Capristo Carbonates the Lamborghini Aventador


The flagship Lamborghini has a new aftermarket package from Germany.
Capristo has developed an extensive new tuning job for the Lamborghini Aventador. The customized Italian supercar now packs a brand-new exhaust system developed by German engineers and a spectacular body built completely out of carbon-fiber reinforced plastic. Since the Aventador's debut at the Geneva Motor Show last year, the flagship Lamborghini has proven quite popular with tuning firms, with everyone from DMC to Wheelsandmore taking a crack at the latest Raging Bull.

Capristo has shaved roughly 200 lbs from the Aventador's curb weight, bringing that total down to 3,472 lbs thanks to the carbon body kit that includes a new diffuser, front lip spoiler, grille, side mirrors, engine cowling, trunk lining and air inlets. To take the twelve-cylinder Lamborghini to its full potential, the German tuner has also added a new 1.4828 stainless-steel exhaust system for some extra boost. With a freer-breathing 6.5-liter V12, Capisto claims its custom Aventador can now sprint from 0-62 mph in 2.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 220 mph.

These figures represent improvements over the factory numbers by 0.1 seconds and 3mph, respectively. Apparently Capristo is still toying with the one-off Lamborghini Aventador aftermarket program and they plan further improvements for better balance between weight and power. Underbody work, wheel housings and side sills are all on the German firm's docket for modifications.
