Hamann "Limited" conquers European roads
Hamann has taken the bull by the horns and put the ultimate finish on one of the most striking and powerful sports cars of all time. After its debut at Geneva Motor Show and Top Marques Monaco, the "Hamann Lambo" now grabs the attention on European roads. The refinement specialist from Laupheim offers the model as finely tuned "total work of art". However, the exclusive components can also be configured as desired, for example, in case the basic model already parks in the customer’s garage.
Either way the "Lambo" becomes even more uncompromising, even more spectacular: the independent body concept of the Swabian factory has turned the martial Lamborghini Aventador into a personalised masterpiece - with unique design details and an impressive increase in power by almost ten per cent.
The leitmotif of the Hamann "Limited" is uniqueness in every way. The front boasts custom-made carbon air vent inserts. The optical counterpart of the lightweight nostrils is the two-piece front spoiler made of the same high-strength racing material, which provides for racing-grade down force and gives the front wheels increased grip. To optimise the aerodynamics, the new eye-catching side skirts help calm the airflow on the underside.
The greatest optimisation requirement for motorsport specialist Hamann was at the rear of the Aventador. The redesigned features were thus particularly extensive here. Hamann replaced the rear apron and rear diffuser with their own designs and constructions made of ultra-lightweight carbon fibre. The adjustable rear spoiler is made of the same material. Hamann also developed the sport final muffler specifically for the "Limited." There is also a special race version available with backfire.
The voluminous air intake slots on the engine compartment lid supply the huge twelve-cylinder unit with plenty of cool air. Here, Hamann has integrated very high-quality clear-coated carbon fibre, which allows a clear view of the Lamborghini power package.
Highlights of the customised Aventador are the alloy wheels, which go perfectly with its new look. The multi-part Hamann "Professional" is produced by a forging process, which guarantees maximum driving dynamics through lightness and the highest level of stiffness. The high-performance wheels in sizes 9x20 and 13x21 inch bear ultra-high-performance tyres in sizes 255/30 ZR 20 in front and 355/25 ZR 21 in the back.
The specialists of Hamann push the performance of the potent Italian to new heights. 700 hp (515 kW) and 690 Nm were the numbers to beat - and that's what motor racing professional Hamann clearly managed to do. The completely redesigned software of the control unit of the twelve-cylinder in the "Limited" now reaches 760 hp (559 kW). The maximum torque of the 6.5-liter V12 increases with the identity field optimisation to a raging 735 Nm*.
Hamann's "Limited Lambo" comes with the special matt grey paint "Stealth Grey" - and "poison" green contrasted body details. However, Hamann fulfils every customer desire imaginable - also in the vehicle’s interior: highest manufacturing quality and selected materials have been the benchmark at Hamann for over 28 years. A special hue also makes the interior unmistakable: the three-spoke multifunctional steering wheel is trimmed in green leather on the top and bottom. Intricately stitched applications on the instrument panel, the side panels and the centre console correspond excellently with other features, such as the instrument panel cover and the seat tracks of the exclusive, high-speed sports seats.
