Hot blooded rear-wheel drive bull.
The Lamborghini Aventador, the successor to the Murciélago, has just begun deliveries to a few select customers. And while the car itself can be considered special and rare, there has not been a limited edition or performance model announced. But the Lamborghini tuning experts at Oakley Design already have a limited edition model planned, one that boasts rear-wheel drive, carbon fiber aerodynamics, and a 760 bhp engine.
Oakley Design’s goals for the Lamborghini Aventador were to shed weight wherever possible without sacrificing comfort, and to create a truly unique sports car. To do this, Oakley Design is working to remove the front differential, drive shafts, and other drivetrain parts that send power to the front wheels, thus saving approximately 187 lbs. (85 kg), and creating a rear-wheel drive monster. In addition to the drivetrain upgrades, Oakley Design is working with HRE to create an ultra-light forged alloy wheel in the Oakley P40 design. The wheels will save 8.8 lbs. (4 kg) each, and utilize the factory 255/35ZR19 front and 355/30ZR20 rear Pirelli PZero tires. At the front, Oakley has increased the wheel width from 9.0J to 9.5 inches at the front and 12.0J to 13.0J at the rear for even greater grip.
The Italian wedge-shaped monster also gains better aerodynamics with the help of Oakley Design. Both the front and rear bumper trims and side air intakes have been extended for improved cooling. Along each side of the LP760-2 are new carbon fiber sills that can be color matched or left in exposed carbon for an aggressive look. To achieve even greater aerodynamic downforce, Oakley Design has developed a new gurney flap and rear diffuser in the MIRA wind tunnel. Oakley has also replaced the side mirrors, engine bay cover, and roof with carbon fiber components.
The new Lamborghini Aventador uses a state-of-the-art 6.5-liter V-12 engine positioned behind the driver to achieve unrivaled performance. Although the V-12 is rated at 690 bhp and 508 lb-ft. of torque stock, Oakley Design has set its sights on 760 bhp and 550 lb-ft. of torque. The power increase will come from a new titanium exhaust that saves over 66 lbs., a retuned ECU, bigger airbox, and larger diameter intake feed pipe. The new exhaust will also proudly wear the Oakley Design logo on the exhaust cover and burnt blue tips.
The Oakley Design Lamborghini Aventador LP760-2 will be limited to a production of just five cars. Customers who aren’t lucky enough to purchase one of the five can order individual accessories for their Aventador. Three cars have already been spoken for, only two remain!
