Lamborghini Aventador Pirelli Edition

"Pirelli edition Lamborghini Aventador exterior"

Lamborghini fans, here’s some exciting news.

As the celebration of the New Year goes on, Lamborghini has a new and refreshing reason to celebrate. The recent partnership of Lamborghini with the tire manufacturer Pirelli is all the reason for the company to release the special edition of  Pirelli Aventador.

Both the Italian firms are known to have worked closely together in the past. In fact, let’s put it this way: Every Bull that has ragingly bolted with its respective galloping horses from Lambo’s manufacturing unit (in Sant’Agata Bolognese) has had the Pirelli shoes on them. The partnership began back in 1963 and ever since, the companies have worked closely together.

Besides the Italian origins that both companies share, there is also a constant quest for technological innovation that thrusts these companies ahead.

A very obvious piece of information is that the Aventador LP-700-4 is a limited edition bull. However, a few people with lady luck and the year 2015 in their favor will get to ride or in fact, even own this spectacular machine.

The Pirelli Edition Aventador will be offered in the choice of the coupe or roadster body style and will be produced in a special series. These Lambo’s should reach your garage by Summer-2015.

Engine:

Apart from all the existing bells and whistles that the original LP-700 had, the Pirelli Limited Edition Lamborghini Aventador will feature some serious Tire-walloping equipment.

An aggressive 700 HP 6.5-liter V12 engine that comes along with paddle-shift transmission, push rod suspension will fire up the Lambo. It will also have the permanent all-wheel drive that the Aventador is famous for. The special Pirelli series is enhanced by exclusive equipment specifically designed by the Lamborghini Centro Stile.

The power train on this Limited edition beast provides 515 kW (700 hp) at 8.250 U/min and is combined with the ultra-fast ISR transmission. The powerful transmission enables -level performance for the Pirelli model: 0 to 100 km/h acceleration in just 2.9 seconds and top speed reaching 350 km/h.

Exteriors:

The Limited Edition brutal-bull has a unique color scheme and details. The vehicle sports a two-tone color scheme in two options. The first option has a matte back for the roof, pillars, rear view mirrors, engine hood as well as the front, rear, side and moving air intakes, in contrast with six glossy finishes for the rest of the body. The body has 6 glossy colors available for the rest of the body; Giallo Spica, Rosso Mars, Bianco Isis, Nero Aldebaran, Grigio Liqueo, and Grigio Ater.

The second option of the Lamborghini-Aventador Pirelli Edition will have a glossy black finish for its upper parts. Parts such as the air intakes, in contrast with four matte finishes for the rest of the exterior will be available. The colors include Bianco Canopus, Nero Nemesis, Grigio Adamas, and Grigio Titans.

Another unique and distinctive element of the body is the thin red stripe that runs along the roof, rear view mirrors, and the outer profiles of the air intakes, a stylistic feature designed to evoke the unmistakable Pirelli branding.

The Pirelli Logo will appear in a ravishing red color and it will be visible at the start of the two roof lines and on the tires.

The exteriors will also include: Transparent engine hood, the engine compartment in carbon, glossy black Dione 20″/21″rims, P Zero tires with red logo and red calipers. The Rosso mars exterior will be available only in yellow color.

Interiors:

Upholstered with a catchy and attractive black Alcantara with red contrast stitching, the Aventador Pirelli Edition is that temptation that is just too irresistible. The red striped that appear on the body have a continuation inside as well. The stripes appear and run along the interior ceiling as well as the seats. The Lamborghini and Pirelli crests are embroidered in red. The vehicle also has leather inserts that adorn the door panels as well as the sides of the seats. To top it off, each limited edition car will have a “Pirelli special series” plaque inside. Isn’t this the best limited edition car ever?

Bottom Line:

Getting one of these beauties requires insane amount of luck and money. But, reading about this requires none. Various Lamborghini dealers are currently taking orders for the car. The units are being produced and should reach the respective owners garage by summer-2015. Apart from the Limited edition Aventador, the company is working on a new breed of its flagship super car. This new supercar might carry the SuperVeloce title and might be mightier than the existing bulls.

AUTOBOTS Unmasked – the real automobiles behind the Transformers

Transformers Fan? No matter which side (autobots / decepticons) you are on. Read on, for the newer and revolutionary automotive casts that bring out newer identities that might have made you jump out of excitement.

Wouldn’t you love it if your car suddenly transformed into an Autobot? Well, we’ve all been there. Unfortunately, you’ve either got to be really drunk or dreaming high to see that happen. But, hadn’t it been for the expensive CGI’s and special effects, our favourite Autobots or decepticons might have been inanimate wallpapers on our screens (where’s the fun in that right?)

