Lambo Aventador LP720-4 Revealed

Special Edition

More powerful and aerodynamically optimized, the Aventador LP720-4 helps celebrate Lamborghini's 50th anniversary.

As we count down the days to the start of the Shanghai Auto Show, images and details of a new special Aventador have emerged from Germany’s Auto Bild magazine. Celebrating Lamborghini’s 50th anniversary, the Aventador LP720-4 50th Anniversary edition features a number of special upgrades. Principal among them is a retuned version of the Aventador’s 6.5-liter V12 engine that now produces 720 metric horsepower. That’s 20 more than the standard Aventador, but 30 less from the version in the Veneno.

The engine still drives to all four wheels through Lamborghini’s ISR transmission, resulting in a reported 2.9-second 0-62 time and a 217 mph top speed. The 50th Anniversary edition also features a special livery of bright yellow paint with carbon black lower aero elements that have been optimized for the LP720-4 for a 50% increase in aerodynamic efficiency. The interior is similarly trimmed in two-tone yellow and black semi-aniline leather, and anniversary-edition emblems abound inside and out.
