2013 IAA: Hamann does the Aventador Nervudo [Live Photos]

HAMANN Motorsport has introduced its latest modification package for the Lamborghini Aventador, which is popularly regarded as one of the most powerful sports cars ever made. German firm Hamann made use of its own body concept. It also tweaked the performance of the car. The HAMANN NERVUDO is all about individuality. The front spoiler has ducts built from carbon fibre, allowing it to suck fresh air.

The two-piece front spoiler is built using ultra-light, high-strength motorsport material. This spoiler gives more downforce to the front wheels, resulting in an intensified grip. It has optimized aerodynamics, courtesy of its new side skirts. As a result, the airflow on the underbody is stabilized. Furthermore, the inlet apertures made from carbon give cooling airflow to the 12-cylinder unit, which gets as much air as it requires from the air inlet covers on the engine compartment.

HAMANN used glass panels, giving us a view of the powerhouse inside. But panels made from visible carbon are also available for those who don’t want this seen. Numerous improvements were done to the rear. It got a new rear spoiler. The rear diffuser was also replaced with something built from carbon fiber. Even the adjustable rear spoiler is built from this material. As a result, its aerodynamic is improved.

The sports exhaust muffler has also been tweaked specifically for the NERVUDO. HAMANN offers a Race Version which backfires as an option. HAMANN gave the vehicle some newly designed light-alloy wheels. A forging process was used for the multi-part HAMANN PROFESSIONAL, ensuring very low unsprung mass to optimize driving dynamics.

It rides on high-performance rims in 9x20 and 13x21 inches, covered with ultra high-performance tyres in 255/30ZR20 size at the front and 355/25/ZR21 at the rear. To boost its performance levels, HAMANN completely reworked the ECU, allowing the twelve cylinder to have an output of 760 hp (559 kW) from the standard figure of 700 hp (515 kW). Its engine has also been modified to now reach a maximum torque of 735 Newton metres (from 690 previously).
