LP720-4 boasts of 20hp more power

In celebration of its 50th birthday Lamborghini is presenting the Lamborghini Aventador LP 720-4 50 Anniversario at the 2013 Auto Shnghai. Limited to just 100 units worldwide, each unit will be having a Forged Composite badge with the 50° logo and a serial number.

Aside from the increase of 20 hp in its power output, the 50th anniversary edition of the Aventador will also be enjoying new front, side and rear aerodynamic parts, exclusive 'Giallo Maggio' (May Yellow) paintwork, and unique interior trims.

The new specific engine calibration makes it possible for the anniversary model to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 350 km/h. The newly developed aerodynamic parts also contribute to a 50% increase in its aerodynamic efficiency as compared to the LP 700-4.

The interior of the Aventador LP 720-4 50 Anniversario is upholstered in an extremely fine, natural, semi-aniline leather. It features a combination of Nero Ade (black) and Terra Emilia (a shade of brown). An alternative color is Giallo Quercus, a yellow color matching the exterior and stressing the vehicle's sporty nature. Featured in both versions is the exclusive Q-Citura stitch, a diamond pattern introduced especially for this celebratory model that highlights the Italian craftsmanship.
