Mansory Updates Aventador Carbonado


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

German tunerMansory descended upon the 2013 GenevaMotor Show with a fleet of restyled models, the most outrageous of which is that based on the Lamborghini Aventador. The same supercar arrived at lastyear’s show wearing a modest red body kit, but this time around the tuner with apenchant for the ridiculous descends upon the Swiss show with an updatedversion 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.
