Lamborghini is celebrating its 50th birthday and what better way to mark the occasion than offer up the Lamborghini Aventador LP 720-4 50 Anniversario at the Shanghai Auto Show. Only 100 cars will be made, each featuring a forged composite badge with the 50 logo and a serial number.
Lamborghini is also showcasing the Gallardo LP 560-2 50 Anniversario in Shanghai, which is painted in Bianco Opalis, a shimmering white, and boasts exclusive features like the carbon-fiber rear wing from the Gallardo Superleggera and the transparent engine cover. Also appearing in Shanghai are an Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster in Bianco Isis and a Gallardo LP 560-4 Spyder in Grigio Telesto.
The Anniversario is a true Lambo, with a powerful carbon-fiber monocoque, 12-cylinder engine and permanent all-wheel drive. At 720 hp, it pack 20 hp more than the current V12 in the Aventador LP 700-4. Lamborghini says this is due to a new specific engine calibration, and the anniversary model accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds, reaching a top speed of 350 km/h.
The front and rear fascias of the 50 Anniversario model have been redesigned, with the rear end completely new and featuring an enlarged diffuser and expansive meshwork. The 50 Anniversario edition features new color schemes including Giallo Maggio (May yellow), a tribute to the most preferred color chosen by Lamborghini costumers since the Miura and references the founding of Automobili Lamborghini in May 1963. The exclusive Giallo Maggio is an all-new color with a particularly intense glitter effect and will only be available on this edition. The Anniversario can also be ordered in other colors through the Ad Personam individualization program.
The Lamborghini Aventador LP 720-4 50 Anniversario’s interior is exclusive fine, natural, semi-aniline leather specifically developed for this model through a particular tanning and coloring process. The colors offered are inspired by Lamborghini’s home in the Italian region of Emilia-Romagna. Thus, Nero Ade (black) is combined with Terra Emilia, a shade of brown evoking the earth of the region, a color that evaluates the exclusive positioning of this model. An alternative color is Giallo Quercus, a yellow color matching the exterior.
