Automobili Lamborghini are releasing a special edition Aventador to celebrate the 50th birthday of the brand. An exclusive Lamborghini Aventador LP 720-4 50° Anniversario comes with 720 horsepower, where only 100 units will be sold worldwide. Each of them comes with a Forged Composite® badge with the 50° logo and a serial number showcasing the unique production run for their owners.

With a new performance-oriented front and rear design, the special paintwork and unique interior trim, this Aventador is one of the most exclusive models ever produced in the history of Lamborghini. With its output of 720 hp, the 6.5-liter twelve-cylinder in the Aventador LP 720-4 50° Anniversario is 20 hp more powerful than the current V12 in the Aventador LP 700-4. This is due to a new specific engine calibration. With its extremely fast-shifting ISR transmission, the anniversary model accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds and reaches a top speed of 350 km/h.

Exterior has recieved a number of changes and upgrades making this an even more aggressive version of the already highly touted Aventador. With its front air intakes and the aerodynamic splitter have been enlarged and extended, and small flaps set into the sides, it adds to both appearance and performance at the same time. The rear end is completely new and features an enlarged diffuser and expansive meshwork that further improves engine-compartment ventilation. Overall, handling stability at extreme speeds has been optimized without impacting drag characteristics due to an increase of more than 50% in the aerodynamic efficiency compared to the Aventador LP 700-4.

It also has a newly developed paintwork on the 50° Anniversario edition, Giallo Maggio (May yellow) is 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 structure of this paintwork in sparkling yellow includes a layer of transparent and highly reflective particles, that make the Aventador truly glisten, especially in the sun. The front and rear, as well as the sills, have a two-tone design in Giallo Maggio and matte black that emphasize the Aventador’s streamlined shape. Matching perfectly are the wheels painted in high-gloss black. Naturally, the Aventador LP 720-4 50° Anniversario can also be ordered in every imaginable color through the Ad Personam individualization program.

The interior of the Aventador LP 720-4 50° Anniversario is upholstered in an extremely fine, natural, semi-aniline leather. This leather, specifically developed for the Aventador 50° Anniversario, is worked through a particular tanning and coloring process that accentuates the full grain, natural look and smoothness of the leather. 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 and stressing the vehicle’s sporty nature, is named for the yellow oak tree in the Sant’Agata Bolognese coat of arms. Featured in both versions is the exclusive Q-Citura stitch, a diamond pattern introduced especially for this celebratory model that highlights the Italian craftsmanship found in the interior of the Aventador 50° Anniversario.

In addition to the Aventador LP 720-4 50 Anniversario, Lamborghini is also releasing a Gallardo LP 560-2 50° Anniversario, but we’ll drop more news about it when we receive the full media and information from the Italian car manufacturer. This thing though looks real incredible and it’s definitely a highly coveted special edition Lamborghini Aventador from the start. Here’s the full media gallery right below.
