Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Pirelli EditionLamborghini has revealed a new special edition Aventador LP 700-4 Pirelli Edition to celebrate the 50-year association between the two firms.

Lamborghini’s first ever car, the 350 GTV, wore Pirelli tyres and the two companies have worked together ever since; the new Aventador Pirelli Edition marks this in eye-catching, red-accented fashion.

Lamborghini Centro Stile has created a two-tone colourscheme that has two options:

  • Matt black roof, pillars, door mirrors, engine hood and air intakes with one of six gloss bodycolours: Giallo Spica, Rosso Mars, Bianco Isis, Nero Aldebaran, Grigio Liqueo or Grigio Ater
  • Gloss black upper parts and air intakes with one of four matt body colours: Bianco Canopus, Nero Nemesis, Grigio Adamas or Grigio Titans

Both gloss/matt combinations get a red stripe running across the roof, engine cover, door mirrors and front air intakes: driving home the Pirelli link are red logos on the roof and, yes, the tyres.

We wonder if such vivid coloured logos on the tyres may just have set a road car trend…

Needless to say, there’s black Alcantara with red stitching inside – rather neatly, Lamborghini’s mirrored the outside strip on the roof and seats.

Red embroidered Lamborghini and Pirelli logos also feature on the seats, and there’s a Pirelli special series plaque on the dash.

There are, however, no performance upgrades for the new special edition Aventador Pirelli Edition: as it already has 700hp, can do 217mph and accelerate from 09-62mph in 2.9 seconds, none were presumably deemed necessary.

Deliveries of the new Pirelli Edition Aventador – which is offered in both coupe and Roadster guise – begin in early 2015; ordering is open now.

Prices have not yet been disclosed but don’t be surprised if it nudges £275,000…
