The renowned high-end tuner Mansory has unleashed a spectacular Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4-based 1600-horsepower Carbonado GT supercar.

Almost all parts one can imagine are made of a lightweight carbon-fiber. Mansory purposefully continued to use it in the completely reworked Mansory Carbonado GT 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. A carbon fiber weave with a stealth-look is being used, which is being exclusively deployed by Mansory in vehicle construction.

Optimized Aerodynamics

An eye-catching new feature of the newly styled Aventador front is the striking skirt with the optimized 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 1.6 inch (40 millimeters) on the front and by a remarkable 2 inches (50 millimeters) 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 stabilizes 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.

Tuned 6.5-liter V12 Engine

The Lamborghini Aventador by Mansory doesn't only impress with its fascinating design. The company has completely reworked the Aventador's 6.5-liter 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 Furthermore the pistons, connecting rods, rod bearings, crankshaft, crank and cylinder head have been replaced by motor racing parts and now meet the high demands of Kourosh Mansory.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 GT achieves an impressive 1600 hp (1176 kW), while the maximum electronically-limited torque increases to 885 lb-ft (1200 Nm). This accelerates the bi-turbo twelve-cylinder from zero to 60 mph in a breathtaking 2.1 seconds. The top speed is faster than 230 mph (370 km/h) which is also significantly higher than with the base vehicle.
