While mostly known for its custom exhaust systems, Germany-based Capristo also develops other parts for sports and super cars like the Ferrari 458 Italia and in this case, the new Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4.
In stock form, the all-wheel drive Lamborghini model is fitted with a 6.5-liter V12 engine delivering 691hp (700PS) and it tips the scales at 1,575kg or 3,472 pounds.
Capristo's engineers began by stripping down the Aventador to its components and found a number of parts that could be replaced with lighter carbon-fibre composite materials formed in the same shape and styling of the original parts.
These included the front and rear aprons, rear diffuser, front grille, mirror housings, air intakes and even the trunk liner and engine compartment panels. All told, Capristo was able to shave 40kg (88 pounds) while also improving the performance of the V12 engine thanks to the new exhaust system.
While the tuning brand did not reveal how many horses were gained with the exhaust system, it did say that these changes help the Aventador reach 100km/h (62mph) 0.1 seconds faster than the regular model at 2.8 seconds, while top speed increases by 3km/h (2mph) to 354km/h (220mph).
Capristo said that it also working on cutting weight from the underbody, wheel housings and sills with details to be released in the near future.