Let’s dig in a little deeper and uncover a few of the vehicles that put the previous Transformer films to shame.

THE SUPREME AUTOBOT:

Undeniably, the most loved (bulky yet effective) hero who has won millions of fans after the Transformers hit the big screens, Optimus prime, the virtual hero and the most loved character in the Transformers series, was formerly a Kenworth k100 cab-over truck (in the cartoon) that underwent a major overhaul by the Western Star Prototype, underwent major transformations, physically and digitally. Although the flaming paint job might have struck a certain amount of controversy, the all-new design would put all the issues at bay. Optimus Prime comes in a new avatar; flaunting huge chrome accents, exhaust stacks and a heart -throbbing look that put all the controversies at bay. The credits go to the prototype designed by Western Star Trucks (under the Daimler Auto Group)

BUMBLEBEE (Then and Now)

Introduced as Sam Witwicky’s (ShiaLeBouf) best friend, the 1967 Chevrolet Camaro that was later transformed into (then new) Chevrolet Camaro has a whole new look in the latest Transformers movie.

The Autobot scout that cruised around with a retro look was shown in a sexier and orgasmic avatar, the Chevrolet Camaro 2014 Super Sport. This look is definitely to die for.

Cross Hairs Sting Ray:

A perfect opportune to invade the skies and rule the racetrack, Chevrolet showcased the 2014 C7 Corvette Stingray; the autobot (abrasive with a cocky attitude) that transforms into Cross Hairs, a paratrooper that gives the Decepticons, a run for their bolts.  The lime green beauty that musters up its rage under the hood takes on the roads and skies.

DISGUISED “DRIFT”

An Autobot by heart, and a decepticon by looks, meet the street legal Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse 2013, an expensive (US $ 2.25 million) addition, a breath taker and a conqueror of the actual roads that smashes its rivals black and blue, this bolt of lightning goes by the name “Drift” in disguise. Watch this Autobot with an unfinished business and a thirst to regain its lost honor, avenge its enemies with its massive (1200) horse power and a 253.81 mph speed.

THE “HOUND” READY TO POUND:

Another elephantine sized heavy duty vehicle after Optimus Prime, The movie brings you up close and personal with the Autobot commando, Hound, transforms from an Oshkosh Defense Medium Tactical Vehicle which in reality belongs to a family of heavy duty vehicles that are currently manufactured by the Oshkosh Corporation. Hound was formerly a Jeep (in the cartoon series) but the movie has given a newer definition to Hound by changing the complete look and transforming it into a decepticon pounding commando.

Saved by RATCHET

Playing the role of a medical officer in the transformers movie, ratchet transforms into a green rescue Hummer H2 and also into a red and white striped ambulance with flashy lights that looks like a cargo van.

A TWISTED “LOCKDOWN”:

Sleek, slender and possessing sinister traits,  “Lockdown” the grey 2013 Lamborghini LP 700-4 Coupe, disappointingly is not an Autobot, neither is it a part of the Decepticon’s army. A bounty hunter replaced the previous “Lamborghini Murcielago” with ease. With only 4000 units made, Lamborghini proudly flaunted the Aventador, best in its class and a fame that makes you’d still love this legendary bull albeit it’s twisted role in the movie.

STINGER

Possessing gory colors, a Decepticon that was supposedly built by a human specializes in spying and sabotaging all good that Autobots stand for, the 2013 Pagani Huayra (Pronounced “wai-rah”) might lack the looks of a Lamborghini, but it is the epitome of pure bred speed infused with state of the art technical aerodynamics. Being one such car that provides flawless handling is definitely a dangerous demon on wheels for the Autobots. Pagani motors, an Italian Premium car Manufacturer is also known for cars such as its popular “Pagani Zonda”.

JUNK HEAP

The obvious, Decepticon which transforms into a Waste Management Truck, Chevrolet trax has been recruited to do the dirty yet effective job. Playing villainous roles, the Jukheap is featured in a differently colored Chevrolet Traxes on screen. These vehicles are also supposedly made by humans (in the movie) and later join the decepticons. This perfectly sized crossover is an offering from Chevrolet motors, sports its rally car which has an impressive design, nimble and confident handling capabilities, and goes easy on your fuel.

THE DECEIVING DECEPTICON

Another human made transformer that becomes the Decepticon overlord. GALVATRON, transforms into an impressive looking 2014 Freighliner Argosy cab-over-trailer. The black and grey colored definer of doom looks very impressive. The Freightliner Argosy trucks are extremely agile and immaculately structured.  The North American descendant looks evil yet breath-taking.

Bottom Line: These vehicles might have played different roles in the movie, yet they have impacted our hearts – a lot 🙂
