Special editions often leave us cold and uninterested, but not this one from Lamborghini and Pirelli, even though it all starts and ends with the styling.
The new Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Pirelli Edition was made to celebrate the long-standing collaboration between Lamborghini and Italian tire manufacturer Pirelli that dates back to 1963 when founder Ferruccio Lamborghini turned to Pirelli to supply the tires for his first car, the 350 GTV prototype.
It’s a stunning looking car that maintains the 700PS (690hp) V12 engine that powers it up to 100km/h (62mph) in just 2.9 seconds before topping out at 350km/h (218mph) intact.
Available in both Coupé and Roadster versions, the Pirelli Edition sports a two-tone color scheme in two options.
The first one gets matte black for the roof, pillars, rearview mirrors, engine hood, and front, rear, side and moving air intakes, in contrast with six glossy finishes for the rest of the body (Giallo Spica, Rosso Mars, Bianco Isis, Nero Aldebaran, Grigio Liqueo, and Grigio Ater).
The second color scheme has glossy black for the upper parts of the car and the air intakes, in contrast with four matte finishes for the rest of the exterior (Bianco Canopus, Nero Nemesis, Grigio Adamas, and Grigio Titans).
Both have a thin red stripe running along the body and the new glossy black Dione 20-inch front and 21-inch rear P Zero tires with red logo and red, or yellow in the case of the Rosso Mars exterior, brake calipers, as well as a transparent hood and engine cover in carbon fiber.
Inside, the Aventador Pirelli Edition models are dressed in black Alcantara with red contrast stitching and red stripes, as well as a ”Pirelli special series” plaque on the dash. Pricing has not yet been released.
