If you are a new tuning company, and you want to make a stand right from the start, tuning a Lamborghini might not be a bad idea, and with the three current models from Sant'Agata reaching record-setting production number the choice of which Bull to tame might be a difficult one.
At the time of writing, we've just seen the announcement a total of 10,000 Aventador have been built, about a year ago a total of 14,022 Huracan left the factory gates, and in early August 2020 the 10,000th Urus was completed ... still Marius Dumitrascu, from the new Marius Designhaus opted for the Lamborghini Super SUV, the Urus, as their first project car, aptly called the MD1 ... the Marius Designhaus nr 1.
And Marius Designhaus isn't doing half work, they came up with a complete aero kit for the Lamborghini Urus, made locally in Europe, from ultra-light, high-end carbon fiber, some parts even feature a Nomex honeycomb core and AISI 316 stainless steel for added durability, the screws used to fit the aero kit are made from grade 5 titanium, that's aeronautical quality.
As a first in the automotive tuning scene according to Marius Designhaus, they use a mix of carbon fiber and zylon on the bumpers for shock absorption, zylon is an evolution of kevlar used in racing, but now also available on the open road on the Urus MD1, another nice touch is the fact you can install the MD1 kit one piece at a time, only the front bumper, only one of the two rear wings ... it all fits together with the factory original parts.
The MD1 front bumper completely replaces the original part, massive air vents and a deep front spoiler are only a few characteristics of this aggressively styled front, add the new engine cover, once again with vents, and you completely change the front look of the Lamborghini Urus.
The fun continues on the side, with custom covers for the side mirrors, replacements for the front fenders, naturally with new side vents and redesigned wheel arch extensions both to the front and the rear ... combined with a pair of stunning side sills, with aerodynamic uprights in front of the rear wheels, similar to the ones found on the lower lip of the front bumper.
And the aggressive styling continues at the rear, a completely new lower diffuser with vertical fins that run right up to the rear hatch, air vent covers behind the rear wheels, and both an upper and a lower rear wing, one at the edge of the roofline, and one at the bottom of the rear window, if you look closely at the roof you'll notice two fins running from front to back ... that's not the luggage carrying system, but aero parts from Marius Designhaus.
On these photos it looks like Marius will develop center-lock wheels for their Lamborghini Urus MD1 kit, or at least center-lock look-alikes, whichever they go for, these wheels look great and suit the aggressive look of the MD1 perfectly.
Pricing hasn't been published on their website, but there is a pre-order button you can press, also note the MD1 production is limited to 30 units only, feel free to visit www.MariusDesignhaus.com to get in touch with them.
