Motor-Vision.co.uk has spent the last week making friends with the new Oakley Design modified Lamborghini Aventador.
We were all very excited when we first heard of the Aventador’s pending release at the Geneva Motor Show and even more excited when we knew that Oakley Design would be getting their hands on them.
For those of you who don’t know, UK based tuning company Oakley Design take supercars that already border upon perfection and take them over that border.
The Lamborghini Aventador, as standard, will travel up to 217mph and gets from a standing start up to 62mph in an incredible 2.9 seconds. Well, the Oakley Design modified car is faster, lighter, with more power and even meaner looks. It is, simply put, better.
Motor Vision were invited along to both the Dyno speed test at the renowned Viezu facility in Bromsgrove as well a track testing session at a secret location in France. As you can imagine we’re not the sort of people to turn down such opportunities.
A full report and video will follow shortly but in the interim period I can tell you that on the Dyno run, as well as heating up the exhaust system so it was red hot and with blue flames shooting out the back of the titanium exhaust system, the speedometer did hit a figure of 232mph.
This was the first big test of the car and, judging by the Ferrari 458 Italia previously modified by the UK car tuner, we’re expecting that the Aventador might not be at it’s limit as yet. It may well go faster. Especially with Jon Oakley of Oakley Design steering the project along.
Rather than sticking to the name Lamborghini have used, the LP700-4, Oakley Design have nicknamed their car the LP 760-2 due to boosting the BHP up to 760 and altering the drivetrain from 4 wheel drive to 2 wheel drive.
The car proudly wears it’s LP 760-2 name like a badge of honour, which like many of the additional carbon parts, make the car very distinct from standard.
