Lamborghini announced a special Pirelli Edition of its Aventador LP 700-4 to celebrate the ongoing partnership between the two brands, which began in 1963 when the company was established.

Since the Aventador does just fine with its 690-hp, 509 lb-ft V12, seven-speed automatic, pushrod suspension and permanent all-wheel drive, the changes come on the exterior, which gets a two-tone color scheme in two options: One has a matte black roof, pillars, rearview mirrors, engine hood and air intakes with glossy finishes for the rest of the car. The second option is glossy black for the upper parts and your choice of four matte finishes for the rest.

The Pirelli Edition is on sale now, deliveries will start next year.

The Lamborghini Aventador Pirelli Edition also comes with a thin red stripe around the roof and engine hood, mirrors and the outlets of the air intakes. The red design is meant to evoke Pirelli branding; the tire logo also is in red. Buyers also get the transparent engine hood, carbon engine compartment trim and glossy black rims shod with Pirelli tires, of course.

Inside, the Pirelli Edition has black Alcantara with red contrast stitching as well as another red stripe that runs along the headliner. Door panels and seat sides get leather trim while each car will get a Pirelli special series plaque.

Pirelli and Lamborghini have been together since the founding of Ferruccio’s company, when it first put Pirelli Cinturato HS tires on its 350 GTV for the 1963 Turin Motor Show. Later, the Miura, the Espada and Countach all sported rubber from the tiremaker. It even made the Scorpion line, examples of which were installed on the LM002 off-road vehicle. Today it supplies all the tires for the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo series.

Pirelli Aventador Coupe and roadster versions are available now from dealers, for delivery in early summer of 2015.
