DMC's 1,000 hp Lamborghini Aventador Goes All Black

For those who find the 700 Raging Bulls of the Lamborghini Aventador insufficient, there are tuners who can play with that number in a rather... serious manner. DMC is one such aftermarket developer, with the company taking the V12 Lamborghini to almost 1,000 hp.

We've seen DMC's Aventador LP988 Edizione GT kit before, but now the tuning house has built an all-Black approach for a customer who wanted to play Batman or something.

The adjacent images offer you a pretty good taste of just how much darkness DMC packed into this Lambo. In fact, we are dealing with a super-complete carbon treatment for the Aventador's body here.

As almost every tuner that gets its hands on the Aventador, DMC couldn't resist the temptation to replace the supercar's active rear wing with a fixed element that's considerably larger - yes, we all know huge spoilers add hp, but this Lambo already had enough grunt, so we really don't know why the move was necessary.

Usually, when one talks about so much carbon, the price that accompanies the deal can be even more menacing than the look of the car. Well, this is no exception, as the DMC Aventador LP988 Edizione GT comes with a toll of EUR 224,828 or $288,888.

As for what goes on in the engine compartment, the 6.5-liter V12 receives a twin-turbo setup. As you can imagine, most of the parts that come in contact with the fuel have been remastered, while a new ECU map governs the changes.

To cope with the extra power, DMC has fitted its Aventador with a custom setup for the pushrod suspension, while the car now talks to the road via a set of bespoke forged wheels.

Climbing aboard, we find more restrained custom touches, such as a sports steering wheels. In case you were asking, yes, you can all this "gothic".
