Vorsteiner, in case you haven’t noticed, is a real up-and-comer in the tuning business. The company offers an extensive range of custom wheels and some sublimely-subtle body kits for high end cars and SUVs. It even offers some additional visual spice for the already stunning Lamborghini Aventador.
So why are we reporting on yet another Vorsteiner-enhanced version of Lamborghini’s current scissor-door, V12-powered primal screamer? Haven’t we already been there, done that, and bought the t-shirt? Well, yeah, for the “standard” Vorsteiner Aventador-V. What you see here is the Aventador-V LP-740.
The LP-740 body kit goes quite a bit further than does the one on the lesser Vorsteiner Aventador. The front fascia features additional carbon fiber frames for the two large radiator intakes, as well as a substantial carbon fiber splitter. The side skirt extensions, rear diffuser, and rear wing (that sits atop the stock automatic spoiler and matches the angular profile of the car’s tail) are also crafted from unpainted (but clear-coated) carbon fiber. The wheels are Vorsteiner’s own, and are finished is a snazzy shade of graphite that kind of matches the center of the three racing stripes that run along the top of the car. If not for the Vorsteiner name and logo on the wheel center caps, one could easily mistake this for the latest special edition Aventador from Lambo itself.
Alas, the specialness ends with the exterior appearance; Vorsteiner makes no indication that it has performed any modifications on the interior appointments or the mechanical bits (The “LP-740” has nothing to do with the 6.5L V12’s output.) But you know what? We’re okay with that. The extra-flash provided by the body add-ons makes the fact that this car still has “only” 691 horsepower considerably less difficult to swallow.
