Prindiville enhances the Lamborghini Aventador

Article by Christian Andrei, on January 25, 2012

For the relaunch of Prindiville (a London-based bespoke coachbuilder), a lineup of performance enhancements and stylish visual tuning packages has been offered for three of the famous iconic vehicles of today -- the Ferrari 458, Range Rover Evoque and Lamborghini Aventador.

With its decades of experience in automotive design as well as carbon-fiber construction and engineering techniques, Prindiville has developed a personalization program for these three vehicles that will enable discerning individuals to enjoy a bespoke, one-of-a-kind vehicle that’s manufactured by skilled British technicians and craftsmen.

The replacement body panels are made of aircraft-grade carbon fiber and provide weight savings of at most 65% versus standard items. At the same time, they offer an extra visual flourish that brings the Prindiville interpretation outside the traditional showroom variant.

Moreover, Prindiville has also developed titanium high-performance exhaust systems for the vehicles, which are around 80% lighter than the standard ones. High-flow induction systems and uprated ECUs boost power, making the most of the weight reduction. Also available are upgraded brakes and suspension packages.

In the interior, the Prindiville Design collection can be trimmed to the owner's preferences. They can choose from a wide array of luxurious leathers and other premium upholstery materials, which are available in a massive assortment of colors. Exclusive to the Prindiville Design are luxurious interior "jewellery packs", which changes the conventional cabin trim components with alternatives made from highly polished milled aluminum.

Taking its cue from both the Spanish Corrida and its own car making tradition, the new flagship from Lamborghini has the name of a bull. Aventador was the name of the bull that won the "Trofeo de la Peña La Madroñera" when it was entered into competition in 1993 at the Saragossa Arena.

Extreme dynamics: Meant for a Lamborghini

Design has always meant beauty in aggression for Lamborghini. That usually meant an elegant yet dynamic design. Even with only one look, the Aventador is undoubtedly a Lamborghini as it exudes all the characteristics and the one of a kind design philosophy of the car brand. It has powerful proportions, tight muscularity in all of the details, precise surfaces and exact lines.

The designers working at Centro Stile Lamborghini have meticulously developed the design language to give the new Lamborghini Aventador an edge. It is a masterpiece with its dynamic sculpture: from the front end through the very low roofline to the one-of-a-kind rear diffuser. Each line you see here has a clear use and every form is shaped by aerodynamics, but the overall appearance is breathtaking and spectacular.

The doors: Opening heavenward!

The car has a length of 4.78 meters, width of 2.26 meters and a very low 1,136 mm in height. With that impressive proportion, the doors add more allure by opening upward, the same feature that you have seen in the legendary Countach and all the V12 models that come out after.

Lamborghini Aventador, however, also takes its cue from the Murciélago, in that it has electronically managed air intakes that vary its opening based on the temperature outside and the demands for cooling air so that you get the best aerodynamics. If you want, you can opt to get a transparent engine bonnet to let people see the twelve-cylinder engine inside.
