The mighty Lamborghini Aventador comes with no shortage of power, but that doesn’t mean that it’s still not worthy to be treated to a little more juice.
That’s where noted Lamborghini tuner, Underground Racing, comes into the picture. The Charlotte-based tuning firm has made a living modding one Lamborghini super car after another so when they were given a chance to send the Aventador to the dyno, they wasted little time giving it enough added juice to compete with the Bugatti Veyron.
For their first tuning offering for the Aventador, Underground Racing rebuilt the Italian super car’s 6.5-liter V12 engine and strengthened the gearbox unit, and doing so while keeping the supercar’s all-wheel drive system. All told, they were able to almost double the Aventador’s output to 1,200 horsepower, a staggering improvement from it’s already insane 700-horsepower standard output.
No official times have been announced, but according to Underground Racing, their newly-modded, 1,200-horsepower Aventador is capable of hitting 0-60 mph in just 2.2 seconds, three-tenths of a second faster than what the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport can accomplish.
But the truly important piece of news here that some folks might overlook is that this is one of the first modded Aventadors to pass through Underground Racing’s tuning wizardry. Knowing these guys, we can expect something even more powerful down the road.
