Mansory, one of the world's most renowned Luxury car customizers, has taken the Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 to a whole new level. The Masory Carbonado "Black Diamond" ($CALL) has been so murdered out in carbon fiber, its almost invisible. But the body wasn't the only thing Mansory completely reworked. They also got their greedy little hads on the stock 6.5-liter V-12. In order to increase the punch, they added two Mansory turbochargers. Plus they replaced the pistons, connecting rods, rod bearings, crankshaft, crank and cylinder head with motor racing parts. Along with the newly designed exhaust system the Carbonado takes the stock 700 horses and blows it out of the water with an impressive 1250 horses. Torque has been limited to a still awe inspiring 664 lb-ft. With everything this whole kit gets a top speed of 236mph with a 0-60mph time of 2.6 seconds. Not too shabby.
