Mansory has revealed the Lamborghini Aventador-based Carbonado ahead of its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show.
As the name already suggests, the Carbonada has plenty of carbon fibre. The new aerodynamic body kit includes new front skirt featuring redesigned air intakes, side skirts, rear spoiler with a built-in diffuser and a revised front lip spoiler. The roof and engine compartment cover are also made of carbon fibre.
Compared to the standard Aventador, the sides have grown by 40 millimetres on the front and by a remarkable 50 millimetres on the rear axle in width.
The biggest news is under the bonnet. The 6.5-litre V12 is fitted with two large turbochargers, custom connecting rods, pistons, rod bearings, cylinder head and crankshaft. A new exhaust system with stainless steel tailpipes is also installed.
As a result the output is an impressive 1,250 hp, up from 700 hp compared to the stock engine. 0-62mph comes now in just 2.6 seconds and the top speed is 236 mph.
All this rides on new forged rims with carbon fiber inlays measuring 9×20 at the front and 13×21 at the rear wrapped with Pirelli P Zero tyres.
No pricing details were released, but we do know just 6 cars will be built.
Lamborghini Aventador with stealth-look carbon fibre and 1250 hp
Carbon fibre everywhere the eye can see: The ultralight and high-strength material of carbon fibre finds ample uses even in the series version of the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4. MANSORY purposefully continued to use it in the completely reworked MANSORY CARBONADO as the main component of all its bodywork components. Every single element of the MANSORY aerodynamic design is made in prepreg autoclave process in perfect surface quality and precision-built into the vehicle. For the first time in the world a carbon fibre weave with a stealth-look is being used, which is being exclusively deployed by MANSORY in vehicle construction.
An eye-catching new feature of the newly styled Aventador front is the striking skirt with the optimised air intakes for improved ventilation of the front radiator. In combination with the new front lip spoiler and the proprietary developed daytime running lights MANSORY has not only achieved an aggressive appearance but also generated additional drive. Also the front wing, as well as the bonnet will be exchanged and replaced by proprietary developments. The sides have grown by 40 millimetres on the front and by a remarkable 50 millimetres on the rear axle in width.
Newly designed side skirts are also fitted. These steady the air flow between the axles and feed additional cooling air into the drive unit and the rear braking system through integrated routing channels. The diffuser built into the new rear spoiler stabilises the rear at high speeds and creates surface contact pressure together with the enlarged rear wing on the rear axle. The body styling kit is completed by the replacement of the roof and engine compartment cover by all-carbon elements. But the MANSORY customized Aventador impresses not only with its fascinating design. MANSORY has completely reworked the 6.5 litre V12 cylinder and fitted it with two MANSORY turbochargers. Furthermore the pistons, connecting rods, rod bearings, crankshaft, crank and cylinder head have been replaced by motor racing
parts and now meet the high demands of Kourosh Mansory. Together with the newly designed exhaust system from the manifold right up to the stainless steel tailpipes, which give superior performance characteristics. Instead of 700 hp (515 kW) the CARBONADO achieves an impressive 1250 hp (920 kW), while the maximum electronically-limited torque increases to 690 Nm. This accelerates the bi-turbo twelve-cylinder from zero to one hundred (km/h) in a breathtaking 2.6 seconds. The top speed is 380 km/h which is also significantly higher than with the base vehicle.
Of course, only the best components are worth considering for the conversion of engine power into propulsion: As the perfect wheel-tyre combination MANSORY has MANSORY built ultralight striking forged rims with carbon fibre inlays with 9.0 x 20 and 13.0 x 21 dimensions with Pirelli P ZERO tyres in VA 255/30 ZR20 and HA 345/25 ZR21 sizes. The Lamborghini refinement program finds a perfect fulfilment in the extensive interior applications. Naturally only the finest of materials are used. The processed leather used for the seats as well as the dashboard is particularly durable yet still
extraordinarily soft. This characteristic natural product with its individual graining and the perfect hand stitching conveys an air of extravagant flair around the newly designed sports steering wheel with airbag. In order to accent the character of the CARBONADO interior even more non-slip aluminium pedals as well as genuine carbon fibre components are used on the doors, the fittings and the centre console.
The newly positioned starter button presents one of the technical highlights of the interior. In the style of an aircraft cockpit switch MANSORY has relocated this red switch from the centre console to the roof lining. MANSORY Design & Holding GmbH exclusively offers their own specially developed modification accessories. It does not trade in complete vehicles and also does not offer these for sale.
