Not all of the companies that go to the Frankfurt Auto Show are of the established variety. There are some that are trying to break ground with hopes of catching some attention from the gathered crowd.
German engineering house Zesad is one of them, and while the company has become famous for being the world-wide manufacturer of GT3 products with street-legal license for Lamborghini and Ferrari , it still doesn’t hold the cache as the ;likes of Mansory and Hamann .
Zesad hopes to change all that with its first program for the Lamborghini Aventador . It’s called the Vento GT3 and as you’d expect from a company that deals mostly in racecars, Zesad really took to extremes to give the Italian supercar the kind of modifications that will really set it apart.
Aerodynamic upgrades was the first order of business, and Zesad took the task of giving the Aventador a new aero-hood that accelerates the wind supply going to the car’s engine. A new wing spoiler was also installed on the exotic, as were new diffusers, all with the intention of improving the overall makeup of the Aventador.
To back up its new and admittedly insane body, the Aventador was also treated to a performance modification that included a new engine-management system and a new high-performance exhaust system. With these upgrades in tow, the Lamborghini supercar saw its output increase to an impressive 743 horsepower and around 550 pound-feet of torque — up from the base 690 horsepower and 509 pound-feet — good enough to improve the car’s 0-to-60 mph time to just 2.8 seconds with a top speed of 221 mph.

The Lamborghini Aventador is made for people with deep pockets. As the unquestioned jewel of Lambo’s production line, the bad-to-the-bone Italian supercar has no problems being the apple-of-the-eye of the elite, something that’s evident considering the number of these exotics running around the Middle East these days.
The Aventador has a killer combination: sexy styling and a 6.5-liter, V-12 engine that produces 690 horsepower and 509 pound-feet of torque are more than enough reasons for us to believe that this car is tailor-made for sheer spectacles. Certainly, it helps that it can also hit 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 217 mph.
