversario has been made official ahead of its official release at the Shanghai Motor Show 2013. Its a sign of the times, the Lamborghini that has been built to celebrate Lamborghini’s 50th year in business, has in fact been presented to relatively new market for the Italian supercar manufacturer.
The Lamborghini Aventador LP720-4 50th Anniversario is far less extreme than the Lamborghini Veneno we saw at the Geneva Motor Show earlier in the year. As the name suggests, it now has a 720hp rating from its 6.5 litre V12 engine. The changes are limited to an engine calibration. It now accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and will reach a top speed of 350 km/h.
The Lamborghini Aventador LP720-4 50th Anniversario also has the familiar ISR transmission as well as the Lamborghini Aventador carbon-fiber monocoque. The 50th Anniversary car will be limited to just 100 cars. It is unclear how these will be allocated, yet we suspect that China will getting the bulk. Hopefully Europe and USA will get to see it soon!
What has changed is the bodywork. Lamborghini offer the LP720-4 with a front air intake, a new front splitter and small front side flaps. The rear end is completely new and features an enlarged diffuser and expansive meshwork. Aerodynamics are apparently 50% more efficient over the standard Lamborghini Aventador bodywork.
Covering the bodywork is an exclusive paint colour. The Lamborghini Aventador LP720-4 50th Anniversario comes with Giallo Maggio (May Yellow) paint. This is a tribute to the most preferred color chosen by Lamborghini costumers since the Miura. Unlike earlier anniversary edition Lamborghini’s the LP720-4 will be available in other colours through the Ad Personam program.
The interior of the Lamborghini Aventador LP720-4 50th Anniversario is upholstered in an extremely fine, natural, semi-aniline leather; exclusive to this car. All Lamborghini models built in the 2013 anniversary year feature the 50th anniversary emblem in the cockpit.
