Lamborghini Aventador LP900 Molto Veloce revealed by DMC {{favouriteCount}} Quantity of Likes

There aren’t many people who get in their Lamborghini Aventador and think “Hmmm, I like it but it’s not quite quick enough”.  After all, the 700 bhp supercar manages to get to 60 mph in less than 3 seconds and tops out at over 200 mph. But some owners want the absolute extremes of performance and looks, which is where aftermarket tuners come into the equation.

Revealed for the first time back in March, the Lamborghini Aventador LP900 Molto Veloce by DMC claims to combine ‘dazzling looks’ with a healthy power boost to around 900 bhp.

Visually the LP900 gets a new carbon fibre splitter and vents at the front, while there are aerodynamic carbon fibre side skirts at the sides. There is also improved downforce thanks to a new carbon diffuser at the rear, combined with an enormous carbon wing on aluminium struts. This is combined with the matte black roof panel and a set of (we think horrible) orange alloy wheels.

The big changes are in the engine bay though, as the engineers at DMC have decided to replace the overhead throttle valves with 12 custom single-intake throttle plates (one for each cylinder). The pressure modulators, injection nozzles, fuel lines and fuel pumps are some of the components that have been replaced by the tuner, which apparently means the engine will put out 900 bhp. This hasn’t been dyno verified though, so we will wait to see if the claims are true. It would be an incredibly impressive feat to make a 6.5 litre naturally aspirated V12 engine manage 900 bhp – that’s a specific output of 138.5 bhp/litre which is rare in production cars. There are also changes to the exhaust system, DMC claims that while the stock exhaust system of the Aventador tips the scales at 34 kg, the new one weighs only 3.4 kg. Again we’d take this with a pinch of salt as a straight through pipe system from the manifold back for a Ferrari Enzo, made from Titanium by Akrapovic weighs 8 kg, and this is widely regarded as the lightest system available.

The price tag for all these upgrades together is around €125,000. The styling parts are already on sale, while the engine work will go on sale soon. There is also an option for a custom interior coming soon, which will cost another €40,000.
