As part of Lamborghini’s 50th Anniversary celebrations the company has set aside some special editions for a select few. But with the release of the Aventador LP 720-4 50° Anniversario, the company from Sant’Agata hopes to change your odds. Gizmag was on hand to lay eyes and pixels upon the limited edition beast as revealed at the Shanghai Auto Show.Aesthetically little has changed on the LP 720-4 50° compared to the Aventador LP700-4, with the exception of functional elements added fore and aft to intensify the car’s aerodynamic position. On the nose, front air intakes and aero-splitter have been enlarged and extended. Small winglets on the sides have also been added to further increase air traffic and flow. The exception of is the completely new rear-end, featuring an enlarged diffuser underneath to smooth out airflow while enhanced meshwork on the back further improves engine bay ventilation. According to Lamborghini, as a result of these tweaks and other refinements handling and stability at speeds have been optimized, and aerodynamic efficiency increased over the LP 700-4. The Aventador, with its carbon-fiber monocoque, 6.5 liter V12 and permanent all-wheel drive system, was already impressive, but thanks to the new and improved Anniversario, you now get an additional 20 horsepower. This horsepower increase, a result of some Italian engine mapping tweaks, brings the Aventador’s power output up to a polite 720 hp. Put that figure through Lamborghini’s quick shifting ISR gearbox and you’ll find the thing now runs out to 100 km/h (62 mph) in only 2.9 seconds, continuing on if unchecked to a top speed of 350 km/h (217.5 mph).
