All of us know that DMC loves Lamborghinis: we saw it this summer in Cannes, we recently wrote an article about the first tuning programme for the Huracan etc. Still, DMC is working on a new Lamborghini called the Aventador LP988 Edizione GT.
As you can see from the photos, the Aventador LP988 Edizione GT comes with a new body kit consisting of a new front lip spoiler, new side sills, a redesigned front hood, headlights with red accents, a big rear wing, a new cover for the engine and a big rear air diffuser with integrated exhaust system.
Under the hood, we have the same 6.5-liter V12 engine that delivers an impressive 988 hp. The bad news is that we have no details regarding the performances of the Aventador LP988 Edizione GT.
For those who don’t know, the “standard” Lamborghini Aventador is powered by the same 6.5-liter V12 engine rated at 700 hp (515 kW) and 690 Nm (507 lb-ft) of torque.
With these numbers, the Aventador hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph). Imagine what the Aventador LP988 Edizione GT could do with its 988 hp!
For Lamborghini, design is always the grandeur of audacious potency, the class of stunning dynamics. From the first look, the newly-released Aventador is undeniably a Lamborghini, dressed in the brand's trademark and exclusive design language - with its remarkably robust sizes, its accurate lines and exact surfaces, and with rigid muscularity in every single one of its details.
The designers in the Centro Stile Lamborghini have meticulously developed this design language to provide the Lamborghini Aventador an extraordinary new edge. It is a revolutionary masterpiece, a remarkably dynamic sculpture, from the keenly honed front end through the remarkably low roofline to the distinguishable rear diffuser. Every line has an evident function, every shape is directed by its demand for speed, yet the entire appearance is nothing short of outstanding and sensational.
The doors open upward – of course
Truly noteworthy sizes originate from a total length of 4,78 meters (188.19 in.) matched with an amazing breadth of 2,26 meters (88.98 in.) including the exterior mirrors, and highlighted further by a remarkably low height of only 1.136 mm (44.72 in.). It's well-known that the two doors of the carbon-fiber monocoque open upward - a component that was first revealed in the now iconic Countach and then utilized for ensuing V12 models such as Diablo and Murciélago.
However, the Aventador likewise evokes its immediate forerunner the Murciélago - electronically operated air intakes open depending on the outdoor temperature and the requirement for cooling air, guaranteeing peak aerodynamic productivity. What's more, for those wishing to parade the heart of their Lamborghini, the optional transparent motor bonnet displays the twelve-cylinder engine like a technical masterpiece in a display case.
