For some customers owing a factory standard Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 just doesn't cut it, perhaps because they live in a neighborhood where they encounter a similar car on the road or they just want to make a statement by owning something unique without going to the lengths of getting an Aventador J (only one ever made) or a Veneno (only 3 sold) ... in that case there are two options, either go through the Ad Personam program at the factory ... or get into the tuning scene.
The latter is what the owner of this specific Aventador did, after the V12 flagship left the factory in Sant'Agata the car spent some time at Oakley Design who turned this already powerful Bull into their limited edition LP760-4 Dragon Edition. Oakley would build only 10 of these Dragon Edition models with increased power output but still with four wheel drive (Oakley also built an LP760-2 Aventador by the way).
The Oakley Dragon Edition comes with the special dragon design on the door panels and custom stitching on the new upholstery on the inside, still the most impressive changes were on the outside, just about every single black plastic part now shows a pristine clear carbon fiber finish: the air vents in front of the windshield, the intakes on the side (both lower and upper intakes), the vents at the rear and, the top section of the exterior rear view mirrors and naturally that custom rear, lower diffuser surrounding the special Oakley exhaust with the four round tips.
But the Carbon Fiber frenzy didn't stop there, the entire roof of this Aventador and those adjustable air intakes behind the side windows are now covered in clear carbon fiber too, just like that very special Oakley Design, adjustable rear wing installed on these Dragon Edition models, the wheels are glossy black HRE cross spoke units in 20-inch size up front and 21-inch at the rear while the entire engine would show a clear carbon fiber finish, a special plaque showing the serial number xx/10 for this Dragon Edition should be present in the engine bay and on the dashboard.
But I guess the owner of this car just didn't think owning a 1 of 10 Oakley Dragon Edition Aventador LP760-4 was enough to distinguish the car from the rest of the super exotics out there, so this Bull was taken to the next level by adding a very recognizable part from DMC, a very renowned name in high end, exotic car tuning, especially on the Lamborghini range.
At the front we now see the DMC Aventador Spezial Version bumper/spoiler combination, inspired by the Aventador J but even more aggressive, and completely made from lightweight carbon fiber, on the sides, just ahead of the front wheels a set of fins has been added too ... a bit strange in fact as the DMC Spezial Version Aventador was also a limited edition with only 10 kits to be sold ... still this specific Aventador also shows the amazing looking DMC crest at the front.
The original Oakley mounted HRE wheels have been replaced with PUR Wheels RS05 units measuring 9x20 inch up front and 12.5x21 inch at the rear in a glossy black finish with purple metallic accents to complete the look of the car that also received a matte purple metallic wrap on most of the body parts.
So is this now a 1 of 1 Dragon Edition, or a 1 of 1 DMC Spezial Version Aventador ... whatever we might call it, it sure is a one of a kind Lamborghini Aventador ... and that is what's most important to the owner I guess.
