One of the perks of being a London billionaire is commissioning one-of-a-kind supercars. James Stunt, an art dealer and playboy, decided to give a good amount of his money (although we don’t know how much) to Mansory for an extremely limited edition of 1 Lamborghini Aventador SV. Lest anyone think that art dealing is all that lucrative, recall that Mr. Stunt is married to the daughter of F-1 chief Bernie Ecclestone, which means the sky is the limit for most things, so long as he remains a good boy. If you don’t believe us, consider that this is the 20th Mansory car created for Mr. Stunt.
Aventador SV Coupe
The Aventador SV Coupe was already a very limited edition car, with the company making just 600 of the cars in total. The cars sold out quickly. One of them was sold to Mr. Stunt, who then commissioned what he hoped is a Stunt of a lifetime.
The Mansory J.S.1 Edition, based on the Lamborghini Aventador SV, has been radically altered in order to make it a London billionaire’s version of a very modern Batmobile, circa Christopher Nolan/Christian Bale era Dark Knight.
Take a look at the long list of modifications that Mansory has built into this Lambo:
The Lamborghini Aventador SV is a 6.5-liter naturally-aspirated V2, but Mansory gave it a new power-box, plus new exhaust system. No area of the exhaust was spared, and a high-performance air filter was added to the mix. These upgrades resulted in an increase in the limited edition’s 740bhp to an extremely powerful and one off 819bhp. Plus there’s even more torque, at 553lb ft. The car is about 110 pounds lighter than the original version due to a carbon fiber shell.
Plastic all around
As we noted above, the front, sides and top of the body have been treated with carbon fiber. The special carbon front bumper has larger air intakes to impact the radiator, and there is a enw carbon front spoiler and front wings. Talk about some major downforce in high-speed conditions.
The side skirts have been made carbon in order to create smoother airflow between front and real axles. This also lets more air in around the engine and the larger brakes. The carbon fiber continues in the back, where there is a carbon diffuser and also a new larger spoiler.
The roof boasts a carbon scoop, which contributes greatly to dropping the Aventador’s weight.
The lighter frame goes a long way to making the car accelerate from 0 to 6.2 in a lighting fast 6.2 seconds. It goes from 0 to 124 in just 8.4 seconds, and 0 to 186 in 124 seconds. The car also picks up more speed at the top end, reaching speeds of 221mph versus 217 mph.
Do you like the look of this Lamborghini Aventador? Are you singing Mansory’s praises or cursing this as overkill? We suspect that if you like Mansory’s patterned carbon fiber, you will really go for the look of this beast. If you don’t, then you’re likely to see this as colossal overkill. What do you think?
