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.
