Lamborghini Aventador LP720-4 50th Anniversario unveiled

More power and tweaked styling for the first special edition...

Lamborghini has unveiled the Aventador LP720-4 50th Anniversario (and breathe) ahead of the public reveal at the Shanghai Motor Show in a few days. Though some may complain that Lamborghini are starting to bring out the special editions too early for the big V12 model, this one is a very special case, celebrating the fact that Lamborghini turns 50 years old in May this year.

That month gives inspiration to the most striking element of the LP720 – the bright yellow paintwork called Giallo Maggio or May Yellow. This paint has a deep glitter effect and yellow was chosen because it is the most popular colour choice in the company’s 50 year history. This paintwork is set off by the new aerodynamic bodykit in satin black, which takes inspiration from the Aventador J concept seen last year.

There is a new front bumper with a jutting lower splitter and extra winglets at the sides. The side skirts and wing mirrors stay the same but are painted satin black. At the rear there is a massive new diffuser with aerodynamic blades and sharp lower edges to give a very aggressive look. The makeover is set off with a set of gloss black Dione wheels.

Inside the LP720 gets matching yellow seats and centre console, diamond quilted stitching and 50th Anniversario logos.

Of course, the name implies that there have been some engine tweaks too, though these haven’t been detailed by Lamborghini yet. Given the name though, we can guess that some light tuning has taken place to give the new special edition 720 hp over the regular car’s 700 hp.

Prices are yet to be confirmed, but we can assume that there will be a fairly substantial increase in price over the standard car, given the limited run of 100 units worldwide.
