Lamborghini Aventador LP720-4 50 Anniversario Edition debuts on the Shanghai Auto Show

The manically fast and extremely yellow Lamborghini Aventador LP720-4 50 Anniversario Edition has just debuted on the Shanghai Auto Show and it loox fantastic. Lamborghini also calls the car ‘Aventador 50’ and we copy that. The Aventador 50 is a special edition Lamborghini Aventador created to celebrate 50 years of Lamborghini supercars.
Lamborghini will only make 100 examples of the Aventador LP720-4 50 Anniversario Edition (not 50). The Aventador 50 will get 20 horsepower more (not 50) than the regular Aventador, which has to do with 700. The Aventador 50 is made even more happy by an extra speedy carbon-fiber body kit, with wings winglets and spoilers at the front, sides and on the back. The 20 extra horse will likely all be necessary to carry the extra weight of the carbon kit around. Lamborghini says the kit generates more down force, which we sure believe, but Lamborghini doesn’t say the Aventador 50 is faster than the regular Aventador, which we think it isn’t.
More yellow and more carbon fiber inside. Weight savings of a carbon fiber instrument-panel cover: about 300 gram. Buy one can of Coke: 330 gram. But it loox cool for the babes!
How many of the 100 will come to China is yet unknown, but likely a lot. China is currently the second market worldwide for Lamborghini and wealthy Chinese car buyers love special editions very much, no matter the price. A base Aventador goes for 6.57 million yuan or 1.06 million USD, the LP720-4 50 Anniversario Edition will likely go over 7 million.
And we end, with the ass. Sure Lamborghini can’t find a way to add more carbon! Oh, wait…
