The Lamborghini Aventador is a mid-engined sports car that made its debut at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. By the second half of 2011, Lamborghini had already sold out more than 12 units of the production version of the Aventador proving that the Italian automaker is still as capable as ever in wooing the public with its outrageous vehicles.
The Aventador comes with a 6.5-liter V12 engine that can produce as much as 700 horsepower and 508 lb.-ft. of torque. It is a carbon fiber monocoque sporting aluminum front and rear frames. Overall, if looks could kill, then the Lamborghini Aventador would probably be a deadly weapon.
However, there have been a few technical issues with the Aventador that owners and critics have taken notice. A few of which are its iffy gearbox, issues with ride quality, and the Audi switchgear in its cabin which is a turnoff for some people. But who cares about these issues if the Aventador can deliver power that’s beyond your comprehension? The car can launch itself from 0 to 60 mph in a matter of 2.9 seconds and has a recorded top speed of 217 mph. It’s pretty fast thanks to its carbon fiber body.
Humans as we are, there are just some things that we couldn’t be satisfied with and that’s exactly what’s wrong with the Aventador. There are people who aren’t satisfied with this 700 horsepower V12 speed-thirsty machine but luckily, Capristo Exhaust is here to help. For a price of $7,400, Capristo will give you the speed you need for that Lamborghini Aventador.
The almost seven-and-three-quarters-worth package comes with a valve controlled exhaust system and a Standard Exhaust Remote Control Kit with Lambo Plugs. The former comes with mounting points and hangers as well as mufflers that were crafted in a “true Capristo fashion”, made from high-grade polished stainless steel. The valve system can be opened and closed by using a remote control, a fascinating feature for an upgraded Aventador. Vacuum actuated valves are also retained in Capristo’s package so that exhaust flow can be controlled even during various driving conditions.
Weight reduction is also a key for any car to run faster, that is why the Capristo Exhaust package comes with lighter exhaust pipes that can also (allegedly) give some power boost for the Aventador. Fitted with this stainless steel set-up, Capristo claims that power and torque will increase by 34 horsepower and 545 lb.-ft., respectively; that is why the company claims that this will give owners the same feel of driving in the rpm range and driving in normal conditions. The car can now accelerate in only 2.8 seconds and will have a top speed of 220 mph, 4 mph faster than the basic vehicle.
Now the most awaited part that many of us are interested in – how will the Aventador in Capristo Exhaust sound? Well, from videos that we have seen featuring this Aventador upgrade, it’s difficult to tell the difference with the volumes. Though, we do feel that it’s a definite improvement. The Capristo Exhaust package does not diminish the monstrous tone of the V12 engine and neither does it have restrictive factory exhaust sound regulations. It comes with a distinct Capristo sound that harmonizes perfectly with the Aventador’s sonorous engine vocals.
