German Special Customs Estatura GXX based on Lamborghini Aventador

Article by Christian A., on May 22, 2012

If you don’t like the Lamborghini Aventador Triangle, German Special Customs has an alternative for you: the Estatura GXX. This is a more extreme version of the Aventador featuring carbon-titanium front and rear bumpers, carbon-titanium side skirts, an adjustable racing wing made from the same material and a carbon-titanium hood.

The exhaust system was also changed with a new titanium black one, while the ultralight wheels complete the design. The engine remains the same: a 6.5-liter V12 with 700 hp and 690 Newton meters (509 lb-ft) at 5,500 rpm.

As expected, the vehicle is lighter than the standard model and we expect it to be be faster. For those who don’t know, the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 sprints from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph).

Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 is not just any super sports car. As a matter of fact, it is a super sports car embedded with the Italian company’s purist DNA. Will it disappoint Lamborghini fans? As far as we are concerned, every Lamborghini vehicle is a piece of art implanted with the latest in technology and functionality.

Thus, Lamborghini gave birth to its own design philosophy -- 'form follows function.' Yes, every form and shape as well as every line and detail on any Lamborghini is derived from function – speed dynamics, performance.

As for the new Aventador LP700-4, Lamborghini’s designers have made sure that it adheres to the carmaker’s design philosophy. Much more than that, designers took the philosophy a notch more serious than before. The Aventador LP700-4 features intense razor-sharp lines conveyed with precision that makes the super sports car unrivalled in auto design.

It also features clean, firm and executed surfaces that show Lamborghini’s outstanding competence and experience in carbon-fiber body shell design. Additionally, the roof surface of the Aventador LP700-4 features a new geometry that provides more room for its occupant while giving relief to the lines of the front section.

This new geometry also allowed the Aventador LP700-4 to score a better aerodynamic coefficient, thereby adhering to Lamborghini's design philosophy. Likewise, the vehicle’s engine cover features the same styling, which provides continuity to the philosophy.

Lamborghini’s new flagship, the Aventador, boasts a full monocoque. Its entire occupant cell is one single physical component, also including a tub and roof. This ensures exceptional rigidity as well as outstanding driving precision and a very high degree of passive safety for both driver and passengers. The whole monocoque weighs 147.5 kilograms.

This monocoque, together with the Aluminium frames for both front and rear, features an impressive mix of a torsional stiffness of 35,000 Nm per degree and merely weighs 229.5 kg.

Lamborghini engineers have developed an entirely new high-performance, high-revving yet greatly compact power unit for the Aventador LP700-4. At 235 kg, it is also impressively lightweight. Moreover, its V12 delivers 700 hp at 8,250 rpm, setting a new benchmark, even among super sports cars. The torque output is up to a maximum of 509 lb-ft at 5,500 rpm.

The car’s well-rounded torque curve, its bull-like pulling power, its spontaneous responsiveness, and its finely modulated yet always emotional acoustics all together make the engine a power plant of the highest order.

Additionally, engineers at Lamborghini were able to create the perfect partnership between the new 12-cylinder engine and the highly innovative Independent Shifting Rods or ISR transmission. They were able to clearly formulate a development objective of not just building the fastest ever robotized gearbox, but also of creating the most emotional gear shift in the world.
