DMC Edizione-GT is a Lamborghini Aventador With a Fetish for Carbon Fiber

As if the 700 hp supercar from Sant’Agata Bolognese wasn’t already a shouty, purebred monster, DMC had its way with the Aventador and the end result is excessive. But hey, this is supercar wonderland we’re talking about here. If you don’t go all out with the visual drama, then you're not doing this right.

Baptized by the German tuner Edizione-GT stage 3 package, the Rosso & Grigio beast you can see in the gallery below is unit #3 in a very limited run of extremely customized Aventadors. If you ignore the gawky DMC badge up front, then there’s much to like about the new Edizione-GT Lamborghini Aventador.

Firstly, the red stripes and red accenting on the mirrors, front bumper and rear aerodynamic diffuser contrast nicely with the matte gray paint. Not sure about those yellow brake calipers, but still, this Lamborghini Aventador is all about carbon fiber.

The German tuner is a true carbon fiber fetishist if you look back at its previous creations

Most of the time, this sort of composite excess spoils a vehicle’s beauty. But on the Edizione-GT stage 3 kit it kind of makes everything better. Just look at the carbon fiber engine cover and the huge rear wing. Or those massive Venturis of the diffuser, offering real ground effects at illegal speeds.

As for the new face, it’s all wicked and it seems like it came out of Gotham City, but thou shall not pass any pothole or speed hump without scraping the carbon fiber it's made of. Custom suspension, a set of new wheels and some motorsport-inspired cabin trim round off this beast nicely. So what about enhancements to the oily bits and the presumably mind-boggling price of such a tune job?

Well, I don’t know how to soften the blow so here’s nothing - besides the price you already paid for the Aventador, the DMC Edizione-GT stage 3 pack adds a further $288,888 (EUR 224,828). That’s 6 grand short of a Ferrari FF, so it’s not really cheap. But then again, a brand spanking new FF doesn’t benefit from the twin-turbo conversion and ECU remap that hike the 6.5-liter V12’s output to 988 ponies.
