Oakley Design Lamborghini Aventador LP760-2 Jumps to the Front of the Aftermarket Tuning Line
Oakley Design is like the Joe Torre of the tuning world. They take all-stars and turn them into world champs. The last effort from the firm was their rendition of the Ferrari 458 Italia at the 2010 SEMA Show. And before that they overhauled the likes of most of the high-end variants of the Porsche 997 and Panamera lineups along with the Cayenne Turbo thrown in for good measure. The company’s stilo is to recognize the merits of the underlying platform and simply add more aesthetic flavor and a dollop of performance juice with a little extra kick.
This go round, Oakley Design has turned their fine eye towards the Lamborghini Aventador LP700, a god amongst men. Their aerodynamic mods take the form of slightly wider side sills, bigger side vents, a deeper rear diffuser as well as extended front and rear bumper trim. The four exhaust outlet pipes feature the Oakley Design logo and offer their signature burnt blue tip look. Carbon fiber adorns the side mirrors, roofline and engine bay for a bit of flair. Signature Oakley Design wheels (in a partnership with HRE Wheels) are mounted on all four corners, adding a 1/2 inch width up front and a full inch in rear, but still shod in the factory Pirelli PZero rubber.
But it’s really in the performance department where things get interesting. The suffix on the Aventador gets revised from LP700-4 to LP760-2. The implication is immediately recognizable to those familiar with Lamborghini’s coding system. Yes, the folks at Oakley Design plan to boost engine output to 760hp from 690bhp and forgo 4-wheel drive in favor of driving all of that power to the rear wheels. A larger airbox, fatter intake piping, lighter titanium exhaust system and remapped ECU are incorporated to meet this goal.
Similar to their previous engagements, the Oakley Design Lamborghini Aventador LP760-2 will be a limited edition offering, in this case just 5 examples will be produced. But to satisfy those not lucky enough to get in on the first round, the company will provide individual parts outside of the tuning program.
