Well, my question for today is simple: would you pay over $1.65 million for a Lamborghini Aventador Roadster supercar, when you can actually settle for about five standard Aventadors in different colors, for the same amount? If you have eccentric taste and a pocket that can handle it, Mansory is here for you to provide whatever you wish for. It’s called the Lamborghini Aventador Carbonado Apertos and Mansory will offer just three examples for sale, which could explain the huge price tag. Maybe! Sure, the Aventador Carbonado Apertos is exclusive; the kind of car that only a Swiss tuner with the reputation of Mansory can build. You get an excess of carbon fiber on your Aventador, an interior that’s dressed to the nines, tens, and elevens and a car that has over 1,250 horsepower under its hood. Precise, stylish and with a powerful visual impact. Yup, it’s Swiss alright!

This car will probably be talked about for years to come, since Mansory work on a wide array of upgrades on the Lamborghini exterior. The bodywork was completely rebuilt from carbon fiber, resulting in a cool Stealth Look inspired by the stealth aircraft. Mansory also worked on improving the car’s down-force, while new air intakes improve airflow coming into and out of the new front spoiler. The new full carbon bonnet and the new and improved daytime running lights will surely add to the killer look. As part of improving the supercar’s side profile, handling and aerodynamic characteristics. the Carbonado Apertos received new side skirts while the striking rear spoiler — of course, made from carbon fiber — is not just a cosmetic feature, but acts as a perfect tool to improve the supercar’s downforce even when its traveling at high speeds.

Mansory made sure that, once you get into this car you’d never want to get out. The interior was treated with the highest quality leather – from the seats, to the instrument panel, all the way to the doors, the black leather with matching yellow stitching. And don’t ignore the new sports steering wheel, aluminium pedals and numerous carbon fittings. Technically speaking, the stock Lamborghini Aventador Roadster is powered by a 6.5-liter V-12 (700 bhp / 509 pound-feet of torque). Sure, that might be enough for ordinary people, but Mansory completely rebuilt the engine and replaced the pistons, connecting rods, rod bearings, crankshaft and the entire cylinder head with motorsport components, while also adding two of its turbochargers into the mix. This should be a blast!

Results? Well, this supercar now pumps out 1,250 horsepower and 663 pound-feet of torque; 100 km/h (62 mph) comes in just 2.6 seconds and will hit a top speed of 236 mph. Now, please remember that the Lamborghini Aventador Roadster Carbonado Apertos will cost €1.25 million – which is about $1.65 million based on current exchange rates – and that only three units will be built, which is half as many as the six-strong Aventador Carbonado. I don’t know about you, but I’d probably find a dozen uses for that amount of money, and the some. But, when bored, always go Lamborghini!
