Germany’s DMC can customize your Lambo

Special to The Detroit News

List price of the Lamborghini Aventador is around $400,000.

In exchange for your money, you get a truly exotic Italian sports car made of carbon fiber and aluminum and powered by a 6.5-liter V-12 engine that can propel you from a stop to 60 miles per hour in less than three seconds on your way to a top speed of 217 mph.

What more could you possibly want?

Well, German sports car tuner DMC offers its “Stage3: Edizione GT” package for the Aventador.

The price? Well, even DMC admits it’s a “whopping” amount — $288,888.

And what do you get for that money?

A body kit in two-tone design, an engine upgrade, forged alloy wheels and an interior makeover.

Oh, and DMC will fly your car to Germany for the installation and then fly it back to you.

That is, it will if your money is accepted in the first place. DMC says this is a truly “limited edition” package and that only one of each color or two-tone design will be made available, assuring that each Edizione GT version of the Aventador will be a unique vehicle.

It appears, however, that if you don’t want the full package, you may have the option of just buying the body kit for a mere $89,990. It includes new front and rear bumpers, engine cover replacement with air scoop for enhanced cooling, side skirts and huge GT spoiler that can be set to three different angles to meet your specific aerodynamic needs.

Should you ever decide you want your Aventador to look just like all the rest of the breed out there on the highways and byways, DMC guarantees that the body kit does no visible damage to the original car, which can be returned to its full original-equipment look, provided, of course, that you’ve retained those parts.

DMC’s Stage3 interior redo for this Lambo includes fine Italian leathers and carbon fiber trim, a redesigned steering wheel and more, with “small,” “medium,” and VIP-level packages available.

The small and medium projects can be handled by a DMC-approved shop in the United States, but DMC insists the car must go to Germany for the full VIP treatment.

Engine modifications include separate intake throttle plates for each of the 12 cylinders, new fuel pumps, fuel lines, modulations and injection nozzles, as well as a twin-turbocharger setup and reprogrammed engine control computer.

Suspension also is revised to deal with the increase in power and dynamic capabilities.

To bring the Stage3 package to market, DMC had Chinese artists Zhuyumo produce a series of photographs of the fully modified Aventador.

DMC Exotic Car Tuning Limited of Dusseldorf also offers luxury and tuning packages for Ferraris, McLarens, Bentleys, Porsches, Rolls-Royces and other high-end marques.
