First Photos of New Lamborghini Aventador LP720-4 50 Anniversario Edition


Lamborghini is planning to celebrate its 50th birthday at the Auto China 2013 in Shanghai this Saturday with a new special edition version of its Aventdador supercar named the LP720-4 50 Anniversario, pictures of which were leaked online, courtesy of German car magazine Autobild.

The report says that Lamborghini will build 100 numbered examples of the 50th anniversary model that sports a tweaked engine delivering 20hp more than the standard Aventador L700-4's 6.5-liter V12 for a total of 710hp or 720PS. The Anniversario is said to complete the 0-100km/h (62mph) sprint in 2.9 seconds and top out at 350km/h (218mph).

So, what else do we know about the special edition Aventador? Well, as you can see in the pictures, it comes painted in a bright yellow shade that's called "Giallo Maggio", which is Italian for "Yellow May", and also sports a new black aero package with an aggressive front apron, new rear diffuser and side panels.

The car rides on black alloy wheels, with the exterior color-combo also making its presence in the interior.

For further details, we will have to wait for an official release.

They need to make a special edition of the car with a 6 speed manual transmission! Thats what I'd love, is an Aventador with a manual trans..

Wise words :D
A 7-speed manual conversion shouldn't be too much of a problem for Lamborghini since they don't use a double clutch unit. As always it's a problem of not wanting to do it rather than having technical difficulties with it...

Yeah, you ever drive a 700 hp car with a manual clutch in the rain? Good luck, better hope you have an understanding insurance agent, because you're going to be making a lot of claims
