The Lamborghini Aventador is a two-seater hyper sportscar and was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 2011. The Aventador will replace the Murciélago and uses a 6.5-litre, V12 engine which produces 700 HP at 8,250 rpm and 509 lb-ft at 5,500 rpm. This output is just enough to sprint the car from 0-60 mph in just 2.9 seconds while blasting off a top speed of 217 mph.
The new DMC Aventador Limited Edition will be based on the LP700/LP900 package and judging by all this teasing, we presume it will be something special.
We don’t know what this new package will bring, but taking a look at DMC’s previous tuning packages for the Aventador, we can only imagine. The previous Molto Veloce was offered in two engine versions – 700 and 900 horsepower – so, is it too crazy for us to think this package may sneak nearer to the 1,000-horsepower mark?
Official debut will be made on December 12, 2012, so stay tuned for the official details.
Back in May, SR Auto Group unveiled the Project Supremacy, which was based on the new Lamborghini Aventador. Now, the Italian supercar is back in the tuner’s shop, but this time it adopts an even meaner look.
The project starts with the addition of PUR 4OUR Monoblock wheels sized 19 inches up front and 20 inches on the rear. The wheels are coated in Modern Black paint and the Aventador’s sexy exterior is coated in Nero Nemesis paint – a stunning matte black.
The Aventador has one of the widest rear ends you’ll ever see, helping exaggerate the concave profile that the rear wheels have. Precise offsets give Project Eternal a flush stance without compromising any of its remarkable handling.
Under the hood, things remain unchanged, as it features the standard 6.5-liter V-12 engine that delivers a total of 700 horsepower and 509 pound-feet of torque. With this amount of power, the Aventador will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds and up to a top speed of 217 mph.
As promised, today is the day that Lamborghini has dropped the official details on the new Aventador LP700-4 Roadster. The model has been described as "the most exciting series production Lamborghini ever built and the new benchmark in the world of open-top luxury super sports cars."
To no surprise, the new Roadster version features a design language similar to the coupe version, except for the changes any open-top model requires. For example, the rear pillar has been redesigned to offer total support for the removable roof and a new engine hood that features a central "spinal column" with two pairs of hexagonal windows connected at the sides.
The new Aventador Roadster is being offered with a two-piece roof made entirely from carbon fiber that can be stored in the front luggage compartment.
Under the hood you will find the same 6.5 liter aspirated V12 that delivers a total of 700 horsepower and mated to an ISR 7-speed gearbox. The Roadster version will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3 seconds and can hit a top speed of 217 mph.
In Europe the model can be already ordered and the price will start from 300,000 euro or about $380,000 at the current exchange rates.
UPDATE 11/15/2012: Lamborghini has finally announced the U.S. prices for its new Aventador Roadster, and we have to admit it’s a little bit more than we were expecting: $445,300, including the $3,700 gas-guzzler tax.

When Lamborghini unveiled the new Aventador Roadster, it described the car’s two-piece roof as very easy to install. In fact, the official announcement says that each of the two 13-pound carbon-fiber pieces can be attached and removed in just a "matter of seconds."
The question that begs to be answered is “in a matter of seconds for whom: a Lamborghini engineer or a regular customer?” We think the above video will give you an idea of what to really expect.
During the car’s official presentation, Lamborghini wanted to show its customers how to install this wonder-roof. The problem is that it took a Lamborghini rep about two minutes to install it! Granted, he was talking while working, but he has been trained to install the roof. Now, imagine someone with absolutely no training installing this roof and you can see how it could take about two minutes. That’s a real problem if you happen to live in a place where torrential and sudden rainfall is the norm, like London or South Florida.
Nevertheless, we need to admire the absolute beauty in this masterpiece of a vehicle. We’re also pretty sure that it’ll take a few dozen practice installations before a new owner can install the roof "in a matter of seconds." One thing is for sure, the Aventador’s roof is easier to install than the soft top on the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 Roadster. That process seems to require two people, a sledgehammer, hope, prayers, and a few choice four-letter words to accomplish.
Check out top-installation process on the Murcielago in the video after the jump.
Apparently, there’s a sequel coming and looking at the teaser photo that the German tuner dropped, it appears like it’s going to be a noteworthy successor to the LP900 Molto Veloce. DMC is doing a wonderful job keeping the full details close to its chest, but there’s something about this teaser that seems to suggest that it’s going to be a completely different program with a different body kit.
Look at the front bumper and you can’t help but wonder if there are design cues from the one-off Aventador J sprinkled in there. The light setup also seems to suggest that there’s something different about it.
The good news is that we won’t have to wait too long to find out what DMC Tuning has in store for the Lamborghini supercar. The official release of the program has been scheduled for December 12, 2012, so keep your eyes and ears open for the date.
