Aventador revealed with upgraded engine and aero to celebrate Lamborghini’s 50 years – which about sums up how old the average Lambo buyer is, anyway.

In the run-up to the Shanghai Auto Show last week, initial images and details on an anniversary-edition Aventador leaked out all over the interwebs. By now, of course, Lamborghini has taken the wraps off the car, and has released both official photos and video of the special-edition Raging Bull. The Aventador LP720-4 50th Anniversary edition follows the Veneno in celebrating the half-century mark for the Bolognese automaker, forming part of a year-long celebration Lamborghini has in store.

It’s distinguished by a unique shade of yellow – the most popular color for new Lambos – with a redesigned aero package that’s 50 percent more efficient than the standard Aventador. The 6.5-liter V12 has been upgraded to 720 metric horsepower, and the interior mirrors the bodywork with black and yellow leather, uniquely stitched in a Q-Citura pattern which Lamborghini introduced on this special-edition supercar. Only 100 examples will be made, which is barely a drop in the bucket of the 1,000 Aventadors Lamborghini sells annually – twice as many as it did the Murcielago before it.

To showcase the new Anniversario edition Aventador, Sant’Agata released this brief video clip that aptly illustrates the gap between the age at which most first fall in love with Lamborghinis and that of those who actually buy them. See what we mean in the promo clip below.

Lamborghini preparing its fastest ever supercar

Lamborghini will reveal its fastest car ever at next month’s 2013 Geneva Motor Show according to the brand’s design director, Filippo Perini.Perini confirmed the company’s plans with CarAdvice at today’s Global Dynamic Launch of the new Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster (above) in Miami.

“Lamborghini will celebrate their 50th Anniversary by revealing something truly special at Geneva this year,” he said.

“It will be the fastest car Lamborghini has ever produced and will be very low volume. Less than 10 cars will be produced and most of them have most likely been sold.”

When asked about the motivation for such an extreme car, Perini replied, “We want to shock the world with this car.”

It’s not the first time Lamborghini has set out to create a highly exclusive limited edition model, and evidently, there’s no shortage of willing buyers, despite the financial doom and gloom that still lingers.

In 1968 it did the one off Miura Roadster and followed up in the 1970s with the Lamborghini Miura Jota

More recently, Lamborghini revealed the limited edition track-only Sesto Elemento (above) at the 2010 Paris motor show. The company agreed to build only 20 and all have reportedly been sold for 1.9 million euro ($2.5 million) each.

The more extreme Lamborghini Aventador J (above) was revealed at the 2012 Geneva motor show, which was reputedly sold off the initial sketches by Perini for around 2 million euro plus taxes ($2.6 million) and was paid up front.
According to Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann, the iconic Italian sports car maker will continue to invest in special edition cars.

“One-offs and low volume special editions are part of Lamborghini’s DNA – they allow us to be purists.”

Lamborghini director of research and development Maurizio Reggiani also told CarAdvice the car to be shown in Geneva will be for the road.
“Unlike the Sesto Elemento, which was only for the track, the car to be revealed in Geneva will be homologated for the road, although it won’t be a new model,” he said.
