“Speechless” was our reaction when we saw this limited edition Aventador by Mansory, a German supercar modification company. You might remember an article we did on their Ferrari 458 Spider that they named the ‘Monaco Edition’.
The latest car to be unveiled is their version of the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4, it’s called the Carbonado named after the black diamond’s found in Africa and Brazil. They will only produce six of these supercars and they are all wrapped entirely in carbonfibre panels. Even the forged wheels, which measure 13 inches have carbonfibre inlays.
In addition to the exterior modifications, they have increased the width of the car by 50mm at the front and 50mm at the rear. Other alterations include a new racing style exhaust and an overall increase in power of the 6.5-litre V12 up to 743bhp to give this car a top speed of 221mph.
The interior has been given a fresh look with upgraded premium leather that is placed on the seats and across the dashboard to fit well with the carbon fibre steering wheel.
This special edition Mansory car coincides with the 1000th Lamborghini Aventador produced. The factory in Sant’ Agata Bolognese had a small celebration to mark this milestone. The 1000 car was finished in Argos Orange and given chassis number 1000. As it rolled off the assembly line there was a small handover ceremony with the new owner before the car was delivered to Germany.
The Lamborghini Aventador recently made its big screen debut under the command of Bruce Wayne in the last instalment of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, in The Dark Knight Rises. The success of the Aventador is set to continue as Lamborghini say the order book for the car cover the next 18 months of production.
