One only has to look at the various one-off Pagani Zonda’s to know that when enough cash is on the table, consumers can almost bend car manufacturers to produce custom components and cars at their will. Of course, that doesn’t seem to be the case for Lamborghini.
A Chinese customer is reported to have approached Lamborghini to have an LP670-4 SV wing attached to his Gallardo LP560-4 but interestingly, Lamborghini refused to make the install despite decent money being on the table.
On one hand this does surprise us as installing the SV wing on a Gallardo shouldn’t be all that strenuous but on the other hand, Lamborghini clearly doesn’t like the recycle components from model to model even if it is on a customer’s request.
As a result, the man involved asked DMC Germany and it seems that he got a better deal from DMC than he could have ever hoped for from Lamborghini itself. Rather than just fitting the SV wing to the Gallardo and cutting the legs to fit the car, which Lamborghini probably would have done, DMC Germany managed to completely re-engineer the unit to suit the overall proportions of the Gallardo, as well as not hindering the car’s aerodynamics.
Rather than just spending all this time developing a one-off unit, DMC Germany has decided to put the rear wing on sale for special requests although no pricing details have been released just yet.
