DMC is known for its tuning kits developed that upgrade Italian cars such as Lamborghini, but their latest masterpiece is out of this world. This is the car they designed if someone didn’t care about money. Priced at $2.5 million, the so-called Lamborghini Aventador Unico LP1200-4R Concept feature twin-turbochargers for the 6.5-liter V12 engine that increases its power to an impressive 1,200 hp (882 kW).

Still, depending on the pressure settings as well as on the type of fuel, the V12 engine delivers 1,500 hp (1,103). What’s really impressive is that DMC can push the engine to 2,000 hp (1,471) if the customer wants to. That amount of power can be obtained if the displacement of the engine is increased from 6.5 liter to 7.7-liters.

In terms if design the Aventador Unico LP1200-4R Concept is extreme and comes with a new bodykit featuring larger air intakes, additional air vents, a new adjustable fin air brake system, gold-plated spokes, gold-plated intakes, a custom engine cover, adjustable ride height and adjustable valve system.

New wheels are also added (20-inch on the front and 21-inch on the rear). According to DMC, the Aventador Unico LP1200-4R Concept is able to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.3 seconds and a top speed of more than 375 km/h or 233 mph.

When it comes to design, Lamborghinis have long been known to showcase that aggressive power is truly beautiful. Further, it also displays the elegance of spectacular dynamics. Being wrapped in the unique and characteristic design language, the new Aventador is a true Lamborghini, even upon seeing it for the first time. The precise surfaces, tight muscularity, exact lines, and strong proportions can be seen in each of the details.

This particular design language was developed by the designers, working in Centro Stile Lamborghini, in order to give this latest offering an added advantage. An excellent way to describe the Aventador would be that it is an avant-garde work of art.

Indeed, the sculpture is truly dynamic. This begins with the sharply honed front section going to the low roofline before ending in the unique diffuser in the rear. While each form is ruled by that need for speed, each line comes with a clear function. Despite this, the overall appearance is both breathtaking and spectacular. For those wondering where this new flagship model got its name, it refers to a bull.

Specifically, this bull is known for being a courageous animal in the Spanish Corrida. The Aventador name itself is taken from a bull that went to battle at the Saragossa Arena back in October 1993. Due to its outstanding courage, it was given the title "Trofeo de la Peña La Madroñera." Being a Lamborghini model, it won’t come as a surprise to many that the doors of the Aventador, which is made up of carbon-fiber monocoque, opens in an upward manner.

This particular feature was first seen in the now iconic Countach, after which it was then implemented in later V12 models like the Murciélago and the Diablo. Looking at the proportions, there is no doubt that they are truly impressive.

The overall length is impressive at 188.19 inches (4.78 meters) and is complemented by the remarkable total width, including the exterior mirrors, of 88.98 inches (2.26 meters). This combination is highlighted by the low height at 44.72 inches (1.136 meters).
