(from DMC Press Release) 2014 DMC Lamborghini Aventador LP988 E-GT by Zhuyumo
Lamborghini owners that seek to strenghten their Bull from St’Agata, most likely have Luxury Tuner DMC on their list of potential candidates. After 2 successfull kits (STAGE1:Molto Veloce & STAGE2:Spezial Version), their Limited Edition STAGE3: Edizione-GT became an unexpected monster. Another E-GT was recently built, and chosen by Chinese artist Zhuyumo for a series of breath taking photos that we want to share it with you herewith.
Is this car the de-factor Aventador Tuning Reference? It certainly seems so, since DMC's engineers are launching their STAGE3 while others are merely starting to enter the Aventador game. Dubbed the "Edizione-GT" or simply "E-GT", we now see why the car was developed with FIA regulations in mind. More surprising to hear, that it is completely street legal! According to our source, the total package will cost a whopping USD 288.888.
While the major bite is taken by the body kit and the engine upgrade, the remaining funds give you access to a special two tone paint, a set of forged alloy wheels, and interior make-over. DMC also flies your car from any part of the world to their workshop in Germany and back for installation. Parts can also be shipped globally to a DMC partner near your location, if you opt for the body kit only (USD 89.990).
Aforesaid body kit comes with completely newly designed front and rear bumpers, a breath-taking engine-bonnet replacement (which includes a motor cooling air-scoop) and side skirts. Furthermore, the package is defined by the presence of a massive GT-Spoiler that can be manually set to 3 different angles for different aerodynamics, isn't that a nice birthday gift!?
Honestly we have never seen so much Carbon fiber on a Lamborghini before, but we guess there's no such thing as <too much> when it comes to light-weight composits and super-cars, do you agree? The package is completed with a full array of tunnels, flaps and diffusers, all located on the parts mentioned above, truly making the car stand out uniquely in its future home.
That is, if you can get one: DMC informs us that the package is a LIMITED EDITION, that can't be purchased by simply offering money. Potential buyers have apply before being able to buy: Each unit is strictly limited to only one (1!) colour and/or style, making every one of them unque. DMC won't sell the same colour twice, so you would either need to change or discuss a special design pattern with the German engineers.
While DMC's previous engine modifications were achieved through individual intake throttle plates for each of the 12 cylinders, new fuel pumps, fuel lines, modulators and injection nozzles, the LP988 has been subject to a TWIN-TURBO procedure in combination with a reprogrammed ECU. A set of forged alloy wheels and a new kit of suspensions keep the beat on the road, but let's not forget that the aero parts were initially developed to cope for the stronger car performance.
It's worthwhile to mention that DMC guarantees again no visible damage by using their components, the car can be, at any time, be returned to the OEM look, which can be useful. Owners may keep the stock bumpers and they can be put back onto the car if needed.
The package is finalised with exclusive interior refinements using italian fine leathers and carbon finer. Plenty of buttons and trims are available as a small package, a redesigned steering wheel adds on to complete a medium package or the whole interior can be redone for the VIP package. Small and Medium Projects can be done remotely, but the car needs to be shipped to Germany if a whole interior make-over is requested.
