Back in December, DMC showed us the first photos of their special Aventador LP988 Edizione GT. Today, the well-known tuning company revealed the first photos with the real vehicle and honestly, the supercar looks really impressive.
Developed with FIA regulations in mind, the Aventador LP988 Edizione GT received a new body kit consisting of a new front lip spoiler, side sills, a carbon fiber engine hood, a brand new rear air diffuser with integrated exhaust system as well as a big rear wing.
The 6.5-liter V12 engine was also upgraded and boosted from 700 to 988 hp. There are no details regarding the performances of the vehicle, but we do know that the standard engine develops 700 hp (515 kW), 690 Nm (507 lb-ft) of torque and pushes the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.9 seconds, while top speed is 350 km/h or 217 mph.
For those interested, the Aventador LP988 Edizione GT costs a hefty $288,888.
The Lamborghini Aventador’s design represents the bull’s courageous nature since its name was derived from a bull that won the “Trofeo de la Pena La Madronera” in Spain. Even though, the Aventador still looks every inch a Lamborghini.
Bringing out the beauty that goes with aggressive power has always been part of Lamborghini’s design language. There is also the elegance that goes with its stunning dynamics that undeniably shines above other labels. The new Aventador is donning the same powerful proportions, precise details and athletic stance of the Italian brand.
Centro Stile Lamborghini hones every product to perfection and is behind the Aventador’s edgy new design. This contemporary masterpiece features the most dynamic sculpture ever to come out from Lamborghi’s design language. This basic principle is executed perfectly on the distinctive rear diffuser, very low roofline and the enhanced front end of the new model. Its designers have meticulously developed the new Aventador so that every shape and line demonstrates function and performance.
The Lamborghi Aventador measures 44.72 inches tall, 88.98 inches wide and 188.19 inches long. As expected, the fibre monocoque doors are designed to open upward as seen in the epic Murcielago, Diablo and Countach models. Apparently, the new Aventador and the Murcielago bear the same electronically managed air intakes.
To ensure optimum aerodynamic efficiency, this air intake instinctively opens based on the cooling requirements and outside temperature. In addition, Lamborghini offers the see-through engine bonnet as an option for those who want to marvel at the 12-cylinder engine without lifting up the hood.
New Aventador also comes with spacious interior environment and is equipped with Lamborghini’s state-of-the-art technology. The car’s interior showcases the most premium, high-grade materials and is crafted exclusively for the Italian brand. It also features the latest generation dashboard inspired by the aeroplane cockpit where the instrument panel is displayed on a TFT LCD monitor. There is also the red switch cover at the centre tunnel to start the engine. A separate screen exclusively for the navigation system and multi-media use also comes with the new interior.
