[dropcap size=small]S[/dropcap]ant’Agata Bolognese-based Italian supercar manufacturer Lamborghini celebrates the long and ongoing history of collaboration with prestigious Italian tire manufacturer Pirelli with a very special edition of the Aventador LP 700-4.
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 tires. The Aventador LP 700-4 Pirelli Edition maintains all its unique technical features, first and foremost the carbon fiber 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 color scheme in two options. Another distinctive element of the body is a thin red stripe that runs along the roof and the engine hood, the rearview 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 tires.
The powertrain providing 515 kW (700 hp) at 8,250 U/min combined with the ultra-fast ISR transmission enables top-level performance for the Pirelli model: 0 to 100 km/h acceleration in just 2.9 seconds and top speed reaching 350 km/h. The new Aventador Pirelli Edition, available in Coupé and Roadsterversions, will be produced in a special series available for delivery early summer 2015.
