Lamborghini is certainly no stranger when it comes to offering special edition models of its vehicles, which are even more rare than their already-exclusive supercars. For buyers who have the funds necessary to put the flagship Aventador into their garage, the automaker has unveiled a special-edition Aventador Pirelli Edition, which aims to give buyers a new way to stand out from the crowd when it arrives this summer.
Specifically designed to celebrate the iconic and storied relationship between the Italian Lamborghini and equally-Italian Pirelli that first began with the 350 GTV prototype, these special Aventadors retain all of the hardware found in their more “mainstream” siblings while adding several unique touches to the exterior styling that allows them to standout from other Aventadors.
The Pirelli Edition is available in two distinct styles. The first features a matte black roof, pillars, mirrors, and intake covers, with the rest of the car being capable of being painted in six available shades of high gloss paint. On the opposite side of the spectrum, buyers can cover the aforementioned sections in gloss paint while covering the body in one of four shades of matte paint. Regardless of which paint scheme is chosen, a thin red stripe adorns the roof, mirrors, engine cover, air intakes and mirrors. Gloss black wheels and red brake calipers (yellow for Rosso Mars spec models) round out the exterior tweaks and give the car a uniform yet distinctive appearance.
The design theme set in the exterior continues to the interior, with the Aventador Pirelli Edition featuring black Alcantara fabric and red stitching on the seats; crests for both Lamborghini and Pirelli adorn the seatbacks. That delicately-placed red stripe also works its way into the cabin and covers the ceiling and the seats. As expected from a special edition models, a dash-mounted plaque is part of the package, denoting each car’s place in the production run.
Performance hardware remains unchanged from the “regular” Aventador, with each model powered by the illustrious 6.5-liter V12 engine making 691 horsepower mated to a seven-speed semi-automatic gearbox and a four wheel-drive system. That’s good for a 0-60 mph time of 2.8 seconds.
It is unknown how many units of the Aventador Pirelli Edition Lamborghini will produce, but ordering is now open and the first units are expected to begin arriving in the summer of 2015. Lamborghini did not release official pricing for the Pirelli Editions, but expect a noticeable premium over a base Aventador coupe or roadster, which carries a base price of $397,500.
