The Lamborghini Aventador had a date with Oakley Designs this weekend, and the venue of choice was Italian Car Day at the Brooklands Museum in Surrey, England. For the second time this year, the Aventador underwent a transformation from factory model to modified monster, this time called the Aventador LP760-2. In July, German customization company Mansory came out with their own modified Aventador Carbonado LP 700-4.
The most noteworthy modification on the Oakley Aventador is its transformation into a rear wheel drive vehicle from all wheel drive. By doing so, Oakley eliminated 298 pounds from the car’s drive train. Wider wheels are also lighter than Lamborghini’s, eliminating another 11 pounds from the overall weight of the high performance gas guzzler.
Oakley bested not only the manufacturer, but also rival Mansory by squeezing 783 horses out of the 6.5 liter V12 engine; the factory-built Aventador clocks in at 700 hp while the Mansory Carbonado puts out 760 hp. This is thanks to a lightweight, all-Titanium exhaust system featuring an enlarged air intake pipe as well as an extension of the front bumper to aid in the cooling of the beefed-up beast.
With the help of an electronically controlled rear spoiler, the Oakley Aventador reaches 0-60 mph in under 2.9 seconds. Potential buyers should move with comparable speed to Oakley’s website, as only five examples of the Oakley Design Aventador LP760-2 will be built, and three of them are already accounted for.
