Lamborghini are celebrating their 50th Anniversary at the Shanghai Motor Show with a 720hp version of the monstrous Aventador, it’s quite yellow.
The standard Lamborghini Aventador with its 6.5liter, 690hp V12 is quite fast. It’s capable hitting 62mph in 2.9 seconds and going onto a top speed of 217mph. It doesn’t really need more power. But more power is nice, most importantly it gives you more pub bragging rights.
Which brings us to the bright yellow pile of pure awesome you see here, it’s the Lamborghini Aventador LP720-4 50 Anniversario. It contains the same 6.5 liter V12 monster as the standard Aventador, but as the name suggests, its been tuned to pump out 720hp, 30hp more than before.
It also comes with lots of black body kit, which means it looks quite awesome. Apparently all of those sharp edges, flicks and fins aid down force and allow the Aventador to carry more speed through the bends. But lets be honest, the primary reason for such a rowdy kit, is to make Toyota Prius’ wet themselves. Just look at the back end! It’s so angry.
Inside – apart from the obvious yellowfication – Lamborghini have made a few subtle changes. There are more flashes of tasty carbon fiber and alcantara, which is good, as well as some badges to remind you that you’re not in the ‘normal’ Aventador.
Just 100 LP720’s are expected to be built, whether they’ll all be this yellow is unclear, but we’ll have more details in the coming days after the car is revealed at the Shanghai Motor Show.
