The Lamborghini Aventador is a very impressive machine. Who would have thought that the Murcielago could be out done. But they did. Equipped with a 6.5L V12 engine and a 7speed dual clutch transmission, the new stylings of the Aventador are amazing. Though we have had the privelage in the past of working on several other supercars such as the Lamborghini LP640, Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster, Bugatti Veyron, and a heap of other Ferrari and Porsche cars, its not everyday that something the cost of a house you get to play with. As an established customer having just modified his Ferrari 458 with a set of HRE Wheels, he was ready to make this Aventador simply stunning.
The first modifications we did was the Niche 1 piece forged wheels in 20×9 and 21×13 with Pirelli tires. The cost of the tires fitted alone could have equipped several tuner cars needs! The Pirelli were a 255/30/20 up front and a 355/25/21 in the rear. With the dark tinted and brushed finished, the wheels matched with matte black finish very well while showing off the large yellow carbon ceramic brakes.
Because the Aventador already has some extreme styling, we wanted to give the rear end a stronger more aggressive look to follow the rake of the car. We mounted a Mansory matte carbon wing to get this done. The base of the wing replaces the factory part and then features 2 uprights with the top level wing blade. This still functions with the hydraulic system that raises at a certain speed. The precision and quality of the Mansory is amazing down to the engraved carbon fiber logo from Mansory. Having done a previous Range Rover with a full Mansory kit, we expected nothing less.
The final piece to this upgrade kit was the Capristo Racing Exhaust for the Lamborghini. Capristo has always focused on highly engineered and tested exhaust system for top level sports cars. Their portfolio of exhausts fit everything from Ferrari, Porsche, Mercedes, Bentley, and of course, Lamborghini. The Capristo system for the Aventador is no different. The factory exhaust is extremely heavy and definitely restricts the sound of the V12 engine. Not only saving weight off the rear end, the exhaust system enables you to exceed the factory 700HP Lamborghini has given it. Like every other Lamborghini I have personally heard revving up, its make any one in audible range stop what their doing to go see what this F1 race car like sound is! Check out the photos and the 2 videos we put together on this completed project.
