Super luxury car maker Lamborghini
has announced production of an exclusive new special series, the Aventador LP
700-4 Pirelli Edition. This has been created to celebrate the long and ongoing
history of collaboration with prestigious Italian tyre manufacturer Pirelli.
The partnership began back in 1963, the year the House of the Raging Bull was
established, and since then all Lamborghini cars have been equipped with
Pirelli tyre. The two firms share not only their Italian origins but also, and
above all, a constant quest for technological innovation, a press release from
The new Aventador Pirelli
Edition, available in Coupé and Roadster versions, will be produced in a
special series and is available to order now from dealers, for delivery early
The super sports car maintains
all its unique technical featureslike carbon fibre monocoque, the V12 engine,
pushrod suspensions and the permanent all-wheel drive, which underlie the
Aventador's global success. The special Pirelli series is enhanced by exclusive
equipment specifically designed by the Lamborghini Centro Stile.
The exterior sports a two-tone
colour scheme in two options. The first is matte black for the roof, the
pillars, the rear view mirrors, the engine hood, and the front, rear, side and
moving air intakes, in contrast with six glossy finishes for the rest of the
body (Giallo Spica, Rosso Mars, Bianco Isis, Nero Aldebaran, Grigio Liqueo, and
Grigio Ater). The second option is glossy black for the upper parts of the car and
the air intakes, in contrast with four matte finishes for the rest of the
exterior (Bianco Canopus, Nero Nemesis, Grigio Adamas, and Grigio Titans).
Another distinctive element of
the body is a thin red stripe that runs along the roof and the engine hood, the
rear view mirrors, and the outer profiles of the air intakes, a stylistic
feature designed to evoke the unmistakable Pirelli branding. The Pirelli logo,
once again in red, is visible at the start of the two roof lines and on the
Standard equipment for the
exterior also includes the transparent engine hood, the engine compartment in
carbon, glossy black Dione 20''/21''rims, P Zero tyres with red logo and red
calipers (yellow only in the case of the Rosso Mars exterior).
The interiors of the Aventador
Pirelli Edition are upholstered with black Alcantara with red contrast
stitching. The red stripe on the body is also repeated on the inside, running
along the interior ceiling and the seats, which feature the Lamborghini and
Pirelli crests embroidered in red. Leather inserts adorn the door panels and
the seat sides. And finally, to underscore its exclusiveness, each car will
have a ''Pirelli special series'' plaque inside.
The engine churns out 700 hp
at 8,250 rpm and combined with the ultra-fast ISR transmission enables
top-level performance for the Pirelli model: 0 to 100 kmph acceleration in just
2.9 seconds and top speed reaching 350 kmph.
The collaboration between Lamborghini and Pirelli dates back
to 1963, the year in which Ferruccio Lamborghini turned to Pirelli to supply
the tyres for the first car of his newly established automotive company: the
350 GTV, presented as a prototype at the Turin Motor Show the same year.
