There’s something to be said for an aftermarket company that can just roll out of bed in the morning, decide that it wants to build a concept model based on a Lamborghini Aventador , and then proceed to envision what it would do with it when it decides to make it.
That’s how it goes over at DMC these days. During a recent interview with LamboCars, the supercar tuner was asked what it could whip up should a customer say he wants a heavily modded Aventador without any budget constraints.
And this is what DMC came up with; an indescribable piece of engineering that we don’t even know where to begin. It’s already been christened as the Lamborghini Aventador LP1200-4R and in true Lambo nomenclature, the "1200" on its name is representative of the 1,200 horsepower DMC is capable of getting out of the exotic’s 6.5-liter, V-12 engine. Doing that, though, will constitute adding twin-turbos, as well as increasing the displacement by 1.2 liters to a mammoth 7.7-liter engine.
To be clear, this is still a concept, and there are no hints of it being built and developed in the future. But when the company said that it could build a $2.5 million program for the Aventador and it shows something like this, clearly DMC isn’t joking.
But get this; that 1,200-horsepower output it can get out of the Aventador doesn’t even compare to what it can do when a customer really wants a missile on his hands. According to DMC, if somebody really wants to push all the boundaries of speed and power, 2,000 ponies is attainable.
As far as the aerodynamics of the car are concerned, DMC has also prepared a list of new components it would want on the project, which includes a new body kit, stronger air intakes, more air vents, an adjustable-fin air brake system, an adaptive ride height, gold-plated intakes and a new set of 20- and 21-inch wheels on the front and back.
All told, the Lamborghini Aventador LP1200-4R is being touted as having 1,200 horsepower and 671 pound-feet of torque, while weighing just 3,473 pounds. When it’s fully stretching its legs, the concept is capable of hitting 62 mph in 2.3 second to go with a top speed of somewhere in the neighborhood of 250 mph.

Lamborghini unveiled the Aventador in 2012 at the Geneva Motor Show as a replacement for the Murcielago . The model introduced a new design language, with Y-shaped lights spread out from the middle, a new LED light setup and two sweeping strokes placed on the car’s side.
Under the hood, the Aventador has a 6.5-liter, V-12 engine produces a total of 700 horsepower at 8,250 rpm and 509 pound-feet of torque at 5,500 rpm. The Aventador sprints from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.9 seconds and up to a top speed of 217 mph.
