Lamborghini Aventador Triangle by German Special Customs

Article by Christian Andrei, on May 21, 2012

German Special Customs (same company that created the badass Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG Stealth) focused their attention on the Lamborghini Aventador. Dubbed Triangle GSC, the new body kit takes the Italian supercar to another level, but not at the same level you all may love.

Although we are tuning fans we might believe that improving the Lamborghini Aventador might he a blasphemy.

German Special Customs created a new carbon fiber front bumper, new carbon side sills, a rear carbon fiber rear bumper with integrated titanium exhaust featuring four pipes and a new rear spoiler.

The engine of the car remains the same, which means you will enjoy the same sound made by the impressive 6.5-liter V12 engine delivering 515 kW / 700 hp and 690 Newton meters (509 lb-ft) at 5,500 rpm.

The standard version is able to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph). Unfortunately, we don’t have official data regarding the Triangle GSC Aventador, but we don’t expect to see any improvements.

Lamborghini continues to etch a name in the arena of carbon fiber use after making the material a key and a major part of its latest super sports car, the new Aventador LP700-4. Aiming to create an ideal vehicle with the design philosophy of “form follows function,” the design as well as the use of carbon fiber allowed the Lamborghini to implement a lightweight design for the Aventador LP700-4.

The Lamborghini flagship features a full monocoque construction made from carbon fiber materials that are conceived and produced entirely by the carmaker in Sant'Agata Bolognese. The use of the material in the Aventador LP700-4 strongly demonstrates the carmaker’s global leading expertise in carbon-fiber technology.

In fact, Lamborghini is the only carmaker to have fully mastered the extensive CFRP process across a range of technologies in-house: 3D design, simulation, test, production and validation. Lamborghini only employs state-of-the-art industrial processes that adhere to the highest quality standards.

The Aventador marks the first time that Lamborghini is employing its in-house developed and patented technologies into series production. For instance, the Aventador LP700-4’s cell -- made entirely from carbon fiber -- has been designed as a monocoque structure and is engineered as a "single shell" that functions physically as one component.

In a way, the structure takes full advantage of the extreme rigidity of CFRP. In fact, race cars competing in Formula 1 have been built using CFRP monocoques, and their rigidity has been tested from time to time during crashes. Also, a number of road-going sports cars use a monocoque structure for their carbon fiber occupant cell, which in turn works like a safe roll cage.
