DMC Lamborghini Aventador LP900-4

Lamborghini Aventador too slow and too subtle for you? Let DMC help



By some accounts, the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 isn't perfect. There have been grumbles about the harshness of the single-clutch ISR gearbox. Others have found too much understeer at the limit.

Problems, problems.

It certainly hasn't, however, been found wanting for power. 700hp and 509 lb ft in a car with a claimed kerbweight of 1575kg equals 451hp/ton, 0-62mph in 2.9seconds and 217mph flat out. Quick enough for most.

Bargain Veyron Sport alternative?

German tuner DMC is clearly not most. Their latest creation, a styling and performance package for the Aventador, is the LP-900 Molto Veloce (literally, very fast).

As with the standard car, the numbers relate to the power output. Yes, the DMC Aventador has 900hp, notably achieved without any kind of forced induction. Instead, DMC completely rebuilds the valvetrain of the 6.5-litre V12, adding individual intake throttle plates and replacing the fuel pump, lines and injectors. The engine management electronics have also been completely revised. A new titanium exhaust system weighing just 3.4kg finishes the mechanical mods. The cost of that little lot: 80,000 euros (£64,500).

On top of that you have the DMC styling package, just in case you feel you're not attracting enough stares with your regular Aventador. The 19,500-euro (£15,700) bodykit comprises a new front splitter, side skirts, rear diffuser and wing, all in carbon fibre. The wheels are another 8000 euros (£6400).

Not spent enough yet? An interior package is on offer at nearly 18,000 euros (£14,500). No images available for this particular upgrade, implying it might be even more 'unique' than the outside.

DMC will bundle up the total Molto Veloce package, with all the performance and styling upgrades, for 125,000 euros (£100,000). Insert your own Run DMC joke here.

A little too "Mansory" perhaps, however with a less offensive colour selection, I think that could look half nice .... The factory SV variant will be sure to be more cohesive though.

Interesting how the same design of wheel can look good in wide rear form, and quite boring in narrow (relatively) front form.

And there I was thinking that it was going to get limited to 66mph and come with it's own personal Doc Hudson.


Edit: Make that Doc Emmett Brown and 88mph. *facepalm*

Engine mod/exhaust price seems almost reasonable on a 250k car...

Engine mods and price seem fine for a 200bhp upgrade, that bodykit is disgusting though!

At least they have the good grace to package the styling options seperately from the powertrain mods. You could, I presume, just plump for the 900bhp upgrade and leave the car looking stock.

900bhp is really quite impressive from that engine without forced induction. Surely that's got to be approaching 10,000rpm to achieve that?

Are Lambo's not shouty enough for some ?

like the idea of the added go but I would be mildly embarassed turning up somewhere in that, not for the shy or subtle.

It looks like they've copied all the aero bits from GT5 to be honest.

I think they have used the Aventador J one-off as an inspiration for the aero package.

Keep the wheels and a couple of the body bits off the car, if I was 11, that's bedroom wall material!

I wonder how it drives.

Probably yikes when you get around to pressing the stopping peddle as that's seems to be the only area that's not been touched!

Love the power (sounds like a proper job rebuilding that badboy), quite like the bodykit too, although the wheels are a step into hideous to me.

Blingy tuning houses are usually quite a turnoff. They always seem to be trying too hard and as such the finished article doesn't seem genuine.

In the past 10 years or so, Lamborghini's designs have calmed down somewhat from the unforgettable 80's Countach and 90's Diablo.

This effort from DMC brings that back and I, for one, welcome our new Aventador styling overlords smile
