2014 Lamborghini Aventador LP720-4 50 Anniversario

Leaked images and details confirm Lamborghini will launch the limited edition Aventador LP720-4 50 Anniversario at the Shanghai Motor Show to celebrate fifty years since the company’s creation.

It uses the same 6.5-litre V12 as the Aventador, with the LP720-4’s power output increased by 19bhp over the standard car’s 691bhp, to give a blistering 710bhp. In spite of the upgraded power, it is doubtful that the LP720-4’s top speed and 0-62 time will be notably improved from the Aventador’s already blistering 218mph and 2.9-second figures.

More apparent than the performance upgrades are the aesthetic features of the special edition Lamborghini. Never one for subtlety, Lamborghini’s 50th birthday Aventador is finished in fluorescent yellow ‘Giallo Maggio’ paint, with black-painted aerodynamic upgrades and alloys. At the front, a venomous, angular front spoiler skims the road, moving into deep side skirts in matching black, and the back sports a striking rear diffuser to complete the effect.

Inside, the seat upholstery and interior trim will be finished with matching flourishes to the vivid yellow exterior, with ’50’ badges dotted around the car to show the limited-edition specification.

An official launch with further details is planned for the LP720-4 50 Anniversario Edition at the Shanghai Motor Show, however expect the limited edition supercar to be sold with a substantial premium over the standard Aventador, and will be limited to just 100 examples.
