We Think We Know the 2 SUVs Volkswagen Philippines is Bringing In This Year

Ayala, it seems, likes to play guessing games. Earlier this year, it was all about guessing which three (well, now four) vehicles that Kia’s unboxing in 2019.

Auto Shanghai 2013: Lamborghini Celebrates 50 Years with Aventador LP 720-4 Anniversario

In celebration of its 50th birthday and against the backdrop of the Shanghai Auto Show, Automobili Lamborghini presented a very special super sports car with exclusive equipment and technology.

With its output increased to 720 hp, its new performance-oriented front and rear design, the special paintwork and unique interior trim, this Aventador is one of the most exclusive models ever produced in the history of Lamborghini.

The Aventador LP 720-4 50° Anniversario represents a new highlight of this globally successful model range with carbon-fiber monocoque, twelve-cylinder engine and permanent all-wheel drive.
