Wheelsandmore Lamborghini Aventador Roadster is an Even Bigger Attention Hog
If you’re looking for a new car that will never, ever blend in with the herd, you can’t go wrong with a Lamborghini Aventador Roadster. It’s pretty much the polar opposite of a white Camry, both in terms of conspicuousness and driving pleasure. Introverts (especially non-millionaire introverts) need not apply.
But what if Lambo’s new topless flagship isn’t quite extroverted enough? Worse still, what if isn’t fast and/or loud enough? As it turns out, German tuner Wheelsandmore can help in each of those areas.
There aren’t very many external modifications made to this mid-engine roadster, but they are visible and highly effective. Wheelsandmore wrapped the example pictured in a color called Matte Navy Dark Gray, though the company will apply a vinyl wrap with the color and design of the customer’s choosing. The stock wheels and tires are replaced with a set of Wheelsandmore’s own 6Sporz² forged alloy wheels (20”x9.5” in front, 21”x12.5” in back) wearing Pirelli tires.
Pop the hood and you’ll find a 6.5L V12 that looks basically the same as the stock version. However, it’s controlled by a reprogrammed ECU, and it exhales through a new bespoke exhaust system featuring low-restriction catalytic converters and electronically-controlled bypass valves. The result is 781hp and 572 lb.-ft of torque, increases of 90 and 63, respectively, over stock. No word on what these upgrades do for straightline performance, but we’re guessing they’ll shave a couple tenths off the 0-60 mph time and bump up top speed by a few miles-per-hour.
There’s also no confirmation on what all these upgrade parts will cost. But if you can afford the cost of a new Aventador Roadster (Base MSRP: $445,300), are you really in a position to carp about dropping another couple dozen grand for modifications? Think long and hard about that…
