Lamborghini’s tribute to Pirelli

ADVERTORIAL — When the auto industry wishes to honour someone special, it sure gets the job done. Many honorary vehicles come to mind, including the Mercedes-Benz Stirling Moss, Shelby Cobra or even the Gallardo Valentino Balboni from Lamborghini, dedicated to one of its test drivers. This time, it’s an Aventador that Lamborghini wishes to dedicate to one of its oldest partners: Pirelli.

A long-standing partnership
Since the early 1960s, Lamborghini has only trusted one manufacturer for its luxury sports car tires: Pirelli. This iconic Italian company has been its exclusive tire supplier since the car manufacturer was founded in 1963. The Aventador honours a partnership that has been standing for more than half a century.

A racing car like you’ve never seen before
Lamborghini’s Aventador LP 700-4 Pirelli edition has been recently announced during the New York International Auto Show. This special edition is certainly Lamborghini’s most advanced supercar. Production of the Aventador will be extremely limited. It will only be available in six different colors including yellow, red, white, black, pale grey, and dark grey. The tires, Pirelli P Zeros, will be colour contrasting. Each will feature a thin red line on the tire’s black wall siding. Every Aventador, coupe or convertible, will sport the Pirelli logo. With its 6.5L 691-horsepower V12 engine, the most popular sports car ever designed by Lamborghini will surely please all of its collectors.

Brace yourselves: The first Aventador LP 700-4s should be delivered this summer.
