* Base 2012 Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4
Capristoâ€™s Lamborghini Aventador runs on a 6.5 liter V12 engine with a total output of 700 horsepower. The transmission is a 7-speed ISR semi-automatic gearbox.
You are able to get a maximum speed of 219 mph, an acceleration from 0 to 60 mph at 2.8 seconds, 1/10 of a second faster than the stock version. This performance boost has been achieved just by upgrading the exhaust system of the Aventador.
This Aventador managed to outrun most supercars on the racing track due to its downforce, aerodynamics and road grip. Its all-wheel drive ensures that the car stays on the road even while going through tight turns at high speeds.
Amongst the new visual upgrades, Capristo included a new rear wing and carbon fiber mirror casings. The original diffuser, rear and side air vents have also been taken down and replaced.
Last but not least, Capristo uses side skirts, and included a front lip and grille. The add-ons are meant to improve downforce, aerodynamics, visuals and reduced weight.
The upgrade kit does not include any interior upgrades. Capristoâ€™s presentation model was featured with the standard production interior.
The 2012 Capristo Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 features subtle changes that do not place it too far ahead the standard version of the car. Capristo spent their time taking the car apart reducing its weight which helps its performance as no engine or transmission upgrades were made.
The most notable changes of this version of the Aventador are related to the exhaust system and the exterior visual upgrades.
