When it comes down to producing extremely powerful and lightning fast exotic automobiles, Italian auto manufacturer Automobili Lamborghini are up there with the very best. This especially applies to Lamborghini’s current flagship models, the Aventador S and Aventador S Roadster and even the limited production, limited edition Aventador SVJ and Aventador SVJ Roadster. In factory standard guise the fighter jet like Lamborghini Aventador S and Aventador S Roadster delivers an astonishing 740 hp (544 kW) of power and 690 Nm of torque and both are capable of reaching a maximum speed of 350 km/h (217 mph).
On the other hand, the limited edition Aventador SVJ and Aventador SVJ Roadster is even more powerful and both deliver an unbelievable 770 hp (566 kW) of power and 720 Nm of torque and both are capable of reaching a maximum speed of over 350 km/h (217 mph). So why am I telling you all of this you are probably asking, well if you are like me then you will agree that the Lamborghini Aventador S, Aventador S Roadster, Aventador SVJ and Aventador SVJ Roadster have more than enough power and are fast enough for anybody, am I right? Well it seems that some people out there will disagree with us because recently I was made aware of an even more powerful Lamborghini Aventador, in fact the Lamborghini Aventador in question is so powerful it literally is a fighter jet for the road.
This is it, what you are no doubt drooling over ladies and gentlemen is the Lamborghini Carbanado Evo and it is the work of German based aftermarket tuning company Mansory. If you know a thing or two about the world of aftermarket tuning, then you will know that Mansory are pretty good at customizing and upgrading some the worlds best exotics, creating bespoke and incredibly fast cars in the process. As you can no doubt see, the insane Carbonado Evo is based on the original Lamborghini Aventador Roadster and it is currently a one of a kind creation and according to Mansory, the German based tuning firm will not be building anymore examples of the Carbonado Evo, which is an interesting move because I am pretty sure demand will be high for the tuned Aventador Roadster.
Starting on the outside, the Lamborghini Carbonado Evo looks extremely similar to it’s hardtop Coupe sibling the Lamborghini Carbonado, apart from it’s detachable hard top roof of course. As a result, the Lamborghini Carbonado Evo is smothered in lightweight carbon fiber and it features “completely redesigned carbon fiber body work” giving it “a world exclusive stealth look”. That is not all because Mansory have also outfitted the Carbonado Evo with new, more aggressive looking front and rear bumpers, enhanced wheel housings, larger front and rear air intakes, a carbon fiber bonnet/engine cover, a set of new headlights, carbon fiber side skirts, carbon fiber side view mirrors, a large carbon fiber rear diffuser and a massive carbon fiber fixed rear wing. To finish off the “stealth look” Mansoryhas given the Carbonado Evo a “stealth carbon fiber” exterior finish and they have also darkened the taillights and added a set of 20-inch (front) and 21-inch (rear) lightweight forged alloy wheels which are wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero tires.
Unfortunately at the time of writing this article, Mansory had not released any images of the Carbonado Evo’s interior and did not detail the Carbonado Evo’s interior either. As a result, I have no idea what upgrades and custom touches have been added to the vehicle’s interior and I also have no idea what materials now feature inside the cabin. However we are taking about Mansoryhere, so I am pretty sure that the interior of the Carbonado Evois smothered in carbon fiber or forged carbon fiber trim with lots of Alcantara and fine leather too.
The devilish Lamborghini Carbonado Evo is powered by a familiar 6.5 litre, naturally aspirated V12 engine. However, Mansory have completely rebuilt and reworked the giant 6.5 litre, naturally aspirated V12 engine, achieving astounding performance figures in the process. Although Mansory has not detailed the work carried out on the massive V12 powerplant, they have said that the Carbonado Evo now has an overall power output of 1,250 hp (932 kW) and an electronically limited torque output of 900 Nm. If we compare these performance figures to those of a standard Lamborghini Aventador Roadster (not Aventador S Roadster), the Carbonado Evo has an overall power increase of 550 hp (410 Kw) and an overall torque increase of 210 Nm.
Although Mansory have not mentioned anything regarding the Carbonado Evo’s transmission, it is likely that the Carbonado Evo uses the same single-clutch seven speed semi-automatic transmission as a regular Aventador. I can however confirm that all 1,250 hp is sent directly to all four wheels via Lamborghini’s permanent all wheel drive system, improving traction in the process. As a result, the insane Lamborghini Carbanado Evo can sprint from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in just 2.6 seconds and it will keep on accelerating until it reaches a hypercar like top speed of 380 km/h (236 mph).
As mentioned earlier in this article, Mansory has only built one example of the insane Carbanado Evo and they have no plans to produce anymore. As a result, true to Mansory style, pricing details for the Carbonado Evo will only be made available to those who already own a Lamborghini Aventador Roadster and can prove it. Overall I absolutely love the Carbanado Evo, at first I thought Mansory ruined a perfectly good AventadorRoadster by making it too powerful but taking into account all the work that has been done to this jet like machine, I am pretty sure it will provide the driving experience of a lifetime that only much more expensive hypercars and megacars can provide.
