Italian manufacturer celebrates its relationship with Pirelli with limited-edition Aventador supercar

Lamborghini has revealed a special Pirelli Edition of the Aventador.

The model, which celebrates the Italian supercar manufacturer's relationship with the tyre company, will be produced in a limited run.

The Pirelli Edition keeps the standard Aventador's mechanical package, so power comes from the same 691bhp V12 engine as that of the regular road car. That's enough to get the Aventador to 62mph in 2.9sec and provide a top speed of 217mph.

Upgrades for the special edition include new two-tone paintwork, a painted stripe running the length of the car and the addition of Pirelli's logo.

Standard equipment includes a transparent engine cover, new carbonfibre and leather cabin trim, Pirelli P Zero tyres and new 20 and 21-inch alloy wheels. A special Pirelli plaque also features inside.

Lamborghini and Pirelli have been working together since Lamborghini's formation in 1963. Since then, all the firm's cars have been shod with Pirelli rubber.

Bring back the big pictures. We cannot get a good look at this car, or any other, now that we only get tiny pictures on this site.

 

I'm a disillusioned former Citroëniste.

Yeah, why can't I enlarge the pictures anymore, instead I get these small one's under the main picture.

On many comments list, you ask for page two and it keeps giving you page one, so you can't see the comments people made thereafter.

oh so u have stopped big pictures.... not good i want images that fill my 27" imac screen....

Okay, the loss of the enlarged pictures is a pain but so is the fact that Lamborghini is doing tart and stripe specials so early in the product cycle of their top-line car. VW knows how to part fools from their money that's for sure. Sadly, in an effort to boost sales, Ferrari will be close behind.
