Lamborghini Aventador anniversary edition


Automobili Lamborghini chose to celebrate their 50th birthday at this year’s 2-13 Shanghai Auto Show, with the reveal of their very limited edition Lamborghini Aventador LP 720-4 50 Aniversario edition.

Only 100 units worldwide will be built of the more powerful series Aventador which will be equipped with the exclusive equipment and technology it features.

The 6.5-litre 12-cylinder engine has been tweaked and tuned to deliver 15kW more power than the regular Aventador LP 720-4, thus lifting the maximum output to 537kW or, as the nameplate says, 720hp. The maximum torque however has not changed from 690Nm.

The anniversary edition accelerates from zero to 100km/h in a supposed 2.9 seconds thanks to its fast-shifting ISR transmission, and has a top speed of 350km/h, which is identical to the standard LP 700-4 model.

The front and the rear of the anniversary model have been redesigned for a more aggressive look and the aerodynamics have been further optimized as well.

The front air intakes and the splitter have been enlarged and extended with small flaps in order to better cool the engine and the rear end is completely new, with a larger area of meshwork meant to further improve the engine cooling.

The anniversary model has a fifty percent increase in aero efficiency compared to the basic Aventador LP 700-4 which means that the  handling and stability at high speeds overall have been enhanced.

The anniversary edition comes with a new paint color as well, the specially designed Giallo Maggio – May Yellow – is a tribute to the color most preferred by the company’s customers ever since the Miura while at the same time referencing the founding of the Automobili Lamborghini back in May of 1963.

Going further with the paint scheme, the front and rear as well as the sills are treated in a two-tone paint scheme of Giallo Maggio and matte black, with the wheels being painted high-gloss black to match the design.

Pricing has not yet been confirmed, but considering the original 2013 Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 starts at $761,500, one should expect this anniversary edition to easily exceed $800,000.

The quest for quieter road surfaces

Anything that has an internal combustion engine is, by default, rather noisy, as such roads in general tend to be a very noisy affair because of the large number of various engines on any stretch of road at any one time, however you may not realize that a lot of noise is also generated at ground level, meaning where the car meets the road.
