Mansory does the Lamborghini Aventador Carbonado

Article by Christian Andrei, on July 19, 2012

The Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 is a unique flagship super sports car in a sense that it features a carbon fiber structure. The use of such material has made the Aventador LP700-4 super rigid and super light. Tuning specialist MANSORY Design & Holding GmbH, however, also created a tuned version of the Aventador -- the MANSORY CARBONADO.

Interestingly, all the bodywork elements that MANSORY created for the Aventador LP700-4 were all made of carbon fiber. Each individual element of the Kourosh Mansory aerodynamic design is made with impeccable surface finish through the prepeg autoclave method before they are embedded seamlessly into the super sports car.

With just one look, people will instantly notice the striking apron on the CARBONADO`s front body, bearing optimized air inlets for enhanced ventilation of the front coolers. Along with the new front lip and its proprietary daytime driving lights, MANSORY was able to give the CARBONADO a more aggressive look but allowed for additional downthrust.

MANSORY removed the Aventador’s front wings and bonnet and replaced them with proprietary versions. The super sports car is also now wider by 40 millimeters on the front axle and by 50 millimeters on the rear axle.

The tuning company also installed newly designed side sill sets, which work to steady the airflow between the axles and direct additional cool air to the drive unit and the rear brake system. MANSORY also integrated the diffuser into the new rear apron, thereby making the rear stable at high speed. The diffuser along with an enlarged rear wing produces contact pressure at the rear axle.

MANSORY also replaced the roof and engine-compartment covers with carbon-fiber elements. The German tuning company also implemented a number of changes to the Aventador’s performance hardware and software.

To increase the Aventador’s engine power and acceleration push, the company installed an optimized engine-management system and a high performance exhaust system. These changes allowed the 12-cylinder engine to develop 754 PS (555 kW) at 8,300 rpm and 750 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm, in turn enabling the MANSORY CARBONATO to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds and to reach a top speed of 355 km/h.

The vehicle is also fitted with ultra-light forged rims with carbon-fiber inlays at sizes 9.0 x 20 and 13.0 x 21. The rims are wrapped with tires at sizes VA 255/30 ZR20 and HA 345/25 ZR21. MANSORY also did not forget to make some revisions inside the CARBONATO.

MANSORY used only the most luxurious materials available like treated leather for the seats and dashboard. Additionally, the newly designed airbag sports steering wheel is also wrapped in leather. MANSORY also installed non-slip aluminum pedals and real carbon-fiber components in the CARBONATO. When produced, only six examples of the MANSORY CARBONATO will be available.

Mansory Carbonado Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4

Carbon as far as the eye can see: the ultra-light and ultra-strong material of carbon is already present in abundance in the standard version of the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4. In the MANSORY CARBONADO model, of which only six specimens are being manufactured, MANSORY continues to use the material consistently as the main component of all its bodywork elements. Each individual element of the Kourosh Mansory aerodynamic design is produced with perfect surface finish using the prepeg autoclave method and then built seamlessly into the car. And so the Aventador is transformed into the MANSORY CARBONADO, the most exclusive carbon compound found on the roads – the Black Diamond of the streets.

The series version of the Lamborghini already makes opulent use of the ultralight and high-strength material carbon fibre. And MANSORY continues this use as the main element of its bodywork components. Every single element of the MANSORY aerodynamic design is manufactured to perfect finish quality in the prepreg-autoclave process and fitted snugly into place on the vehicle.

The eye-catcher of the CARBONADO's newly designed front body is the striking apron with its optimised air inlets for improved ventilation of the front coolers. In combination with the new front lip and its proprietary daytime driving lights, MANSORY not only achieves an aggressive look, but also generates additional downthrust. The front wings, as well as the bonnet, are removed and replaced with proprietary versions. The sides grow by 40 millimetres in width on the front axle and an impressive 50 millimetres on the rear axle. Newly designed side sill sets are also fitted. These steady the airflow between the axles and, thanks to built-in channels, direct additional cool air to the drive unit and the rear brake system. The diffuser integrated into the new rear apron stabilises the rear at high speed and, in connection with the enlarged rear wing, produces contact pressure at the rear axle. The body package is completed by exchanging the roof and engine-compartment covers with carbon-fibre elements.

But it is not only through attractive design that MANSORY's customised Aventador impresses. Thanks to an optimised engine-management system and a high performance exhaust system, both engine power and acceleration are improved. Thanks to 754 PS / 555 kW at 8,300 rpm and 750 Nm at 6,000 rpm, the 12-cylinder accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in a breath-taking 2.8 seconds. The top speed of 355 km/h is also higher than with the basic vehicle.

As a perfect wheel-tyre combination, MANSORY fits striking, ultralight forged rims with carbon-fibre inlays in the sizes 9.0 x 20 and 13.0 x 21 with tyres in the sizes VA 255/30 ZR20 and HA 345/25 ZR21.

The extensive interior additions provide a perfect completion to the Lamborghini customisation programme. It goes without saying that only the most luxurious materials are used. The treated leather for the seats and dashboard is both particularly hardwearing and unusually soft. The natural product, with its individual grain and perfectly crafted stitching, gives a feeling of extravagance to the newly designed airbag sports steering wheel. To emphasise the interior's sporty character even further, MANSORY installs non-slip aluminium pedals and real carbon-fibre components.

MANSORY Design & Holding GmbH offers only its in-house developed tuning accessories. The company does not offer its own make as "complete" vehicle, neither does the company deal with such type of vehicles.
