Oakley Design Lamborghini Aventador LP760-4 Dragon Edition is a Real Fire Breather

If you happened to find your stocking stuffed with rolls and rolls of C-notes yesterday morning (a regular occurrence, of course), you’re probably still pondering what to do with those new riches. You could invest it in stocks, commodities and/or real estate, but odds are you’ll end up with less money, not more (especially if this whole “fiscal cliff” clusterbleep isn’t resolved). You could put the money away for a rainy day, but if you put it in a bank it’ll earn an interest rate that’s lower than Iran’s blood-alcohol limit, and if you keep it at home you’ll constantly be fretting about being robbed. Besides, where, pray tell, is the fun in letting money just sit there?

There’s loads of fun to be had, however, in spending that money on a new supercar. And few supercars that you can purchase new are more super than the Lamborghini Aventador. However, if you consider the 691hp served up by the latest Lamborghini flagship in stock trim is insufficient (and it’s okay if you feel that’s the case; we’re all friends here), there are ways to add more. One option is to get in touch with the people at Oakley Design.

Oakley Design has pulled the wraps off the second of ten Aventador LP760-4 Dragon Editions it plans on assembling and, Great Ferruccio’s Ghost, is it a sharp looking bit of kit. The front bumper, side vents, mirror caps and other trim items are replaced with unpainted carbon fiber pieces. The A-pillars and the roof have been shorn of paint, leaving their carbon fiber weaves visible, too. There’s also a large, non-retractable carbon fiber rear wing placed atop the hind end, and the stock exhaust tips are replaced by four big, circular pipes. Spindly black wheels from HRE replace the stock pieces, and brake calipers with “Dragon Edition” labeling now clamp down on those monumental rotors.

Interior changes are considerably more modest. The two bucket seats are wrapped in black leather with white leather inserts, and there are dollops of matching white leather on the center console and door panels. The dashboard’s center stack is crowned by a numbered Dragon Edition plaque, while the carbon fiber door sill moldings also proclaim this to be Aventador LP760-4 Dragon Edition #2 of 10.

Of course, if all the cosmetic alterations to the interior and exterior don’t confirm that this is an extra-special Lambo, the mechanical alterations certainly should. A remapped ECU and a titanium exhaust system conspire to raise the 6.5L V12’s output from 691hp and 510 lb.-ft to 750hp (which is 760 metric horsepower, thus the “760-4” designation) and 550 lb.-ft. That muscle is still pressed into the pavement via a 7-speed single-clutch paddle shift transmission and an all-wheel-drive system.

Oakley Design isn’t saying how much quicker this grayscale screamer is than its factory standard counterpart, nor how much dough all the Dragon Edition hardware adds to the window sticker of a new Aventador. But if we had to guess, the answers to those riddles are likely “slightly faster” and “considerably more expensive,” respectively.
