German aftermarket tuning firm Mansory are known around the world for their outrageous takes on some of the world’s fastest and most expensive exotic automobiles. If you keep up to date on all things motoring related, you will know that over the last few weeks Mansory have unveiled quite a few new projects online. As we have come to expect from Mansory recently, all of the German tuning firm’s latest projects are little out there but that doesn’t mean they aren’t any good. However just as we thought that Mansory had unveiled all of their latest projects the German tuning firm dropped a rather large bomb shell on the automotive universe by officially unveiling yet another new project, and it is probably the wildest of them all.
This is it, what you are looking at ladies and gentlemen is the 2020 Mansory Cabrera and it is based on the already bonkers Lamborghini Aventador SVJ. Named after a Spanish breed of fighting bull, the Mansory Cabrera is one of several special edition creations to be released by Mansory over the course of the year, to celebrate the German tuning firm’s 30th anniversary. According to Mansory, the Cabrera features aggressive new exterior styling which is “reminiscent of a fighting bull in attack posture”, and it has been outfitted with a few interior updates and a performance upgrade, not that the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ needs such a thing.
Starting with the exterior, the Mansory Cabrera features a completely redesigned exterior which is made up of lightweight carbon fibre. Up front, the Mansory Cabrera features a totally redesigned front fascia which includes a new, more aggressively styled front bumper with aerodynamically optimised air inlets, a carbon fibre front splitter and carbon fibre canards. However the most noticeable change up front has got to be the redesigned LED headlights, which in my opinion makes the Cabrera’s front end look rather outdated. When viewed from the side, you will instantly notice that the Mansory Cabrera features sharper side skirts, broader wheel arches which add an extra 40 mm to the width of the vehicle and an eye catching set of lightweight forged alloy wheels which have been wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero tires.
Staying with the exterior, when viewed from the rear you will instantly notice a large carbon fibre engine cover, a large fixed carbon fibre rear wing, a redesigned rear fascia with a newly developed “double diffuser”, quad tailpipes which are housed between the taillights and an eye-catching Vento Verde exterior paint finish. Inside, the Mansory Cabrera features an interior design and layout which will be very familiar to Aventador SVJ owners. As expected from Mansory, the Cabrera’s interior features carbon fibre seats, Alcantara upholstery with Vento Verde accents throughout the cabin, Vento Verde contrast stitching, arrow shaped decorative seams, a forged carbon fibre centre console, forged carbon fibre door panels with Vento Verde fabric door pulls and a forged carbon fibre, Alcantara wrapped steering wheel.
Powering the Mansory Cabrera is the same 6.5 litre, naturally aspirated V12 engine which can be found in the Lamborghini Aventador S and SVJ models. However as Manaory have upgraded the Cabrera’s power plant, this custom built supercar now delivers a whopping 799 hp (587 kW) and 780 N.m (575 lb ft) of torque which is an increase of 40 hp (30 kW) and 60 N.m (44 lb ft) when compared to a factory standard Lamborghini Aventador SVJ. As a result of the extra power, the Mansory Cabrera can sprint from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in just 2.6 seconds which 0.2 seconds quicker than a factory standard Aventador SVJ. As for top speed, well the Mansory Cabrera will top out at a hypercar rivalling 355 km/h (221 mph) which makes it 5 km/h (3 mph) faster than a factory standard Lamborghini Aventador SVJ.
As many Lamborghini enthusiasts will know, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ is a pretty rare automobile as a mere 963 examples were produced worldwide. However the Mansory Cabrera is even more rare because according to Mansory, only three examples will be produced worldwide. Unfortunately at the time of writing this article, Mansory didn’t mention how many of the three examples are still available and the German tuning firm didn’t mention anything regarding the price of this bespoke Lamborghini. However according to numerous motoring publications, the vehicle featured in this article is priced at an eye watering £420,000 and we think the price could increase depending on the spec selected. Would you pay £420,000 for the Mansory Cabrera? We definitely wouldn’t, instead we would just have a regular Aventador SVJ Roadster.
