Lamborghini and Pirelli combine for special-edition Aventador
Lamborghini and Pirelli have come together to celebrate over 50 years of collaboration. To mark the occasion, the Italian auto maker has unveiled its Aventador LP 700-4 Pirelli Edition, a styling special that goes on sale in 2015.
Changes to the Aventador are limited to styling. The first package is made up of a matte black finish on the roof, pillars, mirrors and hood, which contrast with the lower body's glossy finish in black, yellow, red, white or two different shades of silver. The second option eschews matte black for a high-gloss black finish on the upper parts of the car, which contrasts with the lower body's matte finish, available in a smaller range of colors.
Highlighting Lamborghini's relationship with Pirelli is a set of red stripes that run along the Aventador's roofline, and red brake calipers hide behind the gloss black 20-inch front wheels and 21-inch rears. Naturally, the 700-4 Pirelli Edition's wheels are shod in pinstriped Pirelli tires.
Inside, the red stripes continue. Red stitching adorns the Aventador's seats, and a stripe runs across the car's roof and seats. Each Pirelli Edition Aventador is also fitted with a plaque, signifying the car's unique nature.
Mechanically, the Pirelli Edition Aventador is powered by the same 515 kW (700 hp) V12 as standard Aventadors, with an identical 0-100 km/h (62 mph) time of 2.9 seconds.
Deliveries begin in mid-2015, with no word on what the premium a Pirelli Edition Aventador will command over the standard coupe or roadster.
