We Insist That You Don’t Check Out This Larte Design Off-Road Tuning Kit for the Aurus Senat

Larte Design plays in the same obnoxious tuning league as Mansory. You can expect the tuner to shell out audacious designs and the worst part is that people will actually buy those and flaunt them on the street. Speaking of audacious, try not to cringe at the sight of Larte’s latest work on Russia’s Aurus Senat.
Why can’t every tuner be like Novitec?
Yeah, yeah, beauty is in the eye of the beholder but there are tuners that can do a subtle yet eye-catching work on the supercars they tweak. One such tuner is Novitec. At the opposite end, however, we get design studios like Mansory’s or Larte’s.
Besides their regular 'victims' - Mercedes-Benz SUVs, BMWs, Infinitis, and even Maseratis, Larte is also taking a stab at the Aurus Senate in a, let's say, unexpected manner.
According to Carscoops, the renders you see are the real deal - as in, they tease an upcoming model with eight exhaust pipes.
Wait, what? Yup, you read that right. The tuned Senat has a quad exhaust setup in the rear and, most likely, two protruding pipes on each side. Or the two side exhausts are present only on the left-hand side, which makes it six exhaust pipes instead of eight. Either way, overkill.
Elsewhere, the kit is manufactured out of carbon fiber and will include the whole nine yards:
- front and rear bumpers
- beefed up rear arches à la Rocket Bunny
- the said exhaust setup
- racy rear diffuser
- rear wing
- bulky hood
- roof scoops
Hiding under those body elements will be a custom off-road-centric suspension setup. On top of that, Larte says it will also tweak the engine for more oomph, although we don’t get to know the final output.
The regular Senat uses a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V-8 (co-developed with Porsche and Bosch) that’s good for 590 horsepower and 649 pound-feet of torque assisted by an electric motor. Any action to imbue the setup would maybe take power in the region of 700 horsepower, with torque expected to take a considerable hike, too.
There’s no word on pricing but have no doubt that it’s going to be at least of the same levels of madness like the body kit itself.
