Pirelli has been Lamborghini's sole tire supplier since its establishment in 1963, so it was about time they got their special edition as well. The resulting two-tone Aventador Pirelli will be available both as a roadster and as a coupe.

The first combination consists of a matte black roof, mirrors, pillars, engine cover and air intakes with a glossy finish for the rest with six colors to choose from. The other is the opposite, with a glossy top and one of four matte colors for the remaining bits.

The standard package also includes the transparent engine cover, the carbon engine compartment, glossy black 20"/21" wheels and red brake calipers, or yellow in case you went with a Rosso Mars exterior.
