Mansory Updates Aventador Carbonado

Supercars / Comments

Tuner liberally applies carbon fiber to the Aventador while boosting power to 1,250 horsepower.

German tuner Mansory descended upon the 2013 Geneva Motor Show with a fleet of restyled models, the most outrageous of which is that based on the Lamborghini Aventador. The same supercar arrived at last year's show wearing a modest red body kit, but this time around the tuner with a penchant for the ridiculous descends upon the Swiss show with an updated version of its Carbonado program it unveiled in the middle of last year.

Carbonado is better known as Black Diamond, and it's the appearance of the precious gemstone that the tuner has attempted to replicate on the Raging Bull by liberally applying carbon-fiber components including a new roof, hood, front lip spoiler, front and rear wings, and side skirts. Ultralight alloys with carbon-fiber inlays, staggered a 20/21 inches front/rear, complete the exterior mods. Further modifications have also been made under the hood, where Mansory has completely reworked the 6.5-liter V12, fitting two turbochargers and replacing the pistons, connecting rods, bearings, crankshaft, crank and cylinder heads.

Aided by a new exhaust system, output has increased to a massive 1,250 horsepower, up from 700 stock. The result is a new 0-62 mph time of 2.6 seconds (down from 2.9) and a top speed of 237 mph (up from 217). Hand-stitched leather adorns the cabin, which boasts a new sports steering wheel, non-slip aluminum pedals, and carbon-fiber trim on the doors, fittings and center console. As a final flourish, Mansory moved the starter button to the roof lining in the style of an aircraft cockpit.
