Sometimes, it doesn’t take much to make a supercar like the Lamborghini Aventador even more desirable. In some instances, though, even subtle modifications have a way of bringing out the Aventador’s uniqueness even more, which is exactly what Hamann did with its Geneva presentation of the Italian supercar. Dubbed the Lamborghini Aventador Limited, Hamann’s work on the raging bull consists of adding fancy two-tone color to go with a bevy of aerodynamic components and a nice performance bump. That’s the usual trifecta Hamann aims for when it comes to building programs perfectly suited for exotics in the class of the Aventador.
It’s no different this time, and the German tuner once again pulled it off, complete with extra doses of modification on the wheels and the interior.
All in all, just another day in the office for Hamann, which usually translates to tuning awesomeness for all of us.

Lamborghini Aventador By Hamann in Detail
Like with most of Hamann’s work, the German tuner went to great lengths to fit the Aventador with an impressive line of new carbon-fiber components. The front end gets a nice treatment with new custom-made carbon air vent inserts, a two-piece front spoiler that provides the kind of downforce normally attributed to race cars while also increasing grip on the front wheels.
On the sides, new side skirts help in optimizing aerodynamics, while the rear end of the Aventador also received some love in the form of a new carbon-fiber rear apron and diffuser, an adjustable spoiler, and a sport muffler that Hamann specifically created for this program.
Oh, and lest we forget, that Stealth Grey matte paint and the Poison Green trim that looks absolutely deadly.
The interior, on the other hand, doesn’t get a whole lot of changes, other than the getting draped in green leather with matching black contrasts and green stitching.
Hiding underneath all that work on the body is a revised 6.5-liter, V-12 engine that now develops 760 horsepower and 542 pound-feet of torque, a nice boost from the standard 700 horsepower and 508 pound-feet of torque from the Lamborghini supercar.
No performance numbers were given but this sort of power should get it to 60 mph in just 2.5 seconds and the top speed should be around 230 mph.
Hamann has taken the bull by the horns and puts the ultimate finish on one of the most striking and powerful sports cars of all time. Even more uncompromising, even more spectacular: the independent body concept of the factory in Swabian Laupheim has turned the martial Lamborghini Aventador into a personalized masterpiece – with unique design details and an impressive increase in power of almost ten per cent.
The leitmotif of the Hamann "Limited" is uniqueness in every way. The front boasts custom-made carbon air vent inserts. The optical counterpart of the lightweight nostrils is the two-piece front spoiler made of the same high strength racing material, which provides for racing grade down force and gives the front wheels increased grip. To optimize the aerodynamics, the new eye-catching side skirts help calm the airflow on the underside.
The greatest optimisation requirement for motorsport specialist Hamann was at the rear of the Aventador. The redesigned features were thus particularly extensive here. Hamann replaced the rear apron and rear diffuser with their own designs and constructions made of ultra-lightweight carbon fibre. The adjustable rear spoiler is made of the same material, as well. Hamann also developed the sport final muffler specifically for the "Limited." There is also a special race version available with backfire.
The voluminous air intake slots on the engine compartment lid supply the huge twelve-cylinder unit with plenty of cool air. Here, Hamann has integrated very high quality clear-coated carbon fibre, which allows a clear view of the Lamborghini power package.
Highlights of the customised Aventador are the alloy wheels, which go perfectly with its new look. The multi-part Hamann "Professional" is produced by a forging process, which guarantees maximum driving dynamics through lightness and the highest level of stiffness. The high-performance wheels in sizes 9x20 and 13x21 inch bear ultra-high-performance tyres in sizes 255/30 ZR 20 in front and 355/25 ZR 21 in the back.
The specialists of Hamann push the performance of the potent Italian to new heights. 700 hp (515 kW) and 690 Nm were the numbers to beat – and that’s what motor racing professional Hamann clearly managed to do. The completely redesigned software of the control unit of the twelve-cylinder in the "Limited" now reaches 760 hp (559 kW). The maximum torque of the 6.5-liter V12 increases with the identity field optimisation to a raging 735 Nm*.
Hamann presents the first “Limited Lambo” in the special matt grey paint “Stealth Grey” – and “poison” green contrasted body details. And Hamann fulfils every customer desire imaginable. The highest manufacturing quality and selected materials have been the benchmark at Hamann for over 28 years.
A special hue also makes the interior unmistakable: the three-spoke multifunctional steering wheel is trimmed in green leather on the top and bottom. Intricately stitched applications on the instrument panel, the side panels and the centre console correspond excellently with other features, such the instrument panel cover and the seat tracks of the exclusive, high-speed sports seats.
