Things here are just mind-boggling.
In the world of super cars and exotics, things are often mind-bogglingly crazy when it comes to performance, design, and engineering. Then there are the few aftermarket companies that create something that makes the stock super cars seem rather pedestrian and boring. The Mansory Carbonado Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 upgrade is one of those.
Aircraft-inspired stealth and carbon fiber is the name of the game here, and the engine may as well be something that powers an aircraft. The Mansory Carbonado takes the all-new 6.5-liter V-12 engine in the Aventador and adds on a pair of turbochargers that raise all sorts of hell behind the driver. To handle the added boost pressure, the once naturally-aspirated engine was outfitted with new pistons, connecting rods, rod bearings, crankshaft, and crank and cylinder heads used in racing. The entire exhaust system from the manifolds to the tailpipes and everything in between was replaced with high performance components that reduce backpressure as much as possible while creating a thunderous V-12 turbocharged symphony. After all the modifications, the stealthy super car has a payload of 1,250 horsepower and electronically-limited 509 lb-ft. (690 Nm) of torque, enabling the Carbonado to reach 62 mph in just 2.6 seconds and a top speed of 236 mph (380 km/h).
Equally as impressive as the 1,250 horsepower engine is the entire aerodynamic upgrade made from lightweight prepreg autoclave carbon fiber weave in an exclusive stealth look. Things start out at the front with a new bumper with enlarged air intakes, daytime running lights, and a new lip spoiler. Behind the headlights are new vents that are integrated into the hood and front fenders and create a very aggressive appearance when paired up with the 40 mm front and 50 mm rear fenders. New side skirts connect the muscular fenders and help redirect air into the rear air intakes for the engine and brakes. The rear was given a new diffuser and bumper combo with integrated center exhaust and a large spoiler wing with a profile that resembles that of a bird’s wingspan.
The stealthy carbon fiber look of the Mansory Carbonado is even worn by the new wheels that fill in those powerful fenders. New five-spoke forged wheels with a dynamic turbine-style design with carbon fiber inlays are installed in a wide 9.0 x 20 front and 13.0 x 21 rear fitment with VA 255/30 ZR20 front and HA 345/25 ZR21 rear Pirelli PZero tires that can handle the incredible top speed.
Inside, the carbon fiber aerospace theme continues with the starter button being repositioned to the roof of the car where it is now a red aircraft-style switch. Soft and durable leather is worn throughout the dashboard and seating with hand-stitched accents featured on the sports steering wheel. Carbon fiber is used in almost every nook and cranny from the doors to the center console, while aluminum pedals give a sportier feel for the driver.
The new Mansory Carbonado Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 conversion will be at the 83rd Geneva International Auto Show in all of its carbon fiber glory. Pricing for the conversion has not been released.
