Lamborghini chose the Shanghai Auto Show in April 2013 to unveil its newest edition of the Aventador, the LP720-4 50th Anniversary edition. It was built in celebration of the company’s 50th birthday and 50 years of creating the world’s most audacious supercars. This was not to be a special edition limited to only a range of colors; as its name suggests, the Aventador LP720-4 50th Anniversary boasts a modest bump in performance, and engine calibration was tweaked to provide 20 additional horsepower. This yielded a noteworthy increase in performance, bringing its 0–62 mph time down to an exceptional 2.9 seconds and the top speed up to 217 mph.
In addition, the Aventador’s front and rear fascias were redesigned for increased aerodynamics and the front air intakes were enlarged. A larger rear diffuser with extensive meshwork can be found at the back in an effort to further increase aerodynamics and dissipate heat in the engine bay. Overall, this makes for a 50 percent increase in aerodynamic efficiency over the standard-production Aventador. Production was limited to 100 coupes, with a roadster version available as well.
Finished in Giallo Maggio, an exclusive color reserved for the 50th Anniversary models, with exterior trim in flat-black and wheels in high-gloss black, this example is one of only 43 built for the U.S. market. It is finished in a matching black and yellow interior and presents as-new throughout. Delivered through Lamborghini Palm Beach, the car remained in Florida with its first owner until 2017, and was purchased by its second and current owner later that year. Since its delivery, the car has been driven less than 700 miles.
Celebrating a milestone anniversary for Lamborghini, the Aventador LP720-4 50th Anniversary Coupe will surely remain desirable for years to come, as it offers increased performance, aesthetics, and was built in limited production. This example is virtually new throughout, and would be the perfect stablemate to a Miura, Countach, Diablo, and Murciélago as a special edition of Lamborghini’s flagship model.
