Lamborghini Aventador SV 52

A total of 5,000 Lamborghini Aventadors have been produced at the company’s headquarters in Sant Aganta, Bologna. The celebratory car (number 5,000) was a Rosso Bia red Roadster model that will be headed to a buyer in Italy. The milestone took a total of 4.5 years to achieve.

With that, the Aventador has officially proved itself as a more popular model than its predecessor, the Murcielago. The latter, which was produced from 2001 and 2010 saw a total of only 4,099 units made throughout the period.

The Aventador sports a naturally-aspirated 6.5 litre V12 engine that’s mated to Lamborghini’s seven-speed ISR engine. The LP700-4 and LP700-4 Roadster produces a total of 700 hp and 690 Nm of torque and 690 Nm, while the LP750-4 Superveloce and Superveloce Roadster generates 750 hp and 690 Nm of torque.

Over the years, a few limited editions have been added into the fold, this include the Lamborghini Aventador 50 Anniversario Edition (in coupe and roadster versions) and the Pirelli Edition, which saw the supercar with a special two-tone paint.

The Italian carmaker’s flagship model is expected to be getting a facelift some time soon and perhaps another special edition will be lumped into the mix, in the coming years. One thing that’s for sure; the 5,000 unit mark will likely be broken soon.
