Known for its stealthy design and 700 hp engine, the Aventador (Lamborghini’s latest creation) has become the centerpiece of Oakley Design’s new tuning project, a car that will take the Aventador one step into the future and one step into the past.
Why into the future? Well, because the guys over at Oakley Design decided to add 60 new hp to the existing 700 by remapping the ECU (the injection computer), manufacturing a new larger air intake pipe and by also giving the Aventador a new Titanium (yes, titanium) exhaust system. According to Oakley, this will bring the Italian manufactured car to a maximum of 760 hp and 745 Nm, saving at the same time over 30 kg of extra weight.
On the other hand, we said earlier, that this project will also take the Aventador one step into the past, and that’s because Oakley intends to scrap the 4 by 4 all-wheel-drive to a Diablo style rear wheel drive that will also help in saving some precious weight. In fact, according to the UK based tuners, we’re talking here about 85 kilograms (front differential, drive shafts and associated front drive train elements). And what’s best, because of the overall design of the car, the Aventador will have nothing to lose from this major make over.
Also, Oakley Design says that it will offer a full body kit with new redesigned aerodynamic elements and carbon fiber made roof top, door mirrors and engine bay covers.
