Modifying exotic supercars can be more expensive than buying another brand new supercar.
Initial images and a few details emerged of DMC's latest styling package a few weeks back. Dubbed the LP900 Molto Veloce (Italian for 'very fast'), the cost and some more details of the Aventador tuning package have now been revealed and it makes for eye-watering reading. In its entirety, the German tuner and Italian sports car specialist has priced up the package at an ice cool 125,000 Euros. That's significantly more than the cost of a new 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S.
Breaking it down into more palatable pieces, DMC has given the price of separate kits. First up, there's the exterior carbon-fiber styling kit made up of a front splitter & lower lip spoiler, side skirts, a new rear fascia with a diffuser, and a rear wing spoiler. This comes in at 19,500 Euros. At a mere 7,800 Euros, the cheapest part of the package is a new set of alloys from ADV1, followed by a comprehensive interior package at 17,700 Euros. Finally we come to the performance kit for the 6.5-liter V12 engine that comes in at a whopping 80,000 Euros.
For that, the supercar gets a complete valvetrain rebuild with twelve unique single intake throttle plates, a new fuel pump and lines, pressure modulators and new injector nozzles. Optimized engine electronics, and electronic load pressure control system and an overhaul of the wiring system further enhance the power capabilities of the V12, which DMC has given the new name of LP900. This can only mean power output has been boosted from the standard 700 to 900hp. Engine modifications should be made at the company's workshop in either Germany or Switzerland, while body components can be installed at any of DMC's global dealers.
"The Molto Veloce aims at Aventador owners that seek to add a little more exclusivity to their LP700," says Thorsten Grebers, Marketing Manager at DMC Germany. "The LP900 engine upgrade clearly targets speed enthusiasts."