Something about this teaser makes us think that we’re going to be blown away with the DMC’s sequel program for the mighty Aventador.
Back in May, Wheelsandmore was unveiling a very cool 777 HP Rabbioso package based on the Lamborghini Aventador. Now the tuner turns its attention on the Italian supercar once again.
The car is covered in a very cool Bianco paint combined with black racing stripes and numerous elements in carbon look. The car rides on a new set of 6 Sporz ultralight forged wheels with an individualized design and matte-black powder-coated centers. The outside of the rims is painted in the same Bianco shade as the rest of the body. The front wheels measure in at 9.5-by-20 inches and the rear wheels come in at 12.5-by-21 inches.
Under the hood Wheelsandmore added in a software upgrade that takes its output up to 551 kW (777 horsepower) and 760 Nm (560 pound-feet) of torque. That’s a 77-horsepower and 51-pound-feet increase over the base Aventador.
While this package offers no exterior upgrades, the tuner is offering up numerous optional carbon-fiber elements, including: rear diffuser, rear wing, 5-piece engine compartment covers, trunk compartment cover, front spoiler, mirror caps and stands and a 10-piece air intake.
The entire kit, excluding the exterior modifications, comes in at €27,221 ($34,793 at the current exchange rates).
Miami residents definitely have something to smile about: the new Lamborghini Aventador Roadster will be making its US debut on November 12th at the local Lamborghini Miami dealer. Lamborghini will then start a presentation tour of the car, with the next stop being Los Angeles.
European customers will benefit from multiple showcases in the coming weeks at the company’s factory, but those are just for small groups - as usual.
The first details offered by Lamborghini on the upcoming Aventador Roadster: "The new Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster is crafted from an ultra-rigid carbon fiber monocoque for strength with light weight. Its shatteringly powerful 6.5 liter V12 engine drives through all four wheels. Yet it also offers the thrill of open-top motoring, with the roof down, all the sensations of a high performance sports car are amplified - including the soulful sound of that 691 HP engine. Our most powerful Roadster ever."
Stay tuned as we will be on hand for the release on November 12, 2012!
As you may recall, we already posted some pretty saucy photos of the Lamborghini Aventador with one of the sexiest models to grace our pages, Sharon.
Never fret though, because with the help from the girls from FTVGirls.com, the Lamborghini Aventador is back - and it’s bringing another drop dead, gorgeous bombshell with it.
Boys, say hello to Mia.
The green-eyed babe is yet even more reason to enjoy a photo spread like this. And remember, we gotta give a big supercar load of credit to the folks of FTVGirls.com for the hook-up. Sharing these photos of Mia with the Lamborghini Aventador and its 700-horsepower’s worth of awesome is a truly a welcome treat, one that a lot of you will probably be thankful for too.
So don’t beat around the bush any longer. Check out the gallery of Mia and the mighty Lamborghini Aventador below! Remember, keep your wits together because these photos are steaming hot.
There’s no mistaking that Lamborghini hit a home run with its latest supercar, the Aventador, but for all of the unmistakable epic-ness of this Italian beast, there’s still some way that you can make it better.
FTVGirls.com has the answer: Have a hot woman pose with the Aventador. One of their models, the voluptuous Sharon, takes center stage with the Italian supercar. And she did a remarkable job by taking the Aventador and matching its appeal in the photos, if we do say so ourselves.
Really, check out some of them and tell us you noticed the Aventador before you noticed Sharon’s...assets. It’s hard to admit, we know, but it’s something that we definitely understand.
After all, you put a face and body like that and it’s hard to take your eyes off of it.

With a price tag of over half a million dollars, which to a Dubai Sheikh is bread and butter, this example of Mansory’s take on the Lamborghini Aventador was spotted in the valet parking lot at one of the famous malls in Dubai (for those who know Dubai, it’s the Fashion Avenue at the Dubai Mall).
Unveiled at the 2012 Geneva Auto Show, this crazy Lambo is powered by a tuned (why?) version of the already-powerful 6.5 V12 that now produces 754bhp and 750Nm of torque, a subtle yet gut-wrenching increase from the standard 690bhp. How gut-wrenching, you ask? It rockets from 0-60mph in 2.8 seconds and, with the pedal hard on the floor, it’ll hit 220 mph without breaking a sweat.
Murdering performance aside, this Aventador sports bigger air vents, a custom-made ultralight forged rims with carbon fiber inlays, and a paint-job that is similar to the one that was sprayed on the Aventador J, the only car that trumps this when it comes to performance.
With numbers like these, we expect to write an article on "Mansory Lamborghini Aventador gets speeding ticket" or "Mansory Lamborghini Aventador crashes," if the owner decides to unleash that raging bull. Rest assured, it’s a car that will turn everybody’s head. If not the crazy-yet-cool design, then the screaming, fire-breathing V12 engine.
