Leaked: Lamborghini Aventador LP720-4

The supercar, celebrating the company's 50th anniversary, will debut at Shanghai motor show.

Pictures of the Lamborghini Aventador LP720-4 50 Anniversario leaked from Germany’s Auto Bild magazine on Wednesday, before its reveal at the Shanghai auto show.


The new car is said to make 720 hp -- which would make sense, considering the name -- from the same 6.5-liter V12 engine as the basic Aventador. Power goes to all four wheels through Lamborghini’s ISR (independent shifting rod) transmission.


The new Lambo will wear a coat of Giallo Maggio (May yellow), which could be a reference to the month the company was founded in 1963. Lower carbon-fiber aero elements have also been redesigned, leading to a claimed 50 percent increase in aerodynamic efficiency.


We’ll learn more as the Shanghai auto show approaches. For now, check out the photos below.

Gorgeous, but yellow is a HORRIBLE color.  Couldn't they have made a Rosso Maggio???
