Following international acclaim for their finely honed Ferrari 458, Porsche GT2, GT3 and Panamera conversions, we are exited to see Oakley Design announce their tuning programme for the Lamborghini LP700-4 Aventador.

Below follows a few juicy details about the car, naturally, which is a stunning 10/10 package. However, importantly to us here at Autemo, we are extremely proud that it's our very own Jackdarton who was instrumental in the design. Cheers to Jackdarton and the Aventador!

Production of the Oakley Design LP760-2 will be limited to just five cars, each bearing a unique numbered plaque. Three of these are already sold. Outside of this Limited Edition model, individual parts will be available for clients who do not require the complete package.

Chassis
A new ultra-light, forged alloy wheel is being developed in conjunction with HRE. Weighing around 4.0kg less per corner than the factory alloys, this is the distinctive Oakley Design P40 design used on our Ferrari and Porsche based models.

The factory 255/35ZR19 front and 355/30ZR20 Pirelli PZero tyres are retained, but the wheel increases from 9.0J to 9.5 inch in front, and from 12.0J to 13.0J at the rear. This gives the car a wider footprint, and endows the rear wheels with more mechanical grip in ‚..corsa‚.. mode.

Although the majority of owners will purchase just the carbon-fibre parts, sports exhaust and re-mapped ECU, a few hard-core clients are interested in a rear-drive only option for further weight saving and increased performance.

After Oakley Design's success tuning the Ferrari 458 Italia to 640bhp, and also having driven the Underground Racing twin-turbo F458 with 880bhp, we feel that the Aventador by Oakley Design should also be able to handle this level of power with just rear-wheel-drive.

Performance
Lamborghini's claimed outputs of 690bhp and 690Nm (508 lb/ft) of torque, will be increased by around 10% with an ECU remap optimising a larger airbox, intake feed pipe diameter and a titanium exhaust system that will also save over 30kg. The target is 760bhp with 745Nm (550 lb/ft) of torque. The angular cover surrounding the four exhaust outlet pipes will feature the Oakley Design logo and signature burnt blue tip look.

Aerodynamics
Despite having a carbon-fibre bodyshell, the Aventador has many gloss black plastic parts.

The two plastic front bumper and two rear bumper trims will be extended to aid cooling, as will the side air intakes located behind the doors. The new parts will be made from carbon-fibre, as will the new side sills with their slightly larger vents. The sills can either be colour-coded to the bodywork, with the air vents picked out in carbon, or left completely in exposed carbon finish for a more aggressive look.

Developed in the MIRA wind tunnel, the rear Gurney flap, matched to a deeper rear diffuser with longer, deeper boundary layer fences, helps high-speed stability and grip on both two and four-wheel-drive versions.

The carbon-fibre door mirrors and engine bay covers are direct replacement parts. Along with the black carbon roof, they give this very special Aventador its distinctive Oakley Design look.
