German aftermarket tuning firm DMC is no stranger to Italian supercars, turning its attention to countless Lamborghinis and Ferraris over the years.
Without question, supercars are some of the greatest human creations, Italian ones in particular. Despite their high price tags owners across the globe think these cars are worth every penny. But as we all know, there's no such thing as having too much horsepower or grandiose styling. Enter DMC, a German aftermarket tuning outfit that specializes in upgrading the performance and exterior of Lamborghinis. It has also turned its attention to some Ferraris and Maseratis and we've picked five examples that really caught our attention.
We just had to start with this bright orange Aventador. Called the DMC Aventador LP900 SV Limited Edition, just 10 of these Aventador J-inspired sets were built. New styling bits include new carbon-fiber front and rear bumpers and a restyled front fascia that's now wider and sharper - a direct nod to the Aventador J. There's also a new titanium exhaust and an oversized rear spoiler and an optimized ECU.
Ah yes, the new Ferrari F12berlinetta. DMC's take on the Italian exotic has been dubbed "Spia", which is Italian for "spy." Although development isn't complete just yet, the tuner has revealed some details such as those forged alloy wheels and a new performance package. Output has been increased from 740 to 764 horsepower due to the addition of a titanium exhaust. The carbon-fiber body kit includes a new lip spoiler, hood, roof scoop, extended side skirts a rear diffuser and a 599XX-inspired rear wing.
The Lamborghini Murcielago may be gone but it's not forgotten. Fortunately, DMC also did some work to Lambo's former flagship before its replacement debuted. One of its projects was this body kit that was inspired by the Murcielago SV's styling. This carbon-fiber kit includes new bumpers, integrated rear diffuser and a large rear wing. There's also a stainless-steel and metallic catalytic converter. Carbon-fiber trim adorns the interior as well but it's the ECU remap that caught our attention the most. Power has been boosted from 572 to an even 600 horsepower.
Matte orange just seems to always look great on Italian exotics. This tuned Maserati GranCabrio is actually the result of a joint effort by DMC and Canadian tuner SR Auto Group. The combined tuners upgraded the open top's 4.7-liter V8 via a supercharger, resulting in an additional 150 horsepower for a final figure of 590 hp. There's also a more aggressive body kit featuring a new front bumper and lip spoiler, widebody side skirts and a rear spoiler and diffuser. Along with an upgraded exhaust system, the car is paired up with a set of PUR Monoblock alloys, measuring 20-inches up front and 21-inches out back.
The Gallardo will soon be discontinued, but DMC isn't done with it just yet. Focusing specifically on units built between 2003 and 2007, the tuner has developed a new carbon-fiber body kit in order to give those older cars a more modern look. Owners can also request to have the V10 engine upgraded with an additional 40 horsepower and 22 pound-feet of torque. Add to that a new stainless-steel exhaust system for improved sound, top speed tops off at 200 mph.
