As expected, Lamborghini has unveiled a more outrageous version of its Aventador supercar called the LP720-4 50 Anniversario edition, featuring more power, and additional visual and handling upgrades.

Limited to just 100 units world wide, each LP720-4 will have a forged composite badge celebrating the Italian automakers 50 year anniversary.

The vehicle features a special paint finish and a unique interior trim. In fact, the Giallo Maggio yellow paint job is a tribute to the most popular color choice by Lamborghini customers since the Lamborghini Miura. There are also a few exterior bits contrasted with a matte black finish which help show off the supercar’s gorgeous lines.

Under the hood is the same V12 engine used in Aventadors of old, but calibrated to make 20 more horsepower. This means that when paired with the cars four-wheel drive system and ISR transmission, the Aventador can sprint to 62 mph in 2.9 seconds, and reach a top speed of 217 mph.

The most noticeable change with this model is the newly designed front and rear fascias. Front air intakes along with an aerodynamic splitter are now larger and extended, and small wings on the sides of the new splitter are there as well. Lamborghini says that the rear end is completely new, and follows suit with the front end with a bigger diffuser and new touches to help with engine ventilation. Overall, the car has improved aerodynamic efficiency, which contributes to greater stability at the extreme limits of the car.

Inside, the car features a new stitching pattern, which is the only highlight inside this Italian masterpiece, and isn’t found on any other Lamborghini out there.
