Mansory does the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4

Article by Andrew Christian, on October 15, 2014

Just like any other respectable tuning company, Mansory decided to upgrade the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4. As you folks remember, Mansory already revealed its Aventador-based Carbonado at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, but this time the Aventador is closer to what we like.

The Italian supercar received a new carbon fiber front lip spoiler, new side sills, a fixed rear wing as well as a new carbon fiber air diffuser with integrated exhaust system.

Moreover, a new set of wheels were added, featuring carbon fiber inlays and having a diameter of 20-inch at the front and 21-inch at the rear.

There are no details regarding engine upgrades but we do know that the 6.5-liter V12 found on the Carbonado GT delivered an impressive 1,600 hp and a maximum torque of 1,200 Nm. These numbers enabled the vehicle to zoom from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.1 seconds, while top speed was a staggering 380 km/h or 236 mph.

The proportions of the Lamborghini Aventador are what onlookers would first notice. Even if it measures 4.78 meters long and 2.26 meters wide with the exterior mirror, the 2013 Aventador stands at only 1.136 meters tall. The impression given by the width is emphasized further by the headlamp units and air intakes that are widely spaced.

The rather incredibly low front of the 2013 Aventador gives it a unique arrow form with the bull insignia gracing the point and center line, and continuing on its path on the whole length of the car. The air guides are profiled powerfully and this is emphasized further through the black and glossy frames.

The bi-xenon headlamps of the 2013 Aventador are grouped with the LED units to allow for daytime running lights and it has indicators under the hexagonal casings. The daytime running light is made possible by the LED light guides that are wrapped in a Y form around the main headlamp.

An additional 7 LEDs deliver the light source used by the indicator. The side view appears to be extremely long but it is dominated by a low roofline and 2 sweeping strokes. The first stroke highlights the front wheel arch while the second one is composed of a sharply drawn line that starts in the front wheel arch and runs through the entire side like a very tensed muscle and ends on the rear wheel.

The mighty sill bear and the deeply recessed door are additional testimony to the unwavering functionality that is part of the Lamborghini design. These forms all serve one main purpose which is to give the maximum amount of cooling air to what is already a highly powerful V12 engine.

Behind the upward-opening doors are large air intakes that are guarded with a fine mesh and enclosed in plastic frames. The engine air intake itself is found on the roof pillar just behind its third side window. When the 2013 Aventador is on the road and the cooling requirements become rather high, additional air channels located in the rear wheel arches are opened up.
