We’ve written about a number of vehicles (and even office chairs) from the tuning shop, Mansory. That’s because they like to use a lot of what they call “the Black Diamond of the streets”, carbon fiber.
Mansory’s latest beast takes Lamborghini’s newest supercar, the LP700-4 Aventador…and turns it into a completely different machine. Although the Aventador is known for the amount of carbon fiber it uses, Mansory turned it up a lot of notches. The entire exterior is carbon fiber, they added carbon fiber inlays to brand 20-inch front and 21-inch rear wheels, and a number of interior trim pieces have been replaced with carbon fiber as well. Each carbon fiber piece is manufactured in a prepreg-autoclave process, giving a perfect finish quality. While Mansory is known for going a little too far in my opinion, they kept it pretty clean with the Aventador Carbonado…except maybe the rear which looks a bit busy.
Aside from the exterior, Mansory upgraded the interior but also did some performance upgrades to squeeze 53 more horsepower out of the car. The output is boosted from 691hp to 744hp by upgrading the engine control unit and adding an improved exhaust system.
Mansory will be building 6 of these special edition Carbonado’s. No word on pricing yet, but given the vehicles close to $400,000 sticker, I can’t imagine this is for the budget conscious.
