Mansory Gives Lamborghini Aventador S Carbon Fiber Makeover

Tuning / 3 Comments

It looks surprisingly restrained compared to some of Mansory’s other modified cars.

After making its much-anticipated world debut at Pebble Beach last week, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is still fresh in our minds. This hasn't stopped aftermarket tuners from giving the Aventador S some attention, however. While cars modified by German tuner Mansory tend to be controversial, this new carbon fiber package available for the Lamborghini Aventador S is surprisingly subtle. Practically every part of the exterior gets the carbon fiber treatment, from the engine cover to the rear diffuser.

Mansory also adds a new carbon fiber hood, front and side air intakes, headlamp housings, side skirts, and rear wing. The tuner can even replace the standard windscreen wiper covers with lightweight carbon fiber ones on request, though the weight-saving benefits are probably debateable. Mansory says customers who want their Aventador S to stand out from the crowd can choose from 15 different carbon fabrics available in a wide range of colors. The modified Aventador S also rides on forged wheels with a visible carbon inlay and are wrapped in Pirelli P Zero tires.

While the exterior of Mansory's Lamborghini Aventador S has been given a carbon fiber makeover, the supercar has been left mechanically stock. Under the hood is a naturally aspirated 6.5-liter V12 that delivers 730 hp and 509 lb-ft of torque, enabling the supercar to hit 62 mph from a standstill in 2.9 seconds and go on to a top speed of 217 mph. The Aventador S is no longer the most powerful version of Lamborghini's flagship supercar, as the SVJ produces a substantial 770 hp and 531 lb-ft of torque.
