Addiction to yellow unavoidable
With its ultimate finish for the Aventador's closed version Hamann already proved how to take the bull by the horns. At the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the experts from Laupheim will spotlight their development based on the fascinating roadster. Those who know Hamann know that the "Lambo" simply had to make an appearance that is even more uncompromising, even more spectacular. The refiner stepped up to the plate and now presents a fine and defined model concept that turns the open-top sportscar into an individualised masterpiece with unique traits.
The front is dominated by made-to-measure air vent inserts. The optical counterpart of this aerodynamics element is the two-piece front spoiler made of the same material, which provides for racing-grade down force and gives the front wheels increased grip. The airflow is optimised by striking side skirts that Hamann uses to trace the extravagant look. The voluminous air scoop on the bonnet supply the huge twelve-cylinder unit with plenty of cool air and underlines the model’s own character. Here, Hamann has integrated especially high-quality clear-coated carbon fibre, which allows a clear view of the Lamborghini power package.
The greatest optimisation efforts Hamann undertook at the rear of the Aventador. The car refiner replaced the rear apron and rear diffuser with its own designs and constructions made of ultra-lightweight carbon fibre. The adjustable rear spoiler is made of the same material and was developed specifically for the "Limited." The sport rear muffler, which Hamman also offers as racing version with an impressive "backfire" effect, is there to ensure a special and individual sound.
Highlights of the Swabian Lambo 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 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*.
In Geneva, Hamann presents the open "Limited Lambo" with the special "Giallo Orion" paint having a pearly yellow shimmer. The allusion to the constellation of the same name may be understood as "reach for the stars". The reason: Hamann fulfils every conceivable customer wish. Just one example: by request, the Lambo's interior turns into a distinctive individual item with carefully sewn leather applications on the dashboard, side coverings or high-speed seats.
Hamann 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.
