We always just assumed that Lamborghini engineers were the final word in Lambo performance. It stands to reason that with so much passion, knowledge, and outright craziness, the Lamborghini-designed offerings couldn’t get any faster or better looking. How wrong we were.
Aftermarket outfitter Mansory - a company that has tinkered with such vehicles as the Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG and Aston Martin DBS in the past – has now turned its tuning mastery on the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4.
The result is something perfectly out of this world. Mansory took the stock 700 horsepower 6.5-liter V12 Aventador engine and virtually threw it all away. Engineers replaced the pistons, connecting rods, rod bearings, crankshaft, crank, cylinder head, and topped it all off with twin turbochargers. The Mansory Aventador now produces a staggering 1250 horsepower. That kind of power pushes the LP700-4 from 0-62 miles per hour in 2.6 seconds.
Mansory didn’t stop with the engine. The body, which now shows off its carbon fiber construction, is 40 millimeters wider in the front and 50 mm wider in the back. On the interior, Mansory has processed leather to the seats and dashboard as well as some non-slip pedals. The Mansory Aventador also brings carbon fiber touches around the doors and center console. Distinctively, Mansory moved the starter button to the roof, to give the special edition Aventador more of an aircraft feel.
While we don’t yet know how much it’ll cost, we presume it’d be near the $1-millon mark. Check back for more info as the 2013 Geneva Auto Show kicks into gear.
